Trump Just Admitted to ‘Obstruction of Justice’ on Twitter
I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies. It is a shame because his actions during the transition were lawful. There was nothing to hide!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 2, 2017
Oh my god, he just admitted to obstruction of justice. If Trump knew Flynn lied to the FBI when he asked Comey to let it go, then there is your case. https://t.co/c6Wtd0TfzW— Matthew Miller (@matthewamiller) December 2, 2017
This is a pretty substantial confession to essential knowledge elements of an obstruction of justice charge. https://t.co/UpQfilPVfJ— Susan Hennessey (@Susan_Hennessey) December 2, 2017
Trump had never previously acknowledged knowing Flynn lied to the FBI at the time of the firing - and the day after the firing, he asked Comey to let Flynn slide. pic.twitter.com/dCZJSEa3Uy— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) December 2, 2017
Never tweet.*— Matthew Miller (@matthewamiller) December 2, 2017
*Especially if you’re going to tweet an admission to a crime.
