MSNBC: It Might Be a Crime for Trump to Be Mad at Mitch McConnell

President Trump has expressed dissatisfaction with Mitch McConnell’s leadership of the Republican senatorial caucus. McConnell’s failures to get a healthcare overhaul passed have been very public. But the Senate has also been conducting a few independent investigations of Trump officials for their alleged collusion with Russian officials to infiltrate the 2016 election. So Trump’s notable admonitions of Majority Leader McConnell could be viewed as interference with their investigations. You need to really, really want to see it. And MSNBC does really want to see it. As some of the harshest critics of the administration, MSNBC is reading obstruction into everything Trump does. So basically, one of their legal correspondents, Barbara McQuade, thinks that Trump being mad at McConnell is evidence of “another crime.”
