ABC accuses President Obama of lawlessness

ABC accuses President Obama of encouraging lawlessness at home and abroad.

“There is no department of law in President Obama’s White House,” said ABC’s Kate Snow in a scathing editorial on Monday. Snow compared the White House’s lawless behavior with that of states such as Alaska, whose Department of Law works closely with the governor to “ensure fair and impartial administration of the law for all Americans”.

According to Snow, President Obama’s only legal advice comes from the “tax cheats and frauds” heading his cabinet-level departments.

Snow repeated her “curious comment about the ‘Dept of Law’ at the WH” on the social network site Twitter.

Snow’s accusations of unlawful behavior domestically come when the President is also accused of encouraging unlawful behavior abroad. In Iran, the President is accused of supporting ballot fraud on the part of Iranian President Mahmoud Amadinejad, and in Honduras he supports the unlawful behaviors of President Mel Zelaya.

Honduras’s constitution, like the United States constitution, limits presidents to two terms of office. Zelaya’s attempt to extend his stay to three terms was ruled illegal by the Honduran Supreme Court, and he was then replaced by the Honduran legislature.

President Obama has spoken in favor of restoring Zelaya to power against the wishes of the Honduran courts and legislature. He has also voiced opposition to sanctions on Iran following the Iranian government’s fraud-filled election.

In her ABC editorial, Snow accused the president of ethical violations. “There is no law in the White House,” she said. “There is no one to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior while the president condones it.”

Snow praised the Alaskan model. “I think the federal government has a lot to learn from Alaska’s ‘Department of Law’,” she said. “America is supposed to be a country of justice for all. The federal government needs a cabinet-level department of law… a department of justice for all Americans.”
