Mueller Almost Done With Obstruction Part of Trump Probe, Sources Say

Publisher: Bloomberg
January 24, 2018

Stan Twardy was quoted in an article, "Mueller Almost Done With Obstruction Part of Trump Probe, Sources Say," published by Bloomberg. As the article reports, special counsel Robert Mueller appears to be closing in on the obstruction of justice phase of his investigation by interviewing intelligence officials and Trump aides, including Dan Coats, Michael Rogers, Jeff Sessions and James Comey.

"Clearly the names that are coming out now indicate that we're into the obstruction of justice side of it," Twardy told Bloomberg. "He's now getting people who are closest to the president, closest to the issues." According to the article, even if evidence supports an obstruction of justice charge against Trump, it's far from clear whether Mueller would bring a criminal case on those grounds. No sitting president has ever faced such a charge and it's unknown if a case could procced legally. "I don't think Mr. Mueller would ever try to make legal precedent at the expense of a sitting president in the context of an obstruction of justice charge," said Twardy.
