Truth Inspect: Donald Trump’s ‘Do Whatever I Desired’ Remark About Shooting Robert Mueller Not Ultimate Power

Home Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued Thursday that President Donald Trump broke the fundamental principle of the Constitution by saying in an interview that Article II enabled him to “do whatever I want.”

Here is what Pelosi stated after announcing the Democrat’s intent to impeach the president:

His wrongdoing strikes at the very heart of our Constitution.

She repeated the claim in a CNN town hall on Thursday:

Because Constitution, the genius of everything was the system of checks and balances. They did not want a queen. They did not want a president king. That’s what they combated the war against.

The president stated– Short article I is the legislative branch.

So for me, this is about honoring our oath of office, making sure that the Constitution is respected.

Pelosi said Trump was betraying the Founders and the Constitution by functioning as a “king” or a “king,” utilizing recommendations to the monarchy five times in her impeachment declaration and a minimum of six times in the CNN city center.

However Pelosi is taking the president out of context. The Trump comment about Short article II is drawn from a June interview with ABC News host George Stephanopoulos.

Trump said:

Look, Post II, I would be enabled to fire Robert Mueller. Presuming I did all of the things, I stated I want to fire him. Number one, I didn’t. He wasn’t fired. Top, extremely significantly however more importantly, Short article II enables me to do whatever I desire. Short article II would allow me to fire him. I wasn’t going to fire him. You know why– since I saw Richard Nixon firing everyone and that didn’t exercise too well.

Pelosi is hanging the case for impeachment on a terribly misunderstood quote. As the duly chosen president of the United States, Donald Trump has the authority to employ and fire any person in his administration.

Trump properly mentioned his authority given to him by Short article II to enable him to fire Unique Counsel Robert Mueller, even though he never ever did. The president did not mention Post II to make the case that he was above the separation of powers in the Constitution.
