Feinstein on Russia Probe: We Are Beginning to See a ‘Case of Obstruction of Justice’

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said in the investigation headed by special counsel Robert Mueller that we were “beginning to see of the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice.”

Feinstein said, “I would begin by saying this, as you know, I’m ranking on Judiciary, and the Judiciary Committee has an investigation going as well. It involves obstruction of justice. I think what we’re beginning to see of the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice. I think we see this in the indictments, the four indictments and pleas that have just taken place and some of the comments that are being made. I see it in the hyper phonetic attitude of the White House, the comments, the continual Tweets. And I see it most important in what happened with the firing of Director Comey, and it is my belief that that is directly because he did not agree to lift the cloud of the Russia investigation. That’s obstruction of justice.”

She added, “I would assume that many in the White House are under investigation in this. I would assume, you know, I do not believe that General Flynn was a rogue agent.”
