Trump Says He Will Declassify All Docs
He has said this before. By the reaction the Progs either don’t believe he will or there is no there there.
Earlier, I was forced to watch some CNN, where there was mass impeachment orgasming. It was a little scary. Do you know what I told myself?
I cheered myself with my vision of a Worst Case Scenario. If Trump gets impeached somehow, HE WILL HAVE ZERO REASON TO STAY QUIET ABOUT THE WORKINGS OF THE CORRUPT OLIGARCHY ABUSING THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
At 6:00 in the video, Trump says he thinks he has to release the docs.
You feel that Trump cannot pardon anyone convicted in NY.
Which other states do you feel presidential pardons are not possible in?
All of the states. The President only has pardon power over convictions in federal courts for federal crimes.
Unfortunately he didn't realize it was not a moon but a Zeta Reticulan monitoring station.
I always wondered....
But if all those cases are based on tainted, false, fruit of the poisonous tree, evidence, then all those cases are tossed.
THAT is a very strange pic. Not even considering the shadow to foreground comparison.
Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution states as follows:
The President shall have the power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States.
As I said, the Presidents power of pardon only applies to offenses against the United States as a whole not to offenses against an individual state or locality.
Someone educate me. Can trump alone appoint a special counsel?
Rosenstein alone could appoint a special counsel. Trump outranks Rosenstein.
The phrase "offenses against the United States" means federal crimes, as opposed to offenses against the several states.
At the time the Constitution was adopted, the "United States" was a plural noun. It took Lincoln and the Civil War to convert it to a singular noun. With many good effects and some bad effects.
The AG can appoint a SC. The AG works for the POTUS. The POTUS can instruct his AG to appoint a SC.
Oh, except all that is only valid when a democrat is in the WH it seems. When a Republican is in the WH he is framed and railroaded by the establishment in DC.
He got word that Mueller is going to take Don jr off the streets.
Trump never declares he will declassify documents. Never. That is a lie.
At 6:00 in the video, President Trump says, “At the right time, I think I might have to do the documents”.
Not, “I will”. But “I think I might”.
“Might” is optional. No commitment there.
“I think”. He may think something else tomorrow.
As usual, Trump is just negotiating. He is just floating a trial balloon to see how it plays on both sides of the fence It doesn’t mean spit. It is a Trumpism.
For a Freeper to hear that quot and then post a unequivocal, declarative statement that Trump will “declassify all documents” is misleading at best and a bald faced lie at worst. I will chalk it up to an over exuberant Freeper and assume he wasn’t trying to be a sensationalist who’s ego wanted him to be breaking big news.
I missed a third disqualifier in the short quote.
What does “at the right time” mean. Trump could mean, he will declassify documents only after Congress brings him up on impeachment. And if that never happens, then he won’t.
We have no clue what President Trump means by...
“at the right time”
That is a hell of a lot of disclaimers for an article titles “Trump Says he will Declassify All Documents”. Bullspit.
