Letter: Respect the will of the people?

(Richard Drew | AP file photo) Hillary Clinton speaks during the TIME 100 Summit in New York on April 23, 2019.

I’m writing in response to Scott Miller’s Nov. 6 letter to the public forum.

Scott, your and the GOP’s “impeachment sham process” argument so quickly unravels upon close examination. Let’s start with one of your points about respect for the will of the people expressed by an election.

If the will of the people were respected, we would have a President Hillary Clinton, as she received over 3 million more votes than Trump.

You bring up Newt Gingrich’s “fairness” process during the Bill Clinton impeachment process, but fail to mention that the GOP had first hired Kenneth Starr to investigate Clinton. Starr’s investigation didn’t include any hearings, public or private.

Your urging of Salt Lake County residents to reject the current Trump impeachment inquiry based on fairness is asking all of us to overlook what is at the heart of the matter, which is Trump engaged in an act of bribery with a foreign country for personal political gain.

Please stop insulting the people of Utah.

Ryan Hinkins, Salt Lake City
