Watergate Prosecutor: Comey Testimony Is The Start Of Obstruction Of Justice Case Against Trump
Watergate prosecutor Nick Ackerman pointed out on Friday that former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday is the beginning of an obstruction of justice case into President Trump.
“Comey came out and put in the first leg of the obstruction case, which is that meeting in the Oval Office,” Ackerman told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.
“That is one of four legs of the obstruction case that we have that include the two national security people who say that Trump called them and asked them to help stop that investigation, as well as the firing of Mr. Comey,” he continued.
Ackerman was referring to the meeting Comey and Trump had where the president asked Comey to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn’s ties to Russia.
On Friday Trump said that he would “100 percent” testify under oath after calling Comey a liar.
