Did Trump do anything wrong?

The appointment of a Special Counsel and efforts to remove him. On May 17, 2017, the

Acting Attorney General for the Russia investigation appointed a Special Counsel to conduct the

investigation and related matters. The President reacted to news that a Special Counsel had been

appointed by telling advisors that it was "the end of his presidency" and demanding that Sessions

resign. Sessions submitted his resignation, but the President ultimately did not accept it. The

President told aides that the Special Counsel had conflicts of interest and suggested that the Special

Counsel therefore could not serve. The President's advisors told him the asserted conflicts were

meritless and had already been considered by the Department of Justice.

On June 14, 2017, the media reported that the Special Counsel's Office was investigating

whether the President had obstructed justice. Press reports called this "a major turning point" in

the investigation: while Corney had told the President he was not under investigation, following

Corney's firing, the President now was under investigation. The President reacted to this news

with a series of tweets criticizing the Department of Justice and the Special Counsel's

investigation. On June 17, 2017, the President called McGahn at home and directed him to call

the Acting Attorney General and say that the Special Counsel had conflicts of interest and must be

removed. McGahn did not carry out the direction, however, deciding that he would

Update:

Update 7:

Jennifer Rodgers, a former federal prosecutor who is now a legal analyst for CNN, told network anchor Brooke Baldwin on Monday that the "obstruction case against the president is an easily chargeable and easily provable case that would have been brought against anyone else."

    Mueller did have conflicts of interest.

    He had had business dealings with Trump that turned sour for some reason. He might still hold a grudge.

    Also, Mueller was himself involved with the Russians. He took a sample of uranium to Russia for it to be assessed before the Obama government sold off 20% of the vital defence raw material to someone they claim is their worst enemy. So it is likely that he would not be looking too deeply into that.

    Mueller's bias was confirmed when he hired a total of 18 Democrats to pursue the investigation. No bias there!

    Apart from the obstruction of justice Mueller knows full well that Trump colluded, he just couldn’t find sufficient evidence, but it will come out sooner or later! And what a coincidence, Trump publicly asks the Russians to hack Clinton’s emails and within a few hours the GRU went to it!!!

    The Trump campaign had 225 DOCUMENTED contacts with Russian operatives, 37 meetings, 3 of which were with personnel directly linked to the Kremlin! ALL of which they tried to lie about and cover up!!!

    Small wonder he is trying to stop people from testifying isn’t it?

    Barr is acting like Trumps personal lawyer, and why they didn’t question his actions at his confirmation hearings regarding the Iran - Contra scandal where Barr got Bush senior to pardon Casper Weinberger to stop him from testifying against Bush is beyond me! They even nicknamed him the cover - up general for God’s sake!

    This is the most corrupt and shambolic administration in US history!!!
