Opinion: Roger Stone reminds us that power corrupts
We are learning by the minute for all the four resigned government prosecutors and the ones whose working with Attorney General William Barr are all corruptible to give a lenient charge to a friend of the President, Roger Stone. That is what we are learning.
We are not learning the value of rule of law or justice, neither that the Courts or the Department of Justice is independent from the White House. No, they are entangled and co-operating as a joint force for their friends and partners. Therefore, the enemies of the White House might be targeted, while friends will walk-off easy. Even if the friends have worked against the law, conspired to breach of public trust and not obligated their role as a person who should have been labelled a foreign agent for instance.
As long as that person works for the Trump Organization or the White House. That doesn’t matter, AG Barr got your back and so does Trump. They don’t care if they are involving foreign powers to leak internal documents from the campaign of another presidential candidate. If they are conspiring to tarnish another candidates opportunities and family relations. That doesn’t matter, as long as they are working for the grander cause, which just happens to be the Trump’s own winning.
That is the reality of it all. That is the truth in this moment. Roger Stone, the man who was connected with WikiLeaks, who talked with central people in the Trump Campaign and who knew more than what he told the authorities. The man who obstructed justice and who intimidated witnesses for the Special Counsel Robert Mueller. That man is getting lenient jail time, because his a loyal man to Trump.
AG Barr is doing what Jeff Sessions couldn’t do. He recused himself and gave way, so the Deputy AG had to do something. Both of them are gone now. Others has resigned or been sacked by this Presidency. So, only the loyalists are there, the ones not caring about rule of law or justice. Just the ones loyal to the President and his cause. The cause which is to please the President by any means and use the office to enlarge his rule.
Roger Stone is a hack, but his Trump’s own personal hack. His the Nixonian character in the chambers of the President’s men. A man who will use all means to further both himself politically, but also the President. That is the sort of man Stone is, this is why he was useful and been a part of Trump’s Presidency.
Now his facing time, 4 prosecutors have resigned because of Stone and the DOJ’s actions. They are not caring about the implications, but moving along. These men doesn’t value the Constitution and neither the law. Only blind submission to one man. That is what it has gone down too. The statutes, the legislation or anything is far-sided. What matters is the will of Trump.
So, now this is what America is and how it operates. There is nothing to learn here, just another tin-pot dictator in the flesh. No difference between the acts of Trump and other half-baked President’s for life. Using the office to help friends and allies, while letting their enemies burn. That is what this man does and its evident.
We can just point at the Penguin aka Roger Stone. His the proof. Peace.
