Like millions of Americans, I am following the Mueller witch hunt with a lot of interest and a lot of disgust.
The destruction of our justice system going unchallenged by 95% of our congress and legal scholars is angering many of us.
But the fact that none of these people being set up and charged need to relinquish their rights is a particularly astonishing thing to see.
All any of them needed to do to save their skin and their money
was say," I don't recall!"
Flynn, Papadopoulos, Manafort, Cohen and Corsi don’t have the FBI files that will allow for that defense.
Like millions of Americans, I don’t give a rat’s patootie.
That’s a good point. I wonder if those files were used to leverage the support of Mueller and Rosenstein for the Uranium One deal.
Not sure how long this style of defense is going to work for Hillary either. At some point in time....the old saying is...”those chickens will come home to roost”.
Of course. EVERYONE in government service at that time was compromised by the files.
Am I under arrest? Yes, then I want a lawyer. No. Goodbye.
Am I free to go? Yes. Goodbye. No. I want a lawyer.
Prosecutor: “Mr. Citizen, before we get into collusion with Russia, I’d like to ask you about November 22, the day the President was shot”
Joe Citizen: “Do you mean President Kennedy? I wasn’t born until 1969.”
Prosecutor: “We’ll let’s put that aside. Have you ever taken an illegal substance?”
Joe: “What has that got to do with...”
Prosecutor: “Isn’t it true that you’ve taken copier paper home from work hidden in your brief case.”
Joe: “I don’t see how...”
Prosecutor: “Please tell the jury how many times you have driven home after several cocktails, knowing full well that the legal limit is .08%”
Joe: “I don’t have to...”
Prosecutor: “... and didn’t you falsify your IRS return by stating that...”
Joe:” I want a lawyer”
Prosecutor: “Why do need a lawyer, Joe? Is it because you are NOT TELLING THE TRUTH?” - “What is it you are hiding from the people, Mr. Citizen? Do you know that deceiving a grand jury is a FELONY OFFENSE?”
Joe: “But, I’m not...”
Prosecutor: “ OH REALLY? Let me ask you if at anytime in your life, even as a child did you ever think about ...ever even consider harming someone of another race or gender? What about the president, or a member of government? -— THINK CAREFULLY, MR. CITIZEN - YOURE UNDER OATH!”
You have not been paying attention.
When they do that they are charged with "lying to the FBI".
No. They let that work for Clinton. They would not tolerate it from the unprotected. They would simply threaten business and family till one folded.
Moreover, Mueller is a willing tool of the Democrats. After Hillary lost, the impotent Democrats were cutoff from power.....
that drove them nuts....they were at their wit's end. So they connived to get Mueller to do the heavy lifting for them....
with our tax dollars.
Conniving Democrats' scheming never ceases ---they inveigled a public prosecutor to work for their political goals.
LAUGH BREAK--MUELLER SUCKS UP TO HILLARY: Mueller's team (cough) said Flynn provided "substantial" help to investigators
about "several ongoing investigations"......and (WOW) "firsthand information about the content and context of (cough) interactions between
the [Trump] transition team and Russian govt officials."
The swamp is about to turn into quicksand no ropes for the democrats.
