Quoted in Nezavisimaya Gazeta

Evidence on Trump has become weapon in battle for Capitol
Evidence on Trump has become weapon in battle for Capitol (Nezavisimaya Gazeta)

The independent Russian newspaper Nezavisimaya Gazeta quotes me on the political ramifications of Donald Trump’s FBI scandal. I talk about the possible effect on the 2018 midterm elections and the prospect of impeachment.

Here’s my main quote in English:

Impeachment is a political, not a legal process. So the question is: does this cross the line for Republicans? Asking the director of the FBI to stop an investigation into one’s subordinate and then firing that director for continuing the investigation is obviously an obstruction of justice. It is an impeachable offense in the sense that one can argue Trump violated his oath to uphold the Constitution.
