Trump’s Attorney General: Trump Broke the Law


These answers seem pertinent!

On Thursday night, BuzzFeed News’s Jason Leopold and Anthony Cormier reported that President Donald Trump instructed his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, to lie to Congress about Trump’s involvement in plans for a real estate project in Moscow.

The BuzzFeed report, based on testimony and facts gathered by special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, is — if true — clear evidence that Trump committed obstruction of justice, which is a focus of the Mueller investigation and a federal crime.

In addition to coming out in the middle of a government shutdown, BuzzFeed’s scoop comes as the Senate Judiciary Committee prepares to vote on the nomination of Attorney General William Barr — who would take over oversight of Mueller’s investigation if confirmed. And that puts Barr in a very interesting position.

Because Barr is on the record, multiple times, saying that if a president told a witness to lie, that would be obstruction of justice. And that, of course, is precisely what Trump now stands accused of.

Seems problematic, although I’m not sure you can trust a Democrat partisan like Barr. Also, Klobuchar is really good at this.
