just provided cover for Trump for firing Comey then there is obstruction. How does the moron not get that Trump can fire Comey cause he did not like his tie that day?????

Gawd this soooooo stupid

Haven't read the quote you're referring to, but Trump can't fire someone in order to obstruct an investigation. He can fire them for their tie choice, however.

The FBI director serves at the pleasure of the president. Trump can shirt can him if he likes.... he could have even pardoned Flynn if he wanted to.

You choice of words "in order to obstruct an investigation" is peculiar. You're trying to tie this into Nixon when this just doesn't fit. There was no investigation into Trump.

What I meant is that Trump cannot obstruct an investigation (any investigation). Full stop. If his intent was to do so by firing Comey, that is illegal. If his intent was to fire Comey for wearing the wrong tie, then yes that would be legal.

That's not true.

Got it.

Special counsel is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice, officials say - The Washington Post
