Can Trump Ever ‘Put up, or Shut up?’
Donald Trump’s words and actions are enough to embarrass all 44 presidents that came before him, even Nixon. Rudy Giuliani is a disgrace to every lawyer and prosecutor in the land. And Sarah Huckabee Sanders is complicit with an array of lies and misinformation that proves that she is part of a major coverup. There I said it.
Most smart people in America know that our President lies. Experts in the legal field have made it very clear that the diversionary tactics of the Donald are not going to hold up in a court of law. It seems that these goofballs have been lying about everything, including what the law says about collusion and conspiracy: “If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.” This is 18 U.S. Code § 371 – Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud United States. Most judges would be hard pressed to say that any conspiring by someone in the Trump campaign to “affect” the outcome of a national election would not be a crime.
And while we are at this legal language part, let’s look at 18 U.S. Code § 1503 – Influencing or injuring officer or juror generally, which was what Trump did yesterday (8-1-2018) with this tweet to the Attorney General. The statue states clearly: “Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, endeavors to influence, intimidate, or impede any grand or petit juror, or officer in or of any court of the United States, or officer who may be serving at any examination or other proceeding before any United States magistrate judge or other committing magistrate, in the discharge of his duty, or injures any such grand or petit juror in his person or property on account of any verdict or indictment assented to by him, or on account of his being or having been such juror, or injures any such officer, magistrate judge, or other committing magistrate in his person or property on account of the performance of his official duties, or corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be punished as provided in subsection.” The bottom line is you can get ten years in jail for breaking this law.
What Trump tweeted yesterday might not make his base nervous, but a skilled prosecutor might conclude that our Great Orange Leader is getting closer and closer to breaking the law, “This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”
The mentally limited Giuliani said that it wasn’t an order, because Trump used the word “should” rather than “must.” Rudy didn’t reference the fact that the President did use the words, “right now” which could be interpreted as more of an order. If I said you should do something right now, the “right now” mean NOW!
Sarah Sanders claimed that it was NOT an order, but just the President expressing his opinion. Well, there you have it folks, we must have someone tell us when something Donald Trump says is “just an opinion” — like assholes, everyone has one — or Trump’s official statements. This one certainly did smell like a threat.
When Sanders says, “The president has made his views very clear” we all must just wonder what part of oxymoronic does she not get here? Giuliani, a New Yorker, like Trump, thinks he can slap the Special Counsel with the old poker yarn, “Put up or shut up” but would he ever say that to a judge? The disrespect for law and order by this former Mayor is agonizing. He’s become such a bottom-feeder, so much for legacy.
The latest headline on CNN says that TRUMP IS IN A DARK SPACE. And he should be. He cannot keep asking for this investigation to conclude, without comprehending that it cannot end without him sitting down with Robert Mueller. Could Trump be that stupid not to understand that he is NOT ABOVE THE LAW?
This is what we have, a businessman who thinks he can manipulate the press and opinions, intimidate judges and officers of the court and figure out loopholes around whatever gets in his way. When he says that America is tired of this investigation, he is correct. But be careful about what you ask for Mr. President. The end of this investigation could be the end of your presidential fantasy. All reality TV shows end, eventually.
