The Presidential Oath of Office specified in Article II of the U.S. Constitution states: “I do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of the President of the United States, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
On July 16, 2018 the world watched Donald J. Trump , in essence, “levy war against our country”, by aiding and comforting a known enemy who meddled with our 2016 elections. Can the current U.S. President be charged with treason? Opinions vary on this topic. Who holds the US President accountable for violating the Presidential Oath of Office? Is a violation of the Oath of Office a Federal Crime? Ordinary citizens might reflect on and question many aspects of Presidential behavior, and wonder about who holds the President accountable to the Oath…and how?
The U.S. President, as well as the U.S. Vice President, the Supreme Court, and Members of Congress are all required to take an Oath of Office in which they swear to protect the Constitution of the United States. Who holds them accountable? Inquiring minds want to know!
