Former President Donald Trump admitted to obstruction of justice during a fox news interview.
Trump told fox news that he had to fire former FBI Director James Comey or he wouldn’t have been president for the full 4 years.
Trump: “Had I not fired Comey, you might not be talking to me right now about a beautiful book about four years in the White House, and we’ll see about the future. If I didn’t fire Comey, they were looking to take down the president of the United States… I don’t think could’ve survived if I didn’t fire him.”
FBI Director James Comey was investigating Trump’s relationship with Russia during the 2016 election. Trump admitted to firing him to stop that Investigation in the fox news interview.
