With the coronavirus taking center stage in our lives, I hope people don’t forget the criminal actions and misery we were put through by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer and Reps. Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler, who have crawled out from under their rocks to deceive and rob the taxpayer once again.

For some reason, our president and many Republicans are under the impression that politicians can lie, fabricate evidence, obstruct justice and interfere in investigations with impunity. But under the U.S. Code, even politicians are not above the law — and the aforementioned ones have clearly violated chapter 47 of the code. Mr. Schiff, for example, forged the declassified transcript of President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian president, changing it before reading it to Congress. His co-conspirators colluded, saying they had evidence against Mr. Trump in the Russia investigation.

These politicians have violated their oaths of office and should not be allowed to proceed in making bills and laws that affect our lives. I, for one, want to know why these miscreants aren’t being charged and jailed for their crimes.
