President Trump Confirms He's Being Investigated For Possible Obstruction Of Justice

He wrote: "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

The Justice Department's investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election is looking at Kushner's multiple roles in the Trump administration, including the Trump campaign's 2016 data analytics operation; his relationship with former national security adviser Michael Flynn; and Kushner's own contacts with Russians, according to USA officials briefed on the probe.

A source familiar with the Mueller investigation, who confirmed the Washington Post report, told Reuters an examination of possible obstruction of justice charges was "unavoidable" given testimony by former FBI director James Comey.

The source added that Mueller also wants to talk to Richard Ledgett, the former top civilian an the NSA, who wrote a memo documenting Rogers' conversation with Trump.

Trump's digital volley appeared to be trained at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who recommended the firing last month of James Comey - an nearly unprecedented move that could yet imperil Trump's presidency.

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein submitted a widely circulated memo to the president last month raising concerns over Mr Comey's performance, but Mr Trump later said he had already made the decision to fire Mr Comey.

The news comes as the Justice Department continues its investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and the Trump administration's potential ties to Russia.

As The Post's Philip Bump explains, Trump can end this "witch hunt" one of three ways. All week, some of Trump's most ardent defenders, including his son Donald Trump Jr., his White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and friend and occasional adviser Newt Gingrich have questioned the probe in similar ways.


Senior Justice Department officials pushed back on the ABC News report, saying Rosenstein has not at this point requested any official opinion on the matter from career ethics attorneys in the department.

On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Comey had presented no evidence to prove that Moscow meddled in the United States election, adding that Washington had tried to influence Russian elections "year after year", he said.

Adam Schiff says it's clear that Trump "believes that he has the power to fire anyone in government he chooses and for any reason". Trump fired Comey in May.

Comey testified that he believed his dismissal was an attempt to exert influence on the investigation into alleged Russian interference and possible collusion.

Trump took to his Twitter account Thursday morning to denounce the report.

The leaders of the Senate Intelligence committee said in a statement issued Wednesday that they "look forward to future engagements" with Robert Mueller. The Post report did not name the Federal Bureau of Investigation as its source.

A spokesman for Mueller's team declined to comment on Wednesday.
