Special counsel moves to obstruction investigation

The investigation rolls on…

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said.

The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said.

If Bill Clinton read those Tweets he is probably thinking about how a lawsuit filed by Paula Jones resulted in the discovery of Monica Lewinsky which resulted his parsing the word ‘is’ which led to an accusation of perjury which led to his impeachment and disbarment.

I am guessing that if Richard Nixon were alive he would be thinking about how a ameteur burglary with which he had nothing to do resulted in a cover up and an obstruction charge that resulted in his resignation.

Yep. Once the hounds are released, they never give up.

    I think Don is right that he is the subject of a political witch hunt. It is kind of hard to feel sorry for him, however, since he has taken up the torch and pitchfork in his own witch hunts. He was, for example, the most prominent voice in the Birther witch hunt.

    Still, he is the subject of a witch hunt. I am guessing the Japanese Americans put in camps during World War II, for example, would consider the witch hunt of which they were the quarry to be somewhat larger.

    I am pretty sure that everyone in America wants Trump to fire Mueller. Trump’s supporters want him to do it because they hate Mueller. Everybody else wants him to do it for the high-class entertainment value.

    I think the White House and Republican supporters are sweating. Nobody really believes that Comey perjured himself. If they did, they would be going in for the kill, not simply tossing around innuendo. That means Mueller has the right to discovery and, as in the case of Clinton and Nixon, the discovery may discover shit that is only tangentially related to the current situation… like the finances of Trump, Flynn et al. Once the hounds are released….

    This has been Trumps opponents strategery since day 1: keep making shit up and see if it sticks. If it doesn’t stick, keep making shit up.

      They’ll eventually get him on a minor technicality unrelated to their accusations and they will be ecstatic when they do. I don’t want that to happen, but, they are just not letting up.

        If the hounds were released on everybody, eventually everybody would be convicted on multiple felonies.

      Correct. And the only reason that they can get away with it is because of the leftist press. Breitbart was correct. Our enemy is not the democrats or the RINOs. It is the press.

    comey has done a pretty good job directing this whole fiasco.

    I might remind the president that it is his outfit there in DC that would be responsible for bringing charges against her. That none have been filed is on him.

      Seriously now… Why is he talking like he is man-on-the-street and not the President of the United States and constitutionally endowed with the ultimate authority to enforce and prosecute the laws of the land?
