Letter: Trump must be investigated

Kyllo writes, "The fact that Trump is a former president does not make him immune to the laws of this country or investigations when evidence suggests that criminal offenses may have occurred."

In response to the letter " What are Democrats afraid of? " by Dennis Gullickson:

Democrats are not afraid of former President Donald Trump but they are concerned about the future of our democracy, the damage that Trump has already done to our democracy both domestically and internationally and the damage that he will continue to do to our democracy if allowed.  They are also concerned about the damage of the precedent that would be set by not investigating Trump’s efforts to bypass our laws of democracy for his own gain. 

The Department of Justice currently has two known active investigations connected to Trump, one concerning his effort to overturn the 2020 presidential election and the other involving his possible violation of laws concerning the handling of classified documents violating the Presidential Records Act. According to the evidence uncovered in both investigations so far, it would be ignorant to make a claim that Trump has not broken laws in both investigations. 

The fact that Trump is a former president does not make him immune to the laws of this country or investigations when evidence suggests that criminal offenses may have occurred.  Breaking laws in place for the protection of our democracy without investigation and/or prosecution is not and should not be a privilege enjoyed even by a former president of the United States and is something that this country should not tolerate.  Setting such a precedence would signal a major step towards the downfall of our democracy.

Tom Kovach of Nevis, Minn., writes, "it is a myth to say that the Americas before the arrival of white people was some sort of Utopia. It wasn't. American Indians fought among each other. There were slaves taken in battle. There were lean times with lack of game or droughts and even human sacrifice. That doesn't excuse the actions of white people, but it certainly wasn't all happy, prosperous times for American natives."

Leo F.J. Wilking of Fargo writes, "Bette Grande’s recent column, “Its Democrats who are a threat to ‘our democracy,” begins with a definition of the word “projection.” She then writes that it is President Biden and his followers who are responsible for violence and threats of violence. This is in keeping with Grande’s “Alice in Wonderland” view of current affairs.
Henry Holtgard of Fargo writes, "They claim the house is a Frank Lloyd Wright house but it was but it was actually designed by his granddaughter. Frank Lloyd Wright actually turned it down. Just because the house is on a historical registry means nothing when it's not real. Its was put on the registry to stop the buyout."
