Obama’s Lawyer Just Revealed How Trump May Be Landing HIMSELF In Prison

A bombshell

New York Times report about the tumultuous inner workings of the Trump team claims that Vice President Mike Pence was integral to President Donald Trump’s planned firing of former FBI Director James Comey that rocked American politics in the past week.
The article alleges that Pence was among “the small group of advisers who planned Mr. Comey’s ouster in near secrecy”.
Pence’s work to forward the initial White House story claiming that Trump fired Comey under recommendation from Attorney General Jeff Sessions was “vaporized” once Trump appeared on Lester Holt‘s show Thursday, when the president claimed that he was “going to to fire regardless of the recommendation” of Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Along with allegations that Pence helped Trump concoct a story to fire Comey, the article also makes the serious claim, based on interviews with “a half-dozen West Wing officials” who remain anonymous, that Trump is “considering the most far-reaching shake-up of his already tumultuous team”. The article insinuates that the shake-up will come in the form of firing Press Secretary Sean Spicer, but remains unclear as to exactly how “far-reaching” such changes could go.

He gave Trump great advice to keep himself out of prison.

The Trial of Donald Trump. Should the stars (and stripes) align, and should the American people be so lucky, it would not only be the event of the century, but the defining moment in the country’s history. Great ratings. HUGE ratings. It’s certainly not entirely farfetched. If the Trump-Russia connections are revealed to be true, he’d face not only impeachment, but criminal proceedings.
First witness for the prosecution: Donald J. Trump.
In an essay posted on Lawfare, Bob Bauer – a former Obama White House Counsel – just said that Trump’s Tweets could be putting him in legal peril:
“Mr. Trump appears not to understand that he is drawing a certain picture of himself, which is neither pretty nor without consequence for his legal position. This self-portrait can be counted on to color unfavorably any assessment of his motives when more formal inquiries into his behavior are considered or take place. While it is certainly true that prosecutors should pursue the crime and not specific individuals, suspicious behavior cannot help but draw attention to itself and push forward an investigation.”
Mr. Bauer was referring to Trump’s recent attempt to intimidate fired FBI Director James Comey via Twitter:
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!
To say Trump’s mobster-like behavior is “unpresidential” is to pretend that the word still has any meaning. His bullish, borderline criminal public behavior intimates a confidence that he is above not only common decency, but the law.
Mr. Bauer offers a parting warning:
“What is most remarkable is that the President has willingly created this self-portrait.  As scandals-in-the-making go, this one may become famous for featuring the President as the principal witness against himself: he seems committed to uncovering any cover-up.”

The coming months will show whether or not Trump gets the jail bars he so deeply deserves, but it’s nice to know he’s already building a case against himself
