The Inquisition of Donald Trump

Early in January 2017, New York Times columnist Charles Blow charged that Russian hackers had invaded Democrat Party computers and that therefore Donald Trump’s presidency would be “illegitimate.” [1]

Blow’s claim was called by the World Socialist Web Site “a revival of the scaremongering and witch-hunting methods of McCarthyism, now directed against Russia and Trump, Moscow’s alleged agent in Washington.” [1]

Later, on May 18, 2017, President Trump tweeted, “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!”

The president was referring to a new Inquisition, headed by Special Inquisitor Robert Mueller, appointed the previous day. Had Trump made a “pact” (collusion) with “the devil” (Russia)? If so he would technically be a wizard, not a witch. But the “witch hunt” rubric is satisfactory for describing what is occurring.

Previous Inquisitors have been Lawrence Walsh and Kenneth Starr. Walsh investigated the Iran-Contra affair. He submitted his final report on August 4, 1993. [2] Kenneth Starr was initially appointed to investigate the “suicide” death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster and the Whitewater real estate investments of Bill Clinton. After several years of investigation, Starr filed the Starr Report. [3]

Making a pact with the devil (colluding with Russia) is common in cases of witchcraft. For instance, the devil sometimes visits afflicted persons, either in person or speaking to them through the mouth of another, “and he promises that, if they will agree to his counsels, he will do for them whatever they wish.” [4]

In just such a way, the devil may have visited Donald Trump and promised him the presidency in return for agreeing to his (Russia’s) counsels. And so a Special Inquisitor was appointed to investigate.

Undoubtedly, Inquisitor Mueller is dusting off now a copy of the Malleus Maleficarum (Witches Hammer), the standard guide book for witch hunts, due to the serious nature of the case.

We can glean from the Witches Hammer just how the Inquisition is likely to proceed. It is advised therein that the Inquisitor “need not require any writ, or demand that the action be contested.” This thereby disallows “all dilatory exceptions, appeals and obstructions, the impertinent contentions of pleaders and advocates, and the quarrels of witnesses.” [4] In other words, no defense attorneys for President Trump are allowed during the Inquisition.

The Witches Hammer outlines three circumstances which can justify the opening of an Inquisition: (1) an open accusation, in which case the Law of Talion would apply to the accuser if the accused was found not guilty; (2) secret accusation (informers), which would be the “anonymous sources” in the Trump “witchcraft” case; and (3) widespread reports of “witchcraft”, i.e., the constant “news” insinuations about Trump and Russia. (Further background: Witch Hunt Proceedings, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, July 28, 2017.)

If there is any open accusation (number 1, above), the Inquisitor is advised by the Malleus Maleficarum to persuade the accuser to change his status to informer (number 2, above). This is urged because “the deeds of witches in conjunction with devils are done in secret, and the accuser cannot in this case, as in others, have definite evidence by which he can make his statements good.” There is also the “grave danger that is incurred by an accuser”, i.e., the Law of Talion as well as possible revenge by the “witch”. [4]

Pertinent to the Inquisition against Trump, the Inquisitor is advised to inquire if the suspect “had lived in foreign districts, especially in such places as are most frequented by witches…” [4] Inquisitor Mueller will likely take heed of this, since Trump has been known to visit Russia, and Russia lately is being viewed as “the devil.”

When the proceedings are at last finished, the Inquisitor “shall decide whether the fact [witchcraft, a pact with Russian ‘devils’] is fully proven.” [4] At which point, like Walsh and Starr before him, Inquisitor Mueller can issue a lengthy report.
