World class jowly frowners

We’re learning all sorts of important new legal theories from the Republicans this week, starting with Donald Trump’s dumb lawyer John Dowd and his insistence that the president of the USA can’t actually obstruct justice. The thinking goes like this: Donald Trump is the nation’s top law enforcement guy, so if Trump told James Comey not to look at the Trump campaign and transition staff’s contacts with Russia, then that’s just a law enforcer setting law enforcement priorities. No different than a police chief ordering a cop to take that breathalyzer away at a traffic stop. OK, not the best analogy. But the real point is, by grace of his position at the top of the law enforcement food chain, a president just can’t obstruct justice.

Funny thing! When Attorney General Jeff Sessions (vomit) was still a mere member of the Senate, that particular legal assessment of whether a president could obstruct justice didn’t seem to occur to him, at least not when it came to Bill Clinton. In 1999, Sessions said in an interview on C-Span,

I hope that he can rebut that and prove that did not happen. I hope he can show that he did not commit obstruction of justice and that he can complete his term. But there are serious allegations that that occurred.

Not a word about Clinton being immune there thanks to his being the nation’s top law enforcer, though, to be sure, Clinton never fired an FBI director who was investigating him. (He fired William Sessions, who wasn’t investigating him, but kept Louis Freeh — who was.)

Then when Sessions voted to remove Clinton from office — on, among other charges, one count of obstruction of justice — Sessions noted Clinton’s status as the nation’s top law enforcer. But in Sessions’s assessment at the time, that didn’t make Clinton immune from obstructing justice; it made him even worse!

It has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt and to a moral certainty that President William Jefferson Clinton perjured himself before a federal grand jury and has persisted in a continuous pattern of lying and obstructing justice. The chief law enforcement officer of the land, whose oath of office calls on him to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution, crossed the line and failed to defend and protect the law, and, in fact, attacked the law and the rights of a fellow citizen.

Again, maybe it’s obstruction when a president lies — yes, under oath — about where his peener has consensually been, but not obstruction when a president tries to get the FBI director to stop looking into a general lying to the FBI, and then fires that FBI director for not dropping the investigation. If only Bill Clinton had fired Ken Starr to stop the investigation into his blowjobs, then he might have availed himself of the Dowd Defense.

Then we have Lindsey Graham, who insisted that Michael Flynn’s guilty plea on a charge of lying to the FBI had no larger implications for the Trump/Russia investigation, since, Graham explained on “Face the Nation” this weekend, “what Flynn lied about is not a crime.” Graham didn’t try to say lying to the FBI wasn’t a crime, mind you, but the thing he lied about? No big:

I don’t think it’s wrong for a transition person to talk to a foreign government about change in policy. I don’t think the Logan Act is worth the paper it’s written on.

Now, before the election, that would be another matter, said Graham. Collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians would be very, very bad, he explained, but once Trump was elected — but not yet in office — it was probably just fine for Flynn to contact Russia to make plans for a beautiful future of peace and harmony and cooperation, also lifting sanctions, please, even if Barack Obama was technically still president.

Of course, Bill Clinton lied about something that wasn’t a crime, either, but that was serious business, which is why Graham pushed for Bill Clinton to be impeached in the House, then served as one of the Republican impeachment managers during the Senate trial, which nonetheless acquitted Clinton. Even so, Graham used his role in the impeachment trial as fodder for his reelection in 1998, to prove that he was the candidate of Law And Order. At a town hall early in his reelection campaign, Graham said the point is all about asking the hard questions:

“It’s a time for the country as a whole to understand what went on here and where we’re going to go,” Mr. Graham said. ”What are the consequences of this case? What do you do with the next Federal judge who has got wandering hands in the office and someone’s got the courage to say, ‘No, you shouldn’t treat me that way,’ and he starts hiding evidence and getting others to lie for him — what do we do with that case?”

Yes, Graham was talking about hypothetical sex-criming, not election-messing with a foreign government. But now, he seems a little less worried about a president who’s hiding evidence and had people lying for him. Wonder why that might be?

    Okay, it’s a good time for this question, which has been niggling at me: IS the President the ‘nation’s top law enforcement officer’? Where in the Constitution would it say that?

  • ariel_gee_398

    Eventually, Trump will lie about some of his sex crimes, possibly under oath if Summer Zervos’s lawsuit is allowed to proceed. And then Republicans will claim even that is NBD.

    In related news, Donald Trump’s other crap attorney, Marc Kasowitz, tried to argue today that the lawsuit should be tossed because Trump is just too darn busy. I suspect all the plaintiff will need to do to rebut that argument is ask the judge to take notice of Trump’s golf schedule and Twitter feed.

      Banking records are confidential, so I don’t think a financial institution is a position to comment to anyone other than the account holder one way or the other.

      Additionally, many reports on suspected financial crimes – say, suspicious activity reports – are confidential FROM the account holder. A teller can’t tell a customer that a cash deposit of $20,000 is going to be reported.

      I don’t know the law regarding the alleged subpoena of the Trump financial records – I haven’t been a bank compliance officer for many years, and when I was it was on the loan side. However, as outlined above, It isn’t hard to see that any bank would clam up rather than blab about it.

      The very concept of corruption is alien to him. For Trump, there is no higher authority in the universe than his own ego.

        He can still call something corruption. Which, for him, is anything he disagrees with.

        I don’t think he actually even understands the concept of intent. He is stuck in that state of childhood development where he doesn’t yet comprehend that other people have their own view of the world separate from his. In other words, there are only two categories: Trump (and What is Good For Trump) vs. Everything Else.

        Well, I’d say id, but… yeah

    • Blanche de Shambles

      Oh, I think they’re aware.

      They’re just fucking hypocrites.

      • Cornelius Fussbudget

        Exactly. Hence my distinction between willful ignorance (e.g. McConnell, Ryan, Grassley) and actual ignorance (e.g. Trump, house pets, small rocks).

      • Cat Cafe

        If by “hypocrites” you mean “foul, venal liars,” then I totally agree

    • TundraGrifter

      Without corrupt intent, pore Mr. Trump just won’t have any intent at all.

      We hates the Clintonses!

    D’you s’pose Mueller could protect his investigation by loudly announcing “I am ‘vestigating consensual blowjobbing with interns in the White House!” ?

    Republicans would just eat that up, right?

    • Vagenda and Pee-ara

      Figure out a way to work the name Clinton in there, and you’ve got a winner on your hands!

      • Amy!

        *sob* Subtweeting no longer counts?!? Unfair! Biggest crowds! SAD!

        Hey, you. LTNS, and like that. Doing okay? Life really sucks, sometimes, don’t it?

    Miss Lindsay seems to have a couple of different standards for bringing out the fainting couch.

  • TundraGrifter

    There is some precedent for this. The Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare is a complete dumbass.

  • An Outhouse for the résistance

    Fuck Lindsey. He’s such a cowardly lying piece of shit.

    • Damian L

      That’s why Johnny Reb loves him.

    • mailman27

      Lucy w/the football’s got nothing on Graham and McCain. Couple of hosebags.

  • Viktor

    Jeff’s selective memory will fit in nicely with the folks at Shady Acres Rest Home.

  • Jeff Mc Donald

    I think I’ve got it now. It seems, and I admit I could be way off base here, but the indications are that some things are only illegal when liberal types of people do them, Now, that isn’t to say that the Nixon doctrine of, “If the President does it, that means it’s not illegal.”, shouldn’t also apply here…for conservatives. I guess that we should all just accept that those are the rules and go see if the Kardashians are on the teevee!

    • BrendaKay

      By George, I think you’ve got it!

    • Nasty Girl Brianna

      You don’t mean a… a… GASP! DOUBLE STANDARD???!

      • ez

        Double Standard trumps objective reality.

    • roberteye

      Yeah, Franken=Moore, and must resign. Moore=Trump, and must be elected to the Senate because Democratic alternative worse than pedophilia (at least in ‘bammy), as emails were worse than pussy grabbing.

  • Relativicus

    I think I’m enjoying Graham’s turn towards Trump lickspittle because he’s picked the worst point (to date) in the investigation to do so.

  • azeyote

    was the lindsey talking about a future trump with that groping, hiding evidence , and getting others to lie for you rant?

    • RepubAnon

      Probably referring to Roy Moore

  • Zyxomma

    IOKIYAR I guess.

  • EER

    The federal government has turned into the smarmy little government of my home town, full of grifters and nephews and drunks, pedophiles and, the women who try to keep the whole thing together because they know how to type, use a database, balance the checkbook, access the internet, start up the coffeemaker, answer the phone, lock the cash drawer, treat their fellow citizens with respect, and lock the door behind them.

  • More_Cowbell

    It seems to me that Lindsey got some information that he didn’t care for (and didn’t want passed on to the American public) when he joined Trump for a golf outing in October. So now he’s toeing the line.

      Hypocrisy. Imagine that!

  • UpstateNYObserver

    Sessions and Graham; two of the most closeted guys this side of an ISIS stronghold.

  • Lily412

    Every time I think I might have a shred of respect for Lindsey Graham…
    I’ll just keep trying to vote him out of office, I guess. For all the good it does.
