Trump Attempted to Get Comey To Drop The Flynn Investigation

And that’s obstruction. Trump tried to obstruct an investigation.  He should be impeached.  End of story.

The President then returned to the topic of Mike Flynn, saying, “He is a good guy and has been through a lot.” He repeated that Flynn hadn’t done anything wrong on his calls with the Russians, but had misled the Vice President. He then said, “I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.” I replied only that “he is a good guy.” (In fact, I had a positive experience dealing with Mike Flynn when he was a colleague as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency at the beginning of my term at FBI.) I did not say I would “let this go.”

    More importantly, what did he expect the investigation would find that he needed to obstruct it?
