Assistant Watergate Special Prosecutor lists 8 times Trump committed crimes in office — so far

President Donald Trump has potentially committed obstruction of justice on eight different occasions since taking office in January, a renowned prosecutor told MSNBC host Chris Hayes. “I want to point out that the number of episodes of possible obstruction are not limited to just firing Mr. Comey,” Assistant Watergate Special Prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks said. “He first fired the person who told him that Flynn had been compromised and could be a problem — Sally Yates.”

“Then he told Comey, don’t investigate Flynn, ‘couldn’t you drop it?'” Wine-Banks continued. “When he didn’t drop it, he got fired.” “The false statements that he drafted for his son about the June meeting is another possible obstruction,” Wine-Banks listed. “The promise of pardons to all of the other people involved in this is another possible obstruction.” “The message he sent with the Arpaio pardon: ‘don’t worry, you don’t have to cooperate, I’ll pardon you if you are held in contempt,'” Wine-Banks continued. “His asking Sessions to intervene and drop the Arpaio” [prosecution]. “There’s a number of things that to go obstruction well beyond this,” Wine-Banks concluded.
