Trump’s Attorneys Now Arguing That No Prosecutor Can Investigate A Sitting President

Westlake Legal Group GYbjD9y_5kNhKO3j36XjFZMiwAINd7L1aB-Y9IqRDFA Trump’s Attorneys Now Arguing That No Prosecutor Can Investigate A Sitting President r/politics

No prosecutor can investigate the President because that would circumvent the Constitutional provision for Impeachment by Congress

This is where I have a problem with the current POTUS line of argument: if a NY DA cannot get the tax returns of a sitting POTUS, why wouldn’t it also apply to any political position? I can slightly see the argument about not investigating the POTUS, while specifically in the role of the POTUS, but not being able to summon tax records? That’s a serious stretch, given most of his time was as a private citizen.

Trumps lawyers are basically making a case for any elected politician being immune to any investigation, because they are currently in office.

Congress cannot investigate the President because the entire executive branch has absolute immunity from Congressional subpoenas.

There is no legal basis of absolute immunity, in the US — this argument is the most hilarious of them all. It’s a great set of words, well written by a lawyer, but it won’t hold up in court … which is why it will never make it TO court.

‘It’s Not Fake News’: Legal Experts Erupt as Trump Dismisses Whistleblower Complaint

Westlake Legal Group Ju-b6ZWER1TZJHrtNNFTrWpj-XfPMXvjZyD71UEYErU ‘It’s Not Fake News’: Legal Experts Erupt as Trump Dismisses Whistleblower Complaint r/politics

If that’s his defense, then fucking tell us what they’re reporting, shitbird. If for no other reason than to get ahead of it. And allow the DOJ to get the details into the public, so you don’t have to get dragged all day over a non-story.

You can’t just make that comment and then leave it completely up in the air with no detail. That’s not how basic, adult logic works.

Jesus fucking christ, dude. Jesus christ.

I’m Tony Schwartz, and I ghost-wrote Trump: The Art of the Deal. AMA about creating a monster

Westlake Legal Group Thsd_Igt6-E9pE2VdRIz2l7cInNmawISbXRQXVlzlQE I'm Tony Schwartz, and I ghost-wrote Trump: The Art of the Deal. AMA about creating a monster r/politics

I’m Tony Schwartz. Thirty years ago, I wrote a piece of fiction titled “The Art of the Deal” for Donald Trump. I have been doing penance ever since. For the past 17 years, that’s meant running The Energy Project, where we focus on creating better workplaces by helping people to better manage their own energy – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Ask me anything, truly.

Donald Trump Whistleblower Complaint: Likely Evidence of ‘Gross Abuse of Power’ Claims Supreme Court Lawyer—’Truth Will Come Out’

Westlake Legal Group u6y_3RrFYWNp_I90Y9g7rPtyOIqIDOt6rtYaOImMRRY Donald Trump Whistleblower Complaint: Likely Evidence of 'Gross Abuse of Power' Claims Supreme Court Lawyer—'Truth Will Come Out' r/politics

Every day seema to provide us another dangled carrot of hollow hope.

As long as there is hope of ‘someone else’ fixing things, most people are happy to stay home and let the GOP continue with its coup.

The Republican ploy is to delay the death of hope to the point they have enough control that protests, riots, or even revolution are no longer effective threats to their power. Coverup after coverup, denial after denial, it’s all just a delay tactic to keep things out of view where possible and let the legal system slowly creep forward until they own the legal system and can put a stop to everything threatening them.

Trump’s communications with foreign leader are part of whistleblower complaint that spurred standoff between spy chief and Congress, former officials say

Westlake Legal Group uuaMFpv-MWsWe3cRylTbwYNI3ESAtHjZH5qoVhY3Gd0 Trump’s communications with foreign leader are part of whistleblower complaint that spurred standoff between spy chief and Congress, former officials say r/politics

I’d bet the whistleblower is Sue Gordon, former Deputy DNI under Coats. She hears Trump’s promise to this mysterious leader (Putin) in mid to late July and tries to get Coats to do something about it. Coats goes to Trump and gets “resigned” on July 28th (official on August 15th) . Coats is a good soldier and keeps his mouth shut while Gordon keeps working. Coats is told to make sure Gordon is gone too, so he interrupts her meeting on August 9 (which was on election security oddly enough) and forces her to resign immediately. Gordon, upset by the whole situation, writes her resignation and addresses it to Trump directly, a very unusual move according those in the intelligence community. She files an official whistleblower complaint, and now we’re seeing the third or fourth attempt to silence her.

Edit: the complaint was in the 12th of August, 3 days before Gordon’s resignation became official.

The US’s top spy agency just dropped a big hint that an ‘urgent’ whistleblower complaint involves Trump or someone close to him

Because it’s a matter involving national intelligence and there are specific procedures outlined by statute that the employee is required to follow.

If the DNI or the IG don’t act upon the complaint, the whistleblower can relay the complaint to the head of the congressional intelligence committee only after obtaining and following guidance from the DNI, through the inspector general, about how to communicate classified information to the congressional IC.

Immediately after this section, the statute explicitly states “any action taken by the director under this paragraph shall be subject to judicial review.” Seems like the drafters were a little short sighted on this front.
