"Dershowitz who is no trump fan and a lifelong democrat liberal had this to say when when asked uh uh are we on the path to a case of obstruction of justice against donald trump no i don't at i think if congress ever to were to charge him with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional authority under article two we'd have a constitutional crisis you cannot charger president with obstruction of justice for exercising his constitutional power to fire colmey and his constitutional authority to tell the justice department who to investigate who not to investigate that's what thomas jefferson did that's what lincoln did that's what roosevelt did we have precedents that clearly established that when george bush the first pardon casper weinberger in order to end the investigation that would have led to him nobody suggests that obstruction of justice for obstruction justice by the president unique clearly legal acts with nixon hush money paid telling people to ally destroying evidence even with clinton they said that he tried to influence potential witnesses not to tell the truth but there's never been a case in history where a president has been charged with obstruction of justice for merely exercising his constitutional authority that would cause a constitutional crisis in the united states and i hope muller doesn't do that and senator feinstein simply doesn't know what she's talking about when she says its obstruction of justice to do what a president.

"We're going to bring it down to earth after we talk go up it gets sat in a minute what what collusion would mean specifically as a reflexive as a related trump was that someone in the trump campaign light jared kushner had been in contact with the russians and provided them guidance maybe through the data firm owned by the mercer's that jared kushner hired about where in when to deploy the trolls in the hack emails and everything so if there's any contact with suggested they wanted to work together and we know they did because they took a fucking meeting with a russian spy in order to get information on hillary and if donald trump knew of any of that then he would be guilty on many of many crimes right all which leave after collusion and perhaps flynn who worked on the campaign also would have known yes who leno is us weirdly close to the russians czar deserve it's so coincidental manafort flynn all these russian conduct so the other big one this is the one i always think is most likely is an obstruction justice charge and win the flynn plead today should remind us of this because remember after flynn was fired for lying about his contacts with russia nhs trump famously said to colmey called up as fbi director said i hope you can see your way clear to letting this go to letting flynn go he is a good guy okay did you guys see this story about these two guys they're twins and they did a mafi a mafiastyle killing and they hit somebody to death with a hammer and then attaches cinderblock to his feet through in the water but they didn't do a good job so he floated up and they found the guy with a cinderblock attached to his feet with a bunch of hammer hits to his head they pull over these two brothers and in the trunk they find a bloody hammer.
