Wait I thought Fark's resident conservative GEDs in law were swearing Trump can pardon state crimes and while it will be appealed SCOTUS will rule it constitutional.

Who pardons the pardoner?

He also can't fire the New York AG. Nice one-two punch, Mueller!

Only if his insurance on Trump Tower is paid up.  Otherwise, no deal.

Schneiderman has a contentious history with Trump. The president has mocked him relentlessly on social media and TV, denouncing him as a "hack" and "lightweight."

The attorney general won a $25 million settlement last November after a lengthy investigation into fraudulent practices at Trump University.


I wonder if 45 ever regrets being such a dick to people who can hurt him.

Mueller is front-loading this in anticipation of Trump firing him and anyone who won't stop the investigation.

This won't end well.

He's going to be dragged out of the White House in cuffs, kicking and screaming, along with his entire rotten family.

still no mention of sources other than "people who should know" .   lots of disinfo out there. plenty of water muddying going on so they can scream "fake news"  etc. the net is crazy with oppo bots and people pushing fake stuff. Look at what happened to Claude and Louise. the "discredit the media and investigation" campaign is in high gear now.

I remember the thread when Paris Hilton was arrested and taken away in handcuffs in the back of a cop car. 2600 comments.

When that happens to Trump it will be epic.
 
2017-08-30 10:33:45 PM  
Trump is playing Candyland - he thinks he gets ahead a little bit, then... WHOOSH! down the slide he goes. Mueller, meanwhile, is playing chess. He's done positioning his pawns to draw his opponent(s) out and has started moving his back row pieces. I think we're gonna see the pace pick up from here on out.

My prediction - 10 threads (initial thread, plus 9 "Thread's closed; please go to this new thread") on the day Mueller's report to the Deputy AG drops, 15 threads on the day the House introduces articles of impeachment, 20+ threads when Trump resigns (he WILL NOT allow himself to be tried by the Senate).

Pence is dirty, too. He either knew:

A - Flynn talked to the Russians on the day Obama imposed sanctions in December

or

B - Flynn was collaborating with and/or compromised by the Russians while Flynn was serving as NSA and didn't call him out.

Pence is complicit.

Tonight is "multi-post across multiple topics and see which one sticks" night, I guess...

Now that this is confirmed, let's consider this.

Friday night's epic clusterf*ck of a news dump?

I thought we'd be finding out that Mueller subpoenaed Trump in two weeks.

But what if it was Scheniderman, instead?

2017-08-30 11:38:56 PM  
An interesting thought struck me while watching the NY AG info coming out. NY has it's own obstruction of justice law. Could there be an argument made that a presidential pardon attempt or even a discussion with a possible witness be a violation of the state (not federal) obstruction of justice statute? I think that would be uncharted an area any of the criminal bar members want to jump in on that idea.

Yea, about that - it's pretty farking cut and dried in the Constitution itself.

Article II, Section 2, Clause 1 (condensed):  "The President shall have the power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offenses against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

There exists NO grant of authority under the Constitution for the President to grant any relief for those accused/convicted of State Criminal/Civil laws and/or those facing Civil Litigation or ordered to pay damages as a result of that litigation.  Ex Parte Grossman, 267 U.S. 87, 113 (1925)

I am going to remain pessimistic to avoid another crushing disappointment (you know, like the motherfarking election).  It is entirely possible that Mueller begins AND ends with Manafort and that nothing ever rises to Resident Rump level.  The guy was the designated fall guy from early on.  I have hope but I'm not going to be lulled into a false sense of confidence again.  Rump is incompetent on so many levels I would hate to see one big shot at the rotten apple wasted.

Yay!  Actually, I hope he does bring it on... the more he does this, the more people he seems to bring to our defense.  Unless he somehow actually manages to bring about the Fourth Reich, all of this is backfiring in the long run on them.  It just might get a bit ugly for some of us in the short term... which really sucks.
