In dismissing Trump’s suit against the Manhattan District of Attorney regarding his tax returns, United States District Judge Victor Marrero of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, sitting at Manhattan, made a groundbreaking legal finding.
He found that the Dixon Memo, propagated by the Justice Department in 1973, is null and void and of no legal effect. He found that the President of the United States is fully subject to investigation, indictment, arrest, prosecution and imprisonment while in office.
This is a critically important check on the President that will go far beyond Trump to all future Presidents and ensure that none can hold themselves above the law.
Glad to see the Dixon Memo finally placed in the circular file where it belongs.
