Legal expert: Inspector general has the 'obligation to shut up' after Trump tries to shut down investigation


Benjamin Wittes of Lawfare says on Morning Joe about the DOJ report on James Comey, "The remarkable thing about this report is that the inspector general of the Justice Department has effectively taken the position that if you are a law enforcement officer and the president tries to shutdown a valid investigation, your obligation is to shut up." Joe Scarborough adds that this is reckless conclusion: That even "If they believe the president of the United States has committed a crime, they should shut up and cover up."
