Patriotic Americans disagree on many things. But one thing almost all of us can agree on is that we are nation of laws and that no man or woman is above the law.
And in our system of government, the supreme law that stands above all else is our founding charter, the Constitution of the United States.
No president in our history has openly taken the position that he stands above and need not comply with the requirements of our law, especially the supreme law enshrined in our Constitution.
Since the moment he took the Oath of Office and swore to uphold our Constitution, President Trump has been in direct and willful violation of these clauses.
