Legal Expert Reveals Trump Just Virtually Gave a Televised Confession to a Felony

Popular vote loser Donald Trump is not a smart man.  After news broke that the FBI had obtained a search warrant and raided the office of Michael Cohen , Trump’s former head lawyer, Trump went on a long, semi-coherent rant in a meeting with military leaders in which he basically admitted obstructing justice by trying to “keep it down.”
Here’s what Trump said:
“So, I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys — a good man. And it’s a disgraceful situation. It’s a total witch hunt. I’ve been saying it for a long time. I’ve wanted to keep it down. We’ve given, I believe, over a million pages’ worth of documents to the special counsel.
“They continue to just go forward. And here we are talking about Syria and we’re talking about a lot of serious things. We’re the greatest fighting force ever. And I have this witch hunt constantly going on for over 12 months now, and actually, much more than that. You could say it was right after I won the nomination, it started.
“And it’s a disgrace. It’s, frankly, a real disgrace. It’s an attack on our country, in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for.
“So, when I saw this and when I heard it — I heard it like you did — I said, that is really now on a whole new level of unfairness .
 
“How is this NOT Obstruction of Justice?”, Says Lawyer
There’s a lot to unpack in that rant, but let’s focus on the part where Trump admits to trying to keep the investigation down, which is obstruction.

Seth Abramson explains:

2/ This was said in the context of Trump saying (again) that AG Jeff Sessions would not have been appointed if Trump had known he wasn’t going to oversee the Russia probe in the way Trump approved of, which, he was saying, was any way that would “keep [the investigation] down.”
3/ And yes, Trump *did* just describe the execution of a valid federal search warrant as a break-in (“They just broke in…”) When are Republicans going to jump off this sinking ship?
