I have been watching the news for 30 minutes and I am f*cking exhausted!
Nowadays when you hear that people think about the newspapers…..but I am talking about something different.
For over a year there has been opposition to Trump as president…..many think he colluded, some think that he has committed a Constitutional violation of the emoluments clause…..others think that he is practicing despotism and even a load of nepotism…..and a few think that he should be arrested and tried as a criminal for his actions before, during and after his candidacy…..then not to slight his supporters there are those who would give him oral sex to keep him in power (Nunes, Jordan come to mind) and about 35% of the population think his doing good things for the country (I am not one of them).
I think he has committed treason by colluding with the Russians (you remember them those bad guys from the movies just a decade ago) This man, Trump, does nothing that does not benefit him or his business….the country matters not to this d/bag.
Let’s say that all this investigation stuff finds the president guilty of something (you pick whatever crime pops your griddle)…can Trump be arrested and jailed?
Let’s look at the crimes through the prism of the Federalist Papers. Paper number 69 written by Alexander Hamilton……..
The President of the United States would be liable to be impeached, tried, and, upon conviction of treason, bribery, or other high crimes or misdemeanors, removed from office; and would afterwards be liable to prosecution and punishment in the ordinary course of law. The person of the king of Great Britain is sacred and inviolable; there is no constitutional tribunal to which he is amenable; no punishment to which he can be subjected without involving the crisis of a national revolution. In this delicate and important circumstance of personal responsibility,
So according to Federalist 69 sets forth the direction this would take…..the president cannot be jailed until he leaves office…..but read the whole paper…..
So if we live by the rule of law (which I am not positive that Trump would do) we have no choice but to wait until he is no longer in office before he can be put behind bars, if that is the consensus of the ruling.
