Response to Berube letter
M.L. Berg, Minot
In a letter published recently in your paper, Mr. Gary Berube, claimed that “there was fraud and corruption in the 2020 election (As you know there was)”.
If by ‘you’ he means the reading public, then I disagree.
From the start of the campaign until the vote of the Electoral College, the Trump campaign claimed voting machines had been rigged to favor Biden.
In December, 2020, Mr. Eric Coomer, Director of Product Strategy and Security, for Dominion Voting Systems, the voting machines in question, sued the Trump campaign for these claims.
And on Friday, January 8, 2021, Mr. Coomer filed a lawsuit for $1.3 billion against Ms. Susan Powell, Trump’s campaign attorney, claiming Ms. Powell had orchestrated these claims, which were “demonstrably false”.
I expect Mr. Coomer to win both lawsuits “going away,” as the expression is.
If Mr. Berube thought voting machines were rigged, he should look into what Mr. Coomer has to say, and he should follow the course of these two lawsuits.
By doing so, perhaps the evidence will change his mind.
I think it’s becoming clear just what the outgoing president’s motto has been from the start.
One of John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s most famous sayings is, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country!”
Trump turned that on its head, so that he lived by the motto “Ask not what you can do for your country, but what your country can do for you!”
I still prefer Kennedy’s motto, myself.
