Russian investigation deeper than Trump’s actions

Print Article

Some might say of my LTE addiction: “Some idle yet addible thoughts from an addled brain”. But I march onward. Here goes:

The whole investigation of Russian interference goes way deeper and beyond just Trump’s behavior, beliefs and tweets. This interference attacks all three branches of America’s system of government; the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. For any pieces, parts, or people of these branches to interfere with our Special Council’s investigative process is treasonous. And now that the word “treason” has been brought ‘front and center’ by our president the other day, let’s seriously and honestly consider America’s present danger.

The ‘will of the people’ is without a doubt our most powerful control over all three (3) branches of our government. It just takes time, but time can be the most empowering and dynamic ultimate healer.

It seems to me, that as I listen and watch our media report and pontificate, 2018 is going to be a pivotal year. Either we, as a nation, move to bring our people and parties together in preserving our democracy, or we tear apart essential aspects bit-by-bit and fall under the ‘Pandering to Putin” philosophy leading to chaos and confusion.

America builds upon our past achievements and mistakes. We need to honor our past, not fall victim to personal attacks and divisive attitudes. In Donald Trump’s “State Of The Union” address, every single thing he took personal credit for on the economy, employment, wages, and positive momentum was the continuation of corrective policies and programs put in place by previous administrations. Keep it going, Donald!

And, lastly: Winston Churchill, a man our POTUS should read and internalize, said this about diplomacy, that essential skill for a leader to possess in avoiding catastrophic conflicts. “Diplomacy is the art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that they ask for directions.”

Bob McClellan, Polson
