Fmr. U.S. Attorney: There Is No Criminal Case that Trump Obstructed Justice

“Quite frankly [Comey’s] story doesn’t rise to the level of the intent necessary,” Whitaker explained.

Former U.S. Attorney Matthew Whitaker said there is “no criminal case to be made” against President Trump on an obstruction of justice charge following former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony on Thursday.

“There is no criminal case to be made on an obstruction of justice,” Whitaker told a panel on CNN. “We have the star witness that testified, and quite frankly, his story doesn’t rise to the level of the intent necessary on behalf of the president to even substantiate a criminal case.”
