Letter: Independent panel should investigate unfit president

From: Thomas Talbert


Per the news media, Trump’s frustration came to a head last week with the firing of FBI Director James Comey, who was overseeing the probe into the possible campaign ties to Russia’s election meddling. During his campaign, Trump insisted that Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the assassination of JFK and that President Barack Obama was not born in the USA. He has quoted numerous lies and never retracted them; now the extremely non-professional firing of director Comey on the pretext of poor performance.

The public deserves a nonpartisan, independent commission to investigate Trump and his administration’s foreign entanglements, business conflicts of interest and violations of federal ethics laws.

Trump is suffering from a serious mental disturbance beyond his being a malignant narcissist. His unpredictability, instability and irrational behavior reflect that of the insane. His performance to date indicates he is unfit to serve as president.
