Donald  Trump’s own words, verbal and written, his behavior and intent, he Trump may have very well convicted himself; as defined in the omnibus clause of 18 U.S.C. § 1503

 

“Obstruction of justice is defined in the omnibus clause of 18 U.S.C. § 1503, which provides that “whoever . . . . corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be (guilty of an offense).” Persons are charged under this statute based on allegations that a defendant intended to interfere with an official proceeding, by doing things such as destroying evidence, or interfering with the duties of jurors or court officers.

 

A person obstructs justice when they have a specific intent to obstruct or interfere with a judicial proceeding. For a person to be convicted of obstructing justice, they must not only have the specific intent to obstruct the proceeding, but the person must know (1) that a proceeding was actually pending at the time; and (2) there must be a nexus between the defendant’s endeavor to obstruct justice and the proceeding, and the defendant must have knowledge of this nexus.

 

  • 1503 applies only to federal judicial proceedings. Under § 1505, however, a defendant can be convicted of obstruction of justice by obstructing a pending proceeding before Congress or a federal agency. A pending proceeding could include an informal investigation by an executive agency.” [Legal Information Institute]

The Media Is Not “Fake News,” However; Almost All Of The Media Work For The Same Owner, “Mr. Avarice Mendacity”

 

“The present state of the US Economy and the good jobs report, all of the “Credit Still Goes To President Obama, however, “The Media Credits Donald Trump, even though that despite Trump and Republicans are in Control of the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, they haven’t passed a single legislation, other than Trump’s unhinged Executive Orders.

 

The only accomplishments by Trump and Republicans have at this time are; Scandals, Lying, Obstruction Of Justice, Treason, Take Away People’s Health Insurance and give Trillion Dollar Tax Break to the Rich, they all add up to be Parasitic Parasites.” [Sheriff Gerry Ali]

 

[Media] “The economy is emerging as a bright spot for President Trump as he struggles to move his congressional agenda amid a series of controversies.

 

The S&P 500 is up more than 12 percent since Election Day, unemployment has reached a 16-year low and economic growth in the coming year is expected to reach 2.3 percent, more robust growth than the 1.6 percent it grew in 2016.

 

Trump sought to play up his handling of the economy again on Friday at an event to end a week meant to highlight his efforts on legislation to fund new infrastructure projects across the country.

 

“We are here to think big, to act boldly, and to rise above the petty partisan squabbling of Washington, D.C. We are here to take action. It’s time to start building in our country, with American workers and with American iron and aluminum and steel,” Trump said in a speech at the Department of Transportation.

 

 

Trump has often gotten in his own way when it comes to publicizing his handling of the economy.

 

This was supposed to be the administration’s “infrastructure week,” but it was almost entirely overshadowed by the appearance by fired FBI Director James Comey at the Senate Intelligence Committee.

 

The controversy surrounding Comey’s firing has led to a new drop in the polls for Trump, whose approval rating in the Real Clear Politics average is just 39 percent, with 55 percent expressing disapproval.

 

After James Comey’s testimony eclipsed Trump’s planned infrastructure week, he and first daughter Ivanka Trump will embark on a road show this week highlighting workforce development and job creation in the Midwest, including new German-style apprenticeship initiatives. http://thehill.com/policy/finance/337203-economy-emerges-as-bright-spot-for-trump

Donald Trump Resizing U.S. Role As World Leader To The Size Of His Frigging Peanut Brain, Enabled By Republican Traitors

“Trump has been an awful disgusting, lying, corrupt thieving swindler all of his life and Trump has taken this vulgar crooked life into the White House. The only thing worse than Trump are the Top Republican Leaders and other Republicans in Congress that are enabling Trump to drag America into the same category as Nicaragua and Syria. Just Imagine, 194 Countries stands with the Paris Climate Accord and Donald Trump, backed up by many Republicans pulled America into a category of 3 countries rejecting perhaps the most significant World Agreement ever enacted.

 

It seems self evident that the only reason why Republicans are assisting Trump in dismantling America is because they are Neck Deep with Trump in the Russian Money Scandal. It is accurate to say that Republicans have chosen Corruption before Country!” [Sheriff Gerry Ali]

 

[Los Angeles Times] WASHINGTON — “President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the historic Paris climate accord is the most concrete sign yet that his “America first” approach to foreign policy has begun to disrupt the global order and ultimately could cede Washington’s dominant role on the world stage to China. For arguably the first time since Washington built a web of military, trade and diplomatic alliances from the ruins of World War II, and assumed sole superpower status after the Cold War, a president has thumbed his nose at virtually the entire world — allies and adversaries alike — to follow a go-it-alone strategy in international affairs.

 

Trump’s recent overseas trip left bruised feelings in Europe, especially after he failed to acknowledge the portion of the NATO charter that declares an attack on one member is an attack on all. It appeared a startling repudiation of staunch allies that invoked the charter to back U.S. troops in Afghanistan after the 2001 terrorist attacks. But his retreat on climate change — even if the commitments in the 194-nation Paris accord were voluntary and the U.S. already has cut emissions significantly thanks to shale gas technology and more efficient cars — clearly marks a new chapter in U.S. foreign policy, one likely to ripple around the world.” Open Los Angles Times Link For This Factual Amazing Article:
