Under our great American system, everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. This is just as true of Donald Trump as it is of, say, Hillary Clinton, or O. J. Simpson.
Yet as the writer of the article below makes clear journalists have a special obligation to investigate the credibility of allegations made against political candidates. Your Musical Patriot does not like to traffic in most matters of a personal nature. In this case, though, the author makes such a strong case for investigation that I will go along. Now, will the mainstream media follow suit? They should and must. For the sake of the country.
Note: Donald Trump has denied the allegations.
