Other countries have long viewed their political leaders as fallible and prosecutable, unless they’re a Russia, China, North Korea, etc. But we’re discovering from presidential memoirs and historians’ interviews that the practice was never adopted here for a number of reasons, most notably because it was felt Americans weren’t ready for such a thing. The day a people aren’t ready for justice to be served is a whole other conversation. Yet, we have finally arrived at a point in history that one man’s lying ways caught him in a web of deceit that is now threatening to forever tarnish whatever legacy he wanted to leave — and this isn’t even the most serious of charges he’s facing. But isn’t it always the simplest of lies that takes anyone down?
