I am sick and outraged over the murder of journalist and American permanent resident Jamal Khashoggi. The President and his administration have failed to uphold their duty to the Constitution and to the rule of law by turning a blind-eye to this demonic act.
Greed and power can never be allowed to conspire to extinguish a human life. The murder of Jamal Khashoggi is a vicious attack on the press, on free speech, and basic human rights.
It's hard not to see parallels to the Civil Rights Movement when reporters were threatened, beaten, & attacked for attempting to shine a light on injustices perpetrated in the Deep South. The administration’s weak & feeble response demonstrates whose side they really fight for.
I continue to be grateful for the brave reporters and members of the press who face unspeakable threats and their work to ensure no acts of evil may be swept under the rug and hidden from the light of justice.
