    This idiot is so damn corrupt, he thinks he is judge and jury.

    President Donald Trump just appointed himself America's judge and jury, casting even deeper doubts on whether the nation's impartial justice system can withstand his expanding political assault.

    "I'm actually, I guess, the chief law enforcement officer of the country," Trump said Tuesday, after setting off alarm bells with a flurry of pardons and commutations.
    Though the President is the head of the executive branch, America's real chief law enforcement official is William Barr and there are dramatic signs that even the loyal attorney general is beginning to feel the strain of the last week's legal tumult.
    CNN's Kaitlan Collins reported Tuesday night that Barr had considered resigning over Trump's interference in his department, including the President's tweets that he said last week made it impossible for him to do his job. The story was first reported by the Washington Post.

    The President's relish in unveiling a new set of clemency decisions in highly sensitive political cases -- days after his meddling in the Roger Stone sentencing recommendations -- is only exacerbating a Justice Department credibility crisis. That is especially the case since his presidency has unfolded in a whirl of scandal, legal showdowns and questionable constitutional power grabs that are hardly conducive to good governance and respect for the impartiality of the Justice Department.

    I'm curious, would it make you feel better if I disavowed Trump?

    Well, not feeling bad or good, I can't see how anything you do will change the way I feel.

    I’m not up to par on this story. You will forgive me if I were to fined a source other than CNN’s Kaitlan Collins though. She might be just a we bit too partial for my liking..... All this fun stuff going on and my office is just so darned busy that I can’t seem to get away from work to get caught up on current events..... Darned old prosperity sure is a monkey your back, isn’t it?
