Unnamed Sources: Trump Now Being Investigated for Obstruction

Donald Trump is being personally investigated by Robert Mueller according to reports Donald Trump is being personally investigated by Robert Mueller according to reports

Responding to the Post's report, the spokesman for Trump's lawyer said the "FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", news agency CNBC Now tweeted.

As part of the probe, Mueller is interviewing senior intelligence officials and looking for proof of any financial crimes possibly committed by Trump's associates, The Post reported, citing U.S. officials. Comey had been leading the FBI investigation into Trump's campaign team, and whether it colluded with the Kremlin during the 2016 election, when he was dismissed on May 9.

The Washington Post first reported Wednesday that Mueller's probe was widening to include looking into whether Trump obstructed justice.

Rumors about whether Trump committed obstruction of justice have been circulating after Comey accused the president last Thursday of firing him to undermine the FBI's investigation into possible collusion with Russian Federation.

Officials said one of the exchanges of potential interest to Mueller took place on March 22, less than a week after Coats was confirmed by the Senate to serve as the nation's top intelligence official.

Comey, in his Congress testimony, expressed is belief that he was sacked because of his bureau's Russian Federation investigation.

Reports that Trump was considering firing Mueller surfaced last week, again citing unnamed sources.

The three have agreed to appear voluntarily and the Post also reports that Daniel Coats once told his associates that President Trump had asked him to lean on the Federal Bureau of Investigation and get the agency to back off Michael Flynn.

Comey, however, would not say whether he thought the president sought to obstruct justice.

On Friday, Trump attempted to push back. I wonder if Comey sent him a card.

"We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because above all they love our country", Trump said at the White House. The office of the director of national intelligence and Ledgett declined to comment. Principal Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders referred Roll Call to an outside counsel.

The apparent obstruction probe immediately conjures memories of the Watergate scandal. The Post report came days after a Trump confidant, Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy, told PBS the president is "considering" firing Mueller.

Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that he was certain his firing was due to the president's concerns about the Russian Federation probe, rather than over his handling of a now-closed FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state, as the White House had initially asserted.

Mueller was hired by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on May 17, just eight days after Trump fired Comey.
