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.
