No President, no United States Administration is above the Rule of Law. The President of the United States regularly referred to the fact that he was a constitutional lawyer during both of his political campaigns. He was quite fond of references to the fact that he taught constitutional law. What is clear is that either this President was absent from his own classes when he addressed the First Amendment’s Freedoms of Press, Association, Speech and the Free Exercise of Religion, or he simply has no respect for them.
I write as a private citizen, a constitutional lawyer and a deeply concerned American. I love this Nation. I still believe in its promise of liberty. Like most of you I have been watching the unfolding scandals which are engulfing this Administration with growing alarm.
Like most of you, I insist upon knowing what really happened on that fateful evening in Benghazi, Libya – and what really happened afterward. People died and someone lied. The only question is who lied and when. No-one is happy to make such an assertion. I certainly am not.
