Donald Trump confirms he's under investigation

Donald Trump is furious that he is being investigated for sacking FBI chief James Comey Donald Trump is furious that he is being investigated for sacking FBI chief James Comey

In an interview with NBC's Lester Holt on May 11, Trump said he was "going to fire [Comey] regardless of recommendation" from Rosenstein and Sessions.

But Rosenstein could end up recusing himself, too, Justice officials say, in part because he played a role in President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.

The Post story also says that "accounts by Comey and other officials of their conversations with the president could become central pieces of evidence if Mueller decides to pursue an obstruction case" and that investigators will examine Trump's public and private statements "about his reasons for firing Comey" in the context of his "concerns about the Russian Federation probe".

In a hearing Wednesday, senators will focus on Russia's cyber efforts against US election systems in 2016, potential threats in upcoming elections and whether the U.S.is prepared to defend against those threats. They hint that Trump could still try to remove Mueller, a possibility that must be taken more seriously now that Trump is a target.

Trump cleared out the rumours about being under investigation after Rosenstein released a statement Thursday evening denying that the president is under investigation.

Trump may be referring to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who in a memo to Trump raised concerns over Comey's performance.

The transition official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss post-election decisions publicly.


In its lawsuit, attorneys for CNN said the FBI did not respond to a Freedom of Information Act request for copies of those memos within the window of time required by federal law - which requires agencies to "notify a requester of the scope of the documents that the agency will produce" within 20 working days of receiving the request. Though some in the White House have preached caution, fearing a repeat of the firestorm over Comey's firing, many in Trump's orbit - including his son Donald Trump Jr. and adviser Newt Gingrich - have deemed Mueller biased and worthy of dismissal.

Trump's tweets come after the top lawyer for his transition team warned the organization's officials to preserve all records and other materials related to the Russian Federation probe. I think the president should get on the work that is so important that he do and at this point let this investigation run its course. Starr's report on Clinton's conduct, which detailed his affairs with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky, led to the president being impeached in the House of Representatives.

If Rosenstein recuses himself, Brand, a Trump appointee, would become the top Justice official overseeing Mueller's work.

The Russia issue has cast a shadow over Trump's five months in office.

The Washington Post first reported Wednesday that Mueller's probe was widening to include looking into whether Trump obstructed justice.

Trump's decision to go after Rosenstein sparked widespread speculation in Washington that he may dismiss the deputy attorney general in yet another attempt to get past the Russian Federation investigation, although the likely effect of such a step would be to ignite a new political firestorm and claims that the President is abusing his power and mounting a coverup.

Comey said he typed notes describing the conversations because he was anxious Trump "might lie" later about them.
