Should a President’s decision-making authority differ from a policeman’s authority in regards to “reasonable search?”
The Chicago Tribune article titled: What if it were Barak Obama on trial in the Senate, ended with this statement.
“So, a last query. Shouldn’t we have a high standard for a President of the United States as for a high school principal?”
Then I applied myself to the understanding of wisdom, and also of madness and folly, but I learned that this, too, is a chasing after the wind. (Ecclesiastes 1:17)
The Purpose of This Post
Is to compare President Trumps authority to an average policeman regarding whether he should make a decision to prevent a criminal action potentially being in progress or just look the other way, or do whats right?
What’s My Point?
For example, consider this following statement ruling by the Supreme Court.
“ In answer to this limited question, the Court said it was not. It ruled that when an American policeman observes “unusual conduct which leads him reasonably to conclude in light of his experience that criminal activity may be afoot and that the persons with whom he is dealing may be armed and presently dangerous”, it is not a violation of the Fourth Amendment for the policeman to conduct a “stop-and-frisk” of the people he suspects.”
In other words, should the President of the United States be concerned about the son of a previous Vice President being paid $50,000 a month as arranged by Joe Biden who on tape admitted to doing what President Trump is being accused of doing. Or should he just look the other way as perhaps President Obama did and not question why $50,000 a month was being paid to his Vice President son possibly from the USA taxpayers giving $450 million dollars a year by Congress, or do what’s right ?
And if that is not a problem, why do they need USA taxpayer money if they can afford to pay their board members the same amounts?
In My Opinion
I still remember pondering whether or not to stop someone when I was an Auxiliary policeman or just turning my head and wonder if I should have stopped and frisked them, or do whats right/

Ever wonder how many times the members of Congress have looked the other way during their terms of office under Obama?
Should Trump be impeached or given a medal for asking the Ukraine Prime Minister “to do us (taxpayers) a favor?”.
If Trump is impeached for the reasons of being concerned about taxpayer’s funds, will it promote future Presidents to “turn the heads” and just let Governments do whatever they want with taxpayer money?
Or should we allow Presidents to have high standards about taxpayer’s money same as a policeman?
If King Solomon had to judge this impeachment, would he consider the charges madness and folly or a “chasing the wind” by his accusers?
