According to former U.S. Deputy Attorney General...
« on: April 28, 2019, 05:34:51 PM »
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former top Justice Department official Sally Yates said on Sunday that if Donald Trump were not president, he would have been indicted on obstruction charges in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation.

Yates, a career federal prosecutor who rose to acting attorney general before Trump fired her in 2017 less than two weeks into his presidency, told NBC's "Meet the Press" the Republican president was shielded by department guidelines that a sitting president should not be indicted.

"I've personally prosecuted obstruction cases on far, far less evidence than this," Yates said. "And yes, I believe, if he were not the president of the United States, he would likely be indicted on obstruction."

President Harry S. Truman said: “The fundamental basis of this nation’s laws was given to Moses on the Mount.  The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings…  If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.”

We can trust her to provide a professional, objective opinion.   Sure we can.

She has more criminal exposure than Trump and hopefully will be going to prison herself.  We'll see what Barr is willing to do.

I have to assume that Fuzz was making an attempt at either sarcasm or humor with this link...otherwise this might be one of the dumber post of the year.
Yates was fired by Trump and up to her eyebrows in a possible criminal referral when the IG report comes out due to her alleged leaks of classified information.
Bias would be an extreme understatement when it comes to Yates opinion of Trump.

None of these opinions matter, at all, if he isn't ever charged.

You can think whatever you want, it's a hypothetical.
