I had read about this, but hadn’t heard hardly anything in the news until today.
Some women are bringing lawsuits against Trump for sexual assault, plus there are other pending lawsuits for other reasons. See “The Many Scandals of Donald Trump: A Cheat Sheet” at theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/01/donald-trump-scandals/474726/
The interesting thing I read today is that the same rule created to bring Bill Clinton to court for the same type of behavior may also bring Trump to court. See “The Clinton Accuser Who Could Bring Down Trump” at msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/the-clinton-accuser-who-could-bring-down-trump/ar-BByWE1E?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp
From this latter article: “…Jones v. Clinton,*went all the way to the Supreme Court, which held in a unanimous decision in 1997 that executive privilege did not protect a sitting president from lawsuits filed against him for private conduct.”
So my question is if that applied to Bill Clinton and supposedly Bush and Obama, had they done wrong, should the same rule apply to Trump? Or is he off limits, and why?
And the only reason I ask this here is that there are many Trump supporters who seem to think Trump can do no wrong and any charge brought against him must therefore be totally false and baseless. Do they also think Bill Clinton was totally innocent of charges brought against him? Or is party bias playing a role?
