Former Supreme Court justice: Trump ‘exercising powers that do not really belong to him’

Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens said he is concerned President Trump is crossing a line in refusing to comply with House subpoenas.

“I think there are things we should be concerned about, there’s no doubt about that,” the 99-year-old told the Wall Street Journal.

“The president is exercising powers that do not really belong to him. I mean, he has to comply with subpoenas and things like that,” he said.

??? Where was this 'opinion' when Holder was subpoenaed and didn't comply?   
Romans 12:16-21
Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceable with all.  Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.  No, if your enemies are hungry, feed them, if they are thirsty, give them something to drink...Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

There isn't a single principled person on the left, it doesn't matter what their title is or was.

They are all team politics, all the time, on every single issue.

I think they are all spawn from hell, frankly.

Since he was part of a group that stepped outside its own jurisdiction, it is a pot calling the kettle black.

He has no honor and should be given no respect.

You mean,unlike YOUR choice for President,who would be who,the Tooth Fairy?

Instead of whining about Trump all the time,why not suggest someone you perceive to be "better"?

This coming from a man who spent an entire career using the Judiciary Branch to write laws.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

-Dwight Eisenhower-
