In recent weeks, Watergate experts have surfaced to explain why the Trump administration has undoubtedly committed crimes and will soon implode. The latest person to emerge to state her case is Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks. Wine-Banks appeared on CNN’s All in with Chris Hayes to discuss her thoughts on crimes committed by the president.
She stated, “I was asked in May whether I thought I could make an obstruction case, I said ‘I thought I could’ … I know I can. There is so much evidence now, and as was said, it’s not one piece, it’s the total picture. The pieces of the puzzle are fitting together and they spell obstruction.”
Wine-Banks added, “You don’t need an underlying crime for the crime of obstruction. To impede an investigation, whether you were part of the original crime or not, you have committed a separate crime: Obstruction of justice.”
She went on to explain, “It is also a possible obstruction of justice, witness intimidation, and it’s obstructing justice by saying to agents, ‘You better not dig too deep, you better not find anything because I will attack you. And this is the president of the United States, it is congressmen who have a national audience and can make people’s lives miserable.”
Do you agree with Wine-Banks?
