Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara asserted on CNN's "State of the Union" that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is likely investigating Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.

"I think everything you see from our armchair seats suggests that Robert Mueller is going to chase down everything that might suggest a crime has been committed by any associated, colleague, relative of the president. And also the president himself."

"I think clearly one of the things he's going to be looking at is obstruction. I think any prosecutor or investigator who sees the evidence that has come forward, including the firing of Jim Comey, including the conversations about how much the president did not like the Russia investigation."

"All of that together paints a picture of potential obstruction. And Bob Mueller is a thorough and serious person, and fearless, and I think he's got to go there."
