“It’s shocking that the FBI would open up an obstruction case for the President exercising his authority under Article II,” said the President’s attorney Rudy Giuliani.

No, Rudy, as one lawyer to another, what’s shocking here is you think you can dupe the public with this line by attempting to cloak Trump’s actions with a veneer of legality by making reference to the Constitution.
Article II speaks to the existence of Trump’s power to fire Comey. The existence of that power does not negate limitations on the purpose for which that power may be used. In this case, as seems clear, it was used for the purpose of obstruction of justice.
A man intentionally driving a car into a crowd of people is certainly “exercising his authority” to drive. He is also undoubtedly committing a crime.
Please don’t believe a word this man says.
