  1. Idiot(s). “Nuff said”.

  2. When a president violates federal criminal statutes that were passed by congress and signed into law by previous presidents, he cannot be heard to say he is exempt from those laws when those laws allow for no presidential exceptions.

    Article II, has two relevant provisions the issue at hand:

    The first,

    “Section 1. The executive power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.”

    The second,

    “Before he enter on the execution of his office, he shall take the following oath or affirmation:
    –“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    Keep the above in mind, Trump must “faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

    I submit Dowd is correct: As “chief law enforcement officer under [the Constitution’s Article II, Trump] has every right to express his view of any case,” but if the Trump expresses that view in manner designed to intentionally interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation which interference constitutes obstruction of justice in violation of Federal Criminal statutes, he may be indicted and prosecuted for that conduct in accordance with law.

    When Trump intentionally interferes with an ongoing criminal investigation which interference constitutes obstruction of justice in violation of the Federal Criminal statutes, he violates his sworn to constitutional obligation to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and to the best of his ability, to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and as a result he may be indicted and prosecuted for that conduct in accordance with law.

    When Trump intentionally interferes with an ongoing criminal investigation which interference constitutes obstruction of justice in violation of the Federal Criminal statutes, he violates his sworn to constitutional obligation to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and to the best of his ability, to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, and as a result he should be impeached forthwith.
