Country above party

To the editor:

On Monday we witnessed an act of our President that has never happened before in our nation's entire history. On that day we saw our President publicly commit an act of treason.

Soon after that David Holden, a candidate running for our Congressional seat, issued a statement condemning Donald Trump and his public remarks. Our current Representative, Francis Rooney, has been totally silent. One candidate is standing up for America, and the other places party loyalty ahead of our nation.

The legal definition of the word "treason," found in Webster's Dictionary states, "The offense of attempting to overthrow the government of one's country, or assisting its enemies in war, specifically the act of levying war against the United Sates, or adhering to, or giving aid and comfort to its enemies by one who owes it allegiance." Any person that commits one of the specific acts listed has committed an act of treason.

All of our intelligence agencies, the FBI, the Justice Department, and intelligence committees in both The House and Senate chaired by Republicans, and numerous intelligence agencies of our allies have all determined that Russia did interfere in our 2016 election, Trump says the Russian investigation is a waste of time, and instead he believed Vladimir Putin's denial. When it was time to take a stand for our nation, instead Donald Trump provided aid and comfort to our enemy.

In our upcoming election I'm voting for David Holden, the individual that challenges that act, and takes a public stance in favor of our nation, not the incumbent that is totally silent on the issue.
