Trump is right - there's a witch hunt

It's The Baltimore Sun editorial board's opinion that President Donald J. Trump's response to investigation of Michael Cohen is inappropriate and unconvincing ("The 'total witch hunt' that clearly isn't," April 10). The fact of the matter is that, according to the Sun (aka "The Calvert Street Democratic Club"), everything President Trump does is inappropriate and unconvincing. Special counsel Robert Mueller has been chasing him for more than a year now and has found absolutely nothing. I think that to most sensible people this would qualify as a witch hunt.

You state that the president's real problem isn't that federal prosecutors and their FBI investigators are agents of Hillary Clinton. I beg to differ. This is what it's about. If it is the mission of the prosecutors and the FBI to follow the law, Ms. Clinton would have been prosecuted and imprisoned a long time ago.

You state that we are left with a more alarming fact that that Mr. Trump can't keep his focus on his actual job long enough even to discuss the life and death possibility of military strikes and instead is focusing on his own personal legal situation. But as you know, this is all a part of the Democratic Party and the "lame stream media" playbook which is to keep obstructing the president and destroy his presidency. What kind of leader is he? Well, his many accomplishments speak for themselves. He has accomplished more in his 15 months in the White House than than Barack Obama in his entire eight years. He is the leader the country needs for the times we now live in.

You state that that the president considers an effort to hold him and his allies accountable to the law to be an attack on our country. But what crime has he committed? What President Trump wants is fair and equal treatment under the law, as we now have a two-tiered criminal justice system There are one set of laws for Ms. Clinton, Mr. Obama and their goons, and another set of laws for the rest of us.
