When obstruction of justice is glaringly obvious

If interfering with Robert Mueller's investigation like this isn't obstruction of justice, what is?

Robert Mueller.

Jeff Sessions is out as attorney general, replaced by a bootlicking Trump stooge named Matt Whitaker. Given that President Trump openly said on national television in 2017 that he fired then-FBI Director James Comey to try to stop the Russia investigation, it's a safe bet that acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker — like Robert Bork before him — will be the cat's paw Trump will use to halt or impede Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe.

This would be obstruction of justice.
