Hundreds of Federal Prosecutors Sign Petition Saying that Trump Performed Multiple Felonious Acts Obstructing Justice

This is hot. Hundreds of federal prosecutors, both Republicans and Democrats, say that Trump’s behavior would merit multiple felony indictments for obstruction of justice — except for a single DOJ memo that claims that a sitting president can’t be indicted.

You can read their statement, and their names, at this link.

“Each of us believes that the conduct of President Trump described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report would, in the case of any other person not covered by the Office of Legal Counsel policy against indicting a sitting President, result in multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice.

The Mueller report describes several acts that satisfy all of the elements for an obstruction charge: conduct that obstructed or attempted to obstruct the truth-finding process, as to which the evidence of corrupt intent and connection to pending proceedings is overwhelming. These include:

· The President’s efforts to fire Mueller and to falsify evidence about that effort;

· The President’s efforts to limit the scope of Mueller’s investigation to exclude his conduct; and

· The President’s efforts to prevent witnesses from cooperating with investigators probing him and his campaign.”

They then explain, in clear detail, exactly what those accusations mean.

Unfortunately, I don’t believe there are many (any?) Republican politicians in Congress with the guts to vote against this unsavory menace to any pretense of democratic rule.

  2. And Trump and the POT, Party of Trump, he leads are setting the stage for a Constitutional Crises in 2020. He signaled that’s what he plans to do when he tweeted that he should have his presidency increased by two years from four to six, because of the “Witch Hunt” Russian investigation (that proved Russia meddled in the 2016 election).

    Pelosi has also said she fears that if Trump losses in 2020, he will refuse to step down and allow the transition from his presidency to a new one to take place peacefully.

    Trump already called for a revolution when he said the police, the military, and gangster bikers would rebel if he was impeached. Of course, he didn’t say “rebel”. He suggested, “it could get very bad if military, police, biker supporters play tough.”

    This one blurb out of Trump’s mouth should have been enough to compel Republicans to join with Democrats and impeach Trump.
