Laying out the case that Trump obstructed justice

The Brookings Institute has released a report that outlines the case that President Donald Trump obstructed justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey. Authors Barry Berke, Noah Bookbinder and Norman Eisen “break down and analyze” whether the president may have obstructed justice, and what ramifications may follow. The Washington Post says the report amounts to “an amicus brief for use by special counsel Robert S. Muller III and his team.” The authors state that “the public record contains substantial evidence that President Trump conspired to obstruct justice with senior members of his administration although the public facts regarding conspiracy are less well developed.”
