Is President Donald Trump above the law?

Legislators in the US Congress are looking into the possibility of introducing articles of impeachment against Donald Trump for alleged obstruction of justice.

    Donald Trump's lawyer says he cannot be found guilty of obstruction of justice because of his rights as US president.

    Over the weekend, Trump posted a tweet that implied he knew his former adviser Michael Flynn had committed a felony when he directed the former FBI director James Comey to go easy on him.

    Some in Congress suggested that, regardless of the criminal case, Trump could face articles of impeachment related to his possible obstruction of justice.
