An open letter to Rep. Ilhan Omar

Dear Representative Omar:

Please accept my congratulations upon your election to the US House of Representatives. I wish you the greatest success and offer whatever help I can provide.

As your constituent, I ask for your thoughts.

Recently, Rep. Nancy Pelosi suggested that the newly-empowered Democratic majority in the House has a duty to “find common ground” with the Republicans in Congress who have supported what many believe to be an unprecedentedly corrupt administration.

Please respond to those of us who believe that it is not possible to find common ground with those who have fostered the amorality of Trumpism.

  • Do you support Rep. Pelosi’s bid to serve as Speaker of the House? Or do you support a different candidate for Speaker? If so, who do you support?
  • Do you believe (as I clearly do!) that the role of newly-empowered Democrats is to ensure the Mueller investigation is protected so it can come to its own full and fair conclusions? Do you believe that if the Mueller investigation produces credible proof of impeachable behavior that the House should commence impeachment hearings against the President?

On another matter, do you believe that there is sufficient evidence of Brett Kavanaugh lying to Congress that an investigation should begin to determine whether he should be impeached?

Rep. Omar, a traditional politician would respond to this message with generalities designed to avoid answering the simple questions I have posed. I hope your response will be extraordinary: I hope that you respond to these straightforward questions with straightforward responses.

Thank you very much.

Robert Sykora
