Letter: Trump’s collusion with Russia
April 16, 2018 was a day of overwhelming excitement for our nation’s Democrats and especially, the reporters of the New York Times and Washington Post who received the coveted Pulitzer Prize for national reporting.
In announcing the winners, prize administrator Dana Canedy noted that the winning stories illustrated the necessity of a free press even as Donald Trump regularly inveighs against “fake news.” The Pulitzer board said, “For deeply sourced, relentlessly reported coverage in the public interest that dramatically furthered the nation’s understanding of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and its connection to the Trump campaign, the President-elect’s transition team and his eventual administration.”
The New York Times, on their website of April 16, 2018 briefly describing their own award as “the national reporting prize went to The Times and The Washington Post for their coverage of Mr. Trump’s possible ties to Russia — a recognition of two journalism stalwarts that exposed the hidden activities of the Trump White House while withstanding much presidential ire.”
The Pulitzer board, the Times and the Post will shrug their shoulders and say “who cares if some say Trump’s innocent,” we’ll move beyond our groundbreaking disclosure of his collusion with the Russians. The Democratic Party along with the national and local press have the next two years to begin their relentless task to uncover, with the help of additional deep sources, Trump’s criminal activity in obstructing justice.
