LETTER: Donald Trump made his own bed

In his Thursday column, Rich Lowry wrote: “It’s hard to imagine what’s more extreme than one side in our politics indicting its leading opponent, creating the real prospect of jailing him in the months prior to an election and excluding from the ballot in select states.”

We don’t need to imagine anything more extreme. It already happened when Donald Trump, as a sitting American president, tried to overthrow the U.S. government by nullifying votes for Joe Biden and stealing a second term for himself.

Mr. Lowry apparently thinks that Mr. Trump should be shielded from the 14th Amendment and from criminal prosecution for his insurrection because he is running for re-election now. No. It is our obligation as Americans to enforce the law with the same vigor as we would if Mr. Trump were not running for re-election. Mr. Trump created this mess. No one should expect that society would do nothing as a consequence.

Two Friday articles remind us that our “justice system” does not work well. It works better as an “injustice” system.

I suggest that our politicians spend less time attacking each other and more time developing a plan to reduce inflation.

LETTER: Jacky Rosen runs from her Democrat-ness

As a lifelong Democrat, I agree with Cobey Du’bravo’s Wednesday letter in which he criticized Sen. Jacky Rosen’s campaign ad for implying she is a maverick Democrat.
