Obama administration leadership was responsible for the costly use of false information to investigate Donald Trump and his staff for supposed collusion with Russia, in a robust attempt to prevent Trump from being elected (and later, to remove him from office). The Democrat-led House used unprecedented tactics to impeach President Trump without factual evidence. Fortunately the Senate voted against the impeachment.

But Democrats continue fishing-expedition hearings in an attempt to find anything they could use against Trump. Legislative activity for constituents is ignored. Not only have millions of dollars been wasted, but valuable legislative time, too.

The Democrats’ response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been equally despicable. Rather than work with Mr. Trump, they have been absorbed in their own power-grab agenda. After many Pelosi-led delays to provide aid, the Democrats are determined to shift aid funds to illegals and others for whom the money was not intended. Democratic state governors are actually limiting religious-service attendance and reasonable small-business reopenings, and trying to limit free speech. It is time for Democratic voters in those states to change their party allegiance and vote to restore their personal rights to pray, work and speak.
