Letter to Editor

A response to the op-ed written by Dr. Constantina Michalos

Dear Editor:

This letter is in response to the op-ed written by Dr. Constantina Michalos which was published in the November 16th edition of The National Herald.

It is surprising, if not disturbing, to see that many people do not adequately understand, nor appreciate, the exceptional system of justice, including evidentiary principles created and existing because of our Constitution, which serves to protect us all. The reason the Republicans are vehemently objecting to this unorthodox inquiry is that no court of law in America would permit most of the testimony due to its violation of evidentiary rules, especially under the hearsay doctrine. It is, in fact, the Republicans that are defending our Constitution in their demand for due process.

As to President Trump (respectfully in caps), he has been working tirelessly and successfully improving the economy, illegal immigration, trade relations, and countless other issues benefitting most citizens. He is, therefore, faithfully executing the office of the President despite meritless and unprecedented partisan accusations and investigations since the day he took office.

Furthermore, a proper understanding of our Constitution reveals that no actions taken by President Trump amount to impeachable offenses which would result in removal from office. Our Founding Fathers clearly intended that this drastic remedy only be used in a bi-partisan fashion to remove a sitting president for the highest of crimes. So yes, Dr. Michalos, it is the Constitution.

Respectfully submitted,

Leah P. Pappas, Esq.

Astoria, NY
