Trump Inviolable?

Day by day, I’m learning of more and more crimes committed by Donald Trump. And yet no one has indicted him. One story that caught my eye was that of the discovery that Trump had taken multiple boxes of classified material from the White House to his private residence in Florida after his defeat in the 2020 election. Had I, during my long career of handling highly classified material, walked off with a box of secret documents, I’d have been immediately arrested, indicted, convicted, and imprisoned. But nothing happened to Trump.

Why? Does being the president of the United States put one above the law? Is he allowed to repeatedly break the law with impunity?

I shake my head in disbelief as the stories of Trump’s crimes accumulate. What kind of a country do I live in where a president can do endless damage and yet remain scot-free?

We are closer to tyranny than I realized.
