~~The Mueller Investigation: Season 2~~


Recommended Posts

I don't think we have an ongoing thread here yet about this. 

 

Some news today: Michael Cohen's new lawyer hints that Cohen has incriminating evidence on Trump:

I can see Cohen cooperating for the simple reason that a pardon from Trump won't solve his money problems, and we all know that Trump will never give him any money to help.

I was talking to my Dad about Cohen the other night and told my guess is Cohen is cooperating.  Shit's been too quiet on that front.  Also, where IS Ghouliani?

But privately, some of the lawyers have expressed concern that Mr. Mueller will stitch together several episodes, encounters and pieces of evidence, like the tweets, to build a case that the president embarked on a broad effort to interfere with the investigation. Prosecutors who lack one slam-dunk piece of evidence in obstruction cases often search for a larger pattern of behavior, legal experts said.

Quote

The special counsel’s investigators have told Mr. Trump’s lawyers they are examining the tweets under a wide-ranging obstruction-of-justice law beefed up after the Enron accounting scandal, according to the three people. The investigators did not explicitly say they were examining possible witness tampering, but the nature of the questions they want to ask the president, and the fact that they are scrutinizing his actions under a section of the United States Code titled “Tampering With a Witness, Victim, or an Informant,” raised concerns for his lawyers about Mr. Trump’s exposure in the investigation.

 

Enron, you say?

I think Republicans have gotten so good at pretending Trump's Twitter feed doesn't exist for political reasons that they've fooled themselves into thinking it doesn't matter for legal reasons.

 

"It's just something he said on Twitter" doesn't really work here. Trump's diarrhea of the thumbs is a fucking goldmine for criminal intent. It's the kind of minute by minute documenting of state of mind that prosecutors could only dream of a few decades ago.

I wonder if Ron Ryan hasn't had time to read this, or anything else, now that he's busy preparing for life after retirement

I love how Trump is effectively throwing his son under the bus by refusing to associate with what his son did.

 

Donald Trump Jr. was a lowly unpaid covfefe boy. Donald Trump has never even heard of him, couldn't pick him out in a room.
