Former federal prosecutors sign a letter saying Trump obstructed justice

More than 600 former federal prosecutors signed a statement on Monday stating that Donald Trump would’ve been charged with obstruction of justice if he weren’t the U.S. president. They say the actions described in the Mueller report “satisfy all of the elements for an obstruction charge.” The prosecutors’ document offers a rebuttal to Attorney General William Barr’s conclusion that the Mueller report does not offer “sufficient” evidence that Trump committed a crime.
