Trump Denied Due Process

The Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution provides in part that the accused shall enjoy the right to be confronted with the witnesses against him. In the strange case of Donald Trump, however, the witnesses all speak from the shadows and the U.S. President is denied the right to cross-examine.

As for the venue, it is not a court but the pages of newspapers.

Secret sources whose identity is not revealed make various accusations against President Donald Trump in the newspaper “court.” The President is not allowed to confront these shadows, look them in the eye, and cross-examine them under oath.

The Trial is a novel written by Franz Kafka from 1914 to 1915 and published in 1925. One of his best-known works, it tells the story of a man arrested and prosecuted by a remote, inaccessible authority. [1] The “remote, inaccessible authority” in the strange case of Donald Trump would be the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies who “affirmed” via James Clapper that the Russian government directed “election interference.” [2] Can these 17 U.S. intelligence agencies be subpoenaed and cross-examined under oath? How do you subpoena an intelligence agency? Again here we have unknown persons speaking from the shadows, who will not be cross-examined – an insult to the rights of every citizen, including even Mr. Trump.

It is amazing to me that so many Americans are not outraged by this trampling under of the U.S. Constitution. First they came for Donald Trump. And next they came for YOU.

A best-selling book from the 1990s, Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA, tells how Bill Clinton worked with the CIA in Arkansas to permit the “Agency” to use Arkansas factories to make untraceable weapons. Then-Governor Clinton  allowed CIA contract agents to train Contra pilots on rural airstrips in support of the war in Nicaragua – effectively evading the Congressional ban on military aid to the Contras. Hillary Clinton, wife of Bill Clinton, is, according to the late Sherman H. Skolnick, even higher-ranking in CIA than Bill. And the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies were cited by Hillary Clinton in the third presidential debate on October 19, 2016: “We have 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military, who have all concluded that these espionage attacks, these cyberattacks, come from the highest levels of the Kremlin, and they are designed to influence our election.” [3]

How stupid are we? Is this all an experiment designed to find that out? Proposed: a further experiment to determine whether millions of Americans can be convinced that the Moon is made of green cheese.
