Trump goes to jail for obstruction of justice
Attorney George Conway said on MSNBC’s “All In” on Monday that he believes former President Donald Trump will go to jail for obstruction of justice when the federal government attempted to retrieve classified documents stored at his home in Florida.
Conway said, “His insane narcissism and his belief that he’s in control, that Article II lets him do whatever he wants, and that’s his generals across the river at the Pentagon, that’s what he’s got.” were his documents. I mean, that narcissism alone was enough for him to want to keep those documents. And then, of course, to show them to people.
He continued: “The obstruction charges are so strong. I mean, Ty Cobb, the White House lawyer who handled the Mueller investigation in the Trump administration, went on national television the other day and said, Trump is going to go jail for that. And he should, and he will. Because the obstruction case is so strong, as illustrated by the fact that they have all these lawyers’ notes and all these lawyers have testified.
Conway added: “It’s bad enough that he said, you know, that he made his lawyers give false information to the government and that he used his lawyers as instruments to commit a crime or a fraud. It’s one thing, you just have to show probable cause to get a search warrant, which he got in August. But to get the testimony of lawyers, judges don’t like to order that, because judges are lawyers. They were practicing lawyers. They respect attorney-client privilege. And breaching that privilege is something they don’t like to do. The fact that Judge Howell here in the District of Columbia doing so shows that the evidence is incredibly strong.
