Comey: There ‘Might’ Be a Case for Obstruction of Justice Against Trump

‘It would depend on what all the other facts were around that, about his intent that I can’t see and you can’t see yet’

EXCERPT:

GUTHRIE: "You were fired and you were investigating the president with regard to Russia collusion and the campaign’s connection to Russia’s interference. And two, he told an interview, NBC's Lester Holt, when he fired you, the Russia investigation was at the forefront of his mind. Okay. That’s action and that is, I think, tells you intent. On those facts alone, do you have a pretty strong case of obstruction?"
COMEY: "You might. It would depend upon what all the other facts were around that, about his intent that I can’t see and you can’t see yet."
