Eric Swalwell, also known as “Swallow”, by me, because you just can’t swallow anything this idiot says. It’s like he never went to college never went to law school and someone must have died and he inherited the Seat in Congress because who the hell would vote for someone that dumb?
So please allow me to explain a few very important facts to Swallow. There is only one part of the 3 Branches of our Government that can prosecute a Crime. That is the Justice Department better known as DOJ. Their powers are set out in the Constitution, Title18 USC, The Federal Rules of Criminal Procedures and several other places. So in general terms …if DOJ says they will not prosecute a case …its over …especially if the Head of DOJ the Attorney General, his First Assistant, and in this case a Special Counsel, also a part of DOJ, ALL say NO…It’s over!
Now if a Congressman, such as yourself claims he has knowledge and/or evidence of a crime and fails to report said evidence he is himself in violation of Title 18 Sec 4 USC Misprision of a Felony…”Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under thistitle or imprisoned not more than three…”
So you see Mr Swallow it doesn’t pay to play with Lady Justice just because you and some other …”elected officials” don’t like someone. We all have to follow the law; so do you knuckleheads in Congress who believe they are exempt.
Now, continuing with your lesson, regarding the Chris Steele “Dossier” , in January 2017 on national TV, the then FBI Director, James Comey said that the Dossier is “salacious and unverified”. Mr Comey is a part of the Branch of Government that investigates the laws that you, the third part create! If the Dossier was salacious and unverified in Jan 2017, it’s probably a fair, Judicial Assumption, that it was the same, 3 months earlier, when all of the Signors to the FISA Court wire on Carter Page, signed it!
Maybe you should have spent more time watching FOX instead of CNN…what do you think?
The entire investigation is “seated” in the Probable Cause on the First Page wire, as being “true and Accurate” …but it wasn’t. So all the signors are in serious trouble, but that’s another case!
When DOJ says that there was no Conspiracy ( there is no such thing/crime as Collusion) by Trump or any other US Citizen to influence the election by Conspiring with foreign officials, that means there was no crime. If there was no Crime then it ‘s not possible to Obstruct the Investigation into a noncrime! Besides ,what they are also saying is there is no sustainable evidence that Trump fired Comey to stop any investigation and besides the Constitution says he can fire Comey but they didn’t rely on that!
Let me make it simpler. If two people are planning to rob a Bank (Conspiring) but don’t rob the Bank. There is no crime! Therefore they can’t be charged with conspiring to commit a robbery that didn’t take place.
“What difference does it make”, if you law scholars of Shitty and Nadler interpret the interviews differently from the people whose opinions count? Your opinion don’t count…don’t feel bad as I have tried to arrest several people when the AUSA disagreed that we had enough evidence…but someone has to make the decision and fortunately it aint’t any of you prejudice, hypocrites who believe they are the elites of Government instead of 2 year part time employees!
You cannot investigate a person under our Rule of Law to see if they committed a crime. You must investigate a crime to see who committed the crime.. It violates the 14th Amendment, Due Process, The Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, DOJ and FBI Policy. If we must conform to the law and our Rules and Regulations so must Congress.
Leave this President alone, he has bigger things to do than fight your ridiculous charges… it may back fire in your faces!
