Letter: Evidence of collusion does not exist

The Russians have been trying to interfere in our elections since the 1960s.

We should not be spending the people’s money on a special counsel as our House and Senate Intelligence committees can handle any probe into the Russian matter. All 14 lawyers hired as counsel members thus far are Democrat donors. This is not bipartisan; this is a conflict of interest. Leaks have been surfacing from this special counsel committee, Robert Mueller is a close friend of James Comey and Comey is one of the central figures in this investigation. All reasons for Mueller to step down or be removed from this position. This committee is not bipartisan and is unnecessary.

There is no evidence of collusion between Donald Trump, any of those around him and the Russians to interfere with our elections

Let President Donald Trump do his job. Congress should be supporting him and assist in passing his legislative agenda. Trump was elected president fair and square and we should respect that. Shame on Congress, liberal judges, Hollywood, the media and special interest groups in trying to discredit this man.

We should be happy he is willing to change his life to help America get back on track. The establishment and people in D.C. have become rich and powerful on the taxpayers dime; dishonest and un-American.

We have elected people to drain the swamp and we expect them to follow through with that promise.
