Trump tweets of witch hunt amid Russian Federation probe, bashes Hillary Clinton

Tensions are building inside the Justice Department as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein contemplates whether he will become a witness in the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 United States elections. "Witch Hunt", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Rosenstein became the Justice Department official overseeing the investigations into the Russian Federation election meddling and Trump after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from any matters arising from the 2016 presidential campaigns because he served as a prominent Trump campaign adviser.

President Donald Trump continued a campaign on Twitter on Friday against the investigations into possible links between his campaign and Russian Federation. 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".

President Donald Trump says it's "sad" that seven months of investigations and hearings into possible links between his campaign and Russian Federation have been fruitless.

Mr Trump is unlikely to face criminal prosecution as a sitting president, but obstruction of justice could be grounds for impeachment. Any such step would face a steep hurdle as it would require approval by the US House of Representatives, which is controlled by Trump's fellow Republicans. The newspaper noted Mueller had requested interviews with CIA Director Dan Coats, National Security Agency chief Michael Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the former NSA deputy director. 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. Mueller has not made any public comments about Comey amid the firestorm.

Trump did not respond to shouted questions from the media as he was leaving the White House lawns to board Marine One for the Joint Andres Air Force Base for his day-long trip to Florida.


Moscow has denied any interference. Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win.

The Post reported that the obstruction of justice investigation of the president began days after James Comey was sacked as the FBI Director on May 9.

The administration initially gave differing reasons for his dismissal, including that he had lost the confidence of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The intelligence committee is the lead congressional panel on the Russian Federation hacking scandal, including highly publicized hearings with fired FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Mueller is investigating Russian interference in USA elections and possible Russian ties to the Trump campaign.

The Post reported that FBI agents and federal prosecutors are also looking into the financial dealings of Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and former campaign policy adviser Carter Page.
