Response to Atticus (Original post)

19. The one thing that may end up being positive about this nightmare is the fact that the POTUS

 

has too much power, that the founders wrote the rules assuming we would never have a leech occupy the sit of the presidency. The fact that he can go around the rules and assign "acting" positions to curtail the confirmation process poses real problems.

The lack of checks and balances on a daily basis presents more problems, and many of it should have been learned during the Nixon impeachment process, but then again, regardless of what Nixon did, at the end we do have to accept that he loved his country more than himself, which is not the case with the leech we have in the White House.

The fact that he has been able to appoint his children into advisory positions and circumvent the process to provide them with security clearances needs to be fixed. trump has shown us that the presidency can be easily abused and that very few recourse is available to the Congress besides impeachment.

You are correct, if a subpoena is not answered then the full weight of the law must fall on the criminal, and the White House, the president should not have a say on whether a person answers, or not, to a subpoena. A subpoena must be answered, it must be treated with the reverence that it deserves, and if not punishment must follow.

I could go on...the point is that this should be a waking moment for the country, the president must be reigned in, and I don't mean the leech, the leech must be impeached and taken out, I mean the position of the presidency. It must be disallowed for a president to conduct private conversations with a foreign leader and not provide transcripts of it, to not have people in the room witnessing the conversation. trump discussing matters of the country with Putin in close doors and destroying the transcripts is a crime and misdemeanor, it should not be allowed. How many secrets did he tell Putin? It is treason, nothing else.
