The following is from Michael Anthony Peroutka from The Institute on the Constitution:
For two years we heard the drum beat of "Collusion, Collusion!" Now we keep hearing the phrase, "Obstruction of Justice!" I'm curious about this phrase and I think
it deserves some examination. Obstruction of justice is what they call a process crime. It falls under the same category as Contempt of Court and Perjury. These acts are prosecuted because they are considered to harm the public interest in the functioning and the integrity of the judicial system. But this presumes that the judicial system is functioning in the public interest and is functioning with integrity.
What if government agents or even whole agencies are themselves acting in a corrupt manner, designed to serve a private or corrupt purpose? If investigators or prosecutors misuse their authority and under the color of law, use the law to break the law;
isn't it the duty of citizens to resist, that is to say, obstruct such wrongdoing? And isn't it especially the duty of elected officials, like the President, to resist and oppose?
When investigators, investigating agencies and prosecutors are misusing their power and authority to further an injustice, I am hoping and praying that our elected officials
will resist, interfere, and obstruct with vigor. In the Old Testament book of Michael, the Lord commands all men "to do justly." So obstructing an injustice is not a crime, in
fact, it's a duty.
