Barack Obama’s former Attorney General Eric Holder predicted on Friday night that President Trump is soon to be facing an obstruction of justice charge from Robert Mueller. According to Holder, special counsel Mueller already has plans to charge Trump with obstructing justice, and he made his prediction on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” last night. If you were wondering what’s taking Mueller so long to indict the POTUS, well, Holder says that Mueller is holding back until he builds a bullet proof case against the president, so keep your fingers crossed and be patient, as per Eric Holder’s own words:
“I’ve known Bob Mueller for 20, 30 years; my guess is he’s just trying to make the case as good as he possibly can. So, I think that we have to be patient in that regard.”
Eric Holder has suggested previously that President Trump is criminally liable for exercising his constitutional powers, i.e. for firing former FBI director James Comey during the Russia collusion investigation. Regarding the Comey firing extravaganza, Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz (a long time Democrat) said last year:
“You cannot charge a president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire Comey and his constitutional authority to tell the Justice Department who to investigate, who not to investigate”
This is actually very interesting. Since Eric Holder no longer “holds” a position in government, is he saying Mueller has leaked classified information to him illegally? Or is he admitting to be a lying BS slinger? It’s one or the other. As a “lawman”, Holder should know you can not charge the President for discharging his constitutional duties. Affirmative Action Employees, they say the darnedest things. Let’s not forget this is the same guy that was held in contempt of Congress, so he knows a lot about lying.
And speaking of Mueller’s so-called investigation regarding Russia collusion, he didn’t even announce his own report about the Russians because he was too embarrassed. He released it on a Friday night of a three-day weekend, competing with a major news story about 17 students killed in a school shooting. His report sounds like he copied it from a Russian reporter’s story from last fall.
The Russian journalist who uncovered election interference is confounded by the Mueller indictments. Much of the information Mueller published on Friday about the agency’s efforts to influence the election had already been published last October — in an article by a Russian business magazine, RBC:
A 37-page indictment issued by special counsel Robert S. Mueller’s team on Friday brings fresh American attention to one of the strangest elements of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election:
The Internet Research Agency (IRA), a
state-sponsored “troll factory” in St. Petersburg.
In a 4,500-word report titled “How the ‘troll factory’ worked the U.S. elections,” journalists Polina Rusyaeva and Andrey Zakharov offered the fullest picture yet of how the “American department” of the IRA used Facebook, Twitter and other tactics to inflame tensions ahead of the 2016 vote.
The article also looked at the staffing structure of the organization and revealed details about its budget and salaries.
