Why is it taking so long to prosecute Trump?
Laurence Tribe, Harvard Law Professor, was interviewed by Living room:
“One possible answer is that it is not easy to get a president’s conviction. What seems attractive to a layman will be difficult in practice. It will also be difficult to quell the riots that the very announcement of an indictment can bring. There may be a lot of concern about fomenting a civil war without a good ending, because we will not hold the president to account ”.
“In the end, all I can do is argue against that if you’re worried about the consequences of going ahead with this evidence against Trump and maybe not convicting him, then you better start worrying about the consequences of not going ahead with this evidence – and telling future presidents, including this president, who is undoubtedly going to try to take power again one way or another, that they can get away with it. If that’s the message, then the rule of law has basically been thrown out the window. “
