Editor: Regarding the letter of June 15 by Charlene Travelstead, I have this to say: Trump was originally being investigated during the primaries in 2016, along with other candidates, by the Washington Free Beacon Conservatives that also produced Steel’s Dossier. The investigations had nothing to do with the fact that Trump won the election.

Previous Presidents showed their tax returns: Ronal Reagan, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama. Trump is the only modern President to not show his taxes. Trump promised as a presidential candidate that he would release his taxes, but later refused.

Not one Congressman, Republican or Democrat, has shown their taxes. Maybe they should. The President is the leader of our country. Before we elect them we need to know that they are not compromised. If they have nothing to conceal, then what is it they fear?

As for impeachment, Pelosi is not for it.

You seem to have no problem that Trump may have violated his oath of office to preserve and protect our Constitution but yet you seem to have no problem that Clinton was impeached by the House over sex.

What I find most interesting with DOT’s is their complete and utter refusal to defend the lying draft dodger currently squatting in the White House. I note they always have time to insult or attack me whenever I ask that they explain how they can support a con-man with a record of more than 10,000 lies since assuming the office or explain why he has reneged on many of his PROMISES. Just for laughs I will, once again, post just a few of his promises (any DOT is welcome to address them) - 1) He promised Mexico would pay for the wall, but now wants to saddle the American taxpayers with an expensive (well over $5 billion) ego edifice wall that will solve nothing, outside of proving yet again that walls don’t work. 2) He promised he would replace the ACA – called Obamacare by the intellectually stunted - and it would cost us less and cover more people. However insurance companies are telling us with the abandonment of the individual mandate, rates are already increasing by 30% to 40% per year and will cover fewer people. 3) He promised he would release his taxes after he took office. He hasn't yet released them and is threatening to “sue Congress” to prevent the American people seeing the truth. What is he hiding? 4) He promised he would solve our trade deficit. After launching his trade wars, our trade deficit surged to an all time high. 5) He promised he would solve the budget deficit. Instead it has already doubled under his so-called leadership. 6) He promised us a better deal with Iran. But under the "new Trump deal" Iran can pursue nukes TODAY. And now he is lying (no surprise there) in hopes of leading us into yet another war. 7) Admittedly he did promise during the campaign that if we voted for Hillary, we'd have a president constantly under Federal investigation. And in that, he was correct.
