“A significant person of interest…”

Six PM on Friday, that’s when the bombshells happen. I am guessing Jared Kushner.

Even as members of Congress were mulling over the expansion of the case into possible cover-up, and its reclassification from counterintelligence to criminal, the scandal appeared to grow. The Washington Post reported Friday afternoon that federal investigators were looking at a senior White House official as a “significant person of interest.” The article did not identify the official, though it noted that the person was “someone close to the president.”

A person of interest is someone law enforcement identifies as relevant to an investigation but who has not been charged or arrested.

Cover-ups have traditionally been a major part of investigations that have threatened previous administrations. Articles of impeachment levied against Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton included allegations of obstruction of justice, as they were suspected of trying to hide other wrongdoing.

Pentagon Recognizes United Airlines’ Unique Talent

“Pentagon awards contract to United Airlines to forcibly remove Assad”

WASHINGTON — The Pentagon announced Tuesday it had awarded a sole-source contract to United Airlines for work related to the forcible removal of President Bashar al-Assad from Syria.

The contract, worth $2.1 billion, tasks the airline company with locating Assad, grabbing him from his seat in the presidential palace, and “dragging him out of Damascus by his arms.” The contract also notes that Assad should be “asked several times, politely” to give up his seat of power, though if he refuses, United workers should bloody his nose up a bit, according to the posting at FedBizOpps.”

Robert Mueller appointed to be Special Counsel

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to serve as special counsel to oversee the previously confirmed FBI investigation of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election and related matters.

“I have determined that a Special Counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome,” Rosenstein said in a statement.

I’m looking forward to this. Sounds like a lot of fun.

As far as Obstruction of Justice is concerned, this is what I am reading…

The memo allegedly says that the president said, in a private conversation with Comey at the White House, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

That does not come close to reaching the legal threshold for Obstruction of Justice. You see, I once faced a charge of Obstruction of Justice. I’m glad they didn’t pursue it (got me on a Firearms Offense) because I was guilty as sin.

THIS is what Obstruction of Justice consists of…

     Obstruction of Justice

Obstruction of justice is defined in the omnibus clause of 18 U.S.C. § 1503, which provides that “whoever . . . . corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be (guilty of an offense).” Persons are charged under this statute based on allegations that a defendant intended to intefere with an official proceeding, by doing things such as destroying evidence, or intefering with the duties of jurors or court officers.

A person obstructs justice when they have a specific intent to obstruct or interfere with a judicial proceeding. For a person to be convicted of obstructing justice, they must not only have the specific intent to obstruct the proceeding, but the person must know (1) that a proceeding was actually pending at the time; and (2) there must be a nexus between the defendant’s endeavor to obstruct justice and the proceeding, and the defendant must have knowledge of this nexus.

§ 1503 applies only to federal judicial proceedings. Under § 1505, however, a defendant can be convicted of obstruction of justice by obstructing a pending proceeding before Congress or a federal agency. A pending proceeding could include an informal investigation by an executive agency.

When you’re dumb enough to believe your own bullshit you will inevitably walk into an ambush of your own making. Feel free to quote me on that.

Who Is Actually Funding Leftist Violence?

George Soros, of course, but he’s not the biggest donor.

“Meet the leftist billionaire who outspends Soros on politics”

Most people who pay attention to politics assume that George Soros is the largest financier of leftist election candidates. While he may have the largest non-profit funding network, Soros is not the person who spent the most directly helping candidates through superPACs or other organizations in 2016. That person is Tom Steyer, a former hedge fund executive who made his fortune in the fossil fuel industry. The Washington Post reported Steyer spent $66.3 million helping Democrats in the 2016 cycle, and the Washington Times reports that the final spend was north of $85 million.

How much did legendary leftist George Soros spend in 2016? A meager $17.5 million.”

So, Will Donald Trump Fight?

He is being overwhelmed by innuendo and news reports that contain information from ‘Unnamed sources’. He is getting warnings from people who should know that the so-called ‘Deep State’, career bureaucrats, have ‘Declared War On Him’.

“Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: Trump Needs to Understand Deep State Has Declared War on His Administration”

It’s not just the ‘Deep State’, either. It looks like the media is leading the charges. CNN, for instance, has been found to have done anti-Trump stories 92% of the time.

Regardless, we know there is a concentrated effort by Democrats, the media, and some Republicans to bring down the trump administration. It appears that the relentless attacks on him are succeeding. But what will Mr. Trump decide to do? He has two choices. He can either fight the machine or he can give up and resign.

First indications are that he will fight:

Erdogan’s bodyguards beat protestors in US

Turkish police beat protesters on American soil.

Nine people were hurt and two arrests were made during an altercation at the Turkish ambassador’s residence in the US capital during a visit by president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, police have said.

Doug Buchanan, a DC Fire and EMS spokesman, said two of those hurt were seriously injured and were taken to hospitals by ambulance. He said by phone that emergency personnel were called to the residence about 4:30pm Tuesday.

According to witnesses, the brawl erupted when the Turkish president’s security detail attacked protesters carrying the flag of the Kurdish PYD party outside the residence.

A local NBC television affiliate reported Erdoğan was inside the building at the time.

NYT: Trump asked Comey to end Flynn investigation

If this is true – and that is a big “if” – it is certainly an impeachable offense. Frankly, if Trump did make the request, Comey should have reported it to Congress or resigned. He did neither.

President Trump asked the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, to shut down the federal investigation into Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, in an Oval Office meeting in February, according to a memo Mr. Comey wrote shortly after the meeting.

“I hope you can let this go,” the president told Mr. Comey, according to the memo.

The documentation of Mr. Trump’s request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia. Late Tuesday, Representative Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, demanded that the F.B.I. turn over all “memoranda, notes, summaries, and recordings” of discussions between Mr. Trump and Mr. Comey. Such documents, Mr. Chaffetz wrote, would “raise questions as to whether the president attempted to influence or impede” the F.B.I.

Mr. Comey wrote the memo detailing his conversation with the president immediately after the meeting, which took place the day after Mr. Flynn resigned, according to two people who read the memo. It was part of a paper trail Mr. Comey created documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation.

We are going to need to see that memo.
