Seth Abramson, an English professor at the University of New Hampshire and veteran public defender in the state, just wrote a tweet storm noting that Trump’s lashing out at perceived conspiracies against him are some of the classic behaviors that a guilty person engages in when caught.
President Donald Trump has been going on tirades against the U.S. intelligence community, the American media, and a host of other institutions for allegedly undermining his presidency.
But Trump’s bogus conspiracy against him is just an attempt to deflect scrutiny of his actions.
“By raising issues irrelevant to the case the president is using anger and self-righteousness to avoid discussing the facts of the case, and is making himself difficult to access for further questioning,” Abramson suggests.
“Ask any criminal attorney: the president is engaging in all the behaviors a guilty person would,” he wrote, before listing off all of the 12 most common tactics used by guilty people to cover up their actions.
There are “12… common signs of a guilty person” and Trump is “exhibiting all of them,” he wrote.

I agree with Mr. Abramson. Do you?
