Trump Lawyer literally Claims The President Can Shoot A Person Without Being Indicted | MSNBC 1


President Trump’s lawyers are in federal court arguing not to release Trump’s tax documents, citing Trump’s claim that he could ‘shoot someone’ on Fifth avenue without repercussion, because a ‘local authority’ would not have the power to do anything. The Root’s Jason Johnson argues Trump’s argument proses ‘danger’ because Trump ‘emboldens other people,’ including ‘Congress’ to ignore the law.’ Aired on 10/23/19.

  1. Bill Clinton had to face a civil suit but Donnie cannot be investigated for a crime?

    • @Chris H Very simple question. Why did he paid Stormy Daniel $130k for signing a NDA if he thinks that nothing can hold him accountable for, even shooting someone in the 5th ave.,? He shouldn’t be worried about any scandals, should he?

    • @Emily Moss It’s not a crime for the president to ask Ukraine to investigate corruption. There’s no evidence of quid pro quo for personal gain. It is indeed a partisan show — and a dumb one since it’s only going to make Trump more sympathetic to his voting base and make them hate liberals even more.

    • Trump should be prosecuted for something serious like aiding the Saudis in Yemen or increasing drone strikes on civilians — not for following up on campaign promises. This will backfire.

  2. Trump supporters would make great North Koreans. Maybe they should all just move there?

    • No need. Just transform the USA into a North Korea would do it.

    • At this point these people just mad we’re educated!! Democrats read period therefore we understand. They don’t understand the law until they’re on the opposite side of the law headed to the slammer sad but true.

    • You can also send them to us here in Greece! We have a very crook-friendly country.

    • @Kevin Mcneil u clearly don’t know know what those words mean or you’d know that’s what trumf being impeached for but no benefit for you but himself capitalizing and profiting from the USA for his benefits…..

    • @Kita Patton lol… Great grama! Straight out of the ghetto… All democrats are irrelevant Trump-Change! lol democrat plantation parrots. Just repeating what other negros are whining about!

    Fine if it’s himself!

  4. In this case a person should be able to shoot the president without being indicted. Where is the CIA when you need them!

    • Well the ones who hated Trump were made public immediately and left. One of them a women CIA or was it secret service..who said she’s leaving cause she doesn’t want to protect him.

    • The CIA is not supposed to operate domestically.

    • @Amy Hinton
      It does. Well intelligence gathering for the most part. My friend was recruited as a computer and security specialist. Really its not like the movies or conspiracy theories. Lot of bungling and miscommunication from people who should know better.
      I mean that last part should be clear from the many decades of reports.

    • Still water is deeper than you think.

    • At the end of the day, no one should martyr a moron. Trump being the largest moron ever.

  5. if it was obama you would have charrletsville times thousands

  6. The only gun Trump knows how to use is a spray gun.

  7. He thinks he’s a God King. Like Dune’s Emperor. Who turned into a giant sandworm, by the way. Totally fitting.

    • @Mind Freshener LOL Clinton and Biden are liberals!? They’re simply blue Republicans. Any corporate politician is a parasite that should be purged from office. I didn’t support Clinton in 2016, and I most certainly will not vote for Biden in 2020. I’ll vote for literally any Democrat running besides Joe Biden. If Biden ends up as the nominee, I’ll either vote for Trump or not vote at all, like I did in 2016. I voted straight blue during the mid terms, simply because Trump just had to make the election about himself. As if he could do anything else.

      @Emily Moss So how was she punished? She wasn’t. She is untouchable. inquiry was a sham.

    • Mind Freshener | October 24, 2019 at 1:16 AM | Reply

      @Richard Butt Both parties are Liberals. It is only the degree to which they are open about it that is different. This is the reason nothing ever gets done, while Liberal agendas are getting imposed unchallenged.

    • @Mind Freshener Man, whatever type of weed you’re smoking I want some. I’d love to experience a different reality.

    • @Mind Freshener lol, you moron. She wasn’t punished because Gowdy couldn’t get her on anything because either she was innocent, or Republicans are just incompetent. You choose. Then you go play in traffic.

  8. He cannot accept the facts that he violated the constitution…..
    So, what does it say to you, thjs kind of person? A dictator?!

  9. I knew that Trump believed this, but now he has others believing it. Sad time for America

  10. Really?
    Sign me up
    What a gig.
    And what a bunch of crap.
    This a**hole must go
    Tertiary syphilis has set in

  11. Can we fast forward to him no longer bring president?

    • María Martínez | October 24, 2019 at 12:22 AM | Reply

      @James Eslick I promise you that he won’t leave graciously if he loses the next election, neither if he fulfils a second term. He is already characterized as Individual 1 in the case that sent Cohen to jail, and the one and only reason he isn’t in handcuffs now is the office. Do you really believe he will respect *that* part of the “phony” Constitution? Forget the statute of limitations, he’ll commit new and worse crimes since he believes himself invulnerable as long as he is in office. Your darling is a con man, and you the dupe.

    • María Martínez | October 24, 2019 at 12:23 AM | Reply

      No, we can’t. Get up and go vote to take him out of the Oval Office, and his enablers with him. Don’t forget to take a couple of friends with you.

    • @María Martínez This, precisely

  12. When all this is said and done, the Republicans will never be looked upon at the same way 😬

    • MeanGeneSanDiego | October 23, 2019 at 11:47 PM | Reply

      @John Lawson To quote Forrest Gump; “Stupid is, is stupid does.”

    • They’ve always been garbage

    • That’s what I thought during the Bush years, then we got Trump right after. Not one decent Republican President in my lifetime so far and I’m pushing 50.

    • The “gop” will always be looked upon fondly by the nation’s uber-wealthy….the “gop” is here for the super rich; not for you or for me (though I’m comfortable) and ESPECIALLY not for the poor souls who’ve been duped by the “gop” into thinking the “gop” is working for their benefit.

  13. Meanwhile on Fox News, they’re saying there’s a “Democrat meltdown”. Yet this crazy argument doesn’t bother them one bit. Crazy.

    And let me guess if someone acts in self defense and kills him first they broke the law 😐

  15. Are you sure “tRump’s lawyer” was a lawyer and not a criminal? Either way he needs to go back to school, not just law school.

  16. Sharon Sanchez | October 23, 2019 at 11:14 PM | Reply

    From what he did in Syria one could say he is responsible for murder.

    Here’s how many people think Trump is literally insane or he has an ego bigger than the planet


  18. That boast should have been the end of his candidacy.

  19. Trump is a prime example of that uncommon creature: a male who can queef through his teeth.

    This sounds more like the dictator rather than the President of a democracy.
