Warren leads again: proposes legislation so presidents can be indicted

As she has on so many issues, Elizabeth Warren is demonstrating leadership in proposing comprehensive legislation that would, among other things, allow a sitting president to be indicted.

snip
"she would pursue new legislation to strip the current protections and, on the administration side, pledged to appoint Justice Department officials who will reverse flawed policies so no President is shielded from criminal accountability.'"

On Wallace's show just now they gave Warren credit for speaking plainly on an issue that many Americans didn't realize was in practicality under DOJ guidelines the case, that a President is above the law.

One of our political parties is a criminal enterprise

The repub party is that on so many levels from Congress to the WH. They serve corporate America not its people, they either cooperated with a hostile foreign power or covered up that cooperation, they have obstructed justice, allowed public corruption by the president or participated in it themselves, are currently trying to destroy our separation of powers enshrined in the Constitution, and I can go on and on, and others can add more.

It's not hyperbole to call the repubs criminals. They have violated numerous laws and are working to save their crime boss through any means possible, including destroying our democracy. That's a criminal organization.
