Ed Markey: If Trump Invokes Exec. Privilege It Will Raise Question of Obstruction of Justice
MARKEY: "Yeah. That would actually create a complete mess of this investigation, of the potential Russian interference in the American elections. I think that the American people have a right to know whether or not in fact President Trump asked Jim Comey to pledge his loyalty to Donald Trump. Whether or not he asked Comey to let the Flynn investigation go. Whether or not he told the president that for on three separate occasions that he — that president was not under investigation. Because we have to get answers to those questions. If the president attempts to envoc executive privilege, that would just continue to raise the question of obstruction of justice, which the very firing of Jim Comey has raised in the minds of the American people."
