Default In re: Trump's legal team's theory

"President Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow, on Sunday blasted special counsel Robert Mueller's review of the president's tweets for possible obstruction of justice, calling it "absurd."

"Obstruction of justice by tweet is absurd," Sekulow said on ABC's "This Week."
"The president has a First Amendment right to put his opinions out there."


http://thehill.com/homenews/sunday-t...weet-is-absurd

What is absurd is Trump's Lawyer's 'legal judgment' that President Trump is above the law. Such an argument has been tossed onto the trash heap of history in our county since the ratification of our Constitution and the Separation of Powers principle was established.

Clearly, obstruction of justice is in play, in the tweets and speeches of The President. See:

https://fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL34303.pdf



Obstruction of justice is the impediment of governmental activities. There are a host of federal criminal laws that prohibit obstructions of justice. The six most general outlaw obstruction of judicial proceedings:


(18 U.S.C. 1503), witness tampering (18 U.S.C. 1512), witness retaliation

(18 U.S.C. 1513), obstruction of congressional or administrative proceedings

(18 U.S.C. 1505)conspiracy to defraud the United States

(18 U.S.C. 371) and contempt (a creature of statute, rule
and common law).

In the meantime, Hillary is still loose, free, and cackling over all the wool she pulled over the dumbasses who worship her.

Please. No whines about the pissant female not being the topic of this thread. I did say" in the meantime". Now, back to the Trump hunt of the Keystone Kops.

HRC is yesterday's news. The Specious Allegations bore no fruit, even after years of investigations on Benghazi by the GOP, and the number of Rally's wherein Trumpanzees chanted in chorus, "lock her up". All of this based on allegations made by Trump that she destroyed evidence.

As the man said, "Trust but verify"; I'm sure RR was thinking of Trump even then.

Like shlt through a goose, white on rice, et cetera. Right after I said that in the meantime Hillary is still loose. How stupid do Hillary's butt kissers think Americans are?

The Trumpanzee chant "Lock her up!" will come back and bite plenty of people in the ass. The same way I said that Hillary would have her ass handed to her on election night.

I can just see Rye Bread tapping on his keyboard looking down his nose while huffing and puffing, and doing his best to project superiority over others while hiding behind his monitor. We have met his type many times.

And I have met and defeated Trumpanzees countless times. Time will tell if President Trump is guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors; the evidence he has provided in tweets and speeches is clearly his effort to obstruct justice, i.e. the Investigation of the Russian Cyber Attack on our Country.

While listening to this thread on "talkify", I wondered who in the hell would have thanked Manny for his usual in-post defecation.

It's a bit easier to see now how people could apologize for such a horrendously oafish President.

We may just have to wait for this scenario:

Lawrence O’Donnell Predicts The Humiliating Way Donald Trump’s Presidency May End
“When the clock strikes 12, the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court will administer the oath of office to her, no matter where it is—he doesn’t have to show up, he never has to concede, he doesn’t have to do a thing. The second she takes the oath she’s the president, he isn’t any longer. The Secret Service will physically remove him from the building, if he’s still there.”


His interviewer likened the process to removing a tick from a dog.
