Trump must be hauled up for obstruction of justice as he has been repeatedly attacking the U.S. justice system and commenting obnoxiously on Mueller investigation.

Until caught, every thief in the world is a saint. That also holds true for the mischievous U.S. president Donald Trump.
While the investigation by the special counsel Robert Mueller to probe Trump-Russia ties is in progress, Trump keeps screaming every now and then that there was no collusion with Russia.
That’s what he did today when he said “no collusion” once again. But for a change, Trump admitted that Russia has been meddling in U.S. affairs.
“Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President. The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!” Trump said.

But if there was no collusion, why can’t Trump sit quietly and let Mueller investigation happen without any encumbrance? How can Trump – who is an accused in the Russian inference case – pronounce the judgment on his own case in which he is expected to be interrogated?
Similarly, Trump is not supposed to conclude that Russian interference did not impact the election results while there is a strong possibility that Russia helped Trump win the election. The Mueller probe is also expected to find out the collusion impact on election results.
In fact, Trump is leaving no stone unturned to scuttle the investigation against him and his associates while there is ample evidence that he won the November 2016 election with Russia’s support.
Last year, Great America Alliance, an advocacy organization supporting Trump agenda, released an ad that questioned the independence and credibility of Mueller investigation.
Mueller is investigating Trump and his close associates for an attempt to derail fired FBI director James Comey’s probe into Trump’s collusion with Russia that helped him win the presidential election.
Trump must be hauled up for obstruction of justice as he has been repeatedly attacking the U.S. justice system and commenting obnoxiously on Mueller investigation without waiting for the outcome of the investigation.
Meanwhile, an online petition on a dedicated “Need to Impeach” website claims that it has collected nearly 5 million signatures of Americans who want impeachment of Trump.
