Top 5 Reasons Don McGahn’s Congressional Testimony about Trump’s Obstruction of Justice is Important
…from Glenn Kirshner
[ Editor’s Note: I often find myself wanting Glenn to not repeat material so much, but in the end I have to give him a break. His style has been formed over many years for communicating with juries, often during long and complex trials.
He knows that key points need to be hammered into the volunteer jurors. He doesn’t want to go to fast, or gamble that they will all ‘get it’ in the first pass, hence the repetition.
This was a cheery five key points that Trump is toast on the obstruction of justice with Mueller. I certainly had not expected McGahn to go down with the Trump ship. He has set the bar now for the others to follow…”Save Yourselves”.
I might be dreaming, but we might even see a few years from now when Trump accepts that he is toast, he will offer to testify against all those that testified against him. What a circus that would be.
So Mr. T. will continue with his grifting act, because keeping money flowing is his main survival focus. But a time might come when his campaign funds get frozen somehow… Jim W. Dean ]
