Breaking news on CNN, per the New York Times, Trump told WH lawyer to tell Sessions not to recuse himself from the Russia investigation.

So, he wanted a lawyer to tell Jeff Sessions not to recuse himself, because he wanted protection from the investigation. If that isn't the definition of obstruction of justice, I am not sure what is.

This may lead to the WH lawyer being called to testify, in either Congress, or with Mueller, as to what conversations he had with Trump regarding the investigation.

My guess, Trump will claim executive privilege, but John dean testified at the Watergate hearings, about conversations he had with Nixon.

Probably time to quit and then allege it was all a giant deep state conspiracy plus liberal liberal liberal coup, just to keep the lie going.
