Donald Trump… Above The Law!

“When the President does it, that means it’s not illegal.” Richard Nixon

The New York Times has obtained a 20-page memo from the then Trump lawyers to Special Counsel Robert Mueller, indicating Trump “could not possibly” have committed Obstruction of Justice because he has unfettered authority over all federal investigations. His lawyers, Jay Sekulow and former attorney John Dowd, also asserted his ability to use Presidential pardon powers, even saying he has the power to “terminate the inquiry.” They also disputed the authority of the Special Counsel to subpoena records and to compel Trump to testify. In other words, the laws that apply to every other American, do not apply to Donald Trump. He has made the legal assertion that he is above the law!

Many of the points raised in the memo have already been decided by the Supreme Court. The United States v. Nixon decided a President can be compelled to turn over records. Clinton v. Jones showed a President can be forced to testify. Trump’s constant golf trips to Mar-a-Lago, show he’s just not that damn busy. The memo also verifies that Donald Trump himself dictated the famous Air Force One press release, lying about the Trump Tower meeting including Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump, Jr.

This President has acted as if he were above the law his entire term. He failed to divest himself of business interests, flaunting his conflict of interest by his constant use of Trump properties to conduct government business. He has ignored ethics laws, security clearances, and many long-standing protocols. His Cabinet reflects the ethics of the man himself as they feed at the public trough. It’s time Trump learns that he too is governed by the law, he may even need an introduction to our penal system.

Trump’s memo suggests that no other witness can testify to the President’s intent when considering whether or not he obstructed justice. All the reason to drag him to court and question him under oath. Of course, there’s no reason to believe he won’t commit perjury? That’s another law he should become acquainted with. All the steps Trump’s legal team are taking seem to be in anticipation of Impeachment. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy!

  1. No one is above the law… I like this a lot:…”This President has acted as if he were above the law his entire term.

  2. You have nailed it, as usual, William. The Republicans have enabled this train-wreck of an administration, only at last feebly protesting at the recent tariffs that could lead to trade wars. So strange that they are silent while children are separated from their parents, or while schools and churches are attacked by gunmen. Oh, I know why! It’s the money — for Republicans, it’s always about the money. So very, very sad.

  3. Excellent piece!

    Father God, please execute YOUR PERFECT JUSTICE on earth as it is in heaven to denonstrate to the world the phrase “JUSTICE for ALL”. ALL have been suffering under “white [man’s] justice”, which is INJUSTICE. In Yeshua’s Name. Amen. Thank You in advance.

  4. Above the law?? Donald thinks he is a god. Donald has started a new religion. His fans are people of faith. They believe the unbelievable with no proof and follow him, what ever he does. They listen to his tweeted sermons and believe him. He holds rallies so that his fans can worship him. They too believe he is God, and they do worship him. He gains strength from their worship. Sadly, Evangelical Christian leaders have jumped on his bandwagon. Apparently, it doesn’t matter what religion they support as long as they rake in the cash, perks or power that they crave.

    Since 85% of Republican voters have joined the Church of Donald, they will vote to support Donald’s dogma. Republican lawmakers are afraid of the new god and the new religion. Fanatics can’t be swayed by logic, empathy or goodness. However, his acolytes (lawyers) can throw out new dogma for the faithful.

    Republican leaders are afraid that they will be voted out if they are shown to be heretics to the Church of Donald. Apparently job security is more important to them then the integrity of the United States.

  5. It’s apparent that our US Constitution no longer carries any weight. Every day draws our country closer to an insurrection between those for, and those against this president. He’s never been to a place where the American people can assemble and voice displeasure…always a rally like AH did in his Third Reich days. He’s never allowed the people to question him in any type forum, just from behind a podium in front of a pool of reporters and usually with a foreign head of state close by. My prayer is that whatever he’s hiding comes to light and he pays dearly for destroying the USA.
