Letter to the editor: Americans should welcome Mueller’s investigation
M. Sokol’s letter “Mueller has
nothing to show” (Sept. 2,
TribLIVE): How do you know that the special counsel has “zero evidence”? Are you a member of the investigating team? Are you not concerned as an American that a foreign government may have interfered with the democratic process the citizens of this nation covet, thus requiring an investigation into this most grave of situations?
Forget politics. We’re talking about a foreign government that may have decided who our next president would be. I don’t know about you, but as an American, I want to know — thus an investigation is essential. Five guilty pleas and 17 indictments leaves me to believe that, yes, there’s enough material to go forward. It is the sworn duty and responsibility of the Department of Justice to investigate.
Yep, there’s no criminal statute called “collusion,” but there is a crime called treason . Let’s pray that from the highest office of the land treason has not occurred.
Since you brought up the Clintons and “the Dems,” let me remind you that the Clintons, and especially Hillary, have been investigated — by Republicans — 24/7 for years and years. Whitewater, Benghazi, the emails … millions of taxpayers’ money was spent, and what has it reaped? Nothing.
We are only 17 months into this investigation. Give the special prosecutor the time needed to make a thorough investigation. Regardless of the outcome, we can start the healing process of the country.
