“In his praise for Manafort, now convicted of multiple felonies but refusing to spill the beans, to his ire with Cohen for a willingness to cooperate, to his absurd claim that turning state’s evidence should be outlawed, Trump acts more like a mob boss than a president.”Adam Schiff on Twitter
Trump’s words and actions should be instantly recognizable as a call for “omerta” as policy. It’s horrible. But this was W’s policy during the torture memo and Plame investigation. Oliver North became a hero during Iran contra for following the GOP rules on Omerta. It’s a crime family, not a political party.
