Trump is saying 'I am above the law' and 'nobody can control me': Harvard Law's Laurence Tribe

Published 1 min ago

By Sarah K. Burris

Harvard Law professor Laurence Tribe explained that it has become obvious that President Donald Trump is using the Office of the Presidency for his own purposes.

Speaking to MSNBC host Ari Melber on his impeachment special, Tribe explained that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused to authorize an impeachment inquiry until it became clear that Trump was using his office for political purposes.

“He was taking hundreds of millions of dollars voted by Congress and withholding them from the Ukraine in an act of sheer extortion and soliciting what amounted to a bribe because he wanted Ukraine’s help, help against Joe Biden for 2020 and help in clearing him of colluding with Russia in 2016,” Tribe said.

Ironically, Trump made that notorious July 25 call just as Robert Mueller had finished testifying before Congress about his investigation into the last time Trump asked a foreign power to help him during an election.

1. And unfortunately, Trump is probably right.

Unless the Senate removes him, everything he's doing is approved as fine and dandy by our governmental system and no one can stop him.

2. I refuse to believe that no one would find their conscience--even if he is not removed.

It is easy to state otherwise and for some here to accuse those who hold out hope of some justice of being "naive'" or "Pollyanna-like" or "unrealistic"...

But, for me, whether he is removed or this impeachment simply wakes up another small percentage of the populace, he will face some consequences. And after he is gone, there WILL be a reckoning.

3. he is above the law even if he kills someone in broad daylight

only senate has the power to remove him after house impeaches. He is not afraid of anything and, in fact, dares to be impeached, not terrified like media portrays. He knows he owns senate GOP through russian kompromat and they will never convict him.
