Noble rats

If you have a Wall Street Journal subscription, don’t miss this week’s Peggy Noonan “Declarations.”:

Trump supporters will not believe the testimony of unnamed people with unknown motives. They will believe only the testimony of serious people who are obviously patriots.

Turnover has been high in this administration. Many have been fired or resigned. They should tell us what they know.

Those who did that would certainly become a target of the president’s operatives. They might for a time become figures of obloquy. They’d be called rats.

But if you do see this president as ultimately dangerous, you have a responsibility to say it.

We need some noble rats.

May they come forward, speak softly, and make their motives clear.
