Trump delivers one-two punch to Hillary Clinton in afternoon tweets about ‘obstruction of justice’

On Thursday afternoon, President Trump delivered a one-two punch to Hillary Clinton in two tweets about “obstruction of justice.” They follow Trump’s earlier tweets where he denounced a Washington Post report about an investigation into his possible obstruction of justice. After Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, the Justice Department appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel for the investigation. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich lashed out against Mueller for the new investigation into Trump’s possible obstruction of justice.
