Letter to the editor: Barr deceived us

Posted

Attorney General Barr purposely deceived the American public with his summary of the Mueller report. Mueller's team reported that he had mischaracterized the report, misleading and damaging the public's understanding of its conclusions.

It's important for each of us to be aware of the results of the report's investigation. It tells us how the Russians interfered with the 2016 election and how the Trump campaign was involved. It also provides multiple examples of Trump's interference into and obstruction of the Mueller investigation.

Though we're all very busy in our day-to-day lives, it's important for us to understand the conclusions reached in the Mueller report. They make clear the pressures being placed on our institutions by foreign agents and by corruption within our government. If we value the freedoms available to us in a democracy, we need to learn as much as we can so we can figure out what steps to take to resist these pressures. What can we do to make our democracy stronger?

Please read the report for yourself. Then you can help others to understand what it says and why it's important: for the integrity of our elections and for strengthening our democratic values. Though it may not seem to matter much to our everyday lives, understanding the threats to our way of life help us protect against them. Reading the Mueller report will teach us about what we're up against.

Carol Stallworth,

Golden
