Re: “Far more evidence of Clinton’s criminality than Trump’s,” by Art Tozzi, March 25:

The GOP and the Democratic Party seem to feel “holier than thou” should be replaced with “less corrupt than thou.”

Equivalencies of wrongdoings and other evils are not license to repeat the same act or a mirror image of the crime. It is not OK.

Letter-writer Art Tozzi and others use past practices of the Democratic National Committee to justify the evils committed by the sitting chief executive. It is not excusable.

I do not condone the actions of the DNC, Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Schultz triumvirate of corruption. They deserved all the trouble they got as a result.

But that in no way justifies the overwhelming amount of corruption, malfeasance, ineptitude and totally un-American actions taken by the Trump fascist regime. Disregarding and disrespecting everything that made — past tense — America the envy of the world.

Might is not right. Might should be for right.

The two-party system has failed the American people. The only citizens they care about are the corporate citizens.

They call it pragmatism. I call it capitulation.

Capitulation to Corporate America equals fascism by textbook definition.
