Can you indict a sitting President?
So earlier today there were two high-profile cases in Federal Court involving the president's campaign chairman as well as his personal lawyer, and the title question has been asked by many. There's no settled law, tho at present the Justice Dept seems to be shy and say that he can't... but I think there is, or should be an important exception that is in play here, .....here's why, in a musical response...
very quick iPhone recording of a one-take live acoustic recording, done late at night...
The question of the day is ‘Can you indict a sitting President?’
To answer this properly, let’s review some recent events
The president’s attorney testified under oath, making this connection
That his client directed him to pay off women to quote ‘influence the election’
This is a campaign finance violation, and a Federal crime
And it was done a month before the election, an interesting time
Had they disclosed the payments, as the law requires, the truth would have been revealed
And that whole election landscape would have been a very different field
So in order to gain the presidency, and the right to not be indicted while there
He directed his attorney to violate campaign laws to cover up two affairs
Should we give someone immunity, which was obtained using criminal behavior
Oh please, Robert Mueller, stand up and say ‘no’, and be our country’s savior
Put this argument another way, another way this can be discussed
To reap the rewards of one’s criminal acts, seems to be rather unjust
Do we let a person, murder their parents and then say ‘have pity on an orphan child
The answer here, seems to be clear, let’s not let justice be defiled
