President Trump is calling for the Justice Department to investigate the anonymous author of an op-ed that appeared in the New York Times. He claims it is treasonous, but by the standards, the Supreme Court defines what treason is. It is not. He is in total violation of his oath of office that states: "I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Vladimir Putin is hoping to restore Russia to superpower status using cyber warfare. Yet, Putin's spy world has been penetrated by American intelligence. The detailed indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officers recently released by Robert Mueller investigators proved that. The indictment included names, dates, unit assignments and the GRU's use of malware, its covert funding schemes and a wealth of other spycraft. I believe Putin must be asking himself: How did the Americans find out all these facts? What else does America know?
President Trump acts unhinged because that is all he knows how to do. He is fearful that his base will abandon him because of his failure to deliver his signature idea of a $25 billion dollar Mexican wall that Congress refuses to fund.
Our United States Constitution says no one is above the law, not even the president of the United States. President Trump has consistently tried to politicize the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to his own advantage. Trump's childish mind believes the DOJ and FBI should shutdown all the meanies investigating his alleged obstruction of justice or Russian involvement in his campaign. Trump tried to obtain a loyalty oath from FBI director James Comey, when he asked him to go easy on his national security advisor. When Comey didn't, he fired him.
I'm writing in response to Richard Biberdorf's letter, "Amad attempts to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear." I wonder if Biberdorf has ever read the English version of the Koran (Quran) before he spews off his falsehoods. Christianity teaches to: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you," but we still have wars and crime. Any public library should have a copy of the English version of the Koran, even in Carrington.
At least 29 states are pushing back or outright refusing to comply with the Trump administration's request for voter registration data. This is nothing more than an egomaniacal idiotic witch hunt that President Trump dreamed up to investigate his widely debunked claim that millions of illegal voters cost him the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election.
Mr. Jack Uehran of Jamestown, N.D., let me thank you for your years of military service to our nation. (Inforum June 5) Having said that, your tirade about the news media and the Russian involvement in our last election is off base. All of our security agencies—the FBI, CIA, NSA—all agree that Russia meddled in our presidential election and our president has largely ignored that information calling it fake news. Apparently, like our president, you don't hold much confidence in their Findings.
I believe the American people and the credibility of the world's oldest democracy require a complete impartial investigation, with a special independent prosecutor, into the extent of Russia's meddling into the 2016 presidential election. Did high-ranking members of the Trump campaign conspire in that effort and was President Trump directly involved? Which would be a treasonous act.
Kevin Cramer's comments regarding the women who wore white to President Donald Trump's joint address to Congress is absolutely inexcusable; especially when he refused to apologize. Comments like they were "poorly" dressed, they looked " silly" and that he didn't buy their reason they wore white was to honor the suffrage movement are equally unjustifiable.
In 2008, Barack Obama told his supporters, of which I was one. "We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
