Letter to the editor: Trump’s new low

So sad to see the sickening commercials that Donald Trump is airing to counter his inevitable impeachment by the House of Representatives. He repeats the debunked conspiracy theory of the Biden family’s alleged misdoings in the Ukraine. By doing so, I believe he is actually admitting to one of the articles of impeachment, that he sought the aid of a foreign nation in his 2020 campaign.

The premise that this is being done to overturn the results of the election is ridiculous. It is being done because Trump, in my opinion, has no respect for his office or the Constitution he swore to defend. The current smearing of lifetime civil servants and decorated lifetime military personel may a new low for him. Do patriotism, honor and duty to country mean nothing to this man whose short time as a public servant has been marked by self-enrichment, nepotism, cronyism and possibly corruption?

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
