Corruption getting thicker

Some people have questioned whether special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation should continue.

It has been established that Russia cyberattacked our electoral process in 2016. Mueller has indicted 39 individuals for conspiracy to defraud the U.S. election. At the top of the list are Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and national security adviser, Mike Flynn.

Wikileaks’ Julian Assange is about to be swept up in the net for his interface with the Russians in the dissemination of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee.

After Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, he appointed Matt Whitaker to do his bidding, such as prosecuting former FBI Director James Comey and Hillary Clinton.

Parallels to Watergate abound, not the least of which is improper White House contact with the Justice Department and disregard for the rule of law. We do not order prosecution of political opponents in our democratic process.
