Jed Shugerman was quoted in a TIME article where he analyzes if President Trump can be charged with obstruction of justice.
Many legal experts say that yes, presidents can obstruct justice just as any other citizen can. “The president is not above the law,” says Fordham University School of Law Professor Jed Shugerman. “The president has all kinds of constitutional powers, [but]he still has to obey the law in the use of those powers. Those powers still have to be legal in intent.”
