Trump and "obstruction of justice". Here is the language of the statute I believe would be applicable to Trump's discussions with Comey:

§ 1503. Influencing or injuring officer or juror generally
(a) Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, endeavors to influence, intimidate, or impede any grand or petit juror, or officer in or of any court of the United States, or officer who may be serving at any examination or other proceeding before any United States magistrate judge or other committing magistrate, in the discharge of his duty, or injures any such grand or petit juror in his person or property on account of any verdict or indictment assented to by him, or on account of his being or having been such juror, or injures any such officer, magistrate judge, or other committing magistrate in his person or property on account of the performance of his official duties, or corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be punished as provided in subsection (b).

The courts are public forums (and incidentally the last of the three branches to be poisoned by the virus that makes facts obsolete). We should advocate for putting Trump's order on trial. ...

President Trump's personal attacks against the judge who temporarily stayed his executive order on immigration are outrageous. But worse, they reveal he knows nothing about separation of powers, the role of the judiciary, and the rule of law. He holds whatever he views as a challenge to him with contempt, with no regard for its relevance to this earth except as it relates to him. ... See MoreSee Less
