What_s more, Trump is expressing this hope about someone else, not himself.
Trump fired Comey because Comey refused to report the truth _ that the president was not under investigation and Trump felt (for legitimate reasons) as though he were being blackmailed. Asking your attorney general to tell the public the truth is not obstruction. ALLEGATION: Trump asked his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to tell Sessions to announce that the investigation was very unfair to him, and that he had done nothing wrong.
ALLEGATION: Trump praised former campaign manager Paul Manafort and Flynn when they held strong and criticized them when they rolled over. ALLEGATION: The president told disgraced former F.B.I. Mueller did not charge the president with obstruction, nor did he recommend the Department of Justice or anyone else charge the president.
Mueller did not even claim there was an obstruction charge to be made. Even the president of the United States, even if that president is Donald J. Trump, there is something every American enjoys called the presumption of innocence.
