Dem Sen Blumenthal: Trump Not Releasing Dem Memo and ‘Blanket Release’ of Nunes’ Is ‘Evidence of Obstruction of Justice’

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) argued that President Trump’s refusal to release the Democratic House Intelligence memo and “blanket release” of the Nunes memo “is more evidence obstruction of justice.”

Blumenthal said, “There is a credible case of obstruction of justice against Donald Trump. His refusal to release this memo, as well as his blanket release of the Nunes memo without even having read it or — making a decision before he read it is more evidence of obstruction of justice. It’s not alone, but it does go to corrupt intent, which is one of the two essential elements in any charge of obstruction, the other being interference with a lawful investigation. It goes to motive and intent.”
