Truth is the system failed and we got Trump

The American political system has flaws that are repairable, and that includes some Constitutional amendments concerning the Electoral College, and how the Vice President is determined, for instances.

At issue today is to address what had nothing to do with the "system." The immediate problem is President Trump has violated the emolument statute of the U.S. Constitution. He has conflicts of interest and is hiding them every way that he can by not releasing his IRS filings. That may not matter because the FBI and Treasury Departments can conduct their investigations without cooperation.

However, there is a reason to believe that the FBI Director, James Comey, is not objective in this investigation and may be a subject of inquiry himself.  Furthermore, the newly appointed U.S. Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, is already conflicted and must recuse himself as he sponsored the appointment of one of the subjects of the investigation.

When the Executive Branch becomes so corrupted, that requires independent inspection. It requires Congress to engage to do their part. However, Congressional leaders in the House of Representatives and Senate are also subject charges of dereliction and obstruction of justice.

That leaves legal representatives of We the People and members of the minority Democratic Party to appeal the case or cases to the Court. That is where the immigration ban went and was twice struck down.

The big fish in the subject is Donald Trump, an errant President who willfully attacks the free press and anyone who gets in his way with malicious lies. He is feckless and reckless.  His personal behavior is indicative of someone who not only lacks sound judgment but who is delusional and may be of unsound mind.

President Trump is the mistaken produce of a minority of Americans and the Electoral College. As much, the Trump mistake is a product of the Republican Party that failed to perform its duty to help voters vet the candidate and to ensure superior qualifications.

I have provided a baseline for this in my book, How to Select an American President by James A. George and James A. Rodger (c) 2017 Archway Publishing. It is at Amazon now in soft cover and e-book. It is 480 pages of well-researched guidance for voters.
