Jeffrey Toobin On Trump-Comey Chat: ‘Obstruction Of Justice’

Toobin is one of the most well known constitutional scholars:

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin is continuing to make strong statements about President Donald Trump’s meeting with fired FBI director James Comey.

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that the president asked Comey to end the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The bombshell accusation is based on a memo Comey reportedly wrote shortly after the meeting. If true, Toobin says, it presents a very simple legal case against Trump.

“Three words — obstruction of justice,” Toobin said Tuesday to Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room.

He explained further: “Telling the FBI director to close down an investigation of your senior campaign adviser for his activities during your campaign for president, if that’s true, that is obstruction of justice.”
