OK, if you have been following the news, there is a lot going on. During the time of a major pandemic and the peak of social unrest, the Teflon Don pulls a move straight out of a Hollywood script. When there are many distractions, a Friday night firing of the prosecutor investigating you is all you need to know.
Might be a matter of life or death for him. If you think that statement is overblown, apparently you’re not seeing what is clear.
Let me clarify something first. This site was created on the premise that if Donald Trump does not become a president of a second term, he will likely face prison. Full Stop.
He already has several associates that are in prison, have gone to prison or potentially headed there based on the acts directed by Donald Trump. These are the facts. In Federal terms they call it a conspiracy and use terms like co-defendant.
At this time, the appointed Atty. general does not believe that a sitting president can be held liable for criminal activity.
If the president can remain seated for another four years, all statue of limitations would expire for the majority of his crimes.
This is because they are out of the southern district of New York. If he does not win re-election, he faces the possibility of these investigations coming to light.
As we have reported on number of occasions there are many investigations pending. Most of which are in the Southern district of New York. This office has already brought several convictions and other indictments directly related to the Trump campaign. It is widely known that this office also has pending investigations into personal Trump affairs such as taxes, nonprofit organizations and other family related businesses.
Who is President Donald Trump’s favored replacement – current SEC Chairman Jay Clayton, whose resume is absent any previous experience as a prosecutor, at all. For an office known for convicting REAL gangsters and international crimes.
If you care about facts, a longer version is written below. I know the attention span and allocated time is precious. These facts are not a matter of life or death for all of us. Just some.
Lawmakers on Sunday continued to raise questions about the sudden removal of the prosecutor who oversaw the prosecution of Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, and who also is managing investigations of the president’s current lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, along with two of Giuliani’s former business associates.
“You really have to question this Friday night attempted massacre – now completed one,” House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., told NBC’s Meet the Press.
Schiff pointed to Berman’s initial refusal to resign in which the prosecutor referenced ongoing investigations within his office and his desire to advance them “without delay or interruption.”
“Berman clearly had a concern for why he was being pushed out,” Schiff said.
Separately, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the vice-chairman of the Intelligence Committee, told CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the Justice Department, under Barr’s leadership, has “repeatedly” intervened in politically-sensitive cases.
How rigged is it?
Earlier this year, the attorney general overruled prosecutors to recommend a lighter prison sentence for Trump adviser Roger Stone. More recently, he has become embroiled in an effort to abandon the prosecution of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.
In both cases, the attorney general’s action drew a hail of criticism and sharp rebukes from a court-appointed arbiter in the Flynn case who called the Justice Department action a “gross abuse” of power.
Justice Department showed ‘gross abuse of prosecutorial power’ in Michael Flynn case, court-appointed arbiter says.
“So, there seems to be a pattern from this administration that the president and his henchman, Mr. Barr, are willing to get rid of anyone that’s investigating people that get close to Donald Trump,” Warner said
In a Saturday letter informing Berman of his dismissal, Barr rejected the prosecutor’s suggestion that ongoing cases might be thwarted by the action.
Graham, whose committee would weigh the confirmation of a nominee to replace Berman, said that he knew Clayton and “believe him to be a fine man and accomplished lawyer.”
Both Sens. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., have called on Clayton to remove his name from consideration.
“I will not be complicit in helping President Trump and Attorney General Barr fire a U.S. attorney who is reportedly investigating corruption in this administration,” Gillibrand said.
Senate Minority Leader Schumer has called on Justice’s inspector general to review the action.
Trump, meanwhile, sidestepped on Saturday.
“I’m not involved,” Trump told reporters before departing for a campaign rally in Oklahoma.
