Andrew Napolitano: If True, NYT Report Shows Trump's 'Corrupt Intent,' Obstruction Attempt

April FrancisFeb 23, 2019

Although Whitaker disquieted many lawmakers after making many extraordinarily pro-Trump statements, the acting attorney general knew that Berman could not be put in charge since he had just recused himself anyway.

It followed Trump calling the Times "a true enemy of the people" over a story detailing his alleged "two-year war on the investigations encircling him".

"But in demonizing the free press as the enemy, simply for performing its role of asking hard questions and bringing uncomfortable information to light, President Trump is retreating from a distinctly American principle.It's a principle that previous occupants of the Oval Office fiercely defended regardless of their politics, party affiliation, or complaints about how they were covered". The page also includes calendars showing every day on which Trump unleashed his unreasonable rants against this coup attempt by googly-eyed power-mad lunatics.

Reacting to the report, Trump tweeted, "The New York Times reporting is false".

Last April, Mr Trump dumped a legal team that had advised him to co-operate with the investigation and hired former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani as his lawyer. "That is the true meaning of journalism".

Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee are now reportedly investigating whether Whitaker committed perjury after he said the president never lashed out at him over conversations he had regarding cases in New York's Southern District.

If you missed this crack investigative report of investigatory crackedness, it is still available to read at the bottom of a birdcage in my living room, assuming you can make out the words underneath the canary crap.

She then met the German No. 1 Angelique Kerber and once again, she caused a massive upset by knocking her out with 6-4, 2-6, 6-1. I knew she fights all the time so I had to be better than her. "I just look at round per round, and I look at the opponents".

Trump was asked on Tuesday, after the Times story published online, about his reported inquiry to Whitaker.

"More fake news", Trump told reporters.

In a Twitter post on Wednesday, Trump quoted former congressman Trey Gowdy's attacks on McCabe and his assessment that the president may be a Russian agent.

McCabe, a longtime and frequent target of Trump's anger, was sacked on March 2018 by then-U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions - just two days before his planned retirement date. The president has made some statements that I didn't agree with but if you look at the policy towards Russian Federation he's been much harder on Russian Federation than the previous administration.

Mr Trump later tried to pressure Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey into stating Flynn was a good guy.

The Justice Department later issued a statement saying Whitaker stood by earlier testimony to Congress where he denied the White House had ever made any requests of him over any probes.

Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, eventually pleaded guilty to campaign finance law violations that related to his paying one woman and helping orchestrate a payment to another in exchange for their silence in the weeks before the 2016 election.
