Here’s an indicator of how much legal trouble Trump faces

investigators-2

 

One thing we can say for sure about Donald Trump’s weird obsession with tweeting is that it helps entertain us while we’re all waiting for charges to emanate from the  special Justice Department investigation of Russian meddling in last year’s election.

Nobody knows for sure if any criminal charges will arise from the probe, but there’s at least one indicator that some pretty big fish will get scooped up in the government’s net.

Some talking head on television whose identity escaped my attention recently noted that more than a few talented lawyers have shown an eagerness to take a break from their lucrative careers to work on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. The theory is that these hotshots see a strong likelihood that major players in the Trump campaign will be indicted. If that were not the case, according to the speculation, only second-rate barristers would be jumping at the chance to work on the matter.

Of course, this may all be pure piffle. But Trump himself seems to be greatly worried about the investigation. Sources in the White House have told reporters that the president is obsessed with the Russia issue.

On the other hand, Trump is not always an easy read. He swings and he sways several times a day. There’s no saying what he might do if he feels that the long arm of the law is reaching for him.

Then, too, The Donald’s standing in the polls does him little or no good. He’s already set a record for the lowest approval rating of any president in the first five months in office.

Trump’s latest strategy is to blame everything on the media.  He should be reminded that Richard Nixon rode that hobby-horse during the Watergate scandal — to no avail in the end.

One thing is for sure with regard to the Mueller investigation: It will not end anytime soon. Other than that, the final results are anybody’s guess. But the smart money seems to expect that the denouement will be a sensational affair.

I, for one, can hardly await. The prospects make these early months of the Trump presidency more tolerable than would otherwise be the case.

    You mean like this big fish?

    Even Snopes says its true. I don’t claim to know what took place with any supposed officials in the Trump team and Russia, but if I were being investigated, I’d sure have my lawyers point to this event as a reason to disqualify any investigation. And let’s not forget, this is just one event that caught of an open mic. What else was discussed “deep state” (that’s for you Shawn) style that we don’t know about?

    Obviously, this was back when Russia was our partner in eliminating the ISIS threat.. Before the dems/liberals needed a boogeyman to inflame their base. Obama, Michelle, Hillary, the DNC, and Black Lives Matter, all created these divisions in the last two years before the 2016 elections, for the sole purpose of winning the election. They were willing to destroy the civility of our nation, that very civility that elected Obama, just to keep power. And you all want to parade around as somehow being morally and ethically superior? ROT in hell you phonies and the liberal anti-Trump media too.

    Robert you are an easy mark for all the outrageous far right wing propaganda.

    Can’t you do better than that Mr King of the one liners?

    So let me get this straight, if the dem president colludes with the Russians, its just normal diplomacy, but if their opposition is suspected of it, it’s an affront to democracy and the American way and reason for impeachment…

    Thank you steverino for showing us how liberals think. As Patrick says at this time in the conversation, queue to the sound of crickets.

    Trump being indicted for Russia ties is about as likely as a Bernie Sanders having an affair with Sarah Palin.

    Im trying to understand how this is damaging to Trump or Trump jr. Are they saying that the Hillary campaign wouldnt have been titilated and attended such a meeting if the situation was reversed? Just how was any collusion implemented or acted upon and who wouldn’t follow up on such an offer? Its what he would have done with such information, if it was provided, that would matter. Then he would have had to notify the FBI if such info was provided…but it wasnt and the conversation turned to adoptions.

    I dont see whats incriminating here. Please, someone on this board, put some left wing spin on this for me. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2017/07/09/donald-trump-jr-s-stunningly-incriminating-statement-to-the-new-york-times/?utm_term=.02967e2dc1f0

      Maybe that “snotty Brad” guy, you know, Patrick’s bud from the telecommunications industry, could be the spinmeister and show me how those who claim to hold the key to sane evaluations will view this latest development in TrumpRussia gate saga. Enlighten me Brad.

    Score one for the buffoon in chief for proposing a cyber security task force with Vladimir to rid the world of those pesky hackers. What’s next a consortium with Kim Jong-un to discuss nuclear strategic planning.

    Although politicians usually talk with foreign dignitaries as a matter of business, I wonder why Sessions isnt being treated as a criminal with no trial and all of his wealth isnt being acquired through asset forfeiture, that only needs the skimpiest of reason to be invoked?

    Sessions, earlier this week, told law enforcement officials he intends to resurrect the asset forfeiture program that Obama put some brakes on due to abuse by law enforcement agencies. Or does that kind of law only apply to the little people without political connections?

    Shouldn’t asset forfeiture also apply to those on top too? Just wondering?
