Can You Obstruct a Fraud?

Moribund progressives with nothing better to do continue to push “The Russia issue with not facts behind it.

 

Apparently, they have already forgotten Hillary Clinton their erstwhile candidate for the Oval Office in 2016.

If there were tapes available, the image below covers her belief system.

 

For her part, Hilda is very busy with her blame tour, blaming everything possible but herself for being a woeful candidate and the reason for the Democrat meltdown in 2016.

Maybe Trump objected to the fraudulent notion, which Comey led the world to believe, that Trump was under investigation for collusion.

On March 30, 2017, by his own account, then-FBI Director James Comey told President Donald Trump that Trump himself was not under investigation, the third time he had given him that assurance.

In fact, Comey told Trump that he had just assured members of Congress that Trump was not a suspect under investigation.

Think about that.

 

This was fully six weeks after the then director’s Oval Office meeting with the president, during which Comey alleges that Trump told him, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go.”

Flynn, of course, is Michael Flynn, the close Trump campaign adviser and original Trump national-security adviser, whom Trump, with pained reluctance, had fired just the day before.

Interesting thing about that.

Most of the time, when public officials obstruct an investigation, there is a certain obsessiveness about it.

 

See the entire article below.

 

Because, in the usual situation, the official has been paid off, or the official is worried that the subject of the investigation will inculpate the official if the investigation is allowed to continue.

There is great pressure on the official to get the case shut down.

But not Trump, he of the notoriously short attention span. Trump was feeling remorse over Flynn.

What he told Comey, in substance, was that Flynn had been through enough.

A combat veteran who had served the country with distinction for over 30 years, and who had not done anything wrong by speaking with the Russian ambassador as part of the Trump transition, Flynn had just been cashiered in humiliating fashion.

That, obviously, is why he lobbied Comey on Flynn’s behalf. And as I have pointed out before, it was an exercise in weighing the merits of further investigation and prosecution that FBI agents and federal prosecutors do hundreds of times a day, throughout the country.

That matters because, as their superior and as the constitutional official whose power these subordinates exercise,

Trump has as much authority to do this weighing as did Comey, who worked for Trump, not the other way around.

The thing to notice, though, was that Trump never did it again.

After Comey’s description of this February 14 encounter, the word “Flynn” never appears again in Comey’s written testimony.

This appears to be the one and only time that Trump advocated on Flynn’s behalf.

If Trump was obstructing an investigation, he was awfully passive about it advocated on Flynn’s behalf.
