Seattle Times Editorial Board Calls Out Dave Reichert for Staying Silent on Trump Charges, Attacks on Democracy

Seattle Times Editorial Board Calls Out Dave Reichert for Staying Silent on Trump Charges, Attacks on Democracy

In a new editorial, the Seattle Times Editorial Board is questioning why GOP candidate for governor Dave Reichert is staying completely silent about Donald Trump’s indictments, and urges him to make his views known to the people of Washington, writing:

“He must say what he thinks about the serious charges facing Trump. That includes allegations of trying to overturn the 2020 elections, hiding classified documents and paying hush money to a porn star.”

This is just the latest sign that the GOP primary will be a bumpy road filled with nonstop MAGA loyalty tests – or as the editorial notes, Dave Reichert will “not be able to avoid this conversation forever.”

Editorial: Does Reichert have the courage of his convictions to counter Trump?

  • “If former U.S. Rep. Dave Reichert has views about former President Donald Trump’s legal predicaments, now would be a good time to share them.”
  • “He must say what he thinks about the serious charges facing Trump. That includes allegations of trying to overturn the 2020 elections, hiding classified documents and paying hush money to a porn star.”
  • “It is very hard to be staunchly against low-level street crime but silent on charges that relate to the foundations of our democracy. And changing the topic to Biden’s son won’t cut it.”
  • “With Trump’s trial dates tentatively scheduled during the run-up to the 2024 election, Reichert will not be able to avoid this conversation forever.”
