The President is the head of the Justice Department.
no, the attorney general is.
No sir. You need a civics lesson.
please provide a link to a source saying it is normal for a president to order the AG to lower the sentences for his friends.
?? Lol. Can you be more dishonest? I can give you a link showing that the President is the Chief law enforcement officer in the country and is the boss of the AG.
And once again, the president did not order the AG to lower the sentences for his friends. Please stop lying.
trump is ordering investigations of his enemies and the lowering of sentences for his criminal friends.
Another lie. Thank God the Senate was not suffering from TDS.
lol so a matter of days after trump arranges his trial to be fixed and he gets off the hook,
Now its "arranges" and not "orders"? Trump expressed his opinion. He did not arrange or order anything.
He is publicly announcing he wants to interfere in the justice department.
It isn't "interference" HB. Your calling it so doesn't make it so. And why would Trump "publicly" announce interference?
the president telling his AG to go after his enemies and reduce sentences on his friends..
The President did not tell his AG to go after his enemies and reduce sentences on his friends. You are only alleging that. Surely you can tell the difference between what the President does and what you suspect he did?
your question was why didn't trump make these orders in private.
You declined to answer. And we saw the tweet. It was not an order. It was not even addressed to the AG. Stop lying.
I am quite certain he has done that too.
But your "certainty" is not proof or evidence of a crime. This is what you guys suffering from TDS don't get.
Trump is announcing his corruption in public because he knows his base doesn't care.
But the country is not composed only of his base. And this is your suspicion you're treating as if its fact. It isn't.
You are seeing him live tweeting abuse of office and you are defending it.
No, I am seeing you accuse him of that stupidity. I have seen no evidence of abuse of office. Just as I saw no evidence to convict Judge Kavenaugh, I saw no evidence of Russian collusion, I saw no evidence for impeachment.
All I see is you changing your comments to, "that is what Trump is doing..." And being equivocal about what "that" refers to. Did you not say this...
It was an example of the kind of corruption that could occur if the president was allowed to meddle in the justice department. He hasn't gone quite that far (which would be extremely illegal).
To what does the bolded "that" in your comment refer? Honesty will not harm you HB.
everyone is supposed to be below the law. that is the point.
No one is below or above the law slick. We are all innocent till proven guilty.
Everyone must obey it.
And there must be proof of someone breaking the law before we convict, not just TDS fueled suspicion.
If the president has the authority to order the justice department to do what he wants on specific cases, he is above the law.
You are being dishonest again. No one is arguing that the president has the authority to order the justice department to do what he wants on specific cases, and that is NOT what has happened. Why are you lying?
The President expressing his opinion in a tweet is not "meddling", the tweet was not an "order" to Barr, or "arranging" cases. Those are simply your allegations.
IF he orders them not to charge his friends then...
If. Then we will deal with it when it happens, not accuse and convict him of it because it's possible. That's tyranny.
The system you seem to want is to make trump king.
No. I want the same system we had before TDS, where a person is innocent until proven guilty.
