Donald Trump faces investigation for possible obstruction of justice

Parmenio Sano | 17 Giugno, 2017, 04:30

"Nice", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Citing multiple unnamed officials, the Post reported that the investigation into Trump began within days of Comey's termination.

Investigators have also been looking into potential financial crimes committed by Trump's associates, the Post reported. "The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", he said. "Why in the world would we allow, in the United States of America, for information like this to be released?"

'And in fact when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said, "You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won,"' Trump said at the time.

In a series of early morning tweets on Thursday, Mr Trump wrote: "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

Sean Hannity opined on Wednesday evening that Mueller "needs to go".

The New York Times also reported that Mueller was seeking interviews with the three officials.

The NSA said in statement that it will "fully cooperate with the special counsel", and declined to comment further. "It's mandatory language... He must recuse". The former top cop also told the Senate Intelligence Committee that his termination seemed tied to his refusal to lift what Trump called a "cloud" hanging over his presidency, referring to the broader FBI Russia meddling probe.

"You can not have the prosecutor that close to the and perhaps only witness", Jarrett added. The memo asks for preservation of electronic communications and data, telephone logs, audio recordings, videos, calendars and other items.

"This is not the way the justice system is supposed to work", Trump's attorney added.

The Huffington Post noted in March there were similar comments during last year's campaign from prominent members of Team Trump, including Sean Spicer, Kellyanne Conway, and Reince Priebus.

While a sitting president is unlikely to face criminal prosecution, obstruction of justice could form the basis for impeachment.

The tweets didn't seem to be the end of the administration's defensive response to the latest reports on the Mueller investigation. "This is just - he is beginning these interviews, that's what we have learned".

A source familiar with the Mueller investigation confirmed the Post report, saying an examination of possible obstruction of justice charges was "unavoidable" given Comey's testimony, although the issue may not become the main focus of the probe.

No longer is he merely focused on Moscow's efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, meaning he also appears to be zeroing in on Trump's actions since taking office on January 20.

Trump's Twitter response followed days of intensifying criticism of Mueller from some conservatives who have charged the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director and his team with political bias and have claimed his relationship to Comey and an earlier meeting with Trump amount to conflicts of interest.
