Little evidence Democrats behind FBI saving Clinton

Little evidence Democrats behind FBI saving Clinton

This letter is in regard to your editorial, “Bias in FBI leadership a sad disappointment.” While I have respected your voice in many of your editorials, I disagree with your conclusion that Robert Mueller’s probe into possible collusion between the Trump Administration and Russia is a witch hunt and a Democratic Party engineered fraud.

Much of your argument stems from many assertions that imply Peter Strzok and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe acted together in a secret plot to undermine the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails in the fall of 2016. In reality, there are only the questionable texts of one agent. There is nothing else, no real evidence, that can be used to prove this point other than a willingness to look for innuendo to complete a wished for picture – that the FBI is working on behalf of the Democratic Party.

There is however, a heckuva lot of evidence that indicates that the man who is President of the United States acted in conjunction with the long-term enemy of our country to interfere in the very democratic process of electing our leader. It doesn’t matter if the person doing this is Republican, or Democrat or of any other party. What matters is that an effort to undermine the very principles which our country was based upon seems to have occurred and this must be fully investigated.

I understand that partisanship grips our country and that people on both sides of the aisle are caught up in it but we cannot allow the principles, traditions, and spirit of our country to be trampled and become a casualty of our petty squabbles.

Publisher’s Note: Mr. Powers writes: “There is however, a heckuva lot of evidence that indicates that the man who is President of the United States acted in conjunction with the long-term enemy of our country to interfere in the very democratic process of electing our leader.” In fact, there is little if any evidence so far. We all await Mr. Mueller’s findings.
