President Barack Obama would have fired BP'’s Tony Hayward over controversial comments downplaying the Gulf oil spill — if the executive had been working for him.
The president added pressure on Hayward during an interview with Matt Lauer on NBC's TODAY broadcast Tuesday, amid claims from a former EPA lawyer that BP is a "recurring environmental criminal."
For a federal official to make false statements, create false evidence, or mutilating evidence would be Obstructing Justice.
TITLE 18 - CRIMES AND CRIMINAL PROCEDURE
PART I - CRIMES
CHAPTER 73 - OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE
§ 1519. Destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in Federal investigations and bankruptcy
Whoever knowingly alters, destroys, mutilates, conceals, covers up, falsifies, or makes a false entry in any record, document, or tangible object with the intent to impede, obstruct, or influence the
investigation or proper administration of any matter within the jurisdiction of any department or agency of the United States or any case filed under title 11, or in relation to or contemplation of
any such matter or case, shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.
(Added Pub. L. 107–204, title VIII, § 802(a), July 30, 2002, 116 Stat. 800.)
President Obama is falling into a duplicit Machiavellian power play.
He continually does not recognize the ongoing Chemical Assault – Scorched Earth ongoing for nearly 24 years. Lakes, rivers, streams, food in stores, and the air is constantly polluted in the High Sierra region of California, Nevada, and Oregon.
The Coast Guard is beginning to argue the spill along military lines. I have always called it a Scorched Earth because that is concrete reality. It does not matter at this point if Exxon or Mickey Mouse spilled the oil, President Barack Obama cannot escape the reality principle. Liability will come science and the courts.
It is my position that Obama challenging Hayward by stating that he is a "recurring environmental criminal”, further demonstrates the folly of the ritualistic white collar criminal culture that Obama is now the figurehead for. Obama is attempting to master the payoffs and costs of being a player of games.
He is gaming the system and he is beginning to become affected by what is ironically known as a negative spillover.
How Tony Hayward prevails, he states that BP is behind him, also will most likely be the new benchmark for CEO performance.
