Letter: Protect election from danger


“President, enablers must be removed” by George Will should be required reading for anyone wishing to understand the state of the U.S. presidency. The always-eloquent Will casts aside his normally reserved manner in calling loudly for the ousting of President Donald Trump and his enablers in Congress.

Will’s call for Trump’s removal is all the more urgent in light of Trump’s unconstitutional clearance of peaceful protesters from Washington, D.C.’s Lafayette Square, and for unleashing the U.S. military on civilian citizens.

Trump’s paranoid governing style is reminiscent of Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin: elevating then disposing of insufficiently “loyal” officials, reinventing history, and wreaking violence on his own citizens. Trump’s actions signal his intent to corrupt and disrupt the November election in order to remain in power. I urge Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, and all governors, to take measures to protect the entire electoral process from the dangerous current occupant of the White House.
