Ted Lieu: If Trump Fired Rosenstein Over NYT Report, ‘It Would Be Obstruction of Justice’
MELBER: "My thanks to Matt and Gabe. I turn it as promised to congressman Ted Lieu. The House committees are responding. What do you think is significant?"
LIEU: “Well, I don’t think a lot is significant because in terms of the 25th Amendment, people have been talking about that in the White House for a long time. Omarosa said it was so routine they had a hashtag for it, tfa. What’s alarming would be people who didn’t think about the 25th Amendment. Anyone watching this would have thought about it. None of this appeared to have been executed. He didn’t seem to have taped anything, he didn't seem to have gone much further with the 25th Amendment talks. This would not be enough to fire Rod Rosenstein. If he did, it would be obstruction of justice.”
