Lee: No evidence that Trump obstructed justice (with video)

Sen. Mike Lee said Sunday that, even if former FBI Director James Comey is telling the truth, there’s still no evidence that President Trump came close to obstructing justice.

Lee was a guest on ABC’s This Week where he said Comey’s account that Trump asked him to back off the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn doesn’t amount to obstruction by the president.

“I don’t see any evidence of intent to obstruct,” the Utah senator added. “I don’t see any indication that there was even the potential for corruption here or for obstruction of justice.”


Lee also said he had concerns about Comey’s decision to give memos about his conversations with Trump to a friend, who shared them with The New York Times.

Lee also said he hasn’t seen “even a scintilla” of evidence that there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.
