Trump Signed His Last Days Of Freedom Away By Picking A Fight With Justice Roberts, Here’s Why:

Donald Trump picked that wrong fight with Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who could ultimately be the person that decides his fate in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

On Saturday, MSNBC’s Ari Melber explained exactly why it was a stupid move for Trump to pick a fight with Roberts.

“Donald Trump’s literally trying to get his domestic opponents indicted, while his lawyers are demanding an end to the probe into his White House, while also installing a staffer as now acting attorney general who has criticized the Mueller probe repeatedly, and pushing the campaign to oust and potentially prosecute another witness,” said Melber. “All this comes after reports that Trump, of course, also tried to fire Bob Mueller as recently as December.”

“Take it all together,” Melber added. “Anyone of those things could be an element of the crime of obstruction. But together, a prosecutor or, in our system, a Congress, could find that all of those things are grounds for much more. Which is why Trump’s own lawyers, we reported last night, thanks to The New York Times, are warning him of impeachment over just some of that, and why any process to hold Trump accountable may wind up before — yes — the Supreme Court.”

Roberts has the power to decide whether Trump must comply with a subpoena from Mueller that could ultimately lead to his impeachment.

“At least one justice is not waiting to take the first punch on behalf of that institution,” Melber concluded, “But is instead moving first for judicial independence, and clearly against Donald Trump.”
