Trump blasts special counsel probe as "Witch Hunt"

Acilia Dean | 19 Giugno, 2017, 07:02

The New York Times sued the FBI on Friday, seeking a court's help in getting the agency to turn over documents created by fired FBI Director James Comey after his conversations with President Donald Trump.

Earlier this month, Rosenstein told The Associated Press he would recuse himself from overseeing Mueller's investigation if his role in former FBI Director James Comey's firing becomes relevant to the inquiry.

Trump blasted Mueller on Twitter on Thursday, saying the Russian Federation probe was being "led by some very bad and conflicted people", apparently referring to the special counsel.

"After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my "collusion with the Russians, nobody has been able to show any proof".

Mr Trump, who is due to give a speech in Miami on Friday where he is expected to announce a shift in USA policy towards Cuba, also boasted about his deployment of social media, despite warnings by legal experts that his tweets may be used against him in the ongoing investigation.

First off, Trump is not just being investigated for "firing the FBI Director".

He had likened the appointment of the special counsel with the "single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history".


In a sign of the newfound seriousness of Mueller's investigation, Vice President Mike Pence's office confirmed that he has hired an attorney to deal with the special counsel investigation.

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.

The scope of Mueller's probe seems vast, given that reports have pointed to his attempts to obtain information on members of the Trump campaign's transition team, golden boy/sketchy real estate mogul Jared Kushner, and former campaign chair/Ukraine shill Paul Manafort.

Mr Trump later hailed his own social media following, saying he can deliver his message directly to voters instead of going through the "fake news media".

Rosenstein submitted a widely circulated memo to the president last month raising concerns over Comey's performance that Trump cited in his letter dismissing Comey.

Mr Pence's office confirmed he had retained Richard Cullen, a former Virginia attorney general and United States attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to assist "in responding to inquiries" from Mr Mueller.

He reiterated tweets from Thursday morning about the investigation.
