Letter: The Democrat double standard

To the Editor:

The double standard is alive and well in America. Hillary Clinton put our security at risk through the use of a private server for classified communications. When asked to provide her emails to Congress, she deleted thousands of emails, wiped the server clean, and smashed her computers.

The DOJ and FBI closed their eyes to her transgressions. If the FBI had responded by raiding her lawyer’s office, the media and ACLU would have been outraged. When she lost the election, her supporters contrived a story about Russian/Trump collusion.

Enter Robert Mueller, appointed to head an investigation into possible collusion between Russia and President Trump. Millions of dollars and untold hours have been spent, and no such collusion has been found.

But that’s not the end of his investigation. It is obvious that his main goal is to destroy the President and he will stop at nothing to reach his goal, going so far as raiding Michael Cohen’s office, home and hotel room, destroying the lawyer-client privilege between the President and his lawyer.

Alan Dershowitz, law professor and liberal-minded Democrat wrote: “The essence of civil liberties is that they must be equally applicable to all. The silence among civil libertarians regarding the recent raid shows that we are losing that valuable neutrality.”

The vitriol that is spewed by the political left toward the President is extremely detrimental toward our country, but they are blind to anything but their hatred for Donald Trump.
