To the Editor,
It is said that intelligence is the ability to entertain a concept, to see its virtues and faults all the while not having to accept it as one's own or see it as threat to one's own understanding.
So be it.
I just finished reading a synopsis of the report of the special investigation of Robert Mueller presented to congress by Attorney General Barr. I suggest each and every citizen to read it for themselves before following the flood of opinions and conclusions soon to run rampant from those feeling vindicated for their support of the innocence of *President Trump, as well as those who saw the Mueller investigation as some sort of revelation of a deep seeded conspiracy of corruption within this administration.
What was released to general knowledge was neither. Nor will it be anything else.
What it is is a reaffirmation that the process of law still works. That we can still question, and through our government, investigate both the blatent and possible abuse of the public trust.
It is of this opinion, based on what I read, that our *President is not innocent. Nor is he guilty of anything where the evidence against him would be enough to indict or impeach. But I do accept that the findings of this investigation are what they are in the face of a deluge of conclusions from either fringe of political thought.
There are still more investigations. There will still be the possibility of charges of high crimes and misdemeanors being leveled at this * President. And the continuation of the processes of constitutional law will run its course. Let us be patient to its time. Let us accept its existence. Let us understand that any rush to judgement without that process not only undermines the product thereof, but as well as the very reason it was put in place. Let it work.
For us to remain a free and just people in an environment of percieved injustice and corruption, we must stand on the values and principles that makes us as great as we already are. And we do not need any one person or his administration telling us what we already know for ourselves.
Or will find out.
