Special Counsel Robert Mueller is Investigating Trump for Possible Obstruction of Justice, Officials Say

Devlin Barrett, Adam Entous, Ellen Nakashima, and Sari Horwitz – The Washington Post:

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said.

The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump’s conduct marks a major turning point in the nearly year-old FBI investigation …

As though he’s following a “didn’t learn anything from Watergate” script: it’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up.

The Post’s sources indicate Mr. Trump was not, as former FBI Director Comey assured him more than once, personally under investigation, until Comey was fired. The president has that authority, but terminating the lead investigator into his administration’s possible wrong-doing and then bragging about it to the Russian delegation is a de-facto admission of interference.

No wonder these jokers were trying to discredit Bob Mueller earlier this week.

Again, seems a big deal.
