Bullying and intimidation is simply SOP for TRUMP

..Bullying and intimidation is simply SOP for TRUMP…

Trump starts the morning by admitting obstruction and threatening the Inspector General

Now that Donald Trump has made it clear he is beyond the rule of law and answerable to no one, he’s not hiding the fact that he would have stopped the Russian investigation immediately, had not there been a slight complication.

The Russian Witch Hunt Hoax continues, all because Jeff Sessions didn’t tell me he was going to recuse himself…I would have quickly picked someone else. So much time and money wasted, so many lives ruined…and Sessions knew better than most that there was No Collusion!

4:31 AM – Jun 5, 2018

Had Sessions not recused himself, Trump would have simply told Sessions to kill any investigation. This open admissions is not just a message that Trump no longer feels any need to disguise his obstruction of the investigation—after all, his attorneys have declared that he can’t be charged with obstruction, or anything else—but a message to any other official thinking they should step away from an issue in which they have a personal interest.

That message is: Don’t be silly. What is a position in the Trump government for, if not for personal benefit? Whether it’s a townhouse provided by lobbyists, angling a multi-million contract to friends, or a sweet billion dollar payday from a county at the center of an international shakedown … there are no laws.

Donald Trump is making it clear that for himself, and for his supporters, the law exists to be laughed at. Scott Pruitt may have played cover-all on corruption Bingo, but it hasn’t slowed one moment of his efforts to cause more damage and collect more payola. Jared Kushner may be handing over the classified lists of names to be killed to a Middle Eastern dictator … but it hadn’t kept him from being given top security clearance.

When Trump’s attorneys state that no laws apply to him, they’re not talking about theory. They’re talking about 501 days of facts on the ground.
