Did Donald Trump commit obstruction of justice?
Matthew Iglesias says that "by firing James Comey, Trump has put impeachment on the table."
There needs to be a separate investigation — featuring sworn testimony from the key players and subpoenas of documents — into why Comey was fired. Was it because Trump was trying to obstruct justice?
But the National Review cautioned against political witch hunts. The Democrats were until very recently calling for Comey's resignation.
The knee-jerk impulse of Democrats to impute the decision to a potential conspiracy to cover up a crime committed by Trump tells us all we need to know about what’s wrong with our political culture in 2017.
Others say the evidence of obstruction is irrefutable.
