Over 1,000 former federal prosecutors have signed on to a statement saying obstruction by trump is clear and all the elements necessary to prove obstruction are present. The statement says in part:

Each of us believes that the conduct of President Trump described in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report would, in the case of any other person not covered by the Office of Legal Counsel policy against indicting a sitting President, result in multiple felony charges for obstruction of justice.

The Mueller report describes several acts that satisfy all of the elements for an obstruction charge: conduct that obstructed or attempted to obstruct the truth-finding process, as to which the evidence of corrupt intent and connection to pending proceedings is overwhelming.

If you or anyone else had done what trump has done, that person would be indicted for obstruction.

Here's their statement.
