Donald Trump May Be Open to Obstruction of Justice Charge

It looks as though one of Donald Trump’s infamous tweets may have finally gotten him into real hot water. On Meet the Press, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that Donald Trump may have left himself open to a charge of obstruction of justice, based on a tweet he made on Friday. Sen. Feinstein is the chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, which is investigating Donald Trump for possible collusion with the Russians for the 2016 presidential election. Many people, including myself, think that Donald Trump is as guilty as sin of colluding with the Russians to help you win the 2016 presidential election.

Obstruction of justice, especially in this case involving a president of the United States, is a very serious charge. Donald Trump should be just as much open to a charge as your average citizen. Even though he may think so, Donald Trump is not above the law. No one is!

Here is the text of the infamous tweet that may well lead to the undoing of Donald Trump:

I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 2, 2017

This begs the question if Donald Trump knew that Michael Flynn had lied wouldn’t his attempts to shut down the investigation by the FBI constitute obstruction of justice? To me, the answer is a very simple “yes”. Donald Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice and should be charged just like your average citizen. His office should not make him exempt from anything.

I am very glad to see that the house of cards that Donald Trump lives in is starting to collapse. It is very satisfying to see this racist/sexist getting closer to the rewards for his criminal behavior. As far as I’m concerned, Donald Trump is nothing more than a self-entitled, overprivileged, conceited silver spoon baby.

One thing that always has struck me about Donald Trump is his arrogance. He also has an extremely warped sense of this own importance, not to mention the scope of his powers. Donald Trump seems to think that just because he is president of the United States, he has limitless powers and can do anything he wants. He acts as though he has never taken a civics lesson in this life. Maybe, he will start to get some idea of his limits when they impeach him.

Hopefully, we will all get a chance to see them being spanked for his bad behavior.

Trump Is Lying About Not Having Business Ventures in Russia

The Curious Link Between Trump’s Moscow Tower Deal and a Ukraine “Peace Plan” – Mother Jones

Trump Is Lying About Not Having Business Ventures in Russia

It’s very obvious that when Donald Trump says he has no business ventures in Russia, he is lying. In fact, a recent story about two of his friends trying to negotiate building a Trump Tower in Moscow, heavily implies that the president is probably about his business ventures in Russia.

It has come to light that Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer, and Felix Sater, who bills himself as one of Trump’s “senior advisors” offered to work out a deal that would lift economic sanctions against Russia in exchange for both financing and permits to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Obviously, someone gave them the “green light” to go forward with such a deal that would or else these two big businessmen would not risk their credibility in offering such a deal. It seems very unlikely that either of the two would take that type of risk, without someone giving them the “go ahead”. Most probably, that person who gave the “go ahead” is president Donald Trump. Who would benefit more from the branding of his name other than the man who says he has no business ventures in Russia?

The so-called deal was worked out by a Ukrainian lawmaker with pro-Kremlin views, Andriy Artemenko. According to Artemenko, who spoke with the New York Times, aides to Russian President Vladimir Putin encouraged Artemenko to pursue this plan. He then presented the plan to both Cohen and Sater. In return, they took this plan to Michael Flynn who approved it, although it is unclear whether Donald Trump had any knowledge about this deal.

In my opinion, this is about as close to a “smoking gun” linking the Trump campaign to Russia as one can get. As far as I’m concerned, this pretty much says that when Donald Trump says he has no business ventures in Russia, he is lying through his teeth. He has absolutely no credibility with me and many others. It is very obvious that the president does have business ventures in Russia.

Hopefully, this entire mess will come to light under either the investigation of Robert Mueller or the Senate intelligence committee. Either way, the hole that Donald Trump is burying himself in is getting deeper by the minute.
