Donald Trump Pooh-Poohs Due Process

On Face the Nation today, Trump decided to be judge and jury.

In case you were somehow lulled into a complacent place where you thought Donald Trump would respect the rule of law and due process, he wants to remind you that he totally does not.

When asked about Clinton's email nothingburger, Trump said, "I would certainly have my, very fair, but I would have my attorney general look at it."

Not content to stop there, he continued, "Yes, I would. Because everyone knows that she's guilty."

However, Don the Con would like viewers to know that in spite of his judgment, he would still have his Attorney General have a look, because "maybe they would disagree."

As if that would make any difference. This guy does not understand due process, the rule of law, or how any of this works. But it doesn't really matter, because if he was elected, none of it would work anyway.

Can you help us out?
