Ted Lieu: Trump Firing Comey over the Russia Probe Is ‘Textbook Obstruction of Justice’

‘There was great pressure from the Russian investigation, and he fired Comey to relieve that pressure’

RUSH EXCERPT:
LIEU: "The most important thing is see what the president said in his own words. Went on national TV with Lester holt, said he fired him because of the Russia investigation, and what’s more important, told the Russian ambassador he fired Comey because there was great pressure from the Russian investigation, and he fired Comey to relieve that pressure. That’s textbook obstruction of justice."
