A leaked letter just revealed Trump thinks he’s above the law. Chuck Schumer’s response is epic

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) saw today’s bombshell leak of the letter sent by President Trump’s attorneys to Special Counsel Robert Mueller asserting unprecedented executive privilege in regards to his being questioned in the probe into foreign interference in the 2016 election and the president’s potential obstruction of justice in that inquiry. 

Senator Schumer immediately took to Twitter to give his own take on the claims made by the president’s lawyers.

Senator Schumer’s sense of the dictatorial impulses behind the Trump legal team’s assertions is a fear shared by millions of Americans who want Mueller to complete his investigation unimpeded and have the President simply sit down and answer the questions proffered to him truthfully.

The question of the president’s appearance of innocence of the charges being investigated is being constantly undermined by his attempts at evading questioning, as his very candidacy should have been by his failure to divulge his income tax returns.

If he’s not guilty of anything, then his behavior should be less like a mafia chieftain trying to evade prosecution and more like a cooperative and helpful witness.

Senator Schumer is correct. It’s fortunate that no one is above the law in this country, no matter how much they try to claim to be. If Trump succeeds in changing that paradigm, we will have fallen inexorably into the authoritarian dictatorship of our nightmares.
