LETTER: Truth will come out; it’s the American way

Truth, justice, and the American way. Remember that phrase from the old Superman series? We have fallen far from those days, but there are positive trends evident. Alex Jones of InfoWars, probably one of -- if not the most -- despicable person in America was just fined nearly a $1 billion in a lawsuit judgment for lying about the Sandy Hook massacre.

His efforts to convince his followers for years that the children killed were fake and inspiring his followers to harass the grieving parents -- even to the point of desecrating the graves of the children -- resulted in this record-breaking penalty.

And then we come to the Jan. 6 committee, which has worked for months to investigate the insurrection that day. Some may say the panel did not answer enough questions about why the Capitol wasn’t better defended, but members did collect extensive information under oath about what happened and what had led to the insurrection.  The Department of Justice has indicted over 800 of the insurrectionists, convicting many to date. Trials for some of the group leaders are currently in progress, with some facing penalties for seditious conspiracy of up to 20 years. 

Over 30 members of the previous administration who were actively involved in the effort to overturn the 2020 election pleaded the 5th Amendment when questioned under oath. Many of them will face indictment in the next round of trials.  Most importantly, the investigation has led to one person above all others responsible for the insurrection – former president Donald J. Trump.

The truth will come out, and justice will follow. After all, it is the American way.
