Intel Drop: Court Decision Revokes Trump’s Immunity from Arrest in Some, perhaps Many Circumstances

The New York judge also rejected the notion that a sitting president can't be indicted.


By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

The court decision below overturns the Nixon era justice department opinion, never confirmed by the Supreme Court, that a sitting president could not be indicted.

The short introduction, including the link to the full decision, bases the claim on a number of obvious issues.

A president could be involved in crimes with others and cover for them.

Presidents are not Kings, they are both president and a private person, and this is from the founding fathers.

There are restrictions to arresting a president but not prohibitions and of the cases involved, many before Trump took office, no immunity is possible and arrest could happen at any time.

On others…issues arise here as to procedures and possible protections.  Best read it yourself rather than depend on pundits.

  1. A quote from the translation of Legge, in the I-Ching hexagram for which Trumps day is represented. Legge didn’t do a great job, but he did catch several points which prove out, as Wyatt Earp born on the same day exemplifies. Thung Zan.
    “But the union must be free from all selfish motives, and this is indicated by its being in the remote districts of the country, where people are unsophisticated, and free from the depraving effects incident to large societies. A union from such motives will cope with the greatest difficulties; and yet a word of caution is added.”
    He is not free from selfish motives and it sticks out like a thumb. Demise is imminent. Onward.

  2. Obviously why Agent Orange’s hero is the brutal dictator who told SCOTUS “Let’s see you enFORCE the law and stop me”, then committed the ethnic cleansing, deadliest US terror event.

    Sadly, the dictator was right: SCOTUS couldn’t enFORCE the law, Congress (save Davey Crockett) didn’t even try, and the US Army was… Just following orders.

    But we honor that dictator on the $20, and Don Cheeto sees himself so honored, one day.

  3. Can you imagine a “country” where a “memo filed in the DOJ” stops the prosecution of open criminality and a conspiracy of espionage dead in its tracks even when it has captured an entire governmental branch? IMHO, America has lost its sovereignty long ago and is but a colonial asset. Aaron Burr wouldn’t have suffered this BS.

    • Yikes, I have to disclaim the Aaron Burr reference above was made in appreciation of the truths about Burr and not an insinuation of my own violent intent or suggestion to others to take a violent path against anyone. That said, if I had the chance to shoot Alexander Hamilton in the stomach — I would.

  4. One thing you can count on with the fundies is how stupid they are!

    Yes crime in rural areas is rampant with the opioids and meth as added to the religion their brains are addled.

    What a mess….

  5. Mr. Duff,

    Pastor Jefferies of Dallas first Baptist is calling for open rebellion over Trump if impeached as I believe millions of them will follow this nonsense!

    Where are the FBI and the Marshals to put a stop to this?


    • you know, I remember joining the Marine Corps some 51 years ago, went through training with lots of religious southern boys along with messikans and black folks….and bad attitude city kids like myself

      and when it came down to killing motherfuckers, the southern boys weren’t so much.

      don’t expect much more now as well unless it requires dealing meth or robbing old ladies. which is what small town/rural america is up to nowadays

      people watch too much tv

    • The southern boys weren’t too shabby at killing in the 1860s. I realise that was a very long time ago and things have changed a very great deal.

      But is it really so hard to find sociopaths and psychopaths that can be riled up enough to set them off on the path of violence?

      There are plenty of examples of violent unrest being stimulated, Ulster for example, where the IRA was no more than a couple of dozen malcontents in East Belfast. Then the Brits shot a few peace protesters in Derry and the IRA was swamped with volunteers overnight.

      I personally doubt there will be violence if Trump is impeached, but I also recognise that there are well-established and much practiced techniques for causing violence and the people behind Trump are most certainly not above using any and all dirty tricks.

  6. The US is now under violent occupation by a criminal oligarchy. Perhaps Trump’s civil war is due. I can give you an idea who will die first…say goodbye to the 1% and the criminal oligarchs. Maybe Trump’s long desired civil war will bring Americans together and restore Jefferson’s dream over the bodies of those who think their control of the press makes them safe.
    Toying with violence can backfire, more than that, I can assure Trump and gang, it will come to bite them in their huge fucking asses.

    • “I can give you an idea who will die first…say goodbye to the 1% and the criminal oligarchs.” – GD

      I hope you are correct in this if a civil war does happen – maybe they will leave people who do not live in fully detached homes and do not drive luxury cars alone?

  7. Repugnant. And he is inciting his base to civil warmongering and other dangerous rhetoric in support of this.
    He isn’t crossing it, he is chopping what was left of the line into little pieces with a dull ax.
    The intention from the start.

  8. Wow no there is as suprise! Looking deeper into government lifetime appointments as well there is the contigency of acting on good behavior. I am sure the court is aware of that.
    I like beer too, but not when it includes assualt.
