What did Trump tweet and when did he tweet it — TwitterGate

As the No. 2 official in counterintelligence, Strzok was considered to be one of the bureau's top experts on Russia.

Trump spent Saturday attacking the FBI's reputation, labeling an agent "very dishonest", describing the agency as "in Tatters", following former national security adviser Michael Flynn's guilty plea of lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russians. The idea that the president was immune from obstruction liability was never taken seriously even by Nixon's most ardent defenders.

Dowd declares that obstruction isn't a crime. Trump (or his designated "tweet counsel") can still hold forth on everything from Rosie O'Donnell to radical Islam.

A relatively alert 4-year-old would have been able to deduce Trump's meaning, even as congressional Republicans try to see other reasons for his private conversation with the FBI director.

What is truly breathtaking is that Trump had a clear, consistent defense that he and his lawyer just tweeted away. And yet, despite all this, it's unlikely that the Flynn revelations will do any lasting damage to the Trump administration.

Not much, since there have been no prosecutions under the act.

But what amounts to obstruction occurs when a "corrupt" intent is involved, Painter said. "I think it's a shame", Trump said on the White House South Lawn. The circumstances of the demotion remained a mystery for several months, with Mueller's office refusing to provide background information on the personnel move. That doubt is engendered by the statute's use of the vague and indefinite terms, "defeat" and "measures". "He could have pardoned Flynn, which is the ultimate interference by a president of a criminal investigation". The former president resigned in 1974, before impeachment proceedings could begin.

According to the outlet, "gross negligence" is considered a criminal activity when it comes to the mishandling of classified material. If Trump intends to change this dynamic, the nation is due for a nice, long conversation about it. I'd be careful if I were you, Mr. President. It is a restatement of the accusation.

Flynn put those earlier suggestions to rest last week when he pleaded guilty to a felony count of lying to the FBI when he told agents that he and Kislyak had not talked about sanctions against Russia. Perhaps his client will lose confidence in him. On Saturday, Trump decided to throw gasoline on the fire by appearing to admit obstructing justice.

"Clinton lied many times to the FBI, nothing happened to her. Flynn lied and they destroyed his life".

The text of the Constitution doesn't explicitly state whether a president can be prosecuted while in office, so arguments are based on structure and inference. His newest book Anatomy of Failure: Why America Has Lost Every War It Starts is just out.

The argument by Trump's lawyers that he can't obstruct justice, despite the seemingly incriminating tweet, might indicate their anxiety that the president did obstruct justice.

This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.

Flynn arrives for a hearing at U.S. District Court in Washington on Dec. 1. For example, CNN reported on February 17 that "the FBI interviewers believed Flynn was cooperative and provided truthful answers" during the interview.

"It was a bone-headed tweet for a lawyer to send ... so it's a two-pronged attack", he said.

"I feel badly for General Flynn".

The Trump lawyer's defence recalled Nixon's infamous rationale during the 1977 Frost-Nixon interviews, revealing how he perceived presidential powers. The response of the White House the day after the tweet disaster only made the situation worse and, if possible, more bizarre.
