Ken Starr Bursts CNNís Bubble; ďNo Obstruction Case Against Trump From What Iíve SeenĒ
ValueBit.com ^ | 6-15-2017

Posted on 06/15/2017 9:55:47 AM PDT by blam

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 90’s 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: “It’s too soon to tell. From what I’ve seen — and of course we don’t 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. It’s not just you want the investigation to go away, you suggest that the investigation goes away. You’ve 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 didn’t do anything about it, right? That is that he did not dismiss the investigation or curtail the investigation. There’s 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’ Trump’s suggestion to drop the Flynn investigation in order to be guilty of obstruction.

I wonder why (Fake News) CNN would ask a (ahem) sexual pervert for his opinion?

More amazing, why would Starr give them the time of day?

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.

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.

If this is obstruction of justice, then Eric Holder obstructed justice when he dropped the voter intimidation case against the Philadelphia New Black Panthers.

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?

Ooooooooooooooooooooookay.

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.

Ken Starr, No Obstruction Case Against Trump From What I’ve Seen

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 doesn’t 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.
