Elements of fairness, justice missing
I always have liked the word “defenestration.” The formal/humorous definition is the act of throwing someone out a window. The informal definition is removing someone from a position of power or authority.
Defenestration has been around a long time and perhaps the most famous reference is “The Defenestration of Prague,” of which there were three, but the oddest one occurred in 1618 when three officials were thrown out the same window and all were unharmed except for their pride because they landed on a manure pile.
Even before he was sworn into office, President Donald Trump’s opponents were plotting his defenestration (using the informal definition) by pushing for his impeachment. As a lawyer, I like the ideas of fundamental fairness, due process, justice and just plain old “doing the right thing.”
Most Americans and Kentuckians agree. Regrettably, President Trump is being dealt a very poor hand by the Democrats in the House of Representatives, but I have great confidence that the U.S. Senate will end this defenestration/impeachment farce and put an end to the matter in favor of President Trump.
What bothers me as much as what the Democrats are trying to do to President Trump at the national level, is what has not been done to others who we all know need to be brought to justice – the rotten to the core Clintons, Bill and Hillary. Both Clintons have gotten away with so many crimes and miscarriages of justice that it makes me ill to think about it. There will be no justice in America until Hillary in particular is in jail.
Here in Kentucky, I have confidence that our Attorney General-elect Daniel Cameron will ensure that those who break the law in Kentucky will be brought to justice. God bless America and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
