President Trump Reveals He Is Being Investigated

Freda Brock | 19 June, 2017, 13:52

However, it is likely that he was tweeting about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, or Mueller who is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing ex-FBI Director James Comey last month amid the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.

Comey said it should be special counsel Robert Mueller's task to determine whether Trump had obstructed justice, and therefore, had opened himself up to possible impeachment proceedings, keeping the allegations on Russian Federation in mind. Feinstein took notice of this, and the Senate Intelligence Committee chairwoman expressed concern about what this announcement would mean for Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, and the probes about obstruction of justice and Russia's actions during the 2016 election.

In a second Tweet, Trump echoed previous claims that he is the victim of what he says is the "single greatest witch hunt in American political history".

In characteristic style Mr Trump himself struck back on Twitter.

Trump could be seething and obsessing even more in the coming days.

The Twitter attacks came as Vice President Mike Pence hired a personal lawyer to represent him in the intensifying investigation.

Burr said there's a reason for the committee's interest in interviewing these senior intelligence officials: To determine whether there was any collusion between Russian officials and Trump associates, a sign that obstruction was not part of his panel's purview.

The London Ambulance Service tweeted that it had sent "number of resources" to the site after being called in around 12.15 am. Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Twitter: "I'm totally shocked at the incident at Finsbury Park".

Former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey told Congress last week he believes he was sacked by Mr Trump to undermine the agency's Russian Federation probe.

Meanwhile, the top attorney for the Trump transition team has ordered the organization's staff to preserve all records related to Mueller's widening investigation.

The Washington Post this week reported, not only that the president is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice, but also that the FBI inquiry is examining the business and financial dealings of the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner.

A few hours later, Trump again tweeted, this time attempting to divert attention toward his former rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, first saying: "Why is that Hillary Clinton's family and Democrats dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"

The obstruction of justice investigation into Mr Trump began days after Mr Comey was sacked, according to people familiar with the matter, the Washington Post said.

Comey confirmed as much in a Senate hearing last week.

However, The Washington Post report on Wednesday said that changed shortly after Mr Comey's firing. Former FBI head Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel a day after a report stemming from the notes was published.
