Letter to the editor: Finally, Donald Trump indicted

The Repository

Regarding the March 30 online article, ''Ohio members of Congress, U.S. Senate candidates react to Trump indictment,'' and March 31 print article, ''Trump indicted: 1st ex-president charged, expected to surrender to NY authorities next week,'' I am very grateful that the former President Donald John Trump was finally indicted and might finally be held responsible for some of the things he's done and could potentially face real jail time.

While some conservative Republicans are feigning indignation at the charges, they should be relieved to know that no one is above the law. After all, if you support the law, and law enforcement, then you must support the Capitol Police who defended America's Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, from a dangerous mob, where some members testified that they incited an insurrection against America at the former president's request.

I think it would be best to give this former president less attention and focus on supporting people and candidates who advocate for civil rights for all, from the LGBTQ+ community and Drag Queen story hours, to immigrant and minority rights, to reproductive rights for pregnant people, and to save lives, pass an assault weapons ban.

In the meantime, I am very proud to support our current Democratic President Joe Biden and VP Kamala Harris, who won the 2020 election and have policies and plans in place to help all Americans regardless of party.
