High profile attorney Andrew McCarthy, who took down Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman (the ’93 World Trade Center Bomber) and other eminent cases, really slams the FBI for their illegal conduct against Trump.
From an opinion piece that McCarty wrote a few days ago for Fox, he states that since 2016, the investigations of the FBI, DOJ have always been about Trump, no matter who they ensnared in their trap.
“Comey’s firing on May 9, 2017, was not the start of an investigation of Trump. It was the point when the FBI and Justice Department rashly determined that they finally had a crime to pin on Trump — obstruction. In their haste and overconfidence, they rationalized that (a) Comey’s firing must have been intended to impede the Russia investigation, and that they could couple this with; (b) the claim that Trump may have impeded the Flynn investigation – based on a memo Comey leaked to the New York Times a few days after his firing.
Legally, none of this was obstruction. Yet, the FBI and Justice Department settled on this novel and flawed legal theory: Even though the president has constitutional authority to fire subordinates and weigh in on investigations, he may somehow still be prosecuted for obstruction if a prosecutor concludes that his motive was improper. Of course, even though he could have, Trump never actually took any steps to interfere in the investigations of Russia (which is still continuing) or Flynn (who later was indicted and pled guilty). Yet the FBI, hot-headed over the director’s dismissal, concluded that this obstruction theory was a sound enough basis to go overt with the case on Trump they had actually been trying to make for many months.”
Alan M. Dershowitz [Democrat] who is the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus, at Harvard Law School. His new book is “The Case Against the Democratic House Impeaching Trump”, has commented on this investigation many times and believes as well, it is a witch hunt and always been about Trump.
Judge Thomas Ellis, of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District, said last year that Paul Manafort “was punished to squeeze him to talk against Trump”, Dershowitz said, and he agrees.
“You don’t need me and McCarthy to make it,” Dershowitz said. “You have a judge making it. It is self-evidently true. All these other people are collateral damage to squeeze them to get incriminating evidence against President Trump. That’s the way they often operate. It is a core violation of civil liberties.”
If we are supposed to have a free justice system without prejudice, we have a real problem, as there are plenty of truly guilty parties currently walking around who have been involved in this case and who have lied to get what they want!
