We are a Republic Sir, Not an Absolute Monarchy

The President and his devout counsel must think we are a Banana Republic. Despite his, and the zealots in his party, best efforts to facilitate this development, we are fortunately not there yet.

It was revealed today in the New York Times that some of the Presidents lawyers (including those no longer serving him) argued that obstruction of justice charges against the President cannot be pursued because, as head of the Executive Branch, he has the power to supervise investigations.

This is the zenith of chutzpah because if the President had such power, former Presidents Nixon and Clinton would have had their Justice Departments strangle the Watergate, and Whitewater Investigations in their infancies.

We are a Republic Mr. President, not an Absolute Monarchy or a Banana Republic. Being a Republic, you are not above the law and your people have to wonder if you are so innocent, why are you acting so guilty and making pronouncements and gestures that show culpability.

Sooner or Later the truth will come out. It always does. Just ask those who served Presidents Nixon and Clinton. It is inevitable.
