President Donald Trump said this Friday morning that he was “being investigated” for firing FBI Director James Comey “by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director.” His comments clearly indicate he is in panic mode, as I will outline below.
First of all, the “fake news” media does not hate it when Trump uses his social media, it loves it. He constantly contradicts himself, like he did today and on multiple other occasions. He also offers up a lot of controversy, like when he called Obama a wiretapper.
Second, calling all these investigations a witch hunt, is a further attack on the intelligence community.
He just doesn’t get that his poor treatment of the intelligence community is what landed him in this situation in the first place.
By saying the intelligence community is conducting a witch hunt, he is literally saying that these professional investigators are intentionally wasting their time on nonsense, that they are so bad at their jobs, that they cannot identify that an investigation is a witch hunt.
Third, Trump is apparently trying to blame Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein when he says he’s, “being investigated by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director.”
That was the official story at first after Trump fired Comey, but then he said it was entirely his decision when he spoke with NBC’s Lester Holt. But now he’s back to accusing his own Deputy Attorney General of engaging in a witch hunt.
Trump must be fearing prison, as in general, federal obstruction of justice is punishable by up to five years in prison.
He is trying to come up with any way to avoid prison. I believe he is attacking Rosenstein because he is planning on firing him and trying to kill this investigation.
Multiple legal experts have said that there is a strong case here, so if this goes to trial, it’s not looking good for Trump.
