MATTIS: TRUMP TRAMPLING CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS


Former defense secretary and retired Marine Gen. Jim Mattis delivered a stinging rebuke of President Trump, saying his ex-boss ordered troops to “violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens.” Writing in The Atlantic, Mattis was addressing Monday’s move to violently clear peaceful protesters so Trump could pose with a Bible in front of a nearby church. The president responded by tweeting, “Glad he is gone!” But Mattis’ successor, Mark Esper, said yesterday that he opposed Trump’s threat to invoke the Insurrection Act to deploy soldiers against the protesters.
