DD11: Is Trump's Cabinet Unconstitutional?

by The Daily Dose | Updated on 1.17.19

President Trump's cabinet includes a bunch of officials who haven't been confirmed by the Senate -- and he's in no hurry to change that. Does that mean he's violating the constitution?

    His cabinet is filled with unqualified special interests out to protect industries from facing consequences for all manner of business malpractice or harm caused to the public. If I’m remembering things correctly, the government is of, by, and for the people, not companies and profits. Time to start getting back to that model.

    Whether his cabinet is unconstitutional is for the courts to decide. Trump has expanded the swamp, weakened the government, actively worked against the people and security of the United States, and done the work of Vladimir Putin. His cabinet was specifically chosen to establish the plutocracy the Republican Party has worked so hard for so many years to achieve.

    Not only does he have his intimate family members deeply involved in his cabinet, he has not let go of his assets, and continues to make money in the private market while being paid as a public servant, creating a massive, and unconstitutional conflict of interests. The fact that his children have been given official positions in unheard of. And all of his cabinet choices are obvious assets to him as rich and influential people who will do his bidding for their own personal gains. There is no transparency, a clear intention to prevent journalists from reporting to the American people, and a deep sense of racism and inhumanity. Impeach the peach.

    When people leave the President has time to select, vet and get confirmed a new person. This is the same as you would with any job in the public or private sector. Of course, the other reality is that Schumer and the dems have put the brakes on confirming many of Trump’s appointees for many positions throughout his administration. As a result, many positions are still manned by Obama appointees who leak info to the dems and the crooked MSM. Its doubtful that Trump will get all of his appointees confirmed by the time his 4 YEAR TERM ends. Dems, don’t be surprised if the GOP do likewise to a dem President should the dems win the WH. Turn-around is certainly fair play especially in politics. This is another left slanted, stupid question put out by this app.

    My Papa told me to always look back in history because it tells all. Here is my opinion: Warren G. Harding (conservative): Several members of cabinet had scandals relating to oil. Calvin Coolidge (conservative): made sure of prosecution of many WGH cabinet members. Nixon (conservative): Staff deleted several tapes relating to Watergate. I’m trying not to be bias, but I cannot remember that many liberals with tough scandals. We can also look back at Jackson’s presidency, but his cabinet had very small scandals. The question is constitutionality. I believe thatif they can be prosecuted for not abiding by law, like WGH’s Teapot Dome scandal. Not good stuff. If found with evidence similar to an oligopoly, then Trump will be under fire.

    President Trump's cabinet includes a bunch of illegal officials who haven't been confirmed by the Senate, but appointed! I have come to the conclusion he needs to go to jail and bypass impeachment.

    Acting Cabinet members should only have advisory status. They should have full Cabinet member status after Constitutional requirements are met. The Congress should have full power to remove an Acting Cabinet member after 90 days and to assign the a new cabinet member. The President not meeting constitutional requirement for cabinet member should be censored and impeached.

    The Trump and his Regime does not ‘think’ he/they do not have to follow the laws of OUR land. It is past time that this pit of vipers must be eradicated, i.e. IMPEACHED!

    Acting as President and not really fulfilling the role is also unconstitutional and deserves someone who is competent to assume its responsibilities. It seems to me both issues have the same predications issue and that is Donald J. Trump. So we either abide by the Constitution or we are not living up to the claim of governing by the rule of law. We can’t have it both ways and still claim that we abiding by the mandates of the Constitution.

    What is unconstitutional is the democrat party, the party of the kkk segregation, and now socialism/communism., the party for illegals over U.S. citizens.

    It’s nothing more than the Senate Democratic obstructing taking place. President Trump's cabinet includes a bunch of officials who haven't been confirmed by the Senate -- and he's in no hurry to change that. Does that mean he's violating the constitution? Hell No!!!!!!! PayBack time Can well to be expected if, or when, we see a Democratic President occupies the White House, to wit - Obstruct, Hinder, Delay and all of the tactics being employed by the current Democratic Hierarchy. SneakyPete....... 👿👿DEMS👿👿......... 1*17*19.........

    Mitch McConnell especially should not get paid. I’d even go as far as freeze his assets if I could.
