President Trump confirms he is under investigation

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:04

President Trump said, quote, "I am being investigated for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director by the man who told me to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director - exclamation point - witch hunt".

At a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing last week, Coats and Rogers refused to say whether Trump asked them to intervene in the investigation, which is also examining whether the Trump campaign team colluded with Russian Federation during last year's presidential campaign.

Rosenstein had written to Trump recommending Comey's firing.

"I've talked with Director Mueller about this", Rosenstein told AP.

Senators were captivated by Comey's testimony, in which he indicated that political pressure had been put on him by both the Obama and Trump administration.

"The message the president is sending through his tweets is that he believes the rule of law doesn't apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired", Feinstein said. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is overseeing the Russian Federation probe - and Special Counsel Robert Mueller reports to him.

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

Trump has said he is "100 per cent" willing to testify under oath on Comey meetings and tell the FBI Special Consul Robert Muller that he never asked FBI to stop investigating.

Trump s young presidency has been battered by allegations - under investigation both by Congress and the FBI - that Russian Federation interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favor, in possible collusion with Trump s campaign team.


In addition, officials also said investigators have been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates. The order by the general counsel for his transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government.

Brand was sworn in as associate attorney general on May 22.

The president, while boarding Marine One on the White House South Lawn Friday morning en route to Miami ignored a reporter's question as to whether he still has faith in Rosenstein.

Yesterday, news broke that Mike Pence hired outside counsel to represent him on related inquiries as well.

President Donald Trump complained on social media about the wide-ranging investigation of Russian interference in the United States election as Robert Mueller appeared to widen his probe to include whether Trump tried to obstruct justice. In part, the memo read that former transition team members "have a duty to preserve any physical and electronic records that may be related in any way to the subject matter of the pending investigations". Trump tweeted. "I can go around them".

United States intelligence agencies concluded in a report issued in January that Russian Federation interfered in the presidential race to try to help Trump win, in part by hacking and releasing emails damaging to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump hadn't publicly admitted he was personally under investigation until now.

The Washington Post reported June 15 that Mueller was expanding his investigation to include potential obstruction of justice charges for Trump during his conversations with Comey.
