President Trump appears to confirm he's under investigation with tweet

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:54

Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the top Justice Department official overseeing the special counsel's probe into alleged Russian meddling in last year's presidential election, has told officials that he might have to recuse himself from the investigation, according to a report from ABC News.

Trump had received private assurances from then-FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into President Donald Trump and his possible campaign ties to Russian Federation is growing rapidly, according to various media reports.

On Wednesday, anonymous sources told the Washington Post that special counsel Robert Mueller told Senate investigators in a confidential hearing that he was looking into Trump's firing of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Comey was sacked by the president on May 9 while he was overseeing the investigation into potential Russian interference into last year's election and potential collusion with the Trump presidential campaign.

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".


Comey had testified that during the meeting in which Trump allegedly asked him to drop the Flynn investigation, Sessions had left the room.

Comey used his his three-hour testimony before the Senate intelligence committee last week to launch a blistering takedown of Trump, calling him a liar no less than five times.

The probe is being led by special counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed by Rosenstein. And as Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) declared in a tweet Thursday, "If Trump fired Mueller (he'd also have to fire Dep AG Rosenstein), it would be an 11 on the Richter scale of #obstructionofjustice".

People zeroed into the words "I am being investigated" and wondered who he's talking about. "Sad!" the United States president tweeted. "I think it would be an absolute disaster if the president were to move forward and fire the special counsel", Sen.

Trump, however, added that the man conducting the probe is the same individual who advised him to fire Comey. The order also demands that records be kept on any foreign travel by members of Trump's transition team and presidential campaign. The Justice Department had no comment on Trump's tweet Friday.

Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence has now hired legal counsel to represent him in the Russian Federation probe and there are media reports that the investigation has expanded to include the business dealings of White House adviser and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner. "Sad!" Trump said in his first tweet of the day.
