GOP primary challenger: Trump is a 'one-man crime wave'

Source: The Hill


President Trump's first GOP primary challenger, former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld, is calling the president a "one-man crime wave" a day after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia's election meddling.

Mueller's redacted report, which was released Thursday, found no conspiracy between Trump's 2016 campaign and Moscow, but listed several "episodes" of possible obstruction of justice, including Trump ordering subordinates to shutdown or stymie the special counsel's office.

“This man is a one-man crime wave,” Weld said in an interview with MSNBC that aired Friday. “He instructed senior legal officials, senior national security, senior intelligence officials to lie, he actively sought out and suborned perjury. That is obstruction of justice."

Weld described the president's behavior as "criminal conduct and impeachable conduct," but later clarified that he was not calling for the House to impeach Trump.

4. 'One-man crime wave'. Great, great label.

Republicans seem much better at the label game.

[We should use it though].

5. Well, I wouldn' say 45 is a 'one-man crime wave.' He has a lot of aiders and abetters, a lot of whom

are in Congress and actually protecting 45.

10. Well, if that is true, I can't visualize Mitch and the rest of the Congressional Repugs as people

trapped in some kind of evil trance. Mitch in particular is evil incarnate IMO.

Plus he has a good brain

13. How liberal?

The only thing I've read so far about his ideology stated that he was 'fiscally conservative, socially liberal'. I've come to distrust that label for the simple fact that most fiscally conservative policies are highly regressive in nature and in practical effect. I keep thinking pols adopt that label because they want conservative votes without being tagged as a hater.
