An 'Outrageous Abuse of Executive Power'

I do not know the exact composition of the rationale. But it is crystal clear that we are witnessing  arrant lawlessness and a silent collusion in lawlessness. I have had occasion to quote these lines from  A Man for All Seasons before in this space. Roper, the prospective son-in-law of Sir Thomas More,  urges him to arrest someone they suspect of being a spy. For what? More asks. He hasn’t broken any law. That doesn’t matter, says  Roper. He’s a danger to you. “What would you do,” asks More, “cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?” Says Roper: “I’d cut down every law in England to do that!” More replies: “And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you — where would you hide, Roper, the laws being all flat?”

It’s a good question, isn’t it?  When the leader of the free world makes his way back from the links, maybe someone will ask him about that.
