Letter: Grassley asked to save democracy

Sen. Chuck Grassley,

You were happy to endorse Donald Trump for POTUS. You also were happy to ignore the intent of our Constitution by refusing to allow hearings of President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court justice nomination.

Your actions supported a man who as president is showing he wants to be a “ruler” not a “negotiator.”

President Trump’s choices of cabinet members and advisers have weakened the United States. I fear for our future.

Can you help save our democracy?

Roger Schnittjer
