As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Ken Starr: Trump’s Statements Do Not Rise to Obstruction

Former Special Prosecutor Ken Starr said Thursday that he does not believe Trump’s purported statements to ex-FBI Director James Comey amount to obstruction of Justice.

Obstruction of Justice is really a very hard crime to make out. It’s not just, you want the investigation to go away, you suggested the investigation goes away, you’ve got to take really affirmative action.

Starr noted that Trump was expressing a “hope” that the investigation into former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn would go away. “The language is far removed from a directive,” Starr said, even though Comey said he interpreted it that way.

  1. Thank you Mr Starr, sounds like common sense to me.
    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-06-15/putin-offers-asylum-leaker-comey And this is when President Putin is a bit jocular and serious at the same time. He offers Comey political asylum in Russia as Comey surely must be in the same situation as Snowden. Oh he is not ??? But an FBI boss who records his conversations with the President and then leaks the content to the media, why is he not persecuted , why are the authorities not hunting for him ? Yes indeed , Mr Putin, you have a good point there.

  2. Comey’s interpretation skills are severely lacking.

    When the Secretary of State is randomly transmitting classified documents willy nilly to who knows where and Comey felt that there wasn’t any intent shows me that either he has very poor judgement or he has a personal agenda to protect her.

    In either case, each would indicate that he has no business in that position.

    His credibility has been destroyed.
    Why take his word for anything?

  3. Much ado over nothing.

    Let’s find out how many Americans Obama was surveilling and illegally unmasking and illegally mishandling information. That’s where the REAL crime lies.

    Liberals are sick people. They have no morals or ethics. Obama and his liberal cronies hate the Constitution and free market capitalism. They do nothing but bleed the middle class dry.

    My tax rate is 40% and my healthcare is now $700 per month thanks to Obamacare. My car insurance is still just $25/month (thanks to Insurance Panda), but if you look at Democrat strongholds like Detroit and New Orleans, where car insurance will run you $300+ per month, it’s easy to be pessimistic about the future of the United Socialist States of America.

    The cultural Marxists have really done a number on Western youth, haven’t they? What a bunch of sick people.

    I wonder how many liberals will ultimately be indicted for illegal leaking?

  4. It doesn’t matter. Rosenstein and Mueller are double teaming just like Comey and Mueller were.

    Sessions is to weak to do the housecleaning. So someone needs to be appointed to go in and clean house at DOJ and the FBI. I have zero confidence in the Clinton/Obama personnel.
