Teater letter: Sen. Jim Risch

Senator Jeff Flake criticized Trump for his “flagrant disregard of truth and decency.” Sen. Risch’s big concern was not that Sen. Flake was entirely correct as far as he went or Trump’s white supremacist and neo-nazi sympathies according to his own post Charlottesville “many fine people” comment or that a group of psychiatrists wrote to Congress saying, in part, “It no longer takes a psychiatrist to recognize the alarming patterns of impulsive, reckless and narcissistic behavior. … We now find ourselves in a clear and present danger, especially concerning North Korea and the president’s command of the U.S. nuclear arsenal.” And Sen. Rich is only concerned about public comments by his fellow Republicans? Seriously? I have always believed that Risch puts his party and his own power before the good of the nation and now Risch’s own words make that absolutely clear. For the good of the nation and the world, Trump must be removed from office.
