Letter: Impeachment hypocrisy

To the Editor:

The sheer mendacity and treasonous corruption of our so-called president and his fascist right-wing enablers are both frightening and astonishing.

The patriotic whistleblowers who are defending our Constitution, democracy and rule of law should receive Purple Hearts. Instead, they are subjected to illegitimate right-wing demonization and attempted cover-up. Donald Trump’s own words in the read-out he released of his phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy confirmed he withheld military aid as a quid pro quo for manufacturing propaganda and dirt on Joe Biden’s son.

He then proceeded to coerce Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, his personal so-called lawyer Rudy Giuliani, his corrupt Attorney General William Barr, a sycophantic $1 million donor, hotelier and unqualified Ambassador Gordon Sondland, as well as willing and unwilling co-conspirators to put his plan in motion.

Trump then claims he is only trying to root out corruption. The hypocrisy is breathtaking.

This from a lifelong pathological liar, conman, fraud, money laundering, tax-evading, insurance and bank fraud swindler running the most corrupt administration in American history.

If Trump really wanted to tackle corruption, he should begin with his own resignation, along with his administration of grifters and lobbyists tasked to destroy the very agencies they lead.

The cronyism of having a corrupt AG’s son-in-law as White House counsel while the AG’s daughter oversees the treasury, allowing her to hide Trump’s tax returns, is astounding.

The nepotism from those who failed their own security clearances, such as Ivanka Trump, who accepted bribes in the form of patents from China and Jared Kushner’s billions in loans from Saudi Arabia to rescue his failing real estate investments, should preclude finger-pointing.

Trump’s boys use the Oval Office to profit from emoluments.

Campaign fraud violations that funnel money from our adversaries, taxpayers and foreign governments into the pockets of the Trump Crime Family Syndicate.

All protected by a Republican Party, afraid to defend the Constitution because they fear Twitter and an electorate of brainwashed Fox News viewers.

Trump creates a gigantic smokescreen by investigating the Bidens, the investigators and whistleblowers who are exposing this massive corruption, none of which have broken any laws.
