Eboni K Williams Donald Trump

Democrats’ hopes soared this week when news broke that former FBI Director James Comey had evidence that President Donald Trump tried to interfere with the FBI investigation into Gen. Mike Flynn’s ties to Russia.

But those hopes were dashed on Wednesday when legal experts agreed there was no case of obstruction against Trump.

Professor emeritus at Harvard Law School Alan Dershowitz writes in the New York Daily News that “on balance, the obstruction case against President Trump is not strong, as a matter of law”.

Elizabeth Price Foley, professor of constitutional law at Florida International University College of Law, states that President Trump’s alleged statements to Comey do not constitute an obstruction of justice.

“Indeed, if they did, virtually every communication between criminal defense lawyers and investigators would be a crime,” she wrote in an op-ed for the New York Times.

“Even assuming, for the sake of argument, that Mr. Trump intended an implied offer of continued employment in exchange for Mr. Comey’s dismissal of the Flynn investigation, it would be implausible for Mr. Comey to construe it as such,” she wrote.

Attorney and Fox News host Eboni K. Williams (pictured top) also weighed in, saying even if Trump suggested backing off the investigation of Flynn, that would not be enough for an impeachment.

“It must be made with specific intent; meaning that he specifically said it for the sole purpose of shutting down this Flynn investigation,” said Williams on Wednesday’s ‘The Fox News Specialists’ show.

Trump supporters point to the fact that Comey himself said he received no requests from anyone to stop the FBI investigations at a Senate hearing earlier this month.

When asked if he would stop the investigation if anyone asked him to, Comey said no, “Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose.”

    In that case he has nothing to worry about. ?

  • Being bad is way more fun

    I knew the information was from Fox Nonews .. No other stations or news agencies are saying this .. Spin that

  • JV

    Legal experts could go back and forth all day on this (there’s plenty of experts who believe his actions did constitute obstruction). If he tried to impede an investigation on his administration by firing the FBI director — if that they consider that to be legally a “proceeding” because that term is subject to interpretation — then it could be considered obstruction of justice. This is to say nothing of the growing evidence of the admin’s collusion with Russia, which is totally separate.

    Even if he is impeached, you need a majority in the house and 2/3 the Senate to be kicked out of office (remember that Clinton was impeached the house but they couldn’t get 2/3 in the Senate). I don’t think we’ll get there until/unless the Dems take the House in 2018 and there are some major defections in the Senate, depending on whatever else Trump does between now and then.

    I think the real story here is that Republicans are spooked enough about what they’ve seen that they’ve allowed a special investigator to be appointed over the Russia/Trump connections, which means 1.) it doesn’t matter who Trump replaces Comey with and 2.) he can’t count on Republicans dragging their feet in congressional investigations anymore. Even if he’s not impeached, his political capital is highly tainted, and, depending on the results of the investigation, neutered completely. That’s a win in and of itself.

  • Noirluv45

    When I read the Fox News reference, I immediately stopped reading. If Trump publicly grabbed a woman by her puss or did something else illegal or unethical, Fox News and all the other Trumpets would say he did nothing wrong. Funny how if it were Obama doing the things that idiot has been doing, those same people (including the idiot) would condemn Obama to hell. Oh, the hypocrisy.

  • Evillene

    For real? Fox News has systemic credibility issues…just like Trump. I think everyone assumes that Trump intended to shut down Comey’s investigation to prevent the FBI from exposing illegal conduct, which is the textbook definition of obstruction. Mueller — a friend of the Bush family (who all DESPISE Trump) — did not eagerly resign a law firm partnership to exonerate Trump. I expect fireworks.

  • jazmine

    Well since a Fox News legal “expert” said it

  • Coy little wink

    Sandra do u work for fox news? So what is the special counsel investigating?

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Right so it must be true ??

  • Elevated Soul

    The Democratic Party is just stupid in general…Now Robert Mueller will be in charge of the special investigation,which mean this witch-hunt those idiots,have for my president may just lead back to their sorry arses…They can’t accept defeat nor the will of those of us,that voted for President Trump.

    They want to deflect from Seth Rich who was murdered last year. He was a DC Staffer in the DNC,who leaked 40,000 plus emails to Wiki-Leaks, which completely destroy the Russian narrative,those dummies are peddling.

  • Cheese eggs

    I like how when the Comey/memo bombshell hit, Fox decided to air a long Tucker Carlson segment about Tim “cokehead” Allen’s TV show getting cancelled instead of ACTUAL NEWS. Stay classy, Fox.

  • JV

    What do you have against Robert Mueller? Name someone who you believe would be more qualified to lead an independent investigation. I ask because it was a bi-partisan decision to appoint him.

  • Itzgoingdown

    I can see how a Trump impeachment and removal would benefit Gays, Illegals and White Liberals. I see no benefit for blacks one way or the other. “shrugs”

    After 8 years under Obama, The 20 YEAR Hope and Change BLACK Community Organizer, the BLACK Community made absolutely NO Economic nor Academic progres. What’s the point? Everything else is just smoke and mirrors and when the dust settles the BLACK Community will still be at the bottom……. THE PERMANENT UNDERCLASS.

    No, I am not and will never let it go because 70 to 80% of Black kids STILL go to the WORST schools in their city and state AFTER Obama’s 8 YEARS (of hope and change) in office!

    ****but Trump is not a defense attorney so what is she saying???

    “Even assuming, for the sake of argument, that Mr. Trump intended an implied offer of continued employment in exchange for Mr. Comey’s dismissal of the Flynn investigation, it would be implausible for Mr. Comey to construe it as such,” she wrote.
    ^^ how theee fugg he can’t construe it as such if that is what Trump intended??? these folks just talking circles around the american public at this point smh

    ^^^ I am truly peeved when so called “educated” maafuggas say dumb shii that makes no sense to a logical maafugga like myself. I am taking a break from the blog for the rest of taday… Sandra posting nuthin but shii that brings my pressure up…

    When asked if he would stop the investigation if anyone asked him to, Comey said no, “Because it would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose.”
    FOR THE RECORD… the quote up top says Comey would NOT STOP the investigation if asked to, it never said that no one asked him to stop investigating..

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    And I remember when there were these massive nationwide anti-Trump women’s protests that Saturday in January, that was getting wall-to-wall coverage on CNN and MSNBC… but every time I checked Fox News, they had something else going on. Totally ignored it. They’re not a real news channel, they’re more of a propaganda channel.

    Great question, because that’s pretty textbook to me. NYTimes I do like a lot, but some of their op-ed writers they hire just have “diverse” opinions. Bret Stephens and his climate-denialist faux science was a particularly egregious hire imo. Opinion columns are always “enter at your own risk” though, no matter what the site or publication.

    So NOW Fox News is chiming in on Comey’s firing and the possibility of impeachment?? Fox is behind the 8-ball on this one. No matter how hard they try, this narrative will not disappear because Trump DOESN’T / CAN’T / WON’T learn from his errors, previous lies or questionable choices.. He will be the instrument of his own demise.

    Trump campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russians: report

    Advisers to President Trump’s campaign reportedly had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russian officials and those with ties to Moscow.

    Reuters reported that former national security adviser Michael Flynn, along with other advisers to Trump, had contact with Russians in at least 18 calls or emails during the last seven months of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

    Of the 18 undisclosed contacts, six were phone calls between Russia’s ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, and advisers to Trump, Reuters reported, citing current and former officials.

Which has led To young black men thinking marching, protesting, fighting the man and other things are more important than FEEDING his family. To many bums……

    The only way out of this dysfunction for blacks is thru education, jobs, marriage and to reject liberalism. Expecting RayRay and Booquisha to educate their kids is a joke. They can’t or can barely read themselves because they went to the same horrible ghetto schools their kids are new going to!

    For the overwhelming majority of black kids getting a good education in horrible ghetto schools is a Liberal trick bag (can’t win). Liberals blowing smoke to keep blacks uneducated, dependent and broke.

    I think a case against Trump for obstruction is going to be a hard one to prove…the president can fire an FBI director for any reason or no reason at all. Comey claims that he thought the president was trying to influence the investigation yet said nothing to the Justice Department or to his investigation team. Comey’s actions are just as questionable as Trump’s. Unless it can be proven that Trump’s firing of Comey is connected to the Flynn investigation the Russia investigation I think this whole obstruction case is dead in the water…

    The minute she showed the FOX news photo that told the truth. The Trump Russia investigation is still very much under way so, what was given was some opinions from people who are not on the investigating team. As of matter of fact, the investigation is stronger than it ever was. Its these types of comments that strengthen my believe that Trump is a secret sponser to a blog that focuses toward Black culture.

    You shouldn’t throw rocks when you can’t even get the facts straight yourself.

    This is a truly dumb comment. According to your reasoning, anyone who is acquitted must be innocent of the charge. Thus, OJ didn’t do it.

    Substituting hyperbole for facts, shows you have no credible defense. We have not heard Trump sneeze but we’ve heard him sniffle: “I have no dealings with Russia. I have no deals that could happen in Russia, because we’ve stayed away. And I have no loans with Russia. I have no loans with Russia at all.”

    Why did he and his pals, Flynn, Manafort, Paige and Sessions lie about their ties to Russia? Why did Flynn ask for immunity in order to testify before Congress?

    It really doesn’t matter, what’s happening here is he is being handicapped for the 2018 and 2020 elections. He is basically handing the Dems everything they need beautifully gift wrapped to take pick up seats in both houses. This may all amount to nothing, but everytime he opens his mouth or sends a tweet it further erodes the credibility of the Whitehouse. By the end of the summer if they don’t pass any major legislation he will be a lame duck president for the remainder of his Presidency. So the goal was never impeachment it was to destroy any credibility that he may have which wasn’t much. So which ever shady character thought this up in DC is doing a masterful job because he plays right into like they knew he would. His defenders are too stupid to realize they have been conned or ashamed into defending him. Your right he is never going to be impeached it will be worse for him he’ll be a President with no power and no confidence from the people he presides over, which is worse and he will just sit in that prison of a whitehouse miserable for three years and forced to run a losing campaign in 2020.

  • Michael Foley

    Actually, the bar is much higher, not lower. When your scope of responsibility is this great, you have much greater privileges. Why? Because without it, you cannot function in any meaningful way.

    If a President can be prosecuted for any slight that is mistaken as an attempt to influence, then no President would ever complete his/her first term.

  • Michael Foley

    You are incorrect.

    First things first. President Obama did not ‘deport more people than any President to date’. That is twisting of the facts.

    What the Obama Administration did was redefine the word “deport” to include all illegal aliens that were stopped at the border. So no, he was not the ‘deporter-in-chief’.

    On to President Trump. The replacement bill (part 1 of…who knows?) has been voted on in the House. Paul Ryan is still holding the bill, but it will be going to the Senate for further action.

    Wall. The House of Representatives holds the purse strings for the Federal Government. They voted on the Budget that was created during the last year of the Obama Administration and, of course, it did not include any funding for the wall. The next Budget, which will be the first Budget for the Trump Administration, will most likely include that funding. But who knows? What I do know is that the President has gone to great lengths to influence Congress to fund the wall. It’s up to them now.

    ~Significant actions by President Trump~

    The single most significant issue of this election cycle has been resolved in favor of the President. That is the confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. The President has also appointed an ever growing number of lower court judges, which is a huge deal but nobody talks about it.

    The President’s Cabinet is of major significance also. His EPA Chief is putting the leash back on the EPA – finally! So the overbearing amount of regulation is being scaled back as well. The EPA has abused its power since it was created during the Nixon Administration.

    Education Secretary Devos is now the head of an agency that has gone off the rails as well. She is, hopefully, going to reign that back in also.

    Just by taking office, the President has had a major impact on business (GM, Ford, and others are reinvesting here instead of Mexico and other places – along with many other major corporations), on immigration (illegal immigration arrests are up significantly), and illegal border crossings are almost completely stopped!

    There is quite a bit more, but I have limited space to write!

  • Michael Foley

    She had the facts exactly as they stand. It takes both Chambers of Congress.

    Yes, the House votes on Articles of Impeachment, and if successful then a trial is conducted.

    The Senate is the jury. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court presides over the trial.

    But as Ms. Deliteful stated, it takes both Chambers to make it happen.

    On a side note, you seem to be quite angry. Maybe take a swim or something. Or drink decaf. Or read critically so you don’t get your blood pressure up. Whatever the case, take a chill pill and relax.

  • Michael Foley

    That’s interesting. Yes, us ‘rightwingers’ conclude that most people with a different political opinion are usually on the Left.

    However, it’s the Progressive Left that seems to be the ones rioting at universities, crying and setting fires when someone they don’t like comes to speak, and generally losing their cool.S

    We get insulted, screamed at, abused, threatened, and attacked as monsters. Yet the ones screaming are the ones that display the characteristics of ‘monsters’ – not conservatives.

    There are no ‘facts’ in regard to Russia and this investigation. Only innuendo, hearsay, and gossip. There has not been one single concrete piece of evidence presented to date.

    Oh, by the way, it’s that “evidence” bit that is needed to prove, well, whatever it is people are screaming about!

    Ah yes, Time. The magazine that made Hitler “Man of the Year” for 1936.

    Really pressed for no reason…. Maybe a ‘green brownie’ to go along with that decaf would help such a disposition….

Analyze your own a$$ because you don’t know jack about me bish. I get my facts about orange man and I’m smart because they are now the highest rated news agency. Now I am going to get back to talking to my people. Bye bish!

    Ya’ll Americans are acting like the true sheeple you’re.
    Ya’ll always believe what the media tell you to believe.

    Trump is the best president for this Fcked up generation .

    Obama has ruined your country, but ya’ll acting like is God sent, meanwhile he hasn’t done shit for ya’ll.

    USA before Obamination was so much better, the only wrong doing was the Irak/ Afganistan and being nosy minding every country business, Now 8 years later , your country is full of crossdressers , black on black crimes has skyrocketed , Chicago ( Obama city ) is hell on earth.

    Congratulation you play yourself, OBAMINATION IS NOT AA, HIS AMERICAN FAMILY IS WHITE, HE’S A MIXED AFRICAN MAN BORN IN US SOIL.

    Climate denialist?… Lol. That’s such a laughable term!

    Please, please, tell me what, exactly, AGW is and what supports it? Do you even know? Or do you simply hear, “99,000% of scientists KNOW! SO THERE!” and say “oh, there it is!”

    Seriously. That nonsense is truly biased and crazy.

    You relax. She (and you) are simply wrong. It does not take both chambers to impeach, it only takes the House. Removal requires both chambers, but not impeachment. And she didn’t say it takes both chambers “to make it happen,” she specifically said it takes both chambers to “impeach.”

    She was so busy trying to clown others (“loony left”) she didn’t realize her own mistake.

  • Michael Foley

    Wow. Guess that green brownie hasn’t hit yet.

    It’s an easy accessible fact that more 9 in 10 scientists believe not only in global warming — which is happening regardless — but that human activity is the primary driver. I’m not sure why my take here was so controversial to you, although I had meant to write “climate change denialist” — sorry if that caused confusion somehow.

    I don’t know how old you are, or if you remember the Patrick Fitzgerald Independent Investigation into Valerie Plame?

    That right there should tell you that the “Independent Counsel” nonsense is something that EVERYONE should fear. I would never allow one to be appointed if it were up to me.

    The investigation was supposed to be centered on finding out who “outed” a CIA employee named Valerie Plame.

    HOWEVER… Patrick Fitzgerald was informed on DAY ONE that the person who spilled the beans was Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage, who worked for Colin Powell. Sec. Powell also knew.

    Fitzgerald told them both to be quiet and not to tell anyone, including the President, under threat of imprisonment!

    He then spent over two years ‘investigating’ whomever he wanted to investigate. And eventually he prosecuted and convicted an aide to the Vice President for obstruction of justice. Why? Because that aide testified under oath about remembering a phone conversation from two years before and the person on the other end remembered it differently. But that other person had died and so they used a written statement about what he ‘remembered’ back then.

    So an innocent man was railroaded and sent to prison. The person guilty of ‘outing’ the CIA employee (who had worked at CIA Headquarters in Langley for the last 5 years…) was never prosecuted.

    There is NO justice from these independent prosecutors! Only grief and nonsense.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Laughable? Nah. I know a coverup when I see it. Really faulty logic there, btw…
    Saying “I know he will cheat” would just be guessing about somebody’s possible future action. But saying I know Trump IS covering up something is using common sense to judge the man’s past & current actions.
    But anyway, I guess we’ll see if Trump & company are laughing after special prosecutor Robert Muller gets done with his investigation.

  • Simone

    And if President Trump is removed from office (not happening), we’ll have VP Pence so the country will still be in good hands.

    I am sure you don’t give a s_h_it about any negative feedback you get for voicing “YOUR” opinion because I certainly don’t give a s#it about what anyone says that I agree with you.

    Trump is not going anywhere

  • Jamal Warner

    No, President Obama did deport more illegal citizens than any president in history, fact. The replacement bill is not going to pass the Senate, which a lot of the republican senators have already stated they are not voting in favor of it. They are up for re-election and it will hurt their chances of being re-elected.

    No one is going to fund a pointless wall, which will not keep anyone out of this country. The wall was a failed campaign promise that his “mindless” supporters will not let go of it. It was a lie he used to get votes. So his most significant is appointment of a supreme court justice, who they had to re-write the rules to get him voted in because their own party would not support him completely.

    Trump EPA pick has no experience and no background in anything remotely associated with policies. He was an appointee that clearly did not have the resume for the job. Devoe further has no experience besides being a major donor. Do you not see this limits their impact being so un-experienced. Trump has no major impact on business, maybe speculative investing, but not business.

  • Jamal Warner

    I am not a leftist or whatever you try to tag me. I disagree with every point you made, which puts a hole in your points. Your post is a poor attempt at uplifting your party and demonizing the other party. It is this thought process that contributes to the turmoil in Washington. You can not see past your own views, which constricts your world view. You should try to at least see someone else side to get a better full understanding of the issues.

  • Jamal Warner

    I disagree!!!

    Nope and I knew it….lol as a black American I’m just glad not to be a slave anymore lol…whites know the score..lol..next lifetime I want to be white
