-- Joe diGenova, informal Trump legal adviser
-- Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

"I think the notion that this president obstructed justice is absurd. I can't think of one thing that President Trump did to stop Mueller from doing his job."
-- Sen. Lindsey Graham
"Trump's obstruction of justice and frankly, more importantly, Trump's dereliction of duty in failing to address the issue of Russian interference in our electoral processes, are by themselves grounds for his impeachment...Add to that his recalcitrance in responding to Mueller and his stonewalling of congressional investigations and the case becomes...much more compelling than that which attended the [impeachment] recommendation with respect to Clinton. Trump's efforts [to control the narrative, tamper with witnesses, create a false impression for the American people and a false impression for the investigation] are blunter [than those of Clinton] by a thousandfold."
-- Paul Rosenzweig, senior counsel to Ken Starr
