Dear Editor,

I am alarmed as I have ever been for our country. We have a President who seems totally out of control, who is in a condition of raw, naked rebellion against law, structure, order and every one of the commandments that as the leader of a nation he is under obligation to God to obey.

At our southern border, little girls are permitted to die because of the cruelty of the way this government enforces our immigration laws. He has slandered and driven out of office honorable and extremely brave F.B.I. agents and some of the most loyal and disciplined leaders of our Armed Forces. He has outraged and essentially cashiered a U.S. Marine General and Defense Secretary who rationality in a dangerous world is a template to anything called policy. He has destroyed our alliances and economic relationships around the world. He glibly plays games with the needs of the people in his ceaseless threats to shut down our government.

I am sorry to say it, but I am beginning to think that it is time to think about the impeachment of Donald J. Trump. I know this is controversial, but the behavior of this White House is not merely controversial. It is chaotic, irrational and in every sense that matters wholesale treason to the American people. As Thomas Jefferson once said, “I tremble for my country when I remember that God is just.” These are words our country needs to heed.

David A. Lee,
