Even as news breaks each weekly, the most perilous part of the Russian investigation from President Donald Trump’s standpoint is yet to come. Today, Mayor Rudy Giuliani has joined the President’s legal team and made it clear his client is still considering meeting with the Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But the FBI raids on the office, home and hotel room of longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen represent a stunning law enforcement aggressiveness that casts long shadows over prior reports that President Trump is not currently considered a target.
In prosecutors’ parlance, “Target” means there is a likelihood of being indicted based on existing evidence. So not being a target might have seemed like good news for the White House, but any such status is subject to change. Since the Special Counsel is still apparently insisting on interviewing the President, that Interview could change everything. Obstruction of justice is traditionally focused upon fabricating, concealing or destroying evidence – or lying to federal investigators – rather than firing an FBI director. And so the making of false statements could risk the unmaking of a President.
