Feinstein: We’re Starting to See the ‘Putting-Together of a Case of Obstruction of Justice’
Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said on Meet the Press today that there’s a very real possibility of an obstruction of justice case against President Trump.
She told Todd, “The Judiciary Committee has an investigation going as well and it involves obstruction of justice. And, I think, what we’re beginning to see is the putting-together of a case of obstruction of justice.”
“I think we see this in the indictments, the four indictments and pleas that have just taken place, and some of the comments that are being made. I see it in the hyper-frenetic attitude of the White House––the comments every day, the continual tweets. And I see it, most importantly, in what happened with the firing of Director Comey and it is my belief that that is directly because he did not agree to lift the cloud of the Russia investigation. That’s obstruction of justice.”
With questions being raised in this investigation about an obstruction of justice case against the President, Trump this morning tweeted a denial he asked James Comey to go easy on Michael Flynn:
I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn. Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie!
