Rep. Larsen sides with socialists by seeking to impeach Trump

It doesn’t surprise me that Rick Larsen joined the squad of socialists along with Reps. Pramila Jayapal and Adam Smith (“Democratic U.S. Rep. Larsen: Time to impeach President Trump,” The Herald, July 19). While everyone has the right to their opinion, siding with four members of Congress who hate our country, clearly are anti-Semitic and hate Israel will not stand with this veteran.

I served in two wars to defend all citizen’s rights to express their views. Veterans served their country to defend against the socialism of Soviet Russia, China and North Korea. I find it disgusting that members of Congress from our great state openly support avowed socialists. There are tens of thousands of veterans in the 2nd Congressional District.

I don’t know who will run against Rick Larsen in 2020 but I bet that they won’t be a socialist like him. He supported Hilary Clinton, who could not even qualify for a security clearance. It is time for Rick Larsen to go!
