Letter: The funny thing about the truth ...

Posted

To the editor:

I am writing in response to the letter in the May 16 edition to The Times by Mr. Rottman (“Mueller Report: Curious game they are playing”).

First of all, the Mueller investigation was conducted under false pretenses. Then a team of rabid Trump-hating/Clinton-loving lawyers spent two years and a zillion dollars harassing and intimating people with the full weight of the U.S. Government trying to find evidence of this so called “collusion” and apparently found none.  

All the real “collusion” really took place by the H. Clinton machine aided by the corrupt Trump-hating FBI. The same H. Clinton who was cleared (so far?) of wrongdoing by the corrupt Trump-hating FBI although it was quite evident (i.e., true) she used a personal non-classified computer to conduct classified government business.  

The liberal left, aided by the liberal media, have a problem with truth.  They figure if they repeat a lie long enough it will become the truth and if you deny the truth long enough, it will no longer be true. 

Funny thing about the truth: Even if everybody believes something doesn’t make it true and even if no one believes something, it still can be true.
