The rule of law is one for which not knowing is without excuse.
What might be redeeming about Donald Trump is the lesson that he is rendering for all citizens to witness. It is about the rule of law.
No one is above the law. In fact, not even nation states can escape the larger idea. Governments might attempt to manipulate the rule of law, yet the standards will catch them every time.
Presently, efforts have been made by the Trump Administration to violate the law. Stopped by the Courts, he still appeals to the legislature to pass laws that will undermine the intent of the US Consitution. The legitimacy of this President and government is in challenge pending the outcome of the Special Prosecutor and other independent investigations.
