    This case is for all intents and purposes, a case of public perception. If anyone notices a pattern(objectively), all of Trump's attempts have been for media perception, not necessarily in the course of the prosecution. Which is important, because a criminal proclaiming their innocence in public(or getting others to vouch for them publicly) is not the same thing as interference. It's basically howling in the wind.

    Give us the examples of the obstruction of justice. Remember when hilary, obama, and staff "didnt do anything wrong?" Hating him isnt an example.

    This is the least surprising news of 2019.... I'm sure the WH reached out to Barron Trump to get him to say "My poor daddy didn't obstruct justice"....

    That's actually a VERY good argument that I didn't even think of. If Trump's attempts with McGahn are acts of obstruction of justice, then Obama's press comments on Hillary's server, also qualifies for much the same.

    Sounds exactly like what Trump tried to coerce Comey into doing. Telling the public the truth. Comey did in fact tell Trump 3 separate times that the FBI wasn't investigating him. Later confirmed by Comey. MSM hyperventilated for months back then, and they're hyperventilating now. AG Barr outlined McGahn's communications with Rosenstein. Trump let Rosenstein decide whether Mueller was conflicted. Rod said "no". The end.

    No he didn't. Even Dirty Bob couldn't find chargeable evidence that Trump obstructed justice by firing a lying leaking Jim Comey and objecting to the illegal witch-hunt launched against him by the Obama Administration.

    Crazed Democrats are trying to force McGahn to violate attorney-client privilege, a nearly sacrosanct part of the U.S. justice system, the privilege is a crucial aspect of the Constitution’s protection against forced self-incrimination.

    Not only is attorney-client privilege at issue, but so is “executive privilege," a less sacrosanct, but still important, protection of the Constitution’s delegation of distinct powers to distinct branches of government, even in a system where some powers overlap.

    It is especially in the realm of legal advice that the Constitutional Doctrine of Separation of Powers provides the executive branch of government an expectation of protection against legislative encroachments.

    These crazed clowns in the Legislature continue tilting at windmills.

    This case is one of facts not perception.

    Trump asked McGahn to say Trump did not obstruct.

    His asking is an attempt to obstruct.

    Did you really feel it necessary to NECRO a 3-Month-Old Thread just to post that? :bored:

    As far as the story in the OP?

    Trump obviously Attempted to Obstruct Justice.

    ^That is 100% beyond dispute.:salute:

    Is this as beyond dispute as Hillary in a landslide? I'm looking for some context here.

    Robert Mueller can’t remember what he had for breakfast.... he can only remember he used a spoon.

    He thinks Fusion GPS is a new breakfast cereal.

    So you are saying that Comey lied to Trump. Not surprising at all.
