Opinion — Typically when one is being investigated for a crime any crime, the legal standard, is to stay silent while the investigation plays out, so your public statements can’t be used against you. Public statements are for example, interviews, print, radio, and TV, press conferences, and social media posts.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions was nominated by President Trump for the position he currently holds and confirmed by a vote of 52-47 by the senate on February 8th 2017. 

As a reminder President Trump has not divested himself from his business interests, nor has he publicly released his tax returns. 

The Baltimore Sun

  1. Ya know, if Trump was truly innocent, he would have an air of confidence about him, and wouldnt be Tweeting about it defensively every single day. The fact that he keeps going on and on about it signifies to me that he did something nefarious.

  2. Just reading these few Trump tweets irritates the hell out of me. I suggest we take up a collection to help Tiff alleviate her obviously excessive medical bills in dealing with all the Trump tweets every single day.

    Her Tylenol bill alone must run into the thousands.

  3. I’m guessing he has figured out he and his kids crime spree is up with the Don McGahn revelations.

    As much as I want Donald and the Trump name disgraced for all time, nothing would put a smile on my face like seeing Don Jr arrested. I bet he cries like a stuck pig.

  4. I don’t know why, but Trump’s attempts to correctly spell ‘counsel’ just make me chuckle. I can only imagine that his staff gives him a multiple choice quiz every morning to see if he can learn. Alas, he’s being held back a grade once again.

    Question #1: How do you spell counsel?
    (hint: it’s already spelled correctly here)

    1) counsel,
    2) councel,
    3) council,
    4) none of the above.

    Trump: counts all?

    Edit: Trump is actually getting me to misspell it, I have seen the wrong one so many times.


  5. Trump has attacked every high ranking official, and even some low ranking official in the CIA, FBI and DOJ. Some are Republicans, some are Democrats. Who knew that Republicans and Democrats got along so well, in the government, that they all were the enemies of Trump.

  6. Shouldn’t we at least have a IG report, on what Ohr was suppose to have done, before we start screaming for him to be fired. Evidence, or is that to much to ask.

  7. Advancing dementia:

    “President Donald Trump on Monday spoke at a White House event in support of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs of Border Protection, two agencies housed within the Department of Homeland Security charged with immigration law enforcement and border security, respectively.

    In a strange turn, Trump repeatedly referred to CBP as “CBC.” Was he referring to the Congressional Black Caucus? The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation? Who knows.“

  8. RE: Trump’s threats about discovery…

    “Moss also addressed Trump’s tweet, saying that the president and his
    legal counsel would never see Brennan’s correspondence such as emails or
    text messages and that Trump and his lawyers are “candidly, living on
    another planet if they realistically think that’s how such a lawsuit
    would unfold.”

    “The litigation would be resolved strictly with motions, whether a
    motion to dismiss or a motion for summary judgment,” Moss said. “Neither
    side would ever get to the discovery process and even if in some
    bizarre world it did get that far the emails and text messages the
    president is referring to would be completely outside the scope of what
    would be relevant material.”

  9. The moron in chief thinks a WH counsel needs his permission to cooperate with a government investigation?

    Hint.. a WH counsel is a legal advisor… not a personal attorney. Does the stupid ever stop going on display?

  10. This is a dangerous and unfit POTUS and that was clear to me in 2015. It only gets worse. Resist? You better believe it!
