OPINION: The Justice Department must indict Donald Trump

The United States Constitution is the binding contract that keeps this country from turning into a dictatorship,  a theocracy, or an authoritarian government. This document protects the rights and freedoms of Americans as well as the checks and balances of our leaders whom we freely elect. If those who violate the law remain unaccountable, then that can set a dangerous precedent for our Democracy. We must continue to demand that Trump is held accountable and that he will be indicted and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

If we are a country of law and order, then we must show that no one is above the law.

Merrick Garland, I understand your concern about politics being used to influence an investigation of future candidates, but rest assured that there is undeniable evidence of Trump’s crimes — from incitement to intimidation to witness tampering.

I am afraid that the longer the Department of Justice delays the proceedings, the larger the likelihood that Trump could possibly get away with his crimes. If he does, he could be the next President of the United States and appoint the people to positions to keep him from being held accountable.

Trump attacked our Democracy when he started the big election lie, and he continues to spread it to this day. He incited an insurrection, an attempted coup that got Americans killed because of his incitement.

Other countries like France and Israel have indicted their leaders, so there is no excuse that Trump can’t be indicted. We must show the world that Trump is not above the law.

What kind of message will it send to the world, to our allies and enemies, if Trump walks free? Our Constitution will mean nothing if he is not held accountable for his crimes, and our Democracy will cease to exist.
