United States News - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 20:39

Krauthammer said, “The idea that this is intimidation of a witness is pure rubbish. If you say to somebody, ‘Watch — I mean, you’ve got a great family, hate to see anything happen to your kids, watch what you say.’ That’s intimidation of a witness. If you say, ‘There may be a way to actually — to figure out exactly what was said, there could be a mechanism, thus you ought to watch what you say.’ That’s not intimidation at all.
