Last night, the Washington Post broke the story that President Trump is officially personally under investigation for obstruction of justice.

A special counsel headed by Robert S. Mueller III is investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice as part of the larger investigation into Russia’s actions regarding the 2016 election.

The investigation focused on Trump a few days after he fired the former FBI Director James Comey. In his testimony last week, Comey confirmed that Trump was not under investigation personally but said he was hesitant to discuss it publicly lest the circumstances change. And oh, have the circumstances changed.

On his seventy-first birthday, the world learned that President Donald J. Trump is under investigation for obstruction of justice. It’s important to note that obstruction of justice is an impeachable offense. It’s also important to note that President Trump used to say that Hillary Clinton was unfit to be President because of an FBI investigation focused on her e-mails.

Oh, the irony.

Happy birthday, President Trump! TC mark
