Glenn Kirschner: In his recent post, Donald Trump admits to not one but two crimes. Can indictments be far off?

Donald Trump just posted what prosecutors will undoubtedly view as admissions to not one but two federal felony crimes: theft/unlawful concealment of government documents and obstruction of justice.

Trump expressly admitted that he took the documents – that did not belong to him – “openly and transparently.” He also complains that nothing was done to Hillary Clinton when she “deleted” emails “AFTER receiving a subpoena from the U.S. Congress.” This constitutes an implicit admission by Trump that he failed to produce the documents he stole when those documents were subpoenaed. These are sharply incriminating statements by Trump that prosecutors will certainly use as evidence at his eventual and inevitable criminal trial.
