Fox News’ Lisa Boothe on Friday bizarrely claimed that former President Barack Obama obstructed justice in 2016 when he gave an interview to her network colleague Chris Wallace.
While discussing a report that special counsel Robert Mueller is planning to scrutinize some of President Donald Trump’s public statements to potentially make an argument for obstruction of justice, Boothe made a highly dubious claim that Obama was guilty of the same offense during a 2016 interview with Wallace.
“President Obama obstructed justice when he told Chris Wallace that Hillary Clinton did not put our national security at risk when she was under investigation by the FBI,” she said.
Of course, Obama never personally asked former FBI Director James Comey for “loyalty” as Trump allegedly did, and he also never asked Comey if he could drop the investigation into Clinton as Trump allegedly did with the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Boothe went on to say that the “only” case that could be made for obstructing justice against Trump was in his firing of Comey, although she then pointed out that many Democrats had wanted Comey fired for his decision to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server just eleven days before the 2016 presidential election.

Trump is only visiting India ‘because he’s obsessed with crowd sizes’: Bollywood Star
A famous Indian filmmaker took a jab at President Trump on Twitter this Sunday, saying that his trip to India likely satiated his need for large crowd sizes after Trump addressed an audience in the Motera stadium in Ahmedabad in Gujarat, the home state of India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Indian director and producer Ram Gopal Varma started out by wondering if the money India spent by welcoming Trump would be reciprocated by Americans.
"We Indians spent thousands of crores in welcoming @realDonaldTrump," Gopal tweeted. "but will Americans spend even thousands of rupees in welcoming @narendramodi to the US? That says about America and not India ...Just saying!"
In extradition bid, US accuses Assange of endangering sources
A lawyer for the United States on Monday accused WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange of risking the lives of intelligence sources by publishing classified US government documents, as his extradition hearing opened in a London court.
Assange faces charges under the US Espionage Act for the 2010 release by his whistleblowing website of a trove of files detailing the realities of US military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Assange spent much of the past decade holed up in Ecuador's London embassy to avoid separate legal proceedings in Sweden, but Washington is now seeking his transfer from Britain to stand trial.
‘Money hungry mannequin’ Ivanka Trump buried for her taxpayer-funded ‘field trip’ to India with her dad
Ivanka Trump was hammered on Twitter for posting pictures of her trip to India where she praised the "grandeur" of the Taj Mahal -- with herself featured front and center before it.
Donald Trump's daughter, a senior White House adviser, has taken to using her Twitter feed to promote herself (usually via photos or video clips) as she travels the world, presumably representing the United States. Monday morning's tweet was no exception, with the two pictures accompanied by, "The grandeur and beauty of the Taj Mahal is awe inspiring!" followed by emojis of the American flag and India's flag.
