How Soon Should We Discuss Presidential Investigations and Abuse of Power?


Do we wait until he is out of office?

No.  Not that guy.

On NPR’s Morning Edition, Steve Inskeep interviewed a House Democrat about the future of their party under Donald Trump.   Here are his first two questions:

Do you think there are Republicans – while you say they may disagree with you on most issues – are willing to join Democrats in serving as a check against the president if he should abuse his power?

How much power if any do Democrats have to trigger investigations of this administration?

Forgive me if I’m wrong, but in the past, haven’t discussions of the abuse of power usually been reserved until at least after the inauguration? Don’t we usually wait until there has been abuse of power before we openly talk about providing a check against the president?

No shame.
