Letter to the Editor: Government needs common sense
Letter To The Editor

From Dave Searles


To the Editor: 

The new Congress in January needs to pass legislation that codifies what was common sense and traditional concerning the Office of the President that Trump has deliberately ignored or violated. This includes putting assets into a blind trust, submitting business and personal tax returns for public scrutiny, prohibiting the Attorney General of the United States from acting as the personal attorney of the president, prohibiting the ignoring of specific laws that the president does not like, prohibiting a president from pardoning themselves for crimes they have committed and for associates that committed crimes on behalf of a president, prohibiting backdoor investigations of political foes for political purposes, and requiring an accuracy, honesty and truth in announcements and news coming out of the White House without contradicting experts, facts and science or polarizing issues.
