Is Donald Trump Jr. a traitor? Is the Russia story a faux scandal?
“Media’s hysteria on Trump and Russia is out of control,” July 12 Ed Rogers column.
Ed Rogers of The Washington Post calls the Donald Trump Jr. interaction with a Russian operative “the last gasp of a faux scandal.” Really? Ask Benedict Arnold. He colluded with the British during the Revolutionary War to undermine the ability of our forces to win the war. Now his name is synonymous with the word “traitor.”
Trump Jr. admits to doing something equally noxious. He actively sought out to collude with our long-time enemy Russia to undermine the integrity of our national election system. Our system of elections, free from the influence of foreign powers, is the bedrock of our democracy.
Young, naive, new to the game of politics? Nope, that doesn’t fly. Any American citizen knows full well that you don’t allow Russia to in any way, shape or form influence the outcome of our national elections. ●●●
“Russia collusion? Sure looks like it,” July 12 editorial.
The imbecility of The Denver Post never ceases to amuse and astound me. To conflate the “damning” evidence (i.e., Donald Trump Jr. meeting with a Russian lawyer) with collusion, contrary to the consensus of legal experts, is not only misleading, but disgraceful. Given Hillary Clinton’s clear violation of the law, one can just as easily make a case that it was a civic duty to find out what information the lawyer possessed. After all, doesn’t the American public have a right to know?
The “smoking gun” ballyhooed by Democrats and The New York Times (and The Denver Post) is really only them blowing smoke.
If Russia’s goal is to disrupt the efficiency and workings of our federal government, it has succeeded. No real governing is happening. Only attack and subsequent defensive attack among the branches of government and media are happening.
