Former Judge Andrew Napolitano, legal analyst for Fox News, said that yesterday the people of America learned without question that federal prosecutors in New York have clear evidence that President Donald Trump committed a felony.
The newly-elected Attorney General for the State of New York has some big plans. And they involve the President of the United States, his children, and his business.
After being elected on November 6, Letitia James promised she would begin large-scale investigations of “President Donald Trump, his family and anyone in his circle who may have violated the law.” She said the investigations and prosecutions of Trump criminal conduct would be a top priority when she starts her new job next month.
Fox News’ senior legal analyst Andrew Napolitano said Monday that President Donald Trump may be charged with three separate crimes. He also said that Trump could be indicted while still the president.
For some unknown reason it took a Swiss newspaper to discover how Tucker Carlson really feels about Donald Trump.
In an interview with “Die Weltwoche,” Switzerland’s leading German-language weekly, the Fox News host was very blunt: “I don’t think he’s capable,” he said.
A conservative newspaper, The Washington Examiner, published an article today citing legal experts who discussed the topic of Donald Trump’s impeachment.
Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal attorney, has reached a new plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller.
According to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Cohen is expected to plead guilty to lying to congressional committees.
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston is now reporting that an international human rights organization has requested that prosecutors in The Netherlands open a criminal investigation into several multi-billion dollar money laundering schemes that were facilitated by Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and a law firm where he used to work.
Even though the statutes of limitations may have expired for criminal tax fraud (because the events took place so long ago) that would not be the case for the imposition of civil tax penalties. Which would mean Trump and his family may be on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars. It is not far-fetched to think that this could possibly wipe out his entire net worth and bankrupt him.
- He undermined the credibility of law enforcement officials, such as the FBI and the Department of Justice, and
- He furthered the idea that there is a conspiracy being run to harm Donald Trump and his associates, who have done nothing wrong.
During an interview with Dershowitz on Fox & Friends, host Brian Kilmeade said that President Donald Trump is being targeted and attacked unfairly, as shown by the many investigations into his campaign, into his business dealings, and into his charitable foundation.
Donald Trump operates like a typical mob boss, in charge of an organized crime family. As events of the past week have shown, he surrounds himself with sleazy characters who live in the shadows and commit many different types of crimes, most of which they are never held accountable for.
In the course of Michael Cohen’s guilty plea this week, the president’s former lawyer admitted his part in a high-level cover-up, including the use of hush money, designed to influence the 2016 election. And he accused President Trump of directing this violation.
There are two big unanswered questions concerning yesterday’s Michael Cohen plea deal:
- Is Cohen a cooperating witness who has “flipped” on Trump and will be working with prosecutors to bring down the president?
- Since Trump has not been indicted as a co-conspirator, when might that change and when might the president actually be indicted?
It appears that the answer to #1 is “yes” which leaves as the real mystery the second question.
Most of the mainstream media commentators who are talking about this right now seem to be of the opinion that Trump will not be indicted either by Mueller or by the team of Justice Department prosecutors in the Southern District of New York (where Cohen pleaded guilty). And they may be right, because there is very little precedent to go on concerning presidential indictments, and Justice Department guidelines seem to prohibit it.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, threw cold water on Trump's witch hunt claims by saying that there is evidence of a Trump/Russia criminal conspiracy.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo this week has made a criminal case against Donald Trump much more likely.
First, on Wednesday, we reported that:
“New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday opened the door to a possible criminal case against the Donald J. Trump Foundation with a statement from his counsel that Cuomo was prepared to provide a criminal referral if asked.”
One thing that was accomplished with Rod Rosenstein’s announcement of 12 new indictments against Russians on Friday was to provide proof once again that Roger Stone has a long history of lying.
To go through all of the many provable instances of Stone’s lying would take too much time, but there are a few key examples that show Stone has been lying from the beginning about his personal involvement in the hacking of Hillary Clinton and DNC emails and about his relationship with the Russian government.
Former Donald Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen shook up the White House and most of America with his revelations in an ABC News interview over the weekend that he was no longer loyal to the president and that he was likely to cooperate with federal investigators in order to protect his family.
Editor’s Note 11:30 Am: There were two titles on this article, one was incorrect (titles are filled in at the top and bottom of a post, the bottom is filled in automatically and doesn’t update with changes but it is the one used on some social media). The Senators said Trump could be, not is, guilty of obstruction of justice. This has been corrected.
In April we reported that Alan Dershowitz believes the president is above the law. On Tuesday night the former Harvard law professor went on CNN to give another ridiculous opinion, saying that he believes it is legal for the president to obstruct justice.
