Opinion: Congress's responsibility to implement inquiry to uncover the truth, says Canton resident

President Trump has consistently and purposefully ignored the fact, confirmed by his own justice department, of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

He swore that, if elected president, he would divest himself of companies that could benefit from his office, and now he wants to have the G-7 meeting in 2020 at Mar-a-Lago, which will contribute millions of dollars to his coffers.

He insisted that he would make public his tax returns once the audit was completed on them, but there was no audit, and he has never released them.

It may be that an impeachment inquiry would exonerate him of these manifestations of dishonesty and ethical violations, but it is the congress's responsibility to implement the inquiry to uncover the truth.
