Stop obstructing 'justice for all'

It doesn’t make sense to me that many would like to end the Mueller investigation that is uncovering crime and producing guilty pleas. Isn’t that what investigations are for?

Is it that opposers don’t want justice pursued? Is it that they want to make sure they, or their friends, don’t turn up under the next rock? They don’t have to worry if they haven’t done anything wrong.

Wanting productive investigations ended doesn’t look like the American way to me. Remember the Pledge of Allegiance: “ … justice for all.” Any time a criminal gets away with crime, people, sometimes many people, are being deceived and cheated. Should that be overlooked now in America?

Let’s be honest and face facts. Anyone, be it politician or ordinary citizen, who wants a productive investigation shut down before the job is done is guilty of obstructing justice.
