Continue the unfinished business of the Mueller Report
Liz Goodwin and Jess Bidgood’s article “Peril for Trump in Mueller aftermath” (Page A1, April 21) was a relief. The Mueller report confirms the need to keep investigating Donald Trump’s wrongdoings. Congress has been handed a directive to continue the unfinished business necessary to change the dangerous course this country is on due to a reality show called the Trump presidency.
Investigating the investigators is a smoke screen. Trump’s uncontrollable impulse to settle scores will cause him to self-destruct. Although he may not have colluded with the Russians’ election interference, he certainly collided with it and accepted the benefits. You don’t have to murder someone committing political suicide. Trump usually cites “everyone” when he tries to make up support for many of his ill-advised ideas. This time we all know he obstructed justice. Now we have a chance to do something about it and save our country.
We have come a long way from George Washington, who could not tell a lie, to a president who cannot tell the truth.
