Letter to the editor: Russian allegations still unproven
While Mr. Lynn’s comments regarding the threat to the Affordable Care Act in the Jan. 16, 2017, editorial “How Trump will hurt you” are timely, his further comments on the supposed involvement of Russia in the recent election detract from the value of his offering. I share the concern, however to make the assertion that this alleged collaboration between the Trump campaign and Russia actually has occurred only deepens the quagmire.
We have yet to be presented any hard evidence of this event, only allegations based on hearsay. No matter from how high in our government these allegations come, the confidence we can place in our government, media and politicians continues to plummet as we learn every day of the complex web of deception which has detracted from the credibility of reportage, policy and diplomacy.
I urge Mr. Lynn to refrain from joining the chorus of unsubstantiated allegations in this matter, no matter how heartfelt our concerns, and uphold the integrity of journalism we must rely on as we struggle to discern the truths of these matters.
