Link 8/9/2019 8 Civics Lesson
Can I please add one more argument against the rationale of the DOJ/OLC memo opinion that we can’t indict a criminal president?

The good thing that’s come from Donald Trump? He’s exposed the current Congressional Republicans for what they are.

“Impeaching” a witness is a legal term meaning the witness’s prior statement is used against them to prove they were telling the truth on an earlier occasion

prosecutors can never use someone’s decision to invoke their 5th Amendment right against selfincrimination for legal or tactical advantage.

The fugitive thwarts his prosecution by fleeing. The DOJ thwarts the president’s prosecution by taking a “do not prosecute” position that is unsupported in the law.

I sure hope there’s a plan in place. I hope that the counter-intel investigation will result in Trump being ousted from office. But here’s the problem: every day, our politicians are traumatizing We The People, in real, concrete &, I fear, lasting ways…

So with all this nefarious/criminal conduct why has the SDNY not brought more charges?

Yesterday’s Stone hearing was a disappointment. But, there is some positive.

Stone was laughing at the judge, the prosecutors and the criminal justice system. It remains to be seen who will have the last laugh . . .

Link 7/11/2019 5 Admin Outrages
this represents the first actual constitutional crisis - the Supreme Court said Trump can’t do something, Trump says to SCOTUS, “screw you, I’m doing it anyway.” so someone whispered to him he'd lose -dbciii

There are so many issues involved in deciding whether to work with a defendant as a cooperating witness.

I know how things used to work - how they are supposed to work - at DOJ.

Lindsey Graham reportedly served as both a defense attorney & a prosecutor as an Air Force JAG in the ‘80s. Yet he blindly, uncritically accepts Trump’s “denial” of raping E. Jean Carroll

I’m with you, JoAnn. The state of our judiciary is strong.

So today, de facto impeachment hearings open with the testimony of John Dean, White House Counsel for Nixon during Watergate.

Link 5/30/2019 5 Impeachment
let’s assume federal prosecutors indict the president after he leaves office for crimes that were committed more than 5 years before the indictment is handed down . . . OUCH! I guess the takeaway is like with Al Capone, it may be hard to find something to put him away :( -dbciii

If state court prosecutors have sufficient evidence to prove Trump committed crimes that violate state law, then the state prosecutors can and should indict him

I would move toward using the inherent contempt powers of Congress to arrest them.

As a former career prosecutor, including 6 years as an Army JAG, this makes me sick

Link 5/16/2019 14 Legal cases
Is there any reason for hope? I suggest there is. I want to return to Tuesday’s court hearing. Trump’s lawyer argued that Congress cannot issue subpoenas to investigate presidential violations of the law. Judge Mehta plainly and inarguably disagreed with that position. . .

Can I please make one observation about Lindsey Graham’s absurd contention that we should start investigating Obama-era DOJ officials for hating Trump and trying to get Hillary Clinton elected?

Link 5/7/2019 11
This is an emotionally charged issue: Trump pardons the former soldier who was convicted of murdering an Iraqi prisoner.

Link 5/6/2019 9
Let’s talk about Barr’s answer (ok, non-answer) to Sen. Kamala Harris’s question about whether Trump or anyone at the White House asked or suggested that he should open a criminal investigation on anyone.

Link 4/25/2019 7 Legal cases
The first two options to deal with Trump’s obstructionist conduct of declaring that administration members will refuse to comply with all Congressional subpoenas are ineffectual.

Link 4/19/2019 10 Mueller Report
Mueller said that because he’s not permitted to indict a sitting president he simply laid out all the evidence proving Trump obstructed justice without announcing a prosecutorial decision. To be clear, this was not his choice, it was required because the DOJ/OLC memo says you can’t indict a sitting president
