Skip to comments.Former Watergate Prosecutor: “Mueller Has Good Obstruction Case” [semi-satire]
Posted on 06/06/2018 10:53:58 AM PDT by John Semmens
Former Assistant Watergate special prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks contends that Trumps repeated public assertions of innocence, by themselves, constitute a clear intent to obstruct the investigation being carried out by Special Prosecutor Mueller. When you add his characterization of the investigation as a witch hunt I think we have a slam dunk case of attempted intimidation and Mueller should proceed to an indictment of the President without even interviewing him.
Wine-Banks also cited Trumps tweets lamenting his appointment of Jeff Session as Attorney General as further evidence of improper intervention in the process aimed at removing him from office. Sessions has quite wisely opted to step out of the way of the semi-truck barreling toward his boss ultimate impeachment. Letting the FBI complete the operation it began in the Spring of 2016 shows that the AG is loyal to the law enforcement process and may save his hide when Trump goes down.
Wine-Banks defended the FBIs refusal to turn over documents that could be exculpatory, saying when youre running a long-term sting operation secrecy is paramount. The law explicitly allows law enforcement to lie to suspects in order to entrap them into making a mistake that can be used against them. Many murderers and rapists are behind bars as a result of such stratagems. Why shouldnt they be used against a man whose policies could cause the deaths of millions?
Meanwhile, in a bid to heal the damage done by the Trump Administration, his unsuccessful presidential opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton proposed a compromise that would restore the country to good governance. If the Special Prosecutor negates the November 2016 election and unseats Trump, I will pardon him for any and all crimes he may have committed. Such a blanket absolution would get him out of jail while simultaneously correcting an errant election result.

(ps: imho, the only good obstruction case Mueller could have is if, as widely suspected, his bowel is plugged up)
I admit I only read the titles of your satire posts. I have to avoid reading them lest I swallow the hook upon clicking without checking the poster ID 1st.
Just a quick thanks and wanted you to know that you keep me well abreast of the issues that the wheels are about to fly off of or about to spontaneously burst into flames and become the nothing burger that the issue deserves.
