Andrew C. McCarthy, NRO: Can You Obstruct a Fraud?
Maybe Trump objected to the fraudulent notion, which Comey led the world to believe, that Trump was under investigation for collusion.
On March 30, 2017, by his own account, then-FBI director James Comey told President Donald Trump that Trump himself was not under investigation — the third time he had given him that assurance. In fact, Comey told Trump that he had just assured members of Congress that Trump was not a suspect under investigation.
Think about that.

WNU Editor: Exactly .... think about that. If Congress knew in March that President Trump was not under investigation .... why did they and their allies in the media push an entirely different story .... that there is/was an investigation that Trump colluded with the Russians.
Think about that .... and then read the rest of Andrew C. McCarthy's post.
On a side note .... Stephen L. Carter at Bloomberg is saying what I said last night that leaks from the Special Counsel's office is destroying the investigation .... Leakers Mess With the Trump Investigation (Stephen L. Carter, Bloomberg). The only thing that I would add now is that it is too late .... the entire process has already been tainted. I expect more leaks from the Special Counsel's office .... the only thing that I would then want to know is what will President Trump do.
On another side note .... earlier today I expressed my outrage over this "poisonous" New York Times editorial .... New York Times Editor's Uses Yesterday's Shooting Of GOP Congressmen To Attack Sarah Palin. The New York Times has since issued a "correction" .... but the damage has already been done. Some are now pushing Sarah Palin to sue the New York Times .... Sarah Palin Threatens Lawsuit Against New York Times for ‘Libel and Slander’ (Washington Free Beacon). And while I know that such lawsuits are difficult to prosecute in the U.S. .... IMHO she does have a good case, and I hope that she proceeds.
