The attorney for Donald Trump who sought to take the blame for a tweet that could signal the president took part in the obstruction of justice has offered a new defence of Trump's actions: the president cannot obstruct justice. "The president cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer under [the constitution's Article II] and has every right to express his view of any case," John Dowd told the Axios website. ... Axios quoted Bob Bauer, a New York University law professor and former White House counsel to Barack Obama, as saying: "It is certainly possible for a president to obstruct justice." read more

Some stuff to keep in the back of your mind, from last February when Flynn resigned.

The White House had examined a transcript of a wiretapped conversation that Mr. Flynn had with Mr. Kislyak in December, according to administration officials. Mr. Flynn originally told Mr. Pence and others that the call was limited to small talk and holiday pleasantries.
But the conversation, according to officials who saw the transcript of the wiretap, also included a discussion about sanctions imposed on Russia after intelligence agencies determined that President Vladimir V. Putin's government tried to interfere with the 2016 election on Mr. Trump's behalf. Still, current and former administration officials familiar with the call said the transcript was ambiguous enough that Mr. Trump could have justified either firing or retaining Mr. Flynn.

We now know this is a lie. The transition team was involved throughout the entire discussion that Flynn had with Russia. They didn't need to review a transcript.
