Here on the Brian Lehrer Show, we'll follow the fast-developing Russia investigation news on every week day in June.
The Washington Post's congressional reporter Ed O'Keefe talks about how those on the Hill and in the White House are responding to Comey’s highly publicized and politicized testimony. The main question that came out of it was: did the president commit an obstruction of justice with the way he dealt with the FBI director?
When it comes to examining Trump's behavior, many on the Hill are coming to his defense by saying that he's a novice. But O'Keefe says, "Ignorance of the law is no excuse." Plus, O'Keefe gave us some new coinage:
Trump + Russia = Trussia. Thanks for the new word @edatpost #trussia https://t.co/KNat2E45nV
