(PatriotWise.com) – Several “legal experts” from the anti-Trump Resistance are speculating that it is possible that some of Trump’s “inner circle” have turned on the former president and may be cooperating with the Justice Department’s special counsel investigation.
They don’t know this for certain. But in the absence of facts, anti-Trump “legal experts” have no problem indulging in wild speculation.
Ryan Goodman, a former special counsel to the general counsel of the Defense Department speculated that former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows may have “flipped” on Trump to avoid prosecution.
Goodman bases his speculation on the testimony of Cassidy Hutchinson, the former White House aide famous for concocting the hearsay tale of Trump trying to wrestle for control of the presidential limo on January 6.
Hutchinson allegedly claimed that Meadows sent his spokesman to intimidate her before she testified to the Jan 6 select committee.
Goodman claims that Hutchinson’s hearsay testimony is “essentially Exhibit One for the trial of Mark Meadows for witness tampering.”
Neama Rahmani, a former federal prosecutor, suggested that the special counsel has the “leverage” he needs to pressure Meadows to cooperate with the investigation if it is true that he tried intimidating a witness.
Rahmani speculated that Meadows could possibly testify that Trump planned to “declare himself the winner no matter what.”
Resistance law professor Laurence Tribe also speculated that Meadows “must be cooperating” with the special counsel.
Tribe suggested on Twitter that unless Meadows fears “Trump’s heavily armed Proud Boys and Oath Keepers” more than he fears going to prison, he “must be cooperating with Jack Smith already!”
And given how many times Tribe’s predictions about Trump’s fate have been wrong, you probably shouldn’t take that to the bank.
Earlier this year, Congress voted to refer Mark Meadows to the DOJ for contempt of Congress after he refused to cooperate with the Jan. 6 committee. The DOJ declined to prosecute.
