Many lawyers run the government, and that is as it should be in a system of the rule of law. Donald Trump is not a person who has an affinity with laws and regulations, and that is why he is hell-bent to take them down. As evidenced by his actions before and after his election, he doesn't respect the US Constitution that he is sworn to protect.
Why is it taking so long to mount the charges and take him to trial?
It is because laws and regulations and due process must be observed as a requirement in the process. It is also because Republican legislators are impeding the process and obstructing justice.
That is how this analyst sees it.
The fact that Trump is aggressively eliminating anyone who is attempting to complete an investigation into his Emolument Clause Violations, Misprision of Fraud Violations, Lying as a Federal Employee and levying erroneous charges against the former President, is more evidence that he is conflicted.
He is unfit and illegitimate. That case and the investigation must be accelerated because democracy in America is being damaged by this regime that extends to some members of Congress who are complicit with him.
"Before Comey's firing, Trump's animus toward the FBI director boiled over into fury, according to more than 30 officials' accounts
President Trump, who had long questioned FBI Director James B. Comey’s loyalty and judgment, was infuriated by what he viewed as the director’s lack of action in recent weeks on leaks from within the federal government and his focus on the Russia investigation. By last weekend, he had made up his mind: Comey had to go.
Private accounts of more than 30 officials, senior Republicans and confidants of President Trump paint a narrative centered on the president’s brewing personal animus toward Comey."
