Predictable, Trump-hating Luckovich not worth a look

I can save the AJC a fair amount of money. Fire Mike Luckovich and just have one message in that space: “I hate Donald Trump.” It would obviously provide the same message printed daily. The AJC insults a large portion of its readership with this nonsense. Despite a two-year investigation and $30 million in taxpayer money proving there was no Russian collusion, Luckovich continues to obsess over the Russian collusion delusion. I turn the page in order to not read his insipid cartoons. But even a quick glance always shows a negative depiction of Trump. The scribbles from this no-talent hack aren’t worth the paper on which they are printed.

Conservative columnist offers wrong take on Mueller report

In Pat Buchanan”s column, “Impeachment divide makes Dems’ credibility an issue” (Opinion, April 26), he writes, “On obstruction, then, not guilty by reason of no indictment.” Either Buchanan has not read Mueller’s “Report On the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election,” or he has decided to mislead readers. Mueller explains “no indictment” on the first page of Volume 2: “This Office (of the Special Counsel) accepted OLC’s legal conclusion (that) ‘the indictment or criminal prosecution of a sitting president would impermissibly undermine the capacity of the executive branch to perform its constitutionally assigned functions.’” Ironically, Buchanan’s credibility is an issue when he so clearly misrepresents the report’s basic principles and findings. Mueller is fairer to the president than Buchanan is to the reader.
