      It's amazing - I don't hate Trump as much as the Jim brothers - to one, that makes me a bad Christian, and to the other, it makes me a Trump Supporter.

        By the way, the thread title is an outright lie.

          Heav... um, Utopia for Chuck would be an Orwellian/Kakotopian horror with him in the role of "Big Nanny" and where anyone who agreed him were "more equal" than those who didn't.

            I would say it is a bit more complicated than that:

            The 20-page filing stylized as Donald Trump v. Cyrus Vance, et al. controversially argues that a sitting president absolutely cannot be arrested, imprisoned, detained, “investigated, indicted, or otherwise subjected to the criminal process,” while in office.

            Essentially, it’s an assertion that the president is above the law. And Trump clearly wants to test this theory before the Supreme Court.
            Tor Ekeland is a criminal defense attorney who represents clients in the federal system. In comments to Law&Crime, he dismissed Trump’s argument as antithetical to how the American is intended to work.

            “It’s a foundational principle of our Republic that no one is above the law,” Ekeland said. “When the Founders fought the Revolution they were rejecting the type of monarchical thinking involved in the worship of an untouchable President.”
            He [Ekeland] also offered the following counterfactual argument in favor of subjecting a sitting president to criminal law:

            If the President were to rape, and then murder, a citizen on national television by shooting them in the head on 5th Ave in broad daylight, does the Constitution dictate that nothing can be done to the President with the possible exception of Impeachment? And if so, can the President rape and murder until impeachment proceedings wind their way through Congress?

                Nothing in what you posted deals with the content of my post. And where did I say my attempt was to prove the title true? Seems you missed the point. Try again.

                  You NannyMommied my post, claimed it was more complicated than that, posted NOTHING of substance to show my statement was not true....

                  The title is a lie - Unless, of course, you can produce a cite or video where Trump actually says "I am above the law", or something similar.

                    Normally chuck would be reported for derailing the thread, but it's Jimmy's thread, so it is up to him whether he wants to report it or not. But nearly every post since chuck entered should be moved to the padded room

                    Cut it out chuck.

                        I did not say that your statement was not true. Nor did I claim I wanted to prove the title of the thread true. All I said was that it was more complicated than you indicated. I gave you an example of how a criminal defense attorney described and reasoned on the topic. I allowed you to see his line of reasoning. Without even dealing with any of that you claim there is "NOTHING of substance". If you have some reasons for claiming so feel free to share them.

                              But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
                              Than a fool in the eyes of God
