You say this, and attack me personally and professionally, but clearly you did not check into the scope of Mueller’s investigation. It is:

  1. Anything related to election collusion between the Trump Campaign and Donald Trump.
  2. Any other matters that arise directly or indirectly from the investigation (which could certainly include obstruction of the investigation).
  3. Any other matters within the scope of 28 CFR 604(a) which is EXPLICITLY about obstruction of justice. To quote that provision:

§ 600.4 Jurisdiction.

(a)Original jurisdiction. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall be established by the Attorney General. The Special Counsel will be provided with a specific factual statement of the matter to be investigated. The jurisdiction of a Special Counsel shall also include the authority to investigate and prosecute federal crimes committed in the course of, and with intent to interfere with, the Special Counsel’s investigation, such as perjury, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, and intimidation of witnesses

You really need to be better prepared than this next time you want to take on my character or professionalism. Good day. Better luck next time.
