We're going to get to the truth, and we're going to demonstrate that this president must be accountable for his own conduct."

He directed an outside person, Cory Lewandowski, to direct the attorney general to limit the special counsel's investigation. And a number of other instances of obstruction of justice that are detailed in this report. These are specific things the president did.
