Letter to the editor: Unacceptable in a free country

To the editor:

By now, it should be obvious to everyone that Donald Trump is being persecuted, not prosecuted. He is under a gag order, so he is even denied freedom of speech. He has been charged under more than 90 questionable indictments.

In his current trial, he is charged with obtaining business loans by inflating his net worth. This is not even a crime. The obviously overly dramatic New York Attorney General who has never charged anyone else with fraud over this, and who had a failed governor’s race and is looking for public exposure, is overlooking the fact that banks approved these loans and they have been paid back.

During this sham trial, he has been badgered by yes and no questions that cannot be answered yes or no. The obviously compromised judge has threatened him that if he doesn’t give yes or no answers, he will be removed from the proceedings and they will answer the questions for him. How can public officials who are charged with enforcing the law get away with such obvious abuse of their offices?

Some states are trying to remove him from the ballot even before the trials are completed. Now, the extremely hateful New York AG is going after his kids.

It doesn’t matter if you like Trump or not, this is totally unacceptable in a free country.
