As we all await with great anticipation the Mueller announcement on Monday we need to remain aware of other developments that are of great concern. The systematic process of deregulation occurring throughout our governmental institutions threatens our basic democratic protections. Whether the potential takeover by Sinclair Group of nearly 75% of our local television outlets, or the demise of consumer and voting protections, we are facing a frightening infringement on our basic liberties. We can hope that the announcement tomorrow is the first step in a process that will see the end of this administration, but we must be responsible to protect ourselves, our children and grandchildren from the efforts at the “deconstruction of our administrative state” so proudly declared by Bannon.
