White House Presents New Trump, Inc. Production: “The Wrath of Don”
(Three Who Have Felt The Wrath)
The two worst possible words in the English language anyone can ever hear: “You're fired...!!!” Donald J. Trump mastered those two words on his previous TV reality show (The Apprentice) and now he has carried them into the Oval Office and with reckless abandon.
The Main Story: Former U.S. attorney *Preet Bharara (bio below) said Sunday on ABC This Week that he thinks there is evidence to start a case for obstruction of justice against President Trump.
Bharara specifically said: “I think there's absolutely evidence to begin a case for obstruction – I think it's very important for all sorts of armchair speculators in the law, to be clear that no one knows right now whether there is a provable case of obstruction. It's also true... that there's no basis to say there's no obstruction. Whether or not that is impeachable or that's indictable, that's a very serious thing and I'm not sure that people fully get that the standard is not just whether something is a crime or not. Whether or not it can be charged as a crime or Congress will impeach, it is a very serious thing. That's an incredibly serious thing if people think that the president of the United States can tell heads of law enforcement agencies, based on his own whim or his own personal preferences or friendships, that they should or should not pursue particular criminal cases against individuals.”
Bharara also said that during the [Senate Intelligence committee] interview that there is evidence from someone who is under oath (e.g., former FBI director James Comey) that: “On at least one occasion, the president of the United States, cleared the room of his vice president and his attorney general and told his director of the FBI that he should essentially drop the case against his former national security adviser [and…] there is a lot to be “frightened and outraged” about and then he concluded: “That's not how America works.”
