Sen. Feinstein Says We’re Beginning To See An Obstruction Of Justice Case Put Together With President Trump

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California), a ranking member on the Judiciary Committee, said on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday that we’re beginning to see an obstruction of justice case put together with President Trump which follows the President’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey in May, just three months after he demanded his loyalty and the ending of the FBI investigation of his National Security Adviser Michael Flynn concerning his past Russian contacts.

“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” Sen. Feinstein said.

“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” Sen. Feinstein added.

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn admitted to lying to FBI agents on Friday in connection with his past contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak over Russian sanctions and a UN national security resolution over Israeli settlements.

Sen. Feinstein said that she believes National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was “directed” to stop the national security resolution going through the United Nations regarding Israel and also sanctions former U.S. President Obama had imposed on Russia related to meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Sen. Feinstein admitted that the investigation which really has clout is Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s case.

“He’s got all the tools he needs, investigative and legal, to do what he needs to do. I think what we’re seeing is some of the fallout from that” Sen. Feinstein said.

President Trump tweeted on Saturday that he had to fire former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI.

Earlier, President Trump admitted that he fired Michael Flynn because he had lied to the Vice President.

But with the new Trump admission on Saturday via Twitter that he fired Flynn in January because he also lied to the FBI suggests that the President was fully aware that Flynn was in legal trouble when he met with former FBI Director Comey in February and requested him to end the FBI investigation, an action that some legal experts view as obstruction of justice and shows interference of a federal investigation concerning a senior cabinet member in the White House.

Although former FBI Director Comey testified in early June that President Trump asked him to end the FBI investigation of Michael Flynn, President Trump disputed that claim in a Sunday tweet in which he claimed that he never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn and accused Comey of lying.

“I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn. Just more Fake News covering another Comey lie” Trump tweeted.

President Trump also criticized the FBI on Sunday when he tweeted that its reputation is in “Tatters” and “worst in History!”
