May 11 Letter to Senator Johnny Isakson

Dear Senator Isakson:

Today you introduced a bill that would protect whistleblowers in the VA.

In releasing news of the bill you emphasized your belief that it would help “create a culture of accountability.” 

You also noted that “our veterans suffer [when] the people responsible for caring for them are putting themselves first – not our veterans.”

Your assertions are undeniably true.

But remember too that the people suffer when their government—the people responsible for caring for them; the people charged with—

establishing Justice, insuring domestic Tranquility, providing for the common defence, promoting the general Welfare, and securing the Blessings of Liberty to the people and their Posterity

—put themselves first, and not the people.

Senator, as you well know, Edmund Burke once noted:

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”

We ask that you support an independent investigation into the executive branch’s dealings with Russia and into the facts underlying John Comey’s termination as Director of the FBI.

I am respectfully yours,

your constituent.


Senator Johnny Isakson
