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?   
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

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.

Schlapp repeatedly pressed Cuomo to “name the crime” that would be listed on the articles of impeachment for President Donald Trump. “There’s no need for a crime,” Cuomo responded.

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.
Yearning to stay free takes place in many ways at many different times, whether by withstanding planes or bayonets

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-
