Trump introduced labeled paperwork residence;
the place are the law-and-order Republicans?
The Republican silence is deafening. Hillary’s use of her non-public e mail server brought on screams of “Lock her up,” condemnation and turmoil that it shook the very foundations of Washington.
Now we be taught that Trump ripped up paperwork and that his aides had to tape them again collectively. We are additionally studying that Trump introduced 15 boxes of documents residence with him. Although these paperwork weren’t safe, some had been marked as classified The last insult was Trump flushing paperwork down the rest room.
Where is Ted Cruz? Where is Louie Gohmert? Where is Ken Paxton? Where is Gov. Abbott? Where are any of these law-and-order Republicans? Their silence and is a risk to our democracy.
Can I get a “Lock him up”?

Relying on print sources in search
for factual and full reporting
Re: Feb. 12 commentary, “How to lose your viewers.”
I agree with Kathleen Parker’s evaluation of the change at CNN since its inception again in the early ’80s. However, she should not overlook what has occurred over at Fox.
It’s modified from “We report, you decide” to leisure and editorializing, leaving me and 1000’s like me questioning the place to go for precise, factual and full reporting. Too usually the speaking heads omit essential data and context so as to slant the reporting in a specific manner.
It leaves me shaking my head. Oh, by the manner, I’ve eschewed CNN, Fox, MSNBC and the different cable sources, and search written sources of reports comparable to the Statesman, however nonetheless surprise if I get the whole story. Fortunately, I’m retired and have the time to search a number of sources of data so as to get the full story. Sorry that the remainder of the nation doesn’t have that luxurious.

It’s unfair to blame Biden for the way
the warfare led to Afghanistan
Re: Feb. 13 commentary, “Why is Ukraine America’s drawback?”
I do know Marc Thiessen’s column runs beneath the class “From the Right” however he has gone overboard in blaming President Biden for the unlucky ending of the warfare in Afghanistan.
His criticism is called the “Johnny at the Bat” principle. Poor Johnny is at bat in the backside of the ninth with two outs. Alas, Johnny goes down swinging. And the cries come up from the crowd, “Johnny misplaced the sport for us” and “Kick Johnny off the group.” Never thoughts that Johnny made just one out of 27 outs.
Yes, our president made the final out however he was preceded by Presidents Bush, Obama, and Trump, anybody who may have ended the sport themselves. President Biden inherited a fait accompli from Trump’s misguided schedule to abandon Afghanistan.
