Letter: The president should be grateful for the process

(Manuel Balce Ceneta | Associated Press file photo) President Donald Trump speaks to reporters during a visit to Lake Okeechobee and Herbert Hoover Dike at Canal Point, Fla., Friday, March 29, 2019.

Investigations happen all the time, and many people are either declared to remain innocent or proven guilty. This president should be grateful to the process that it was exhaustive and thorough.

This president should quit acting as though he is the only person who ever was investigated for something that he was close enough to, that it warranted a look. Remember that across America many investigations are not as thorough, and many innocent people litter our jail cells and prisons.

President Trump constantly talks about “witch hunts,” but does he remember where that term comes from? Remember all the innocent people actually hanged for being “witches”?

We’re lucky we have moved forward (mostly) from those times. Remember Rubin Carter? Remember Sacco and Vanzetti? Remember the West Memphis Three? Let’s move on.
