There is a constitutional problem with claiming that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice. The FBI is an executive agency; from a constitutional standpoint it can be argued to be wielding the power of the executive. As the head of the executive branch, Trump was fully within his legal authority to ORDER Comey to end the investigation.

Trump exercising his constitutional authority CANNOT be obstruction of justice.

If you disagree with the firing, then you can lobby congress to impeach him. There is no legal question here, only a political one.
