Immunity

Our president seems not to like to wear the surgical masks like the rest of us having to deal with this pandemic. Is he immune? Which brings to mind the legal sense of immunity, something William Barr suggested George H.W. Bush grant to his Secretary of Defense Casper Weinberger during the pressures of the Iran/Contra investigations. Turned out to be a great idea, since other testimonies hinged on the existence of a journal Weinberger kept but no longer had to give to the prosecution.

It’s said that George H.W. himself would have been implicated in the scheme had the journal been offered into evidence. We can expect William Barr to work equally hard for Trump, no matter what damage his presidency might do to the Republic because the Republic can very easily die when Justice no longer functions as it should.
