Abuse of Governmental Power

Getting on the enemies list of the nation's orator-in-chief can make one's life fraught with difficulties, as is spelled out in this Wall Street Journal essay.

One's liberty and property immediately are placed at risk. Even if the onslaught of regulatory attention comes to naught, the process is hugely expensive and extremely stressful to its target to an extent that is almost unimaginable.

It is beyond doubt that such actions have a chilling effect on legitimate political opposition to a dishonorable administration, and that effect is neither incidental nor accidental. It is intended by the morally corrupt administration that targets those it views as enemies.
