Editor,

How can these conservative presidential supporters who profess to support the Constitution and law and order defend a president who disregards the Constitution and the political rules of our country? President Trump continues to break the rules of our nation even now. He believes as president that he is above the law and abuses the executive privilege rules. His constant demand that foreign nations find dirt on his political opponent is totally illegal. His supporters can only support this unruly president with lies, false theories and slander. In doing so, these people are spreading propaganda and participating in a political coverup.

Raymond - at first I was thinking that you were referring to the Democratic "leadership" regarding the violation of our Constitution. But then I am am wondering whether you can provide any substance to your allegation that our President has violated the articles of our Constitution? You must have learned from Goebbels (the Third Reich propaganda minister) that if you tell a lie often enough people will accept it for truth. He made a phone call for Pete's sake. if that is a violation of our Constitution, every president since Washington (If he had a phone) would have been guilty. This whole process is preposterous and you know it!

There has been no indictment because of a longstanding Department of Justice policy prevents a sitting president from being charged with a federal crime. 







The 1973 memo, “Amenability of the President, Vice President, and other Civil Officers to Federal Criminal Prosecution while in Office”







Then the 2000 memo, “A Sitting President’s Amenability to Indictment and Criminal Prosecution.” 



Which reaffirmed the matter regarding indicting a sitting President.

Raymond- if president Trump is guilty of something, why has he not been indicted. I think you may be scared to face him in an election and need to try to remove him before that time. Go Trump, KAG. His supporters are firmly behind him and will make sure he is reelected in 2020. If that upsets you too bad.

Kurdish blood is now on the President's hands.

Chris: Do you really think there are enough gullible, easily fooled and uninformed people to re-"elect" someone as inept, incompetent and unqualified as Trump, - or do you trust the usual Republican voter suppression and other tricks, including foreign meddling, to do the job again, as in 2016? You may be right, but for the sake of the country, and the rest of the world, I sure hope you are wrong!
