To the Editor:
Donald Trump won the 2016 election and Hilary Clinton lost. We need to move on from that election.
That being said, there is a rule of law in this country, which means all people are subject to and accountable to law that is fairly applied and enforced. Special prosecutor Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate Russian interference in our presidential election. His appointment was greatly applauded by Republicans and Democrats alike. Mueller is a Republican, first appointed by George Bush Jr. to head up the FBI, where he served with distinction for 12 years. So far in the investigation, two people have pleaded guilty to lying (including former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn), and another has been charged on multiple counts.
The media headlines as of late report that President Trump is considering firing Robert Mueller. If he does that, he would be breaking the rule of law, which is the bedrock of our democracy. It is what separates us from the majority of other countries, where those in the most powerful positions are above the laws and can do whatever they want. One cannot be allowed to fire the appointed person investigating your administration. The people cannot allow that to happen without great repercussions. This investigation needs to run its course.
