Yeah, she "broken" the law alright.......Conservatives don't seem to understand the Constitution and the seperation of powers.  That would be another wayof looking at it.

I have seen nothing in the Constitution and/or the separation of powers that prevents a President from wanting.

 

Now that may be another "wayof" looking at it but it certainly does not make our President a "gascist".

He's a liar - 6000 plus lies since the famed ignoreguration - and counting...

 

Many of his "wants" have been declared unconstitutional.

Why do you repeat something that has been proven bot true. The FBI looked at what she did and told us she did noting wrong and the JD filed no case. The law was enforced as she did nothing wrong. Now the real law breaker is Trump who like all Dictators wanted to send his opponents to jail on fake charges and that is why we see him supporting the SA Crown Prince. Trump the law breaker along with his enablers who support his law breaking even when people die.

Ya know, there's a LOT of truth to that.

 

This is how a facist acts....retribution towards his critics.  Or, as what some say, a Banana Republic.  It is truly pathetic to see a few seeing this behavior as "acceptable".

Thank You Centrist for pointing out how important the separation of powers is to our democracy. Let's also remember that only U.S. Attorneys, NOT presidents, have the power to file criminal charges.

 

If you're not a member of the Trump Cult, this is obviously another example of a man who thinks the U.S. is a Banana Republic where the dictator in charge can lock up his political opponents.

He was warned by his  former attorney McGhan, that if he tried to prosecute Clinton and Comey he could be impeached. Just another example here of how out of reality Trump is and that he thinks he can use his own Dept. of Justice to go after his adversaries or anything else he wants. WRONG!! This is another brilliant example of a huge potential of obstruction of justice if this would have happened, and you had better believe Mueller has heard about this story as he got Trump's written answers to his questions in his Russian Probe. This is pretty unprecendented...

What you see here is a dictator in action. Make no mistake about that. If you look at everything he has done like stealing children, using the military for political purposes, Taking control of JD, SC, Travel ban based on ones faith, building internment camps, green lighting SA to go after people they consider enemies, looking to allowing a green card holder living in the USA for over 20 years to be taken back to Turkey for trial and death to stop Turkey from going after SA, Taking money from SA. This is a dictator. He is doing just what Hitler did in Germany during the 1930.  This becomes clearer every day.

Oh darn.  Why did McGhan warn him?  We could have gotten rid of him a lot sooner
