Comey Confirms Trump Russia Prosecutions: Collusion Scandal May End with Indictments, Impeachment

After reports surfaced last week claiming that two grand jury investigations into possible collusion between the Donald Trump presidential campaign and Russian officials and intelligence agents, to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey confirmed in sworn testimony Wednesday that “two sets of prosecutors” were hard at work on the Trump Russia scandal.

According to John Dean, former White House lawyer in the Richard Nixon administration and a key figure in the Watergate scandal, Comey’s sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee strongly indicates that at least one grand jury has already convened to hear evidence in the investigation of Trump and his alleged Russia ties.

Read the Inquisitr report on the possible grand jury investigation into the Trump Russia scandal by clicking on the top link in the box at the bottom of this article. If indeed a grand jury, or as last week’s reports claimed, two grand juries are indeed hearing evidence of Trump’s Russia connections, the likelihood exists that some Trump associates and potentially even Trump himself could face indictments — and those indictments could spark impeachment proceedings if they are deemed to reveal “treason, bribery, and other high crimes and misdemeanors,” which are the impeachable offenses laid out in Article Three of the United States Constitution.

There are a ton of related links at the link and the article itself is a great read, very informative.

I sure hope they're right.

3. So to recap, the article shows Comey did not say a grand jury was empaneled

and makes its claim using John Dean's (A convicted felon) Opinion that a Grand Jury MAY be empaneled



There you have it readers, Immacolata's Purple Monkey DIshwasher moment....

3rd thread today that swears Grand Juries at work yet offers no real proof of such

4. We live in an upside down world

where the people who attacked us, and continue to attack us, are our allies, but the people fighting against the bad guys are our adversaries.

And most of us are too distracted, too confused and too wilfully blind to notice.

7. Yep. For a long time I expected a moment of clarity for them

but then I realized it wasn't ignorance keeping DC from arriving at the truth--all of their bullshit is by design.

6. OP is a lie. There are no prosecutions occurring.

Even if a grand jury is impaneled that is not a prosecution. Charges have to be formally filed alleging the commission of specific violations of specific laws in order for a prosecution to occur. And, under our legal system, one is not guilty of a crime unless the persecutor can prove the commission of a crime beyond a reasonable doubt either to a judge or jury.

8. Will you acknowledge that empaneling a GJ ain't a promising sign?

 

Because a competent prosecutor could get a Grand Jury to indict Mother Teresa.
And since "reasonable doubt" is nowhere near the standard for a grand jury to return an indictment, Trump should at the very least be paying attention to this.

9. He has more important things to care about

And, as you obviously know from your comment, "you can indict a ham sandwich" so this "story" is just more NothingGate.

I assume you're aware of what DiFi said yesterday, right?

And the OP title is still an outright lie.

11. You're assuming a grand jury has been empaneled.

That's a big assumption, especially considering that Feinstein just stated clearly that no evidence of collusion has been found so far. Why would you empanel a grand jury with no evidence to present them? Um, you wouldn't.

10. So the article is based on a tweet fro someone claiming to be a former Clinton staffer

Based on an unnamed source and a tweet from Olberman re: 2 teams investigating and also because Roger Stone admitted to talking to Guccifer 2 re: the Podesta emails that Wikileaks very clearly has stated did not come from Russia and has gone so far as to hint came from DNC Seth Rich. And also Flynn who lied. And also Sessions who didn't lie when you consider the the full question including context of any meetings with Russia.

12. I was okay until I saw that they embedded the lunatic Olbermann as part of the story.

That made me stop right there. I don't read or listen to lunatic's rantings. Especially Olbermann's
