Some Democrats have started to call for impeachment procedures, despite President Trump proving he was free and clear of any investigation.
Their absurd new claim revolves around President Trump and his Twitter activity, claiming Trump obstructed justice when tweeting about the Comey investigation.
Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, claimed there was “absolutely evidence to begin a case” for obstruction of justice by Trump.
In an interview with ABC’s “This Week”, former U.S. Attorney Bharara spoke about Trump’s actions on Twitter interfering with the Comey case.
Breitbart News reported:
BHARARA: On the other hand, I think a lot of people will tell you that the president himself sometimes makes accusations that turn out not to be true. I think he seems to have done that in a Tweet this morning.
And when it comes down to who’s telling the truth and who’s not, I think most people would side reasonably with James Comey.
STEPHANOPOULOS: You talked about the Tweets. The president did put out a Tweet this morning. I want to put it up on the screen right now. “I believe the James Comey leaks will be far more prevalent than anyone ever thought possible. Totally illegal. Very cowardly.”
What’s the lie there?
BHARARA: There’s a — there’s speculation and an accusation that there are other leaks and that’s going to come out at some point in the future. I think there have been other accusations that are made in a haphazard and unsubstantiated way by the president, including that his office was tapped or wiretapped and no evidence of that has ever materialized.
He suggested on at least one occasion that maybe he had recorded conversations, refuses to answer questions about her or not that is true.
But I think the point is that accusations made in the heat of the moment in 140 characters on Twitter, based on the track record and history, are not to be taken very seriously.
STEPHANOPOULOS: The president’s defenders, like Alan Dershowitz, say there’s no grounds for obstruction. You talked about that. And he, in fact, says that presidents have the constitutional right to fire FBI directors and investigations as much as they want.
One of the president’s attorneys, Jay Sekulow, is coming up next. He says there’s no there there, no basis for obstruction.
You are a former prosecutor. Is there evidence there that — to begin a case for obstruction?
BHARARA: I think there’s absolutely evidence to begin a case. 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 I think from based on what I see as a third party and out of government that there’s no basis to say there’s no obstruction.
Bharara is absurdly claiming that because Trump tweeted about the results of the Comey case, he was obstructing justice.
What the interview failed to mention, however, is that Bharara was also fired earlier this year by President Trump, and he may be trying to denounce the President out of spite.
Trump’s lawyers promise there are no grounds for charges revolving around obstruction of justice, nor was the President wrong in any way by tweeting.
Democrats seem to come up with any excuse they can to get what they want, despite the consequences.
Do you think President Trump did anything wrong by tweeting about the Comey investigation?
