Response to Bernardo de La Paz (Reply #10)

12. That is poppy cock.

He is using his "integrity" to duck his responsibility.

You are using the republican's argument. Their attack is that he spent all those months and money with the full power of the office to investigate the president's actions. If he can't say that the president broke the law, then, according the trump's lawyers, there was no law broken. In the real world, if a prosecutor does not bring charges, you are legally innocent. No crime.

Now the rub is that he can use the excuse that he couldn't bring charges because he was not, under conventions that the DoJ sometimes uses, allowed to charge the president. That does not mean that he didn't commit the crimes. If the lead prosecutor can't say that he committed crimes, then by the rules, trump is innocent.

(The idea of not bringing charges against a sitting president is a DoJ opinion - not a "formal written regulation".

Right now there is not one person who is in a better position to end the trump befoulment of our country. He may wish he were not in that position, but his is. A truly brave man would damn the petty pretensions of the bureaucrats and save the country.
