Today’s news

nThe president lies to the American people. Sarah Huckabee stands in front of the country and lies every single day. I protected myself, because this is a White House where everybody lies.–Omarosa

I think now our argument is that when he exercises his power as president … then it becomes really really questionable if it becomes obstruction of justice.— Rudy Giuliani

I disagree; I believe everyone, even the President, is subject to our laws.

Giuliani later denied that Trump ever discussed easing up on an investigation of his former White House national security adviser, Michael Flynn, with former FBI director James Comey. But, he said, if Trump did, a statement telling Comey to “go easy on him [Flynn] is hardly obstruction.”

How would Giuliani possibly know what was said in a private meeting? Why did DJT ask others to leave the room? More lies, I expect. And why would DJT asking for Flynn to be given a pass not be obstruction?

I don’t know if what Omarosa wrote is accurate, but it is consistent with what we know about DJT–that he is a vile, rude person, and that he is a liar. It would be more of a surprise if he didn’t use than N word than if he did.

    Every time Giuliani opens his mouth he acknowledges more criminal activity by his boss. When the boss tells the prosecutor to “go easy” how is that NOT obstruction of justice? Rudy has forever tarnished his reputation. Which seems to be true of ALL the folks who associate themselves with trump.

    Painting President Trump as trustworthy looks like a daunting task. But how Trump might explain his behavior may not matter much, because there are many more intriguing questions–what have Flynn, Cohen and Gates told the prosecutors for example.
