Men or Laws?

jared.jpg“I know Jared. He’s a great guy, decent guy,” Kelly told NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet The Press.”

I know from watching “horse operas,” that after committing a crime, the bad guys go back to the hideout to “lay low.” Why then would Jared Kushner be advised to “lay low.” If he has done nothing wrong, shouldn’t he explain and defend himself. If he has acted badly, the honorable course would be to resign. Or is it that President Trump’s son-in-law is above the law? If John Kelly is right that Kushner can have done no wrong because he is a “great guy, a decent guy,” we have a government of men rather than laws.

One wonders:

  • Must the President comply with the Emoluments clauses of the Constitution?
  • Does America have a foreign policy which doesn’t change with the latest tweet?
  • Can the President and his family profit from their government offices?
  • Is a Presidential Administration rife with nepotism acceptable?
  • Can the Attorney General renege on a promise of recusal?
  • Can the President dismiss an FBI director then nominate a political crony to fill the job?

Stay tuned; most likely there is more scandal to come.

    My worry is that this all seems to be coming to its inevitable conclusion to soon. We need to be much closer to the mid terms before this wreck leaves the track.
