WASHINGTON-The Latest on the removal of a veteran FBI agent from the special counsel's investigative team (all times local):
The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee says the panel is starting to see "the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice" against President Donald Trump.
Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press," California Democrat Dianne Feinstein said the evidence is coming partly from "the continual tweets" from the White House. Trump is focusing renewed attacks on the FBI, and on the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, two days after ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn agreed to cooperate with the probe as part of a plea agreement.
Feinstein said she believes Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey came "directly because he did not agree to lift the cloud of the Russia investigation." She added, "That's obstruction of justice."
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham is warning Trump to tread cautiously, telling CBS' "Face the Nation" that Trump's comments about ongoing criminal investigations come at his "own peril."

Potential evidence of obstruction of justice charges against POTUS in his tweets? Implying his tweets are, in fact, obstruction.
As if a POTUS could be charged with Obstruction of Justice.
It's nearly the stupidest thing I have heard in my lifetime.
Whatever caused old Dianne Feinstein [friend of the arms smuggling California Democrat Yee] to get all pasty faced after that briefing earlier this year like she’d seen a ghost... it was not obstruction of justice via “tweetstorm.”
C’mon, Dianne, what was it?
She is facing a primary challenge in 2018 in CA.
It’s time for her to go full commie.
She’s saying that like he “lost” tens of thousands of emails, several blackberry devices, and wiped his server with a cloth or something.
she knows damn well that the only road they have is impeachment. But Pelosi has reminded her that impeachment doesn’t play well for the dems.
So the tactic is throw as much mud as they can, try to gain majorities, then impeach.
So a Potus has to take a vow of silence when sworn in?
Soooo, when President Obama said that there was “not a smidgeon of corruption” regarding the IRS scandal, was that obstruction of justice? What about when he said that Hillary did not pose a threat to national security with her emails?
I think our government had better tread carefully. There are lots of people who will think our government has taken over, and has disregarded the the shackles of our constitution. It seems the swamp is very nearly losing all pretense of being a legitimate governing body.
It’s too bad the President can’t FIRE Congress Critters
thats funny...a week before he was fired, Comey testified Trump or anyone else pressured him to stop his investigation....AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA...Comey got pissed after Trump canned him, then came up with the lame “i took notes meeting”,that was the best he could do.
I fear Dianne Fine-Swine’s cheese has fallen off her cracker.
It has and a large part of the country sees something different and it does not favor DF and her incestuous mob of traitors
You get post of the day and it is more than just the people that think this way.
Trying to control the news cycle when Mueller’s team is screwing up.
The only obstruction of justice involving Demonicrat Dianne Feinstein is whatever is keeping her from being tried, convicted and sentenced to be publicly hanged as a lying murdering traitor.
Oh they want him to stop tweeting so bad.
The arrogance of the Deep State will be their undoing. They will go one step too far (no doubt emboldened by the absence of protest) and the backlash will a sh!t storm.
There will be no place to hide.
As another poster on another thread said, Trump was just following Rosenstein’s recommendation to fire Comey, a recommendation which is documented on DoJ letterhead, and Rosenstein was his direct supervisor. A recommendation that Rosenstein said he still supported when he testified to congress later.
