MSNBC Guest: ‘It Absolutely Is’ Obstruction of Justice Trump’s Investigating Uranium One During Mueller Probe

‘The statute says if you try to impede a federal investigation, then you are guilty of a federal felony’
By Grabien Staff

RUSH EXCERPT:
REID: "Would these attempts to distract from the investigation, even attempting to unseal or remove the gag order from an FBI informant in order to further what is essentially a side investigation that they're pursuing, is that in itself an element of obstruction?"
BUTLER: "It absolutely is. The statute says if you try to impede a federal investigation, then you are guilty of a federal felony. And with Donald Trump, it's not just that he asked for a pledge of loyalty from his FBI director. It's not only that he asked the national security intelligence folks if there's any way they could thwart the investigations, not only that he reaches out to Michael Flynn after he's been fired and tell him to keep your head up. I'll see what I can do. It's this attitude that he has."
