Is the POTUS above our law?

Postby Cate McCalley » Tue Dec 12, 2017 11:33 am

Until recently, the position almost all in the Trump Administration have taken with respect to the allegations of the POTUS sexual misconduct and abuse, is that the POTUS is indeed above our law.

Recently, Spokesperson Hope Hicks Sanders clarified the POTUS position against the sexual misconduct. She stated the POTUS was elected with the public knowledgeable of sexual misconduct allegations against him. As such the Trump and his Administration deem the matter settled.

This position, in spite no less than 10 women have publicly came forward with their stories of sexual misconduct and assault, since the POTUS 2016 election.

Nikki Haley, a woman Trump appointed to a highly visible and important U.S. Ambassadorship believes these women have the same right to be heard, as any woman alleging sexual abuse.

Haley has defied Republican Party politics of silence, speaking up to support our Rule of Law over Political Party. This is what one does when the value of their morals are more important than political ambitions.

What they don’t do is take the position that hundreds of millions of women should be silenced by a minority of voters that view the election of a POTUS in the same way they see marriage vows.

The marriage ceremony ask those present to speak up if there are objections to the matrimonial union about to take place, or forever remain silent.

There is no place in government for elected or appointed positions, that sexually harass and abuse members of the opposite or same sex. No place at all. The public elects government officials, it doesn’t marry them.

Those in government have an obligation to serve the public’s best interest. It is not in the best interest of our nation’s women or men to tolerate sexual misconduct and abuse of anyone.

During the very public divorce from Donald J. Trump, his first wife said that he had raped her. Year’s later, she recanted the accusation. Sharing responsibility for her children’s future, it’s not difficult to imagine why the Trump’s wife would recant her accusation. It’s one thing to tell the truth about injury when the wound is fresh. Another once it becomes a scar. Scars are reminders of injuries those carrying them hope to forget.

President Trump’s past and present is full of public and private injury to others. His sexual misconduct and abuse has scarred many women. These women have a right to be heard by a Congressional Committee, and the findings thereof made public.

No man is above our laws designed to protect American citizens. Not even the POTUS.

Isn't it strange that one of the most recent worked for the Clinton Foundation. Look at all the accusations against then governor Clinton. Was he above the law?

One of the most recent what? Victims of Trump’s sexual misconduct? One of the most recent elected or appointed Republicans of Congress or the Trump Administration to condemn sexual misconduct and abuse?

The only thing strange is Republican Trey Gowdy claiming ‘sexual misconduct and abuse’ of a sitting President is a ‘police matter’, not a matter to be investigated by Congress. Now that is schockingly strange. Considering the Congressional investigations of President Clinton’s sexual misconduct that led to a House Impeachment.

Obviously President Clinton was found not to be above the law. Neither is Trump.

It's funny how all these women are coming out of the woodwork 20/30 years later after someone runs for office.

Roy Moore’s defeat in a deeply red southern State was a clear defeat for Trump & camp. A direct hit on the heart of it. Particularly the hypocritical Evangelical faction like Kentucky’s Republican Legislator, Dan Johnson, that killed himself recently.

After viewing documented evidence of more than a year of investigative journalism, culminating in more than 100 witnesses to his immoral character and his use of his alternative ‘church’ to foment a political following, Johnson knew his game was finished.

The investigation exposing things like the ATF getting wind his church was serving beer, and him claiming it was part of the church’s sacrament, he knew could not be defended by the ‘T- totaling’ evangelical Right. The lies and misrepresentations of the Alt Right are now their ‘chickens coming home to roost’.

Ironically the same social media tools the Alt Right used to seat charlatans like Dan Johnson into decision making government positions, is exposing their hypocrisy.

It’s one thing for a hypocritical evangelical of a small community to get himself elected to a State Legislature, another for an Alt Right media source like Breitbart, to employ homosexual Senior Editor Milo Yannokovich, whom excuses Pedophilia in saying some children initiate sexual relationships with adults. Using his own past sexual relationship with a Catholic Priest when he was 14 years old as an example.

In so much as Trump himself is a sexual predator, and the sexual improprities of the Right that have for decades claimed the moral high ground, now finds that ground shifting dramatically beneath them.

Whether it’s 30 days after a charlatan’s sexual abuse is exposed or 30 years after, the good from exposing the immorality of these sexual predators comes from both the moderate Right and Left finding new common ground for consensus on what matters most. Protecting the most vulnerable (children, women and others), from sexual abuse.
