OBSTRUCTION AGAIN: A Familiar Accusation Aimed at Trump Once Again

Linkedin Share

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

That seems to be the motto of the political opponents of former President Donald Trump, who’ve thrown just about everything in their bag of trick at Teflon Don.  But, as we can tell by the present circumstances and the continued use of that nickname, nothing at all is looking to stick.

RussiaGate, two impeachments, the Mueller report, January 6th…you name it, Trump has avoided it.

Now, in a familiar reprisal of an earlier attempt to make trouble for Trump, the DOJ is suggesting that “obstruction” may be back on the menu.

The Justice Department says classified documents were “likely concealed and removed” from a storage room at former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate as part of an effort to obstruct the federal investigation into the discovery of the government records.

The FBI also seized boxes and containers holding more than 100 classified records during its Aug. 8 search of Mar-a-Lago and found classified documents stashed in Trump’s office, according to a filing late Tuesday that lays out the most detailed chronology to date of months of strained interactions between Justice Department officials and Trump representatives over the discovery of government secrets.

Trump has repeatedly stated that the documents in question had already been declassified, which refutes the DOJ’s entire case.

Trump was also informally accused of obstruction of justice during the Mueller probe, but no charges were ever filed against him.
