He told the Russian officials that by firing Comey he took the pressure off both him and Russia. What part of that does not register with you?

You just tried to equate frequency with validity so you might be wrong on that.

I don't think anyone is denying the real world effect that news can have. When you point at the news as reasoning for something being a relevant issue, that's where the illogic strikes (this carries on to my point that (potentially beliebing) heads exploding doesn't equal real world impact).

As I said, Trump needs to sort out his own house. The guy is putting out some very weird and mixed messages. But the simple fact is that the investigation doesn't disappear because he fired some guy you wanted gone a while ago.

That makes me wonder: are unsuccessful/never would be successful obstructions of justice illegal?

Now for a bout of that fun legal research to see if that was a dumb question or not.

That was quite a question there, dumbass. However, the legal definition opens up two more questions.

"A: Obstruction may consist of any attempt to hinder the discovery, apprehension, conviction or punishment of anyone who has committed a crime. The acts by which justice is obstructed may include bribery, murder, intimidation, and the use of physical force against witnesses, law enforcement officers or court officials."

So did Trump bribe, murder, intimidate, or use physical force against Comey or do anything that might be defined as such? And is the first definition that popped into google incomplete?

It's not an obstruction of justice unless he's stopping/impeding the investigation. I don't see any proof that he's done that.

See the new post. Attempts count.

And the complete definition
Quote:

corruptly or by threats of force, or by threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice

Bull****

The president can't fire someone to thwart an investigation into himself. That's called obstruction of justice and impeding a federal investigation and those are serious felonies.

It's was also a crime to try to interfere with the investigation into Flynn.

There's probably a dead Israeli field agent due to his ignorant braggart blabber mouth. That's impeachable and puts America at risk for terrorism now that it's proven our head of state can't be trusted with foreign intelligence.

He also obviously has some kind of deal going on with Russia. He's indebted to them for providing currency to him and his family while his company was cash poor. Plus, he encouraged them to release Hillary's email which is inviting a hostile foreign power to manipulate our democratic process and that's treason, I think it's still punishable by death. He might get impeached or he might simply get arrested.

Hell, even profiting off of his foreign investments while president is illegal. That his criminal behavior has thus far been ignored doesn't mean it his ass isn't grass any day now.

You do understand he appoints the next head, right?

Yo ma dude, don't do your job.

He's THAT corrupt.
