Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, revealed on Sunday that the Senate Judiciary Committee is investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice, saying that the latest Michael Flynn developments are helping to build a case against him.
“The [Senate] Judiciary Committee has an investigation going as well and it involves obstruction of justice and I think what we’re beginning to see is the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice,” Feinstein said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “I think we see this in the four indictments and pleas that have just taken place, and some of the comments being made. I see it in the hyper-frenetic attitude of the White House, the comments every day, the continual tweets,” she added.
“I see it most importantly 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 continued, referring to former FBI Director James Comey.
“I’ve been here for 25 years now. There is a kind of instability, unpredictability; it’s one issue after the other. We’ve got major problems in the world with our allies now,” Feinstein said Sunday.
“And I think that this president is just precipitating more and more angst that’s going to lead to serious discord,” she added.
