My TWENTY-FIRST Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

It's me, again. Your constituent who also writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

Yesterday, the Washington Post reported that Donald Trump and his advisors have been privately discussing replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions - possibly as a part of a plan to stop Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia and any possible links it had to Trump's presidential campaign.

Given that you've already publicly declared that you have "every confidence" in Mueller's "integrity and professionalism", is this OK with you?

Is it OK with you that Donald J. Trump, as elected leader of the country and (more importantly, it seems) leader of your party, has chosen a route so disrespectful of the rule of law? If he gets away with it would the phrase "rule of law" have any meaning anymore?

I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.

"rule of law" lost its meaning with Qualified Immunity.
But Toomey is Blue Tongue who like Sessions and supports less Law Enforcement transparency and accountability.
They also support Law Enforcement being allowed to take the property of people not convicted of any crime under civil forfeiture.
