Comey Memo Says Trump Asked Him to End Flynn Investigation

According to notes taken by former FBI director James Comey after a meeting with the president—the sort of notes which are almost always admissible in court—the president directly asked Comey to stop the investigation of Michael Flynn.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go,” Mr. Trump told Mr. Comey, according to the memo. “He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go.”

Isn’t that obstruction of justice?
