GRAND JURY JUGERNAUT

Will Trump Do the Right Thing?

No man is above the law. Those who know history will recollect that it was Teddy Roosevelt who made that sentiment famous. “No man is above the law and no man is below it: nor do we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it.” Theodore Roosevelt’s face is on Mt. Rushmore. People who know Donald Trump personally, claim that one of the Donald’s fantasies is to have his face on the mountain along with Teddy, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. May God pull the hammers from any men or women who would attempt to place Trump’s mug on that sacred edifice.

Things are getting interesting in Washington, DC. The Trump legal team has used their old tactic of releasing information they thought would help their client. Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s many attorneys, took notes during the discussions with the Special Counsel’s team and constructed 49 questions, all in a row, that would likely be posed to the President by the Special Counsel. It was all the President’s men who released these inquiries, not some dark, mysterious, deep-state operative out to get the sitting president.

Supreme Court of the United States of America

This is a pattern. It’s like using the Republicans on the House Committee to release a bogus version of the investigation with a conclusion of no collusion by the Trump election campaign. And then, prompted by the inner circle at the White House, the Republicans pushed to get the James Comey memos which he put on file after each meeting with Trump. Within five minutes, those memos were leaked to the press. Trump felt the memos were proof that he did nothing wrong, but they brought the Comey matter to the front page, again. The memos helped the former Director of the FBI sell books but they did absolutely nothing for Trump’s case.

Trump thinks telling the truth is a trap. He even posted this on Twitter today (5-2-2018), “There was no Collusion (it is a Hoax) and there is no Obstruction of Justice (that is a setup & trap). What there is is Negotiations going on with North Korea over Nuclear War, Negotiations going on with China over Trade Deficits, Negotiations on NAFTA, and much more. Witch Hunt!” (We always copy and paste Mr. Trump’s tweets. Sorry about the mistakes.)

Yes, Mr. President, it is a set-up and a trap where people will ask you a few questions about what you knew and when you knew it. Trump was eager to bring his presidential opponent before a court of law and lock her up. He stated that he thinks reporters should be put in jail to force reveal of their sources. And now he is faced with a potential subpoena to appear before a grand jury. What will he do?

If he “pleads the fifth,” it will be tantamount to admitting he did something wrong. We know what Trump has said about those who use their Fifth Amendment right to not incriminate themselves. Trump is on video at an Iowa campaign rally saying, “The mob takes the Fifth. If you’re innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?”

Donald Trump may get two accolades before he leaves office, worst president and worst legal client, ever. And his legal team must consider this. If Donald Trump appears before a grand jury, he will have no lawyers sitting next to him. And that’s when this “no man is above the law” thing would kick in. And we are sure that if this happens, as it did in the Clinton scandals, the Supreme Court will be asked to decide whether the President of the United States is above the law. This would be a perfect “Constitutional Crisis” which is generally not good for the democratic process.

If the Justices were to decide that a sitting President didn’t have to answer for anything they’ve done before being elected, during their campaign or while in office, it would send a violent bolt through the foundation of our law. The shift would codify the thinking that the President of this country is different and immune to the laws of the land. Isn’t that what we fought against in the Revolutionary War? Do we really want a king in the White House? To borrow a term that Trump likes to use, it would be disgraceful if the Supreme Court said that a president doesn’t have to testify in court. No man is above the law.

Donald Trump is not a man of law. He is a shallow person of whim and self-interest, the most corrupt president in the history of the United States. We will all learn the truth soon, but will we as Americans be able to deal with it?

ABSOLUTELY NO COLLUSION

Trump’s Redundant Refrain

There is a theory that if you say something over and over, you tend to believe that it’s true, even if it isn’t. On the other side of that coin, there are many who believe that people never change. While the microanalysis of Donald Trump is taking place, there are those people who are watching for some sign of change, a pivot of sorts.

During the bi-partisan meeting the other day in the Cabinet room of the White House, the naïve newscasters and junk journalists were fooled once again with the President’s confusing presentation. At times Trump seemed to sound a bit Democrat, even saying that a separate “clean” DACA bill could happen. After push back from Republican attendees, Trump followed up with a tweet to “clarify” his positions. This dingbat cannot present a clear and focused message outside of a slogan.

And in a press conference yesterday (1-10-2018), our Great Orange Leader said there was “absolutely no collusion” seven times in ninety-seconds. He also redefined the suggestion of sitting down with Robert Mueller to talk about Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election. He seems to think the investigation is coming to an end and if he just keeps repeating his mantra, “absolutely no collusion” that this “hoax” or “witch hunt” will go away. He has purchased the upper class with his tax cut and soaring stock market, while removing the pillars of freedom that have made America great.

In a recent poll conducted by Morning Consult + Politico, 48% of the 1,988 respondents said Trump being exonerated by the end of 2018 was either very or somewhat likely. 37% saw that outcome as being not too likely or not at all likely and under one-third foresaw Trump leaving office before 2018 ends. So, it seems as if the trashing of Mueller’s team by the Alt-Right and Conservative media is working. The Republican Congress is also complicit in this muddying of the waters. But, as we all learned, statistics derived from samples the size of a large Baptist church don’t always get it right. Trump sees only positive numbers and discounts anything that shows him failing. So, why even undertake research on this dense humanoid with a bad combover?

The Donald is focused on a narrow strip of land, much like the kind on which his castle in Florida is built, to defend himself in the matter of the Russian investigation. There seems to be something hardwired in his mind that says all and any investigation into a foreign government lessens his win in the election. He cannot intellectually separate influence peddling and mass social media interference in our electoral process with his own self-image and legitimacy as a President. He and his Justice Department have done nothing to assure us it won’t happen again. He’s foolish to think that Russia will always be on his side. They could turn on him in a New York minute.

Just as Nixon kept saying, “I am not a crook,” Trump truly believes if he keeps saying the words, “absolutely no collusion,” that all this will go away. His top shelf lawyers encourage this illusion to keep him from losing it on camera and saying something that will surely sink his ship. Trump will get the accolade of being the worst client ever.

From this Website we find an entry written by Gerald N. Hill and Kathleen T. Hill saying that collusion in business happens when two persons (or business entities through their officers or other employees) enter into a deceitful agreement, usually secret, to defraud and/or gain an unfair advantage over a third party, competitors, consumers or those with whom they are negotiating.

President Trump’s claim that no one in his campaign talked to any Russians is untrue. When he says there was no collusion, he must have forgotten the meeting between his campaign manager, his son-in-law and his son Don Jr. Until the press revealed the meeting at Trump Tower, it was secret and there was an opportunity to game an advantage over a competitor. And, to make this much richer, it was with agents of a foreign nation. Was there a deceitful agreement? To use Trump’s own words, “Time will tell.”

He also raised the specter of changing the libel laws so that he could stop what he calls false and libelous statements from writers and broadcasters who “sit there and smile while money is pouring in their bank accounts.” Does this pumpkin understand that the first person to get attacked would be Donald Trump himself? He says libelous untruths that lower stock prices for a company he attacks. Imagine if the legal system punished someone who was “exercising” their First Amendment rights? The British system might be good for a country with a Queen, but doesn’t work in a Country without a King.

Notice Donald Trump’s body language when someone disagrees with him or he feels uptight. He crosses his arms across his chest, giving himself a giant hug so he can feel confident. He uses the phrase, “believe me” more than someone who is sure of what they are saying. The implication of the opposite drips from so many of the things he says and history will record the phrase, “absolutely no collusion,” as one of his more blatant lies.

We all want the investigations into Trump and his court of enablers and family members to end as soon as possible. Americans have no patience and we want to know that our country is in the hands of a responsible adult. We cannot trust Republicans, they are biased bastards. The Democrats are focused on repaying the Republicans for what they did to Obama and taking a page out of the Newt Gingrich playbook. Sad, but true.

The idea that our President can govern with any kind of fair and just comprehension of anyone outside of his base is lost. Mike Pence would not make a good president, but he would be controllable by a logical Congress. Collusion is a funny word. Trump is not a funny human being. He’s just a giant mistake.
