Based on his recent testimony, FBI Director James Comey “appears” to be “confessing to a crime,” said Rep. Gohmert (R-TX).
Gohmert told Fox News that if – as Comey’s reported memo suggests – President Trump attempted to obstruct the Michael Flynn investigation, then Comey may be guilty of something too.
“I’m amazed that an FBI director and former prosecutor would be confessing to a crime the way that it appears that he is,” Gohmert said.
He said that under 18 U.S. Code Section 4, Comey is required by law to report any attempt – including by the President of the United States – to obstruct a federal investigation.
