Letter: In the U.S., nobody is above the law

Indivisible North Coast Oregon re Whitaker appointment

Published on November 15, 2018 8:09AM

Congratulations to Clatsop County voters. Once again we led the way in Oregon voter turnout. We are part of a movement of millions defending democracy.

Therefore, we are especially concerned that President Donald Trump has acted unconstitutionally by appointing an acting attorney general. The U.S. Constitution requires that the president nominate to the Senate for confirmation those who would fill offices that report directly to the president.

We are also deeply concerned that his appointee, Matthew Whitaker, has previously and publicly criticized the Robert Mueller investigation, and suggested ways to undermine it. The investigation must be protected. In the U.S., nobody is above the law.

We urge readers to contact their members of Congress and tell them to protect our Constitution. More information is at
