    Both the New York Times and the Washington Post broke stories about the original memo President Donald Trump authored on a rainy day that would ultimately result in the firing of FBI director James Comey.

    Shugerman told MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell that the biggest name that has been associated with this memo and this conversation is Pence.

    Let me explain why this timeline puts him in legal jeopardy," Shugerman began. "So, we know that this letter was drafted on one day, and then after Steven Miller came back with that draft, it was read in a room of people, including Vice President Pence. And when that letter was read, it had—the New York Times talks about a 'screed'—and it identified all of these other connections to the Russian probe for why Trump had decided to fire Jim Comey. Then after this letter is edited, Mike Pence then tells the media that the Comey firing was not connected to the Russian probe, and he said it was due to Rod Rosenstein's

    Shugerman explained that because Pence heard the content of the letter and lied about it, he is now implicated in a "combination of conspiracy to commit obstruction of justice, aiding and abetting obstruction of justice, and also a relatively less known felony called misprision of a felony."

    last weekend in the local fish wrap I was reading an editorial about the white nationalist movement being compared to the Nazis in Germany
    the author stated that after Hitler seized power he outlawed other political parties and silenced opposition
    the article was written by a history professor from Washington State

    Hitler did not seize power he was legally appointed by president Hindenburg
    but hey he is a history professor

    over educated not knowing anything
    remember Barry was a "constitutional law professor" who knew nothing about the constitution

    The article in your post says the NY times broke the story, and that it speaks on Russia and Pence could be impeached. But in a NY times story today on this subject the NY times says they have not seen the letter and do not know what's in it.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/01/us/politics/trump-comey-firing-letter.html

    " The New York Times has not seen a copy of Mr. Trump’s letter — which was drafted at the urging of Mr. Trump during a pivotal weekend in May at the president’s private golf club in Bedminster, N. J. — and it is unclear how much of the letter’s rationale focuses on the Russia investigation. The Justice Department turned over a copy of the letter to Mr. Mueller in recent weeks."

    Even when you use bold type the fact is the "alternet" blog site your quoting is still BS. Even the NY Times who broke the story is reporting that they do not know what's in the letter.

    I wonder if we will ever see it. I don't think Mueller can release it. Not sure about legally but I would think he would be violating some kind of ethics standards.

    Problem for this 'law professor,' is that the FBI Director serves only at the pleasure of the Prez. The Prez can fire anyone in the Executive Branch for any reason, or no reason. He can fire everyone every day, if he wants, with no explanation. Pence won't be impeached by Congress for being in a room or talking to the press....

    What does anyone expect from the District of Criminals or District of Calamity or District of Collusion??
    - - - -
    At least V. P. Pence APPEARED LIVE in Houston since Grump couldn't factor that into his "to do" list.
    The fact that Pence showed up suggests he's a bigger Person than the so called president, unless of course the Pence appearance was a doppelganger.
