The question presented is Donald Trump guilty of obstruction of justice? Obstruction of justice is any willful interference with the orderly administration of justice.

Did Michael Cohen, a convicted felon act on his own or at the direction and for the benefit of Donald Trump? If so, we may have a criminal and civil Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) case.

The answers to these questions can be gleaned from my article: Civil RICO: A Tool of Advocacy, New York State Bar Association Journal/Nov/Dec 2016, pgs. 11-14 by clicking on ssrn link to published articles at:
