Dan Abrams on Case for Trump Obstruction: If BuzzFeed Report is True, ‘This is Easy’ (Mediaite

Late Thursday night, BuzzFeed News published a bombshell report stating that, according to two federal law enforcement sources, President Donald Trump directed his former attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations between the Trump Organization and Russia for a Moscow real estate project. The report says that Cohen himself told Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s team that Trump told him to lie, and that other sources and documents indicated this as well.

In light of this report, ABC News Chief Legal Analyst and Law&Crime founder Dan Abrams discussed the implications it has for a possible obstruction of justice case against Trump. In a Friday morning discussion on ABC’s Good Morning America, Abrams basically said it’s a game changer.
