Watson Coleman on the Supreme Court’s Prez Immunity Decision: ‘Astonishing and Dangerous’

Watson-Coleman, on the ground.

Today, Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-12) issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision in the presidential immunity case:

“This is an astonishing and dangerous decision. The Court has granted absolute immunity to presidents for official actions. Additionally, by failing to establish a clear rule for distinguishing between official and unofficial acts, the Court has taken more power for itself in determining when a president can and cannot be held accountable under the same laws that apply to all of us.

“It seems clear to me that the Court deliberately waited until the last possible moment to issue this decision because the majority did not want the former president to face a jury for his actions on January 6th before he faces the voters on November 5th. 

“This is the same Court that has shown itself time and time again to be motivated not by their Constitutional mandate, but by partisan political interests. The same Court that upended a half-century of precedent to strip away reproductive freedom from millions of women across the country, criminalized homelessness, legalized machine guns, and made it nearly impossible for civil servants to regulate the industries that ensure the goods and services provided to the American public are safe for consumption. 

“This is the same court on which multiple Justices have accepted and then tried to conceal lavish gifts of private jet flights and luxury yacht cruises from wealthy executives with business before the Court.

“We must take all available measures to reign in the increasingly unfettered power of this radical court, including a binding code of ethics and expanding the number of justices. Six people who were never elected cannot be allowed to continue destroying our democracy.”

  1. SCOTUS, PAID FOR BY THE GOP

    There’s no hiding the facts.

    The Supreme Court has forfeited their credibility and their respect.

    From here on, John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett have declared themselves to be at the beck and call of the Republican Party.

    By ruling that Felony Donnie has some level of immunity from prosecution for “official acts”, SCOTUS has given carte blanche for a president to willingly break the law and claim they were acting in an official capacity.

    Remember that famous statement from Putin’s BFF that he could shoot someone in Times Square and get away with it? The Six Scumbags just sanctioned it.

    Of course, we all know what SCOTUS did. They are helping the Traitor-in-Chief try to run out the clock, hoping he’ll be reelected (god forbid) and make his federal cases go away. And who is John Roberts kidding when he says the decision doesn’t put Agent Orangehair above the law? That’s EXACTLY what this ruling does!

    You know how Von Shitzinpants has been screaming “election interference”? Well, that’s what the court did today. They interfered not only with an election, but with the administration of justice. That has become the modus operandi of the Republican Party, and that conceit has now infested what was once the most respected judicial body in the world, but has now been reduced to a group of toadies doing the bidding of their masters in the GOP.

    If ever there was a need to expand the court, it is now. Of course, the Cult of Trump will never allow that. Kavanaugh, Gorsuch and Barrett shouldn’t even be wearing the robes, as they perjured themselves during their confirmation hearings. Thomas and Alito, showing their utter lack of integrity, ethics and morals, should have recused themselves from this case thanks to the actions of their spouses, in particular the odious Ginny Thomas, who to this day is still aligned with groups who have tried to overthrow the government.

    As for Chief Justice John Roberts, suffice it to say that history will regard him as the weakest, most intellectually inept leader of the Court in history.

    You know what’s funny? When the Supreme Court convenes in public session, the clerk of the court announces “God save the United States and this Honorable Court”. Well, the clerk should substitute the word “kangaroo” for “honorable”, because the Roberts court has shed any remaining honor they had.

    As for “god save the United States”, that’s up to us. We can no longer rely on the judiciary to preserve democracy. We must not allow evil to take over our government.

    The Supreme Court is bought and paid for by our country’s greatest enemy–the Republican Cult.

  2. Democrats (a/k/a Marxist Communists) don’t have any brain cells left. They are in full mental and emotional meltdown over the Supreme Court’s ruling on immunity. What idiot Democrats don’t understand is that the Court made a ruling on stare decisis–existing law that has been adjudicated (by and including Democrat-appointed Justices).

    Instead, we hear ranting and raving by Democrat-Communists, mostly non-lawyers, that we need to “expand” the court (the word is called “packing”). Even CNN and MSNBC legal experts are calling for Joe Biden to step down after Thursday night’s debate debacle. And, yesterday they were supporting the SCOTUS ruling, because if they don’t, their own President, Biden, will face criminal charges when he leaves office. Biden should face criminal charges anyway, since most of the crimes of influence peddling for cash, giving away the “farm” to the Communist Chinese and Iranians, opening the border in violation of national security protocols, allowing a Chinese spy balloon (may be 2 or 3) to fly over U.S. Military bases, cutting off our energy production to give our enemies more chances to sell their oil and gas, etc. occurred while Biden was a Senator or V.P. He’s not covered by the immunity ruling.

    The Democrat-Communist cult now has to deal with the law. I know they don’t like following the law, and thumb their noses at it every chance they get, but they can’t anymore. November 5th is coming fast. So, if Democrat-Communists want to come to God before then, they better start doing it now.
