Letter: What if it were Obama?

As I watch the unfolding of the impeachment inquiry concerning President Donald Trump and surrounding events, it is clear that two of Utah’s congressional delegation, Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Chris Stewart, are among the president’s most ardent defenders and critics of the process.

I can’t help but wonder how different their behavior would be if absolutely every detail were exactly the same except that the president in question was a Democrat, perhaps Barack Obama.

I believe that Lee would be apoplectic with rage and Stewart would be filled with righteous indignation to the point that his head might explode.
