Letter: We need new voices to change the narrative

Editor,

Do Rep. Larsen, Sen. Cantwell, and Sen. Murray really want more war-mongering saber rattling in all caps in the wee hours by a president of the U.S. who is unhinged that his treason is going to be exposed, beginning with Manafort’s trial?

Me neither.

What can they do to stop him, so Mueller can proceed in peace and Rosenstein is protected? What can they do to make Devin Nunes behave as if he IS recused from anything to do with Russia? I’m counting on them to do it.

They need to speak out to encourage the free press to report on the truth of what is happening. This constant re-hashing of Donald J. Trump’s lies is costing us dearly.

They should begin the impeachment process or wrap him up in a straight jacket with the 25th Amendment, because his behavior is crazy.

I recognize a national level of emotional abuse, using tactics perfected by the Russians, that is brain-washing at least one-third of our population.

We need strategies and voices now to change the narrative. In education, in the free press, in teaching critical thinking and discernment skills.

We need to change the rhetoric, and those elected to represent us should take the lead in making this happen.
