I was surprised and disturbed by the editorial “. . . and Clinton’s trust deficit” [Aug. 2]. It stated, “Our view is that she should acknowledge her mistakes and apologize.”

Hillary Clinton has not only apologized and acknowledged her mistake, but she said she is sorry for using her private email server. When confronted with tapes where FBI director James Comey is asked questions about her veracity, she pointed out that she was interviewed for many hours, and he stated that she never lied to the FBI.

If you wonder about why she has a trust issue, all you have to do is look at the constant bombardment by the media on that issue, including Newsday saying that she has not apologized or owned up to a mistake. Clinton has apologized and has conceded it was a mistake.
