So, is the new

“normal” for a former President to face harassing piddly-poke misdemeanor charges (or worse) as soon as he leaves office?

Just so you know, THIS is why Caesar crossed the Rubicon (the border of Rome itself) with his army (it was illegal to do so under arms). Caesar’s political enemies had every intention of dragging him to court on trumped-up charges as soon as he left his command (he, by law, couldn’t be charged while he was an official military leader).

Caesar had extended his command in transalpine Gaul several times because of that threat, but the time of him extending his command (and thus his “official” status) was rapidly coming to an end. And that meant that he would be prosecuted and exiled–or worse. The sharks were circling…

So after Caesar had protected and enriched Rome he would return, only to be charged and exiled. It just didn’t seem fair! And his soldiers were fiercely loyal… to him! (not to Rome)

So Caesar was faced with either marching on and taking Rome or being ruined and exiled. And this after all he’d done for the country! So he famously threw the dice (“the die is cast”) and marched on and took Rome. Thus began the line of Roman emperors. The Republic was destroyed…

Democrats did a horrible thing, here. Are they just ignorant of history? This is totally stupid!
