Democrats are circling like Indians in an old wester movie, ready to attack the wagon train just because it’s there. In this case, some of them are talking about the possibility of obstruction of justice charges against President Donald Trump in connection with the FBI investigation of Michael Flynn.
Former FBI Director James Comey testified that Trump told him to stop investigating Flynn but Trump adamantly denies the allegation, claiming it’s a political retaliation on the part of Comey for Trump firing him.
I heard one Democrat say that Bill Clinton was impeached for obstruction of justice, but she said nothing about Clinton also being found guilty of perjury. All the Democrats care about is finding anything they can use to hopefully impeach Trump and muster enough votes in the Senate to remove him from office.
If the House does draw up articles of impeachment against Trump, then the President will face a trial before Senate. If the Senate votes to convict, then they vote on what action to take. It takes two-thirds of the Senate (67 votes) to remove a president from office if found guilty. In Bill Clinton’s case, the votes to remove him fell short with only 50 votes.
The current Senate is composed of 46 Democrats and 2 Independents, all of which would readily vote to remove Trump from office. That means 19 Republicans would also have to vote to remove Trump and while one would think Republicans would support their own Party’s President, that’s not necessarily the case. Chances are that Mitch McConnell, John McCain and Jeff Flake would side with the Democrats since they are RINOs. The question is how many other Senate RINOs would join them, as it would only take 16 others to turn on the best President we’ve had since Ronald Reagan.
If Democrats have any idea of trying to negate Trump’s election and put Hillary Clinton in office, then they will face a number of obstacles, including the recent report about obstruction of justice charges against former US Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the FBI lying about it and covering up their lies.
Tom Fitton, President of the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch reported:
“In Washington, the ostensible story is rarely the real story. We know, for example, that former President Clinton engineered a meeting with President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch, on the tarmac of the Phoenix Airport on June 27, 2016.”
‘That’s the official story, replete with the charming and intentionally disarming detail that all they talked about was their grandchildren. It was just coincidental, don’t you know, that at the time the FBI was looking into Hillary Clinton’s use of a ‘personal’ email server to send, receive and store classified information.”
“And it was also simply coincidental that just a few days later, the director of the FBI – who served under Attorney General Lynch – announced that he wouldn’t recommend a prosecution of Hillary Clinton.”
Everyone is aware of this as that is what we’ve all been repeatedly told by Lynch, Clinton and the FBI. However, Fitton reveals Judicial Watch’s latest discovery:
“The organization I head, Judicial Watch, asked the FBI on July 7, 2016, for any records that might pertain to the infamous tarmac meeting. We had to sue after we were ignored by the agency.”
“Then the FBI told us flat-out that it couldn’t find any records. And we now know that was flat-out untrue. Because, in responding to another one of our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits, the Justice Department gave us heavily redacted documents that showed there were additional documents tucked away at the FBI headquarters.”
“If not for Judicial Watch’s lawsuits these documents would still be hidden today.”
The FBI suddenly found 30 pages of information that took them six weeks to review before turning them over to Judicial Watch. Fitton explained:
“Because of the revelation in our other lawsuit, the FBI – without our knowledge—‘reopened’ our FOIA request. The agency supposedly found about 30 pages of information, which it needed six weeks to review. The FBI finally gave them to us late Thursday.”
“Now we know why the FBI played shell games. The documents show that FBI officials were concerned solely about the leaking of details of the tarmac meeting. None of the documents show top agency officials cared one whit about the propriety of the meeting itself, but only about who blew the whistle on the covert tête-à-tête.”
“In one email, an FBI official writes ‘we need to find that guy.’ And in another we learn that the Phoenix FBI office was contacted ‘in an attempt to stem any further damage.’ An FBI official working on Lynch’s security detail even goes so far as to suggest non-disclosure agreements to keep the full facts from coming forth.”
“No wonder the FBI didn’t turn these documents over until we caught it red-handed, hiding and lying about them.”
This needs to be brought out in any discussion concerning the FBI and obstruction of justice charges against Donald Trump. It’s no coincidence that James Comey was Director of the FBI at the time of the Lynch-Clinton meeting and he is the one who carried out the obstruction of justice order to protect Hillary Clinton. Note that Comey is openly testifying that Trump tried to obstruct justice but has never fully admitted that he helped with the obstruction of justice concerning the Hillary Clinton email investigation. This should throw a great deal of question as to Comey’s integrity and motivation behind his claims that Democrats are now using to try to convict Donald Trump.
