Reprehensible conduct against a public servant,“ and he was arrested and charged with the offense. A year later, he agreed to resign from the office of the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
As we’ve written, the White House, in the weeks leading up to Trump’s swearing in, made similar efforts to undermine the Senate’s ability to conduct oversight proceedings. On Jan. 20, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced that he was dropping the investigation into Flynn’s business dealings and that he was resigning as special counsel. Shortly thereafter, Rosenstein ordered that „any and all investigative materials and records“ be released to the public.
But according to an account in the New York Times, Rosenstein was still working on the Flynn indictment when Flynn agreed to plead guilty. At one point in the process, in February 2018, Rosenstein held one of the first meetings of his own to discuss Flynn with Mueller. At this point, Trump seemed to understand that his actions on Flynn „could create a firestorm“ for Mueller, whom Trump had been personally criticizing for the Flynn probe.
On February 16, the next day, Mueller’s team handed Flynn a plea agreement and ordered him to appear before a grand jury and submit to questions. On March 1, after the Flynn plea deal was signed, Trump fired Mueller.

First, Trump and his supporters have shown a willingness to manipulate public perception in order to defend 전립선 마사지him.
Trump’s supporters have attempted to downplay any connection between the alleged Russian role and his firing of Flynn. Trump himself has gone as far as to call them „fake news.“ He also claimed that the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference into the election „really doesn’t exist.“ In these and other interviews with supporters, Trump said that Flynn had pleaded guilty „to a crime he didn’t commit.“
This is not about how one individual’s conduct is relevant to a broader case. A federal prosecutor who investigates allegations of corruption and other misdeeds should investigate all possible facts aXO 카지노nd evidence of criminal conduct. Yet in these and other interview sessions, Trump has used the charge of obstruction of justice to defend himself. (In a recent column at the New York Daily N우리카지노계열ews, Robert Draper argued that there was not a „smoking gun“ that shows Trump committed obstruction of justice.)
