Former AG under GW Bush says, "No obstruction of justice" and here is why . . . .



Former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Sunday that nothing former FBI Director James Comey laid out in his testimony on Thursday showed President Trump committing obstruction of justice.

“The obstruction of justice statute insofar as it is relevant requires that the president have acted corruptly unless he acted by force, which obviously he didn’t — that be acted corruptly that means doing something lawful by unlawful means or doing something unlawful. He didn’t do either one of those,” the former attorney general explained.

“It wasn’t that he took a bribe in order to shut down the investigation. It wasn’t that he offered a bribe in order to shut down the investigation. He acted apparently out of concern for Flynn, perhaps even out of concern for himself. that’s not corruptly.”
