LETTER: 'An accusation without proof must be false'

TO THE EDITOR: It is so obvious to me that Trump lied about the election being stolen from him. He kept saying the election was fraudulent as soon as the election was over and on Jan. 6, he came up with around 50 claims of voter fraud to support his accusation. But, and this is most important, he has never proved these claims. Not only has he not proved them, but he hasn’t brought them to the courts.
