Comment Re:Who has money on his resignation / impeachment? (Score 1) 737

The FBI is an executive agency. ALL OF THE FBIs authority flows entirely from the Constitutional powers granted to the president.

No the president is not above the law but it is in appropriate for any part of the executive branch to be doing anything other than supporting the president. If there is a problem Congress needs to investigate and deal with it.

Executive branch employees who cannot toe the line should fired, with cause.

You do know this all hit the supreme court under nixon and they ruled that it is illegal for the president to fire someone investigating him right?

I gave up trying to get bleeding edge anything on those distros. I just run docker and run my bleeding edge service within docker.

I say for every dollar wasted on this whole Russia BS, two dollars get used for obummer and Hitlery investigation of corruption.

So considering all the money spent investigating Hillary (Benghazi, email, et. al) We should only need to spend another 2 billion or so by your math investigating trump.

He can't get in trouble for declassification per se, but he could get in trouble for the content he declassifies. Say he declassifies nuclear secrets thereby committing treason by "adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort". Or in the case of Obama wiretapping if it is in fact false it could very easily land him in court for libel. There most certainly can be legal consequences to declassifying information even for the president.
