Pascrell Blasts Apparent Trump Obstruction of Justice
Washington, February 19, 2019
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-N.J.-09) issued a statement in response to a New York Times investigation that Donald Trump may have committed obstruction of justice in instructing his acting Attorney General to meddle in an active Justice Department criminal probe.
“If this disturbing New York Times report is accurate, then the President of the United States committed obstruction of justice. That the President would seek to impede a criminal investigation in his home Manhattan makes abundantly clear, yet again, that Congress must see his business and personal tax records. Any leader of this nation that seeks to tamper with a criminal investigation is unfit to serve and must resign.”
