Combative Bully Trump

Behavior is a sign of guilt. As anticipated, Donald Trump is not taking the Comey testimony lying down. His attorney plans to file a complaint about Comey's leaking his memos to the press. Alternatively, Trump could have breathed a momentary sigh of relief and moved on. That is not his style.

It appears to a common person that Trump attempted to intimidate and bully Comey while "hoping" that he would drop charges against Michael Flynn while "lifting the cloud" from his White House. "Hoping" and "lifting" are expressions of will and action by the President who is long on words and short on appreciating their meaning and intent.

Americans have a very bad President who by anyone's ears knows that he is an incessant liar.

Furthermore, Attorney General Jeff Sessions remains in office and on the hot seat for lying and perjuring. He has no business being in government and should be fired or impeached. He most surely will be prosecuted.

Having protected and covered for Flynn and Sessions constitute Misprision of Fraud as this independent journalist understands the law. Trump is covering for Jared Kushner and others too.

The Special Prosecutor is on his case.

President Trump is not above the law, nor is his ignorance of the law an excuse.


A dangerous man lives in The White House.

  1. The Trump House is corrupted along with his executive branch and appointees.

    Comey’s opening statement for his testimony tomorrow he writes that he told Sessions “to prevent any future direct communication between the President and me” and he didn’t reply.

    After the meeting in the Oval, during which Trump asked Comey to drop the Flynn investigation, Comey discussed his notes with Senior FBI leadership, and he notes, “We also concluded that, given that it was a one -on-one conversation, there was nothing available to corroborate my account. We concluded it made little sense to report it to Attorney General Sessions, who we expected would likely recuse himself from involvement in Russia.”

    Comey will say (my bold), “Shortly afterwards, I spoke with Attorney General Sessions in person to pass along the President’s concerns about leaks. I took the opportunity to implore the Attorney General to prevent any future direct communication between the President and me.”

    “I told the AG that what had just happened – him being asked to leave while the FBI Director, who reports to the AG, remained behind – was inappropriate and should never happen. He did not reply. For the reasons discussed above, I did not mention that the President broached the FBI’s potential investigation of General Flynn.”

    Add senior FBI leadership to the roster of Comey witnesses and if government were operating as it is supposed to, Jeff Sessions should be under investigation.

    While Sessions eventually recused himself from the investigation, he is at the very least a witness to the President demanding to see the FBI Director alone, and when the FBI Director told Sessions that this was inappropriate (which Sessions already knows), Sessions said nothing.

  2. Comey made it clear, without using the words “obstruction of justice,” that he personally believes it occurred. He said he felt Trump was ordering him to drop investigations, not merely expressing a “hope,” and that he was fired because of the Russia inquiry. When Senator John Cornyn asked Comey why he didn’t seek a special counsel for the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server, Comey said he “decided that would be an unfair thing to do because I knew there was no case there…. Calling for the appointment of special counsel would be brutally unfair because it would send the message there’s something here.” Given that Comey had just proclaimed he wanted a special counsel to look into his interactions with Trump, you don’t need a legal-math whiz to put two and two together.
