The letter from Will Heierman dismissing the investigation into the Trump administration still has me scratching my head.
He suggests that it’s much ado about nothing and those making the allegations are “disenfranchised gremlins.”
James Comey is no disenfranchised gremlin, nor partisan flamethrower. John Boehner, who said this week that the Trump presidency is a disaster, was the GOP Speaker of the House. Micheal Flynn is a staunch Republican. Flynn lied on his security clearance application and now we hear that AG Jeff Sessions did the same. Comey composed contemporaneous memos detailing how Trump asked him to back off the investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign.
It’s important to note that very little of this has been denied by the White House. Mr. Heierman suggests that we give greater credence to the President’s explanation of events. Okay, let’s do that. In the interview with Lester Holt, Trump himself said that the “Russia thing” motivated him to fire Comey. That comes perilously close to an outright admission of obstruction of justice by Trump himself.
The American people have a right to demand answers, and the Trump administration has an obligation to provide them.
