Democrats just can’t catch a break as they continue to be pummeled by the cold hard facts.
Losing a presidential election when their candidate was a polished politician and ours was a billionaire businessman with no proper training came as huge shock. As a form of retaliation for losing an election they were sure to win Democrats have been attacking President Trump in a most unpatriotic manner with little to no remorse for the consequences it has on the country as a whole.
Currently liberals are looking for legal actions against the President for his alleged conversation with former FBI director James Comey. Unfortunately for them experts agree that there is no legal response to the situation.
While the GOP establishment, Democrats, and media have the knives out for President Donald Trump after his firing of ex-FBI Director James Comey—and the subsequent leaks from Comey associates portraying alleged conversations between the two—legal experts are skeptical that there is any case to be made for an “obstruction of justice.” 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.”
In the New York Times, author and professor of constitutional law at Florida International University College of Law Elizabeth Price Foley 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 writes:
Section 1510 of Title 18 of the United States Code addresses obstruction of criminal investigations. It is a narrow statute, criminalizing only willful acts “by means of bribery” that have the effect of obstructing the communication of information about crimes to federal investigators. Even assuming Mr. Comey’s memo is accurate, there is no indication that President Trump willfully attempted to bribe the F.B.I. director. As the Supreme Court stated in United States v. Sun-Diamond Growers of California, “for bribery there must be a quid pro quo — a specific intent to give or receive something of value in exchange for an official act.”
President Trump fired FBI director James Comey for one reason and one reason only.
