Blumenthal: ‘There’s a Credible Case of Obstruction of Justice Against Donald Trump’
BLUMENTHAL: "There’s a credible case of obstruction of justice against Donald Trump. And his acknowledgement in a tweet over the weekend that he knew that Michael Flynn had lied when he fired Jim Comey, when he asked Comey to go lightly on Flynn, when he fired Sally Yates, when he reached out to Dan coats and asked the intelligence community to in effect dispense with its investigation. There is mounting available publicly evidence that, in fact, Donald Trump should be investigated for obstruction of justice and that there is a credible case against him. So it’s the principle of follow the money. The subpoena for Deutsch bank is extremely important today from the special counsel because it indicates that he is pursuing the possibility that those loans from Deutsche Bank, $364 million from Deutsche Bank to Donald Trump. Some of it involved in building that hotel or renovating it in Washington, may be involved in this issue."
