Let's get to the bottom of this nonsense.......that led to 34 indictments, convictions and/or guilty pleas, spelled out exactly how Russia interfered in the 2016 election to ensure their poodle Trump won, and with any luck will lead to the poodle's indictment for obstruction when he's defeated in 2020, as per the consensus that he'd have been charged now if not the President.
You can’t obstruct justice for a “crime” your not guilty of or did not exist.
I am trying to avoid this nonsense - but how is anyone convinced by this garbage? Of course you can obstruct justice regardless of whether you are found guilty of the underlying crime or in your distorted view, the crime "did not exist" - whatever that means.
That is like saying you can not be guilty of witness tampering, bribing witnesses, bribing jurors, etc., if "the crime did not exist" or one is found not guilty. It is preposterous. There is also a basic crime known as the attempted crime (bet it murder, theft, kidnapping etc.) which does not require succesful completion of the crime but is focused on intent and effort - all of which has completely been ignored by the sycophants who want so hard to believe their poor Trump is a victim. Spare me
