ABC’s Hostin: Trump Is ‘Dog-Whistling’ Witness Tampering

Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Senior Legal Analyst for ABC News said President Donald Trump’s praise of Roger Stone for refusing to testify was “dog-whistling to these witnesses.”

Hostin said, “Trump is tweeting out all this stuff, and you know obstruction of justice is tampering with a witness, and that’s a federal crime.”

Joy Behar, “He’s walking a thin line with those tweets.”

Hostin added, “These veiled threats, he is giving Mueller more ammunition. It’s a federal crime to say, ‘You don’t need to testify, you should testify. That guy is cool because he’s not testifying. I haven’t forgotten about my pardon power.’ All that kind of stuff is dog whistling to these witnesses. It’s inappropriate.”
