With Trump being officially investigated for Obstruction of Justice, will he survive the ordeal?


Today the Washington Post revealed--through 5 separate sources--Bob Mueller is officially investigating Trump for Obstruction of Justice. The last two Senate interviews with Trumps's cabinet members had them try a cute trick of not answering important questions despite not claiming Executive Privilege. Even though Trump knew they were going to be questioned, he didn't claim EP because they'd agreed to stall the investigation. Now Mueller can demand answers despite any claim of EP, as well as, go through DT's taxes with a fine toothed comb. What say you Trump defenders and protagonists?

    Don't think you ought to wait until he is actually being investigated. What prompted this was the untrue assertion that he was under investigation. But even CNN corrected that and said "may be investigated". Sounds like lynch mob mentality.

    That is really cute. Does anyone really believe that constituents have a smidgen of influence in these current investigatory matters. Maybe party funding models and maybe lobbyists - but you? Lawyers are far more influential here.

    All the sensational allegations and representations coming out of those to sources is scary. There simply is no official investigation about obstruction at all. Make up fake news.

    Interesting Ralph as Sessions used it to recuse. Mueller hid it from his boss. His employer is Trump. He has to immediately report the conflict to his supervisor. But we note that Mueller has not stated that obstruction is an investigation so no need

    I was looking for any confirmation out of Mueller's office.None. CNN headline "may" investigate. 5 anonymous sources. Can't find a single 18 USC section that covers Chief Executive telling subordinates what to do. Not even for self interest.Fake?

    Are we all children? Not noticing nuance? No side being taken here. But isn't the American public kind of tired of "truth be spoken here" when when for everyone it is lies. You lie and I lie and the wind blows. Who cares?

    I know what you mean, Chris. The real patriots will make themselves known before long. The greedy politicians will be apparent as well. There's always good that comes from disaster, and this will be no different.

    When the truth comes out, a lot of republicans are going down with him, because they knew. And they profitted. The feds are looking at his techie now. Word on twitter is he and jared worked with russia on the anti-hillary bots that ran the internet.

    From one who has had personal experience with DT, your opinion is very important, CP. Fortunately for me, I saw him for what he was many years before he decided to run for POTUS. Down here in the south he'd be called a "Snake oil salesman."
