He thought he had gotten Comey to pledge loyalty when Comey gave in on honest loyalty.

The Grandfather Clock is where the mystery is.



He mentions that Grandfather Clock more than once.


Priebus did it with the gavel by the Grandfather clock.

Yep which is what Trump confirmed he wanted - according to Comey.

We can only go on what the history books tell us,


I will remember this if you ever play the "the victors write the history" card.

Good idea - especially as in this story, you'll certainly be on the losing side.

It is impossible to obstruct justice on a counter intelligence investigation - it only applies to criminal investigations.


And what happens when the counterintelligence investigation produces evidence of criminal acts...?


At that point they can start a criminal investigation - and if that investigation gets interfered with - than it would be Obstruction of Justice.

In other words nothing that has happened up to this point could be obstruction - it would have to be a new act of obstruction to a criminal investigation.

What term applies to what President Trump did, since it was not a "criminal" investigation, involving Michael Flynn?

I believe the investigations of Paul Manafort and Mike Flynn are both criminal.

So you're cool with the President of the United States trying to prevent the Department of Justice with investigating a Russian agent? Noted.

When we first heard about this document, or documents, " ATS Team Trump Extraordinaire" vehemently denied there were documents. Remember that? There were no documents, many of you said. It was 'fake news".

Well, here they are, and you claim now the documents and testimony are somehow a vindication? Sorry, not in this timeline.

There is no vindication, but nor is there a conviction.

However, last time I checked if you rob a bank, and make the excuse that you didn't know it was illegal, the crime still counts.



Robbing a bank is entirely different. Poor analogy. In the case of whether this was obstruction of justice, 'no conviction' is vindication. Sorry, your hopes of obstruction of justice are dead unless Comey drops something else tomorrow. Get over it.


Yawn.


Do you ever change your rhetoric? Even a little to try keep it interesting? Just a smidgeon?

Please provide proof that Flynn is a Russian agent.

People hear what they want to hear, Trump is no different. Trump likes to surround himself with yes men yet his people working with him at the White house are actually stronger willed than he is, he won't challenge some of them too much. Comey has a strong will and that is why Trump let him go, he wants more of a puppet in that job. His new appointee is no puppet either though. But Comey was more meek with Trump, he got stomped on, the new guy will butt heads with trump I think, and trump respects people who like to butt heads once in a while. I know a few people like Trump, they aren't bad. They actually respect me pretty well because I don't bow down to them.

If you want to be entertained with nonsense about obstruction of justice, when there is nothing that warrants it, then I can't help you. A healthy dose of realism that your hopes in that regard are dead unless Comey says something new is good for you, despite lacking the entertainment factor that you are after.

Stop it. A criminal investigation is not necessarily required for there to be obstruction. The act of attempting to impede an official investigation is criminalized. Sarbanes-Oxley was modified by Congress to allow for this.

Ya know, if he had just left it at "I need loyalty" rather than adding "I expect loyalty". That doesn't bode well.

If someone said that to me, I would notice the hidden "or else".

A. He did not try to stop it. Hoping comey lets it go is not stopping it.

B. There is zero proof whatsoever Flynn is a Russian agent.

So no I would not be cool with it, but it has not happened.
