Seen a lot of people saying “trump wasn’t found guilty of collusion therefore he cannot have committed obstruction of justice” and I just wanna put it out there that this statement is 100% false

Obstruction of justice is not determined by the guilt of an underlying crime. Obstruction of justice is determined by whether or not a person obstructed a legal investigation or the judicial process.

If person A is under investigation for a theft they did not commit and the court finds that they paid person B to testify on their behalf, both person A and person B have obstructed justice because they have interfered with the judicial process of determining guilt.
