Trump Appears to Confirm He Is Under Investigation

Trump Appears to Confirm He Is Under Investigation Trump Appears to Confirm He Is Under Investigation

When The Washington Post reported this week that Mueller was investigating Trump for obstruction of justice, a spokesman for the President's private attorney called the leak "outrageous, inexcusable and illegal".

Trump appeared to be a responding to a Washington Post report that special prosecutor Robert Mueller "is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said".

The new allegations against Trump center on his own admission that he fired Comey because of the Russian Federation investigation, and suggestions he asked several top intelligence officials for their help altering the inquiry's direction. "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!", Trump tweeted.

Mr Comey confirmed in his testimony to the Senate intelligence committee last week that Mr Trump was not personally under investigation for contacts with Russian Federation, despite an ongoing probe into links between his campaign team and the Kremlin.

"If he fires Mueller, I will tell you, we are right on the brink of a constitutional crisis", the IL senator said. The Post spoke with five people briefed on the inquiries, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the probe publicly.

The Trump administration initially said Mr Rosenstein's letter was the reason the President fired Mr Comey on May 9, but Mr Trump later said he did so because of the "Russia thing".


It was the earlier tweet, however, that had the internet questioning Trump after he concluded his tweet with a word lifted straight from web lexicon. "We're not and the only person responsible for that is the president with these very controversial tweets today", he said.

The meeting comes a day after lawmakers questioned Justice Department officials about the probe and Mueller's independence, and after a friend of Trump said the White House was considering firing Mueller.

It was not clear if Trump's tweet was based on news reports or if the White House had been given official notice.

Mueller's office has reached out to Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers and recently retired deputy NSA director Richard Ledgett. Grassley's office said the letter is in response to a recent letter from Feinstein requesting that the committee seek details from senior Federal Bureau of Investigation leadership about Comey's interactions with Trump before he was sacked.

If President Trump and his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation, he and his administration should be welcoming the investigation to put any false accusations to rest.
