Trump says Special Counsel Mueller has conflicts


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Friday said he will likely strip Justice Department official Bruce Ohr of his security clearance and said Special Counsel Robert Mueller, leading the investigation into possible Russian meddling in the presidential election that Trump won, faces conflicts that undermine the credibility of his probe.

Trump is going to force a constitutional crisis. He's more arrogant than Nixon. And Trump doesn't give a shiit about the United States.

Trump suspects he’ll revoke Ohr’s clearance ‘very quickly

 

“What it shows is that the president is fixated on the Russia investigation, he’s angry about it, and he wants to do everything he can to discourage or slow down the investigation,” he said.

Mueller and his team have been looking at Trump’s public statements and tweets as they investigate whether the president could be guilty of obstruction.

“I don’t think it advances the criminal obstruction case, but I think it’s factually relevant,” said Mark Zaid, a national security attorney. “I think it shows the state of mind and intent to interfere or impede any unfavorable discussion of his potential connection to Russia.”

Ohr should have been fired.    As part of DoJ he had no reason to be dealing with Steele and his fake dossier, and giving that information to the FBI (who had already fired Steele).

Of course they did. 

They inserted spies into the campaign.   

They hired Steele and failed to verify his salacious allegations.

They fired Steele, then continued using his data, in violation of their own rules. 

And they lied to FISA judges, claiming they validated the dossier, when they had not.

what conflict? Comey broke no laws. 

You have no idea what you're talking about.

Comey admitted to feeding the memo's he wrote, to a NY Times reporter.   That leak of classified data, is a crime.

None of that is true.

I deal in reality. 

Despite reality kicking you in the balls. 


 

Quote

 

28 C.F.R. 45.2, "Disqualification arising from personal or political relationship.” It reads that, without special authorization, “no employee shall participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with (1) Any person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution;

 

or (2) Any person or organization which he knows has a specific and substantial interest that would be directly affected by the outcome of the investigation or prosecution." 

 

 

Being friends with Comey, is a personal relationship with a person substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation.

It doesn't get any clearer than that.

Donald Trump cares about Donald Trump.  He doesn't care about our country, his family, his staff, or anything else.   

 

He only cares about himself.
