Robert Mueller's report backs the argument that President Donald Trump obstructed justice during the Russia investigation, assert Paul Waldman and Greg Sargent of The Washington Post. He made a great effort to hide information from the public eye that was damaging to him, as well as trying to stop Mueller's probe, which was essential for Americans to understand what really happened. Clear examples of obstruction included asking James Comey for loyalty and demanding that Donald McGahn fire Mueller. Luckily for Trummp, he was repeatedly unsuccessful in committing clear breaches of the law, and only because his subordinates didn't comply with his orders.
Democrats appear convinced that they have a strong obstruction case against President Trump. However, it's unlikely that they will make any breakthroughs, as Robert Mueller's claims will be hard to prove, believes Byron York of The Washington Examiner. What's crucial here is that the president never actually interfered with or halted investigations into Russia's interference in the 2016 US election. Mueller, himself, clearly said that he didn't have the evidence to prove that Trump broke the law. He was unable to uncover a conspiracy with Russia. So far, most accusations of obstruction against Trump have relied on too much guesswork to be infallible.
