The Rule of Law
Friends, I strongly recommend to you this article by Carl Cannon about the recent raid on President Trump's personal lawyer. Cannon is right -- we have arrived at a place where the rule of law and our constitutional/democratic order is under threat. The law itself is being weaponized and twisted in the effort to destroy a duly-elected U.S. President. Ultimate responsibility for this fiasco rests with liberals, who are adding fuel to the fire on a daily basis, but some responsibility must also reside with Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein, who hired the attack dog Mueller in the first place. We should probably take seriously the possibility, however, that Mueller is trying to bait Trump into firing him, or Sessions, or Rosenstein, or otherwise to overreact in such a way as to bring about his own downfall. Our response should therefore be measured and carefully considered. Nonetheless, I think we need to confront the likelihood that Mueller will, by whatever artifice, create a pretext for impeachment. Hopefully, a Republican Congress will see that pretext for what it is: a coup in disguise. The best way to ensure that outcome, moreover, is to keep the House in Republican hands. That must be priority one.
