Trump Acknowledges He's Being Investigated In Firing Of Comey

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 07:10

In a tweet Friday morning, President Donald Trump says he's being investigated for firing FBI Director James Comey.

However, it is likely that he was tweeting about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, or Mueller who is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing ex-FBI Director James Comey last month amid the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.

Trump and his White House have offered various explanations for Comey's abrupt ouster, including that he lost the confidence of the bureau's rank and file - a suggestion flatly dismissed by acting director Andrew McCabe.

The president's tweets came two years to the day after Trump first launched his improbable presidential bid by famously descending an escalator in Trump Tower in NY, and while his presidency is embroiled in crisis over the federal investigation led by Mueller into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russia's role in the 2016 elections is rapidly expanding the scope of his investigation, according to numerous reports in the press.

A new report that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is widening his Russian Federation investigation has prompted the Department of Justice to issue a new warning about government leaks.

Trump has described these reports as "fake news" and the investigations as a "witch hunt". Since then Mueller, who served as FBI director before Comey, has taken over the investigation. Who is Trump referring to?


On Thursday afternoon, Trump sent two tweets attacking his former opponent.

As special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the election intensifies, key players in the Trump administration are taking action.

Mr Flynn was forced out in February after he misled the vice-president about his conversations with Russia's ambassador before Mr Trump took office.

Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, Mike Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency, and Richard Ledgett, the former Deputy Director at the NSA, had agreed to be interviewed by Mueller's investigators as early as this week, the Washington Post said, citing anonymous sources.

Trump also criticized the change in focus of the investigation on Thursday, saying that it was run by "some very bad and conflicted people!".

Mr Trump is unlikely to face criminal prosecution as a sitting president, but obstruction of justice could be grounds for impeachment.

Trump accused the media of hypocrisy, pointing out that Hillary Clinton was never accused of trying to obstruct justice even though she had her staff smash her private email devices with a sledgehammer.
