Ted Lieu: Trump’s Engaging in Criminal Witness Tampering of Roger Stone

‘It looks to me in this case that Donald Trump is attempting to persuade Roger Stone to keep him from testifying’


LIEU: "I think it's attempt to persuade Roger Stone to not testify. That by itself would violate the witness tampering statute. It could also violate a separate statute, which is obstruction of justice, which simply requires, again, Donald Trump to merely attempt to influence a federal investigation with corrupt intent. A lot of this centers on the intent of Donald Trump. I think it’s pretty clear what his intent is, it’s to protect himself and his family, and that is corrupt intent."
