    No. That commentary was clearly delusional.
    The President has every right to comment if he so chooses.
    It could also be argued that the public is entitled to know the President's position.

    Thank god for un-corruptible judges who have integrity and wont be bullied by these two. Case and point, Andy McCabe. This is just the beginning folks. The DOJ corruption is just starting to get exposed.

    Lame nonsense.

    Wrong, and he didn't interfere.

    Irrelevant to the President having every right to comment like he did.

    Article Two is quite specific as to emoluments.
