    King Trump stretches his new legs

    So, after firing vindman and Sondland, the president has decided to openly abuse his power and enlist the supposedly neutral DOJ and Barr to get a criminal off. He has inserted himself directly into the Justice system WRT the sentancing of Roger Stone. To the point ALL FOUR PROSECUTOR RESIGNED from the case.

    https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/12/polit...one/index.html

    And I was just chastised in another thread for daring to think Trump is exacting revenge on those FBI agents who may have been a bit to eager to find out if Trump's shady connections and shady hires presented a danger to our national security.

    And yet, here he is, openly, brazenly inserting himself into the sentencing phase of a criminal trial on behalf of his (blatently criminal) 'friend' Roger Stone. To the point the prosecutors resigned in protest - ALL of them.
    He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me."

    I appreciate both your completely calm and unbiased summary of this event, and the incredibly fair and balanced source you cited.

    The silver lining of this new state of TDS is no more 'Drumpf is going down!!!!!!'. Finally.
    . Bloomberg, by comparison, may be the candidate that most of the Founders hoped would arise: a wealthy patrician, much like them, who would use his vast resources and influence to defeat what he views as disruptive elements in the nation’s political system.

    That would have been for the Judge to decide, not POTUS.

    At least, that is how the Framers of the constitution and the Founding fathers designed our government and justice system.


    POTUS inserting himself into the system with his new found boldness is called 'abuse of power' and is the sort of thing that created the recognition there needed to be the capacity to impeach/remove a rogue president.

    There is no silver lining to the unknown level of power that the president now enjoys. However, I do hope he does not, is not able to, take it to the point people like you would actually begin to push back, because that threshold is so far over the cliff there would be no capacity to recover. We would be his royal subjects by that point.

    That is why I'm call him King Trump now. That is what you want. A king, someone that can trample all over anyone that would oppose him. Someone that can't be stopped from doing what you think you want done he wants.

    But that is NOT how the government of the US is designed to work. And that is EVERYTHING the founding fathers were trying to avoid.

    King Trump? Really, Jim?

    Have you ever seen a king removed from office by means of a democratic election? Is there such a mechanism for an actual king?

    And it is still for a Judge to decide. I mean really Jim 7-9 years for lying, which at his age could be a death sentence. Do you really think that is just Jim - honestly?
