Alan Derschowitz: Trump Shouldn't Fire Rosenstein. Instead, He Should File a Motion to the DoJ Requiring Rosenstein to Recuse Himself

Interesting.

Derschowitz says that if the DOJ refuses to recuse Rosenstein, then Trump could/should seek a similar order from a judge, but why not start with the DOJ motion first?

"If I were a lawyer for Donald Trump, and I am not, I am just saying what I would say about anybody, I would be making a motion in front of a judge," he explained. "First I'd make it in the Justice Department, to recuse Rosenstein. Then Id make it in front of a judge. You cannot be a prosecutor and you cannot be a witness in the same case."

Meanwhile, now that the Electronic Communication (EC) that sparked the Trump probe has finally been released to Congress, people can start making judgments about it.

Here's a Republican representative from New York:

32 It is nice to have a good legal mind on our side making the case this is beyond the pale.

I'll say this, outside of Dershowitz, Trump seems to be getting piss poor legal advice.

Maybe JackStraw is right and people like Sessions are getting their ducks in a row and laying low, but here from the cheap seats I see Trump making a lot of dumb moves and not dealing with these people appropriately.

Stupid things like suing Stormy Daniels, saying he would allow himself to be interviewed by Mueller, keeping on Rosenstein, not having Sessions open up DOJ investigations into these people, on and on. I would argue just cooperating at all with Mueller is stupid, how many people have they now destroyed?

I'm no lawyer, but Trump seems to not be getting good advice. Maybe Dershowitz could lend a hand here.

To be fair he didn't sue Stormy, his lawyer did, and based on the stipulations of the NDA agreement Cohen would have been negligent in his legal duties not to do so. His lawyers also advised him NOT to do a Mueller interview either. I do think his legal team is a hit or miss in terms of quality though.

63 Sessions' longtime friend and his (now) personal attorney Charles Cooper selected rosenstein (and, per an abovethelaw.com post from 1/13/17, the other DOJ picks during the transition.) IMO, that is why Sessions refuses to even limit rosenstein; Cooper giving advice to Sessions. And, the number three guy now, Solicitor Noel Francisco, is from Cooper's law firm, too. (Francisco was also in the picture of Sessions and RR having dinner, after Trump voiced his opinion of RR.)

Not a happy picture for PDT.

___________

But here's what is so dangerous. Clinton's impeachment was about lying under oath in a sexual harassment civil suit.

Say Mueller interviewed Trump and asked sexual details about his alleged affair(s) with other women and he lied about it? Grounds for removal via impeachment?

I would argue that's stupid, but we don't exactly have a lot of credibility if we make that case after Clinton.

Trump could easily get himself tangled up in something stupid like that. That's why in my opinion Mueller should be fired. Once you have a DOJ hostile to the President and trying to take him out, it completely undermines the branch of government the American people elected into office.

Messrs. K and H. assure the public
Their production will be second to none
And of course Henry The Horse dances the waltz!

Not that you're doing this, but some people seem to make the assumption that if it's a politician they don't like they must be gay. Boehner's gay, Paul Ryan is gay, etc. (I do think the guy from SC really Is gay) First of all, why should it make a difference and yes, both good and bad people happen to be gay-and straight

161 Trump needs to fire Muller, and there's nothing no one can do about it.

Trump has constitutional rights to do so. If the House tries to impeach him, they'll have a very rocky reason to do so since the Probe is not a legal court; therefore, obstruction of justice can not be claimed.
If the House still impeach Trump, we'll go to the Senate where he'll stand trial. IN ORDER for Trump to be removed from Office, 3/4 of the Senate must vote to convict him.


Now are the Democrats really going give at least HALF of the Republicans the LBJ Treatment and expect to get their way?

Nellie's background was needed to give it some "oomph" and to appear as though the folks talked to as described "high level person within the former KGB" BS to make it sound plausible. She was hired on - IIRC - in spring 2016. Why? What other stuff was GPS working on that would have required her assistance? The Majistrik Act? They were working on behalf of the Russians. No need to have a Kremlinologist background person. They had the Kremlin available to answer any questions that came up.

193 That's where Ohr's wife came in. Hell, Steele hadn't been to Russia in 17 years. And didn't speak a frickin' lick of Russian. Nellie's background was needed to give it some "oomph" and to appear as though the folks talked to as described "high level person within the former KGB" BS to make it sound plausible. She was hired on - IIRC - in spring 2016. Why? What other stuff was GPS working on that would have required her assistance? The Majistrik Act? They were working on behalf of the Russians. No need to have a Kremlinologist background person. They had the Kremlin available to answer any questions that came up.
Posted by: Steve_in_SoCal at April 12, 2018 05:54 PM

Bingo. I always find it amazing. The dems talk about how untrustworthy the Russians are. To which I agree. But the ONLY trustworthy ones were the ones that nobody knows whom thye are that were allegedly feeding info to Steele. Then they are totally legit. Somehow that info was gospel.

207 Catcher?

They have five or six kids. Been married since 1987; In this day and age-I think he would have gotten divorced before this if he were gay. No indication that he is.

Not that you're doing this, but some people seem to make the assumption that if it's a politician they don't like they must be gay. Boehner's gay, Paul Ryan is gay, etc. (I do think the guy from SC really Is gay) First of all, why should it make a difference and yes, both good and bad people happen to be gay-and straight
Posted by: FenelonSpoke at April




well, not that it is in my golf bag of comments, it is funny because straight guys hate being called gay. just like calling a guy a cocksucker usually piques his interest and not in a good way, even if he likes sucking cock. it is just a thing.

209 so what are the options re Trump , hatch act
Rosenstein, Mueller others?

How long do we have to wait to be certain?

1 they set this in motion by planting the dossier
2 wouldn't that already activate the hatch act?
3 i know if police raid a place or such and they did not go properly through channels, doesn't that make everything inadmissible?
4 they didn't stop there, now they have raided the atty office breaking several amendments of atty client privilege, etc 5th amendment etc.

and then of course the total double standard of treatment between the last administration and this

so What actual political win can be had.

not just legal.
but so the regular joe blow understand what has happened thus far?

And Sessions is not the caricature he has been presented as around here and other places. He was Trump well before Trump was Trump and nobody changes who they are at 70 years old.

267 have the same issue with congress going to court to force the executive to do something. they do this when they do not have the will to simply use their existing authority. even worse, they set precedents and give the courts more authority.

Posted by: yankeefifth at April 12, 2018 06:07 PM



Read last year (and I forget the source) about how legal reviews of bills have pretty much gone by the wayside. Congress is all about making laws to please the contributors...I mean constituents...and who gives a rats ass if they are even legal. Let the courts figure it out. And...lets face it...for about 80% of the 535 asshats on the Hill, they learned about making laws on Fraggle Rock.

310 208 Jackstraw,
Sundance is meticulous and does not engage much in speculation. He does tend to bore folks with short attention span and desire for immediate action. He does give his opinion from time to time. He did exemplary work in the Trayvon Martin case a few years ago.

Overall, much of his material dealing with process jives with what I know about the legal process, administrative, and criminal law--which is a bit. He can be a bit on the sunny side that everything will turn out all right in the end which some find grating.

BTW, CTH is NOT the place to exhibit the free flowing, ahem, commentary that flies here. It does have a strict commentary policy and has considerable religious overtones in the official posts.

Your commentary is also pretty much spot on as well.

If any president had pulled something like that any time up prior to 2000, you'd have had the Majority and Minority Leaders in front of cameras at that little area in the Capitol where they do stand-ups, informing the administration it had a few days to make things right if it wanted *anything* including appropriations or nominee confirmations that year. Bobby Byrd would have given one of his passionate floor speeches to applause from both sides and the galleries.

no, I am talking about the way things are written.

the rules were written by serious men that played hardball and wrote the rules for hardball. you are suggesting a stopgap half measure that undermines everything in the long run AND puts Trump at the mercy of a judge. What happens if the judge refuses Trump's request? Will Trump exercise his Constitutional authority then?

Will it look better or worse if Trump goes to a judge to beg for action and gets rejected by the judge and then takes action on his own or if he simply acts within the bounds of his authority to begin with?

Why would you think that the courts are going to favor Trump?

But just consider what has already happened, how many people from senior level positions at the DOJ/FBI have been removed, some of whom are obviously cooperating with a federal prosecutor who has been on this probably since last summer, and look at the behavior of the people who are in the crosshairs.

They are taking turns throwing each other under the bus and contradicting sworn testimony. This is not the behavior of innocent people.

If you believe as I do that Trump has known what happened since the fall of 2016 when Admiral Rogers told him and you accept that all these scandals are related and it is massive and it will take a careful, well laid out prosecution to overcome the media, the left and the common wisdom, it all makes sense.

He's mostly known for the Mega-Scandal stuff, but aside from that he's one of the few bloggers to focus on trade. A bit of 13-dimensional chess boosterism on that some times, but a correct grasp of Trump's strategic approach, which is barely understood (or so it seems) or discussed in blogs or the MSM.

358 324,
Rhomboid,
My conclusion is that many members of Congress are simply bought and paid for--either through spousal and relations employment, lucrative post-Congressional careers, and insider type trading through tips from lobbyists/corporate folks. After Citizens United, dark money from billionaires, astro turf lobbying, blackmail by the Deep State via intercepts, etc., I see a uni-party Congress favoring and covering up massive wrongdoing by corporations, government, and non-profits.

A someone who worked in Congress years ago, I find it saddening that even the gadflies in office are now apparently owned by someone.

well, even then it is a dangerous precedent fo rth echief executive to petition a department within his branch to do something.

same argument, what if they say no? can he go ahead anyway? why does he have to petition some department in his branch? are they some monastic, super pure order or are they rife with people that hate Trump and willing to abuse their position?

once you set the precedent of the pres begging to his department the whole thing goes to hell.

the pubilc perception may be more favorable but the mechanics are abominable.

what would you have him do if he is denied his petition to the DOJ? The Judiciary? Is he just SOL then? Would the optics be better or worse if he goes ahead on his own without begging the doj and courts or if he goes ahead after getting rejected by them?

questions begging answers.

382 People here probably know this already, but Robert Mueller has a long history of hounding the innocent. I recently stumbled across:

1. The hounding of one, then another goverment scientist for the 2001 anthrax attacks. One sued for millions and won, the other killed himself, and a scientific panel later found no basis for suspecting either one of them.

2. Prosecuting four innocent men for a 1965 Boston murder and keeping them locked up for 30 years despite exonerating evidence in FBI files -- to protect FBI mob informants who committed the actual murder.

Both were Mueller shit shows, as US Attorney and as FBI. He doesn't care.

I am pretty sure that DJT knows via NSA intercepts and other sources of information that a breathtaking level of corruption, illegality, and partisanship by senior law enforcement and intelligence community members exists.

I was around for the Watergate and Church committee hearings and saw similar type activities but they were aimed for the most part at national security type issues and other countries (apart from the actual Watergate breakin itself).

The Deep State was bad during the late Clinton years, the WOT under Bush gave it new tools ostensibly to fight terrorism, and went into overdrive during the Obama administration. The apparatus for a security state and apparent legal justifications now exist with our remaining bulwark being the lack of total control of law enforcement.

As somewhat of a historian, for our country to continue, we need a cleanup on a Justinian level scale.
