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.

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.
