President Trump consistently demonstrates that he has no respect for his office, no respect for the law, and no self-control among other things. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) summed it up factually this morning on Meet the Press backed by his legal credentials.
Trump is not a lawyer, and by my book, How to Select an American President by James A. George with James A. Rodger (c) 2017, that is a deficiency. The reason is that the job of President is all about laws and regulations, creating them, maintaining, retiring and replacing. As important, the President is responsible for managing the operational environment that is enacted by Congressionally created laws and regulations.
Trump is unsuited for managing the federal government enterprise, and his temperament and mental state are unfit for the job.
Making false statements (18 U.S.C. § 1001) is the common name for the United States federal crime laid out in Section 1001 of Title 18 of the United States Code. The law prohibits knowingly and willfully making false or fraudulent statements or concealing information, in "any matter within the jurisdiction" of the federal government of the United States, even by mere denial.
President Trump has committed this type of crime repeatedly and needs to be impeached because his misbehavior is incessant. Interestingly, he was expelled from school in his lifetime for bad behavior. It is an inherent characteristic.
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday raised questions about President Trump's claims that former President Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower before the election.
In an interview on NBC's "Meet The Press," Schumer said Obama has "flatly denied that he has done this."
"And either way, Chuck, the president's in trouble. If he falsely spread this kind of misinformation, that is so wrong," Schumer said.
"It's beneath the dignity of the presidency. It is something that really hurts people's view of government."
Schumer said if this is the case, it shows the president doesn't know how to "conduct himself."
"On the other hand, if it's true, it's even worse for the president," Schumer said.
"Because that means that a federal judge, independently elected, has found probable cause that the president, or people on his staff, have probable cause to have broken the law or to have interacted with a foreign agent."
Schumer called that possibility "serious stuff.""
