Is There No Law Against…

Published November 28, 2020 by Nan Mykel

A president recklessly sacrificing the lives of his citizens for nefarious reasons? Or making up conspiracy theories against democracy? Might there be a law against starting a war in order to hurt the incumbent (and America?) Or assassinating citizens or non-citizens abroad? If not, there ought to be. [I confess to wondering how Epstein died in prison].

Our AG thinks presidential powers should not be limited. Do we think that efforts by elected officials to blatantly attack our democratic underpinnings is okay? WHAT BALLS! I can imagine a future during which our ineptitude to set limits on our leaders’ retaliations or threats against subserviant appointees is blameworthy and cowardly, if not dangerous. We also need to put in writing the protocol of when it’s permitted to appoint new Supreme Court occupants, with nothing left to assumptions of fair play.

And would it be too much to ask for a mandatory vetting of presidential candidates? –Perhaps also while in office or running for office? What’s good for the goose is…

  • Nan, what frustrates me most is Congress not doing its job of oversight on the Executive Branch. The outgoing president has fired, removed, forced out, transferred numerous Inspectors General, staff, diplomats, and lately Chris Krebs, the cybersecurity election expert for DHS for doing their jobs and telling the truth, at knowing great risk.

    My Senator has said in writing to me, that the outgoing president has the right to fire anyone. That maybe true, but he has the obligation to look into those firings. People who tell the truth get fired by a person who would not know the truth if he tripped over it. And, nobody cares in the Senate? Keith

    • Could Congress just be husbanding its energy, after having so little impact? You said, “he GOP had to jump on the re-open the economy bandwagon and damn the mask as a tactic…” You probably didn’t really mean “had to.” I’d like to think that if I were a senator I would be willing to trade my future as a Senator for America.
