Skip to comments.Ken Starr Bursts CNNís Bubble; ďNo Obstruction Case Against Trump From What Iíve SeenĒ

With the Russian collusion case against the Trump administration all but dead, the mainstream media has shifted their full attention to now building an obstruction of justice case against the White House. As such, CNN hosted Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel appointed in the 90s to look into various Clinton scandals, including the Vince Foster death and Monica Lewinsky episode, this morning to get his thoughts on the topic.
CNN: Do you think there is a case there?
Starr: Its too soon to tell. From what Ive seen and of course we dont know a whole lot the answer is no. But it is going to be investigated and so we will soon know.
Obstruction of justice is really a very hard crime to make out. Its not just you want the investigation to go away, you suggest that the investigation goes away. Youve got to take really affirmative action and Director Comey said in his testimony that even though the expression was hope, he took it as a directive.
But what we know is, he didnt do anything about it, right? That is that he did not dismiss the investigation or curtail the investigation. Theres an expression of hope, so it becomes an interpretation.
Of course, the incredulous CNN anchor was simply unwilling to accept that Trump may be innocent of high crimes and pressed further by asking whether Comey would have had to obey Trumps suggestion to drop the Flynn investigation in order to be guilty of obstruction.

More amazing, why would Starr give them the time of day?
But at least we are STILL NOT TALKING ABOUT JAILING HILLIARY
Ken Starr???? Wow that is a name out of the past.
It doesn’t have to be obstruction of justice for Mueller to call it obstruction of justice or for Trump to be impeached and convicted of obstruction of justice. In this environment, a lie is just as good as the truth.
Dershowitz said the same thing. And EVERYONE else has said the same thing.
Meanwhile, CNN is guilty of hundreds of counts of Obstruction of Governance
He’s right about this, but Ken Starr was wrong when he told ABC News that he didn’t see a conflict of interest with Mueller being close friends with Comey.
CNN is a joke. Flynn hasn’t been charged with anything. So what exactly was Trump obstructing? Nothing.
Dear Lord, Please keep these people that were hurt yesterday in Your Arms. Help them heal and get well. Bless our Nation, Our President and his family, and the American People. Amen.
LMAO. Mueller can go pound sand. Nobody will read his report. The Republicans in congress will never impeach Trump. Trump’s approval is over 80% with the republican base.
Nixon and Clinton got in trouble because congress was controlled by the opposition.
I have zero respect for Ken Starr, so it doesn’t matter to me what the heck he is thinking.
Of course he’s right here. He could tell me ice cream was could too. It wouldn’t matter.
All this obstruction talk is from a recollected conversation Comey had with Trump and we know it’s really what was said because he wrote about it in some unofficial memo that nobody can find?
Sounds about right, huh?
Didn’t Trump pardon Flynn? If not, that’s all he’d have to do instead of firing Comey.
Also, all Trump was saying was he hoped Comey didn’t Find anything. Trump needs to hire Bill Clinton as press secretary on this. He needs some word parsing.
In order for there to be obstruction of justice, there would first have to be justice, and there is none of that whatsoever in that goddamned stinking town.
How much is this worth, from a guy who stated:
There is no evidence Vince Foster's death was anything other than a suicide.
Ken Starr is a worthless POS.
“I have zero respect for Ken Starr, so it doesnt matter to me what the heck he is thinking.”
Hard to say whether Kenny Starr or Jimmy Comey has been the more loyal Clintonista.
I suppose Starr, because if BJ had paid for his crimes, we wouldn’t be paying so heavily for BJ’s wife’s crimes.
Just because there is no obstruction case against Trump does not mean that there will be no obstruction case launched against Trump. That is just a minor technicality that Mueller thinks can be covered over by a MSM barrage.
Strange how yesterday’s attempted mass murder of Republicans by a Democrat is completely out of the news.
