    Did Lewandowski's testimony today suggest Trump attempted to obstruct justice?

    Obstruction Of Justice Legal Definition | Merriam-Webster Law Dictionary

    Lewandowski admitted that the president sent him with a message to Sessions that he either limit or stop the investigation or Sessions would be fired. It would seem that such a request and the actions that followed would suggest that Trump was attempting to control or even halt the investigation. Would that constitute obstruction of justice or not in your opinion?

    Re: Did Lewandowski's testimony today suggest Trump attempted to obstruct justice?

    Lewandowski repeatedly admitted he lied his butt off when he did the media circles...on FOX, on MSNBC.
    His excuse: everyone else does it and its not against the law.

    Of course Trump tried to use his personal attorney, someone not even working in government, to relay his absolutely stupid speech for Jeff, to Jeff, outside of official government channels. No phone, no official meeting, no government staff...Trump's personal attorney and bull-dog asked to meet in person outside of DOJ to relay his stupid speech to Jeff. The speech was a typical Trump speech, sounds like all his others, completely phony.

    But of course, the speech was supposed to be that Jeff Sessions the sitting AG, would claim he is no longer recused, and would also table the Mueller investigation,but would agree to investigate any FUTURE presidents. We know Trump and his nutters are liars, that's been the case since month 3. WE know they lied about all the Russia stuff in the media, and then under oath had to tell the truth (and evidence their lies). (then cry fake news for a cherry on top).

    Republican voters *support* this behavior. We have 100+ posters here who do the same.

    Corey Lewandowski has always been a complete asshole and today he merely continued that person. It should have come as no surprise to anyone.

    Obstruction of Justice: "the crime or act of willfully interfering with the process of justice and law especially by influencing, threatening, harming, or impeding a witness, potential witness, juror, or judicial or legal officer or by furnishing false information in or otherwise impeding an investigation or legal process"

    So, did Sessions receive any notification by Trump or anyone associated with Trump? No. So, Session was never threatened, harmed. The investigation by Mueller was not impeded in any way and Mueller testified to that before Congress. So, by definition, no Obstruction of Justice. Trump may have wanted to obstruct but it never happened. Now, if Sessions were to say he did receive a letter or other communication from Trump that told him to stop the investigation then there may be a case. However, it never happened.

    The Democrat Congresspersons were complete assholes today as well. Lewandowski was answering the questions the only way he could. You may not like it but he did. The only real question is did anyone get through to Sessions with a message from Trump impeding the Mueller investigation? The answer is still no.

    It's interesting the Mueller Report didn't conclude anything you say. And, Lewandowski did not demand Session stop the investigation. He simply didn't want Sessions to recuse himself. The rest of your assertion is false.

    I disagree. basically Lewandowski said he was ordered by Trump to shut up and not tell them anything which could hurt him. He was there to thwart justice and protect his old boss. One criminal looking out for the other.

    Re: Did Lewandowski's testimony today suggest Trump attempted to obstruct justice?

    Jerry Nadler got Corey Lewandowski to show the entire world that he's a liar and that he's proud that he's a liar. He got him to admit that he had a motive to deliver the message to Sessions because he was trying to get a job at the White House so he was doing Trump's bidding. He was caught in a lie right in front of our eyes on television.

    Sessions refused to un-recuse himself and Don McGahn refused to fire Jeff Sessions. They both refused to do what Trump asked them to do. Corey Lewandowski was his faithful soldier and did what Trump told him to do. Clearly, these two instances of Jeff Sessions and Don McGahn are obstruction of justice.

    And Corey Lewandowski felt that he would make a big non-statement today in front of Congress and the world and win a lot of votes in New Hampshire for his bid for Senate. What a joke. He should go crawl back into the black hole he came out of and just disappear, he's a useless tool. Trump instructed him to obstruct justice, that was made crystal clear today.

    And his attitude of superiority and brash defiance of Congress is simply shameful. This is mob behavior.
