Donald Trump could be guilty of obstruction of justice over son's statement on Russia meeting, says former White House ethics lawyerDonald Trump could be guilty of obstruction of justice and should resign if reports alleging he dictated his son’s misleading statement on a meeting with a Russian lawyer are found to be true, George W Bush’s former chief ethics lawyer has said. “We have repeated instances of obstruction of justice, this being yet one more,” Richard Painter told Brian Williams on MSNBC’s The 11th Hour. Mr Painter’s comments come after the Washington Post reported on Monday that the US President crafted a statement, later shown to be misleading, in which his son Donald Trump Jr said a meeting he had with a Russian lawyer in June 2016 was not related to his father’s presidential campaign.
