Letter: Trump wants to abuse power by targeting political opponents


“The saddest thing is, because I am the president of the United States, I am not supposed to be involved with the Justice Department,” Trump said. “I’m not supposed to be involved with the FBI. I’m not supposed to be doing the kind of things I would love to be doing, and I am very frustrated by it.”

Prosecuting political enemies in the absence of any probable cause is a hallmark of radical regimes that have seized power and don’t know what to do with it.

The Soviets did it. The Fascists did it. The Iranian revolutionaries did it. Now Trump and the Republicans are doing it. What else are they going to do, Govern?

What does it say about the judgement and morality of Republicans like Gov. Susana Martinez or Rep. Steve Pearce, that they voted for a President under Federal criminal investigation?
