Russia meddled in our democracy.

The summary by President Trump’s own appointed attorney general reflects that the Mueller investigation has laid-out a clear and comprehensive case of such Russian meddling. That case has been backed up by multiple indictments.

President Trump has said that “it is a shame that our country had to go through this. It’s a shame that your president has had to go through this.”

The job of a president is to protect and defend the Constitution, not to complain about the inconvenience of it all. . . .

And this point of personal privilege:  My dad, who died in 1983, would have turned 100 today.  A man of exceptional talent and integrity.  How lucky were my brother and I to have had such amazing, loving parents.  And what a century it has been.  I wish he’d gotten to see a lot more of it.
