Trump can't obstruct justice. Sorry.


But Bill Clinton and Richard Nixon could?

Sorry that was an incomplete thought. The things he's done can't be obstruction of justice. He's exercised his authority as chief executive.

He doesn't have the authority to lie under oath or destroy evidence but he does have the authority to tell the FBI what to investigate and to fire the FBI director.

So

Q: If you, as part of your role as the director of the FBI (i.e. the "top man") meet with the president of the United States, in the White House, that meeting is an official visit, is it not?

A: Yes. It is a visit done while representing the FBI. Therefore any and all notes or documented accounts are the property of the FBI. They are not personal property.

Had this been a social meeting, somewhere out of any official setting, then any notes or documented accounts would be personal property. However, depending upon the jurisdiction within which the meeting takes place, notification of taking notes or recording the meeting are likely needed to be legal.

So, these notes, regardless of their content, were improperly removed from the FBI, and was an illegal act.

Comey should face charges for that act IMO.

That's what Nixon said too............"If the President does it, it's not illegal". He was wrong, and so are you.

He gave one to a friend. He admitted this under oath.

That would be some sweet, sweet irony if he was actually punished for breaking the same law he excused Clinton from.



Pal, everyone is breaking the law.

It is just that some of us are "excused", while others are "punished."

It pays to have friends in high places.

It is a biblical thing. And the reason why Jesus says,



And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but perceivest not the beam that is in thine own eye? -- KJV, Luke 6:41

So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. -- KJV, John 8:7



So, in our society, the person with the most powerful political friends can afford to "cast the biggest stones."

No, I'm not. Nixon got himself in hot water by stepping outside his authority. Trump hasn't done that

Clinton stepped outside his authority as well.

The real lesson, is that you must have "friends" to survive.

That's why these guys often join the Freemasons.

The one without friends, is just bait.

I am beginning to think some people are taking the Comey incidents much too far into wooville in order to defend them.

Credibility is disappearing at a rate unseen since Jaime Maussan booked a stadium in Mexico to announce a fuzzy picture of a mummy was, in fact, an alien.

Comey admitted to leaking information. Whether, technically it was legal or not is irrelevant.

Director of the FBI...LEAKED INFORMATION!

Comey also said that he sent our copies of the memos, as they were generated to the heads of other intel community offices, like the CIA and NSA. Was that also illegal, in you opinion?

By the time Comey is said to have given the memo to his friend to leak to the press, Comey was no longer employed by the FBI. Does he qualify for federal whistle blower protection?

That's your opinion. It wasn't Nixon's opinion at the time. If the allegations against Trump are true, then he did indeed step outside his authority.

Classified information DOES NOT fall under the whistle blower act. You agree to that when you sign your forms to get your clearance.

If that is done as part of the role of the director of the FBI, as in information sharing amongst the varied agencies, then no.

The notes should have NEVER left the grounds of the FBI building(s)....period. They were never his to take with him. They were never his property. Before or after his employment...especially after. As for whistle blower status, there are specific rules in place you must follow in order to qualify for that status. I do not think he followed those procedures, but I have not looked into it at this point. I believe someone here at ATS has done that legwork already, as I vaguely remember seeing a post of that type in one of the previous threads on this topic.

Maybe he dictated the notes while driving his car away from the White House. He said he did it while everything was fresh in his mind.

His sworn testimony, under oath is considered proof. I (and many others here) saw and heard his testimony broadcast live, with my own eyes and ears. And, I am sure it is all online somewhere for you to watch and learn as well. Perhaps you should spend some time looking for and watching that video if you doubt those here making this statement?

You also swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States.

And are therefore obligated to leak any info that might reveal that others are not doing the same.

Since the U.S. Constitution is "The Supreme Law" of the land, any actions taken to protect that law is protected by it, and superceeds any lesser laws about classified information that might exist.

You cannot use the idea of "Classified Information" to help undermine the "Constitution."

You cannot hide behind "Classified Actions" to subvert the "Constitution."

Does not matter. The content of the meeting was still official business and not his property. Heck, if you want t split hairs, then if he used FBI materials (laptop, phone, voice recorder, pen/pencil and paper) to record those notes, then even the media used was not his property.
