Ethics Office has 'essentially' reported Trump to the Justice Department for potential criminal pros

SNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber reports that the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) sent a letter to the Department of Justice on President Donald Trump’s hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

(snip)

Former Department of Justice spokesperson Matt Miller described the letter as “essentially a criminal referral to DOJ for Trump making a false statement in a previous financial disclosure.”

Walter Shaub, the former Director of the Office of Government Ethics, went even further than Miller.

“This is tantamount to a criminal referral,” Shaub suggested. “OGE has effectively reported the president to DOJ for potentially committing a crime.”

4. I would hate to sit on the opposite side of Gowdy....

In a legitimate investigation.

Unless the opposite side meant he was the one being questioned.

2. This is so minor in comparison to OrangeTurd's other crimes

It’s comical that this was referred to DOJ for action.

If this gets him impeached, I’m going to laugh my ass off!

6. Impeached perhaps, combined with emoluments corruption (foreign & domestic).

The problem is that most Republicans don't see this as wrong, and in fact consider it a normal part of doing business.
