    I think that no President should not be above the law, be it with 'executive privilege' against Congressional subpoenas or being indicted by law enforcement. A president should be treated like any other citizen, and neither executive privilege nor freedom from indictment are mentioned in the Constitution. I do wish our government would stop making stuff up on the hoof.

    If the President has private attorneys with offices in the White House, do they pay rent to the Treasury?

    Yet conservatives did and to this day continue to rail on about it. Will they care now?

    The administration despite their claims otherwise, continue to make this whole thing look dishonest as hell.

    "Above the law" is a convienent catch phrase if its someone other than Hilary or investigating the investigators even if there is overwhelming evidence showing quite the contrary.

    Because they are not going to hand out anything to the D's. If not even the Mueller report placated them after two years of "Mueller is coming", nothing will. No need to provide material. If I were in the WH I would suggest to do the same, and not provide anything at all.

    Post 3 - you're losing your touch in bringing up Obama. ;)

    Do you think the EP should apply here? I can't even fathom how EP is relevant.

    You could always work on getting the voter participation rate into the 90 percent range-- and swamp those ineligible voters at the polls. But, no, that would take actual work!

    Hillary has never been President, and my point clearly applied to all Presidents.

    I believe it applies to ALL people in government, not just the President.

    Didn't people accuse Obama of governing by executive order? This is not the president's job...
