Fact Check: Is Newt Gingrich Right to Say a President 'Cannot' Obstruct Justice?
By Weekly Standard, June 16, 2017
Newt Gingrich defended President Trump against allegations that Trump's firing of James Comey was a crime. Gingrich's legal interpretation: "the president cannot obstruct justice." I'm not a lawyer, but neither is Newt Gingrich (he holds a Ph.D. in European history), and if I can google some legal definitions, he should be able to as well.
The wordy definition of obstruction comes from 18 U.S.C. §1503.
