Trump cries witch hunt amid Russian Federation probe

Donald trump Trump cries witch hunt amid Russian Federation probe

The tweets came the morning after the Washington Post reported that special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into whether Trump obstructed justice by trying to interfere with the FBI's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 US election. Trump said, in an early morning tweet.

Donald Trump calls the Washington Post report that he was under investigation the single greatest witch hunt is U.S. history. Tom Cotton of Arkansas seemed especially obsessed with the idea that James Comey had told Trump that when it came to the allegations of the Trump campaign's contacts with Russian Federation, the president was not a subject of investigation. Those officials are: Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence; Michael Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency; and Richard Ledgett, the former NSA deputy director.

On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that the investigation has reached a turning point and will no longer just focus on possible collusion between Trump campaign aides and the Kremlin, but it will also investigate any possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said.

A few days later, sources with knowledge of the closed-door special counsel investigation leaked to The Post that Trump himself is under investigation.

Had he stuck with the administration line that he fired Comey both because of his poor management of the FBI and his handling of the Clinton e-mail investigation, it's unlikely there would be any grounds for hiring a special counsel.

Wall Street is settling in for a slow burn Russian Federation probe in Washington, D.C. - special investigations take on average more than two years.

But as the legal rope has tightened, Trump's allies have gone on the offensive, questioning the credibility of the special investigator Mueller, a respected former Federal Bureau of Investigation director who served under Republican president George W. Bush.

The news comes one day after Rosenstein affirmed his support for the special counsel, despite recent reports that Trump was weighing Mueller's dismissal.


Sessions, in response to Comey's testimony, sat down before the intelligence committee Tuesday, and while he largely deflected senators' questions about his conversations with the president over Comey's firing, he said the suggestion that he had colluded with Russian Federation at all was a "detestable lie". The request specifically asked for "copies of all records of notes taken by or communications sent from FBI Director James Comey" regarding those interactions.

"It's not a witch hunt", Thune told MSNBC in an interview on Thursday. He declined further comment.

Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson will testify in open session before the House intelligence committee as part of its investigation into Russian interference in last year's election campaign. On Tuesday, when Jeff Sessions appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Warner pressed the attorney general repeatedly about whether Trump officials had considered pardoning investigation targets.

Mr Trump denied those allegations, saying he would be more than willing to offer his own testimony under oath.

Mr Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee on 8 June he believed Mr Trump had directed him in February to drop an FBI probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn that was part of the broader Russian Federation investigation.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", the president told Comey, according to the memo.

"To put it another way, with the obstruction of justice issue now reportedly in the special counsel's scope, the optics of firing Mr. Mueller would likely prove politically perilous for President Trump as there has been broad support for the special counsel (63% of voters support)".
