The left seems to be running out of ideas. Even after former FBI Director James Comey’s sworn testimony revealed that the president didn’t violate any laws by firing Comey, Democrats just can’t let go of their witch hunt.
Just days ago, a lawyer connected to the Obama administration showed exactly how desperate liberals are by throwing out outlandish new accusations at Trump.
Norm Eisen, who according to Newsmax previously worked as an ethics attorney for the 44th president, took to Twitter to complain about Trump’s bluff regarding Comey audio tapes.
“This lie increases Trump’s legal exposure for obstruction and witness intimidation — more evidence of corrupt intent,” the hand-wringing attorney posted.

Yes, even after the anti-Trump hysteria fizzled like a wet sparkler once Comey actually answered questions, Democrats are still chasing the “obstruction of justice” red herring.
If Eisen’s message is any indication, they’ve added “witness intimidation” to the list of imagined offenses by President Trump.
It should be noted that Trump never said, “I have audio tapes of Comey.” What he actually posted was far more vague.
“James Comey better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” the president posted on Twitter back in May, before the fired FBI director testified to Congress.
James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

Even experienced attorneys seem to be out-lawyered by Trump’s tactics. By keeping his post ambiguous, the president made his critics jump to conclusions while the White House never actually make a firm statement.
Trump’s tweet also forced Comey to think twice before lying or bending the truth during his testimony while under oath. With the possibility of contrary evidence looming over his head, he had no choice but to be forthcoming. The Twitter post by the president served its purpose perfectly.
Once again, Donald Trump is one step ahead of the Democrats and their predictable mud slinging… but it’s likely that the left isn’t done attacking the president.
What do you think of this latest liberal accusation?
