In a video editorial Tuesday, New York Times Editorial Board writer Jesse Wegman criticized President Trump for attacking the integrity of former FBI Director Jim Comey, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller and U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein because Trump is “least law-abiding president we’ve ever had.”
“If Donald Trump is accusing people like this of not having integrity, whether it be Jim Comey, or Rod Rosenstein or Robert Mueller who have spent their lives working to uphold the rule of law, he doesn’t care.
“It’s not to say that James Comey is a saint or that Rod Rosenstein has never made a mistake in his life, it’s to say that I don’t think anyone can dispute that these men are people who have devoted their lives and their careers to upholding the law. And they’re being attacked on those grounds by the leats law-abiding president we’ve ever had.”
Wegman then goes on to talk about the odds for impeaching Trump.
“There’s just no way short of Donald Trump eating live babies in the White House, there is no way he’s going to be impeached. There aren’t the votes in Congress. The American people are going to have to deal with this problem by showing up at the polls, by expressing their values and by voting in people who will uphold those values.”
This is another case of sour grapes from the media, who continue to try and bring down Trump with factless accusations.
