Trump and Obstruction of Justice

Austin Mizelle

Background Info

President Donald J. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for "failure to enforce the job of Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation of the United States." Days before this, Comey asked for more information on the Russian Involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

Thesis

I believe that Donald Trump should be impeached for obstruction of justice. He fired FBI Director James Comey days after Comey asked for more information on the Russian Involvement in the US 2016 Presidential Election. He also fired Comey in a very sudden and suspicious manner.

The event

On May 10th, Donald Trump spoke with Russian Foreign Ambassador Sergey Kislyak and is rumored to have revealed Classified Information.

Manner it which Comey was fired

Comey was fired very suddenly and without warning. This is very odd behavior as in many different jobs, employees are given warning months in advanced to when they are to be released. Comey however, was to be released immediately.
