“Fair is foul, and foul is fair” – Is Donald Trump a Victim and Has He Misappropriated the Term “Witch Hunt”?

ABSTRACT: A basic interpretation of the rule of law is that no one is above the law. The impeachments and indictments brought against former President Trump are viewed by many of his supporters as targeted attacks on him. The former President depicts himself as a victim, for example, calling his second impeachment a “witch hunt.” An overview of the concept of the rule of law will be presented, along with brief context, followed by a discussion of the use of the terms “victim” and “witch hunt.”
