"This would be a valid legal argument -- if our government were a dictatorship"

A letter obtained by The New York Times and published Saturday revealed that Trump’s lawyers sent a confidential letter to special counsel Robert Mueller in January, arguing that the president could not have possibly obstructed justice because he has constitutional authority over all federal investigations.

“This would be a valid legal argument — if our government were a dictatorship,” Schumer tweeted. “Fortunately, we are a government of laws, not men. And in America, no one is above the law, including the president.”
