Beyond partisan politics…

Open letter to Mr. Labrador, Mr. Risch, Mr. Crapo,

I am a constituent of yours from North Idaho.

Mr. Trump has fired FBI Director Comey, and today—Friday, May 12—Mr. Trump threatened Mr. Comey with secret tapes. Good. Mr. Trump should release ALL of his secret recordings.

A bipartisan Special Counsel MUST be appointed to look into the Russian hacking into our elections, the contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia, and the financial connections between the Trump and Kushner organizations and the Russian leadership.

I want you to know that my friends, neighbors and I wish that this Special Counsel investigation now take precedence over ANY and ALL other issues. No more immigration reform. No more health reform.  No more tax reform. No more gun rights reforms. No more executive actions. A good place to start is the release of all of Mr. Trump’s tax returns. Mr. Trump and his Government has access to our returns, let’s look at his.

This has gone far beyond partisan politics. These questions concern threats to our system of government. Nothing else matters.

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
