Jeffrey Toobin, senior legal analyst for CNN, had strong words following the release of the opening statement of former FBI Director James Comey’s congressional testimony to be given Thursday.
“Comey’s statement establishes obstruction of justice by Trump. Period,” Toobin said in a tweet.
The take comes in response to Comey’s detailing of his meetings Trump, stating that Trump asked for “loyalty” from the FBI director and that he encouraged him to “let go” the Michael Flynn investigation.
All that is left now is Comey’s testimony itself, set for Thursday morning, before we get an answer to the accuracy of Toobin’s declaration.
Comey’s statement establishes obstruction of justice by Trump. Period.
