Did Donald Trump Obstruct Justice?

Arguably, yes, according to the analysis at Lawfare. Also, witness tampering.

The question is: What are the Republicans going to do about it?

For now, I'm betting on: "Nothing." Because party loyalty trumps loyalty to the rule of law.

Odd that this all came out *AFTER* Comey was fired.

Where was all this last week?

Or was Comey hiding this for some reason?

Are you really surprised that an experienced government official, let alone a lawyer, would write a memo after talking to the President?

B said...

No, I would expect that. What I would also expect is that such a Bad Thing would come to light BEFORE the firing. Afterwards, it looks like Bullshit.

At this point, it is heresay, and what looks like Sour Grapes because he got fired.

If he were a stand up guy, he'd have said something BEFORE.

Especially there are 'tapes".

Anyone can write a memo about what he "claims" he heard at a meeting....

I don't know, and neither do you. I do know that I don't trust Trump, but that I don't trust Comey even more.

B, once the evidence comes out we'll all know, one way or the other. You may be correct in that this is a CYA move. It may be sour grapes. It may be in retaliation for the "tapes" tweet.
But it may be a shrewd move by someone who could see what could happen when dealing with Trump.

My bias says the latter. Yours is the former. We can agree to disagree. But we can also agree that this country should be better than this petty bullshit happening now.


B said...

DTWND. Yes, we can agree on that. Both sides are covering themselves in shit.

We need better politicians. On BOTH sides.

As I've said before, it is sad that the RNC couldn't find any candidates that were better than Trump....And that the DNC only gave us a candidate to vote AGAINST. Which is how we got trump. The country chose the least bad option.

And the thing is, there are LOTS, on both sides, that we could likely both vote for. But they never got a chance, did they?
