Take time to read the transcript

If American citizens and voters are going to be subjected by extreme, partisan Democrats to the water torture and divisiveness of impeachment hearings based upon interpretations, so-called "parodies" and outright lies, the least that we can do is read the actual transcript of the short conversation between Ukraine President Zelensky and U.S. President Trump (which the Daily Herald has published in print and online).

It will take a person less than eight minutes to read, then you decide for yourself if a general election for the presidency of the United States should be nullified by what was said in those six to eight minutes as Nancy Pelosi, Bill Foster, Sean Casten, Lauren Underwood, Raja Krishnamoorthi, and others propose. Truly the "do-nothing" Impeachment Congress.

These are the same powerful elected officials who have concentrated their congressional majority and efforts for the past year on political posturing and obstructing the president, rather than attending to legislative solutions to health care coverage, comprehensive immigration reform, international trade agreements, border security, national infrastructure and sustaining improvements in our economy and employment.

After you've read the transcript, please watch Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff's shameful description of what he pretends was actually said. What he concocted is a false and flimsy excuse to submerge our country into a sewer of destructive conduct and impeachment rhetoric.

We are only a short 13 months from the next presidential general election. Let the voters of America decide, rather than a group of frustrated, angry and effete politicians.

I thank this publication for demonstrating its respect for the intelligence of its readers by having already published the Trump-Zelensky conversation transcript. Please go online and read for yourself.

Chris Lauzen, Kane County Board Chairman and former Illinois State Senator
