There are many questions concerning what former FBI Director James Comey did on his own or was ordered to do.

Talk about obstruction of justice. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on down the chain have been obstructing justice with their stonewalling on numerous requests and demands made by members of Congress and others. They are so anxious to charge President Trump with obstruction of justice that they fail to see their own guilt.
