Opinion: The people who sit by while Trump sets Roger Stone free

By ruling on Thursday against President Donald Trump's effort to prevent a New York grand jury from getting its hands on his financial documents, the Supreme Court emphatically told Trump that no one -- not even the President of the United States -- is above the law. All nine justices agreed with one aspect of the ruling, that a president does not enjoy absolute immunity from state criminal process. A 7-to-2 majority also ruled that a state grand jury does not need to show a "heightened need" before serving a subpoena on a president. And, when it comes to congressional subpoenas, that solid majority rejected Trump's insistence that the House of Representatives must demonstrate "specific need" before obtaining his financial and banking records.
