LawNewz – The first few weeks of the Trump administration have been riddled with controversy. Now, former Ohio Judge Mark Painter is calling for an end to Donald Trump‘s presidency less than a month after it began.
Painter, a Republican, wrote a scathing editorial for Cincinnati.com in which he discussed some of the highlights (or lowlights, as far as he’s concerned) of Trump’s brief time in office. A Twitter jab at Nordstrom over his daughter’s clothing line, the Pentagon looking into renting space at Trump Tower, issues of conflicts of interests with his businesses, “illegal” orders, and insulting a “so-called judge” are some of the notable hallmarks of the administration that Painter mentions, shocked that Trump has gotten away with them.
“In any time except our post-factual era, no office holder, much less the president, could get away with any one of the dozens of dazzlingly illegal things Trump has already done,” Painter, who served as a judge for 30 years, wrote. “They would forfeit office immediately.”
