Little Kremlin-on-the-Potomac: Witness Tampering?

Prznint Comrade Trump hates this picture. Tell your friends to stop using this picture.

This tweet last night caught my eye:

So I was not surprised that the Axios morning email thingie tells us:

The New York Times scoop, by Michael Schmidt and Maggie Haberman, says Mueller “has learned of two conversations in recent months in which President Trump asked key witnesses about matters they discussed with investigators”:

  • “[T]he president told an aide that the White House counsel, Donald F. McGahn II, should issue a statement denying a New York Times article in January” about Trump asking McGahn to fire Mueller.
  • So good: “McGahn … had to remind the president that he had indeed asked Mr. McGahn to see that Mr. Mueller was dismissed.”
  • “In the other episode, Mr. Trump asked his former chief of staff, Reince Priebus, how his interview had gone with the special counsel’s investigators and whether they had been ‘nice.'”

Here’s the line from the story that I think is really important and rings as true:  “The president has ignored his lawyers’ advice to avoid doing anything publicly or privately that could create the appearance of interfering with the investigation.”

I don’t know the technicalities of Witness Tampering, but if this isn’t it, it must be close. You can smell the flop sweat from here.

    There is a crime ongoing. Lady Liberty has been beat-down, gang-raped, and her valuables handed out as rewards to fellow members of the gang in exchange for protection from the crimes committed. Scarcely a man can honestly claim the crime was not committed. A large number on the right will never admit to it because of the financial, career, ideological benefits they have gained from the crime, and the fear they may have to give them back. An even larger number are unwilling to fess up simply because the crime has been in the planning for decades and is still ongoing for coming up on two years, with another two years scheduled right there on the board. Expressing outrage at this late date implies deep complicity, profound blindness, or mind-bending stupidity. None of which look good on a resume.

    There is also the fact that any substantial betrayal of these sociopaths will long be remembered and will exclude you from the next scam to plunder the nation.

    Given all that, the question needs to be asked: Of those with sufficient money and/or power to matter, can you get enough people to care to expose, embarrass, sanction, or prosecute the criminals for what they are and what they have done?

      You are far, far more optimistic than I am. Pretty much half the government is complicit in this crime, and they have a large web of support. (the only opinion poll that ever counts comes on election night)

  2. As Mrs Desertrat put it last night…”It’s lawyers all the way down.” McGahn, at the least is competent, and knows his only chance to avoid wearing orange is to cooperate with the Special Prosecutor. There’s ample evidence to show everyone what happens when you try to game Mueller. [cough]Rick Gates[/cough].

    I still find it hard to believe they haven’t trotted out the old ‘criminalization of politics’ routine.
