Letter to the editor: Americans should welcome Mueller’s investigation

Regarding Stephen
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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
