susan: Has there been a single day since Donald Trump joined the election process that he has not told a lie then denied that he told a lie even though many of those lies were revealed often by Trump's own words on tape? I don't think so. Now he has told an outrageous lie when he characterized his invitation to Russia to pursue his opponent's private e-mails through illegal activity and use them to influence our presidential election. He defended his incredibly dangerous statement as appropriate at a press conference after he made it and it was clear that he was serious. Now that there has been a nationwide outcry from members of his own party as well as Democrats with many people who have actually worked in national security positions indicating that this statement alone disqualifies him from the position of president of the United States, he has lied and insisted that he was joking. Some have suggested that he withdraw from the race. Many have suggested that he has committed treason. What we do know is that nothing that comes out of his mouth can be trusted. I hope that the people who have decided to vote for him question that decision in view of Trump's clear indications that he has more respect for Putin, a vicious dictator with a history of imprisoning or killing his opponents, than Hillary Clinton, a woman who has served the people of this nation since she was in high school, often on a non-paid basis.
