Taking no care that the laws be faithfully executed

Viewing this case through the lens of criminal law is a mistake. The president takes an oath to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” …

We now know that, contrary to his oath to take care” that the laws be faithfully executed, the president tried to fire the special counsel, and he fired the head of the FBI, among other acts to thwart the investigation of criminal election interference by our enemies. These are not the acts of one faithful to the law. They are acts of one who would put his own election above the integrity of America’s democracy.
