The Beat Goes On: Manafort, Flynn, Cohen, Stone, Papadopoulos, Gates.

It's common to compare Trump's legal problems to Nixon's,
but that itself is a low legal bar. More broadly, Trump has now
had *more advisers indicted* earlier in his term than
*any* President in history.

The "witch hunt" seems to have caught a lot of witches. MSNBC's Ari Melber, legal analyst and host of "The Beat" compares staff and adviser indictments of the Trump, Nixon, Clinton and Obama presidencies.


examines how despite claims that the Russia probe is a “witch-hunt”, Mueller has proven to be one of the fastest and most effective Special Counsels in U.S. history, racking up indictments at the fastest pace since Watergate.

      Trump's "Tough Friends Will Make It Very Bad For Democrats" Statements Are Illegal And Actionable

      This seed article was chosen more to illustrate how the MSM can distort issues by using misleading headlines than to provide information. You've already got the information, and we all know about this story and the President's statements. Trump did not just say "bikers," he also said military and police.


      To me, the President has at once committed obstruction of justice, and treason, on television.
      The treason is the most obvious, 45* makes clear that he would divide our armed forces and police, or turn the military and police against the Congress. That would set up a fight between the two factions. It could weaken our security, possibly to the point where we would be critically vulnerable to attack from outside. That's treason; but it's the more difficult argument, and the least likely to be actionable.

      But, the 'obstruction of justice' charge is not a difficult argument and it is actionable. It could be included in the current investigation. There is a powerful argument here that could be the straw that breaks the camel's back: In his recent statements, Trump threatened to use the power of his office, and that of the military and police, not for any of the almost countless legitimate reasons he might do so, nor for the quasi-legitimate polical excuses that he thinks he can use them for - but to influence a criminal investigation, any criminal investigation, but this time an investigation into his own alleged criminal activities since his election; crimes not yet subject to statutes of limitations, and not yet hushed-up by court order. That is obstruction of justice, and extortion, respectively. Why would you say what Trump said, except to interfere in, or stop altogether, the investigations?

      They can't even make the argument that this is just Trump making threats but that he didn't actually commit a crime: We saw the crime committed, as it was committed. Trump told us the motive as part of the act.

      This isn't just about Trump now. We're fighting for the survival of the "Rule of Law," and it's touch and go at the moment. This latest attack could be interpreted to mean that Trump thinks he's ready to take on the Judiciary head on. I don't buy it: I'd guess that he's losing support, even from within the Mafia, and is desperate to retain power. The moment he leaves the White House, he will likely be arrested.

          Former Obama White House Counsel Greg Craig may soon be charged by the Justice Department for engaging in illegal unregistered overseas lobbying, in a case initially probed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller -- a development that would make him the first Democrat to face prosecution in the long-running Russia investigation.
