Ex-prosecutor tells Merrick Garland indicting Trump, difficult -- 'but it's also the right thing'

Ex-prosecutor tells Merrick Garland indicting Trump might be difficult 'but it's also the right thing'

Former federal prosecutor Elie Honig referred to Don McGahn's testimony to the Judiciary Committee as proof of the most flagrant obstruction of justice in the entirety of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia report.


"Eventually, Trump said, I need you to lie about it and make a false document about it. I don't care how strongly you want to defend Donald Trump, no president has to power to instruct someone to create a false document," Honig said, referring to Attorney General Merrick Garland's overly broad concept of executive privilege.

4. Remember, Obama nominated Garland in part because he thought he'd be acceptable to Republicans. n/t
