Trump confirms probe over Comey firing

Donald trump Trump confirms probe over Comey firing
Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 03:38

The president launched his latest tweetstorm Friday morning, during which he once again blasted the mainstream media, described the probes of his administration as a "witch hunt" and seemingly confirmed that he is now under investigation.

"FBI director" James Comey in a tweet Friday morning, once again calling the investigation a "witch hunt". "Witch Hunt", the president wrote.

In this last tweet, Trump was referring to a memo written by Rosenstein that was intensely critical of Comey and implicitly recommended his removal.

Rosenstein took over the Russian Federation probe soon after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.

The Justice Department declined to comment on Friday. In that case, Rosenstein could be called as a witness. Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley says Rosenstein should recuse himself because of his interactions with Mr. Trump.

He did not mention any names but his message comes a day after he took to Twitter to slam a media report indicating that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating Trump himself for obstruction of justice related to the Russian Federation probe. Trump later said he had planned to fire Comey regardless of what recommendation he received from Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

Terming Comey's allegations untrue, Trump later said he was willing to testify under oath but Mueller's reported investigation into the president's actions means that Trump will have to live with the ghost of another probe reaching to the White House.

Speaking to Harris Faulkner, Wallace said Trump once again kept Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation at the top of the headlines.

A recent Washington Post report said Trump is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.


The Republican president has repeatedly complained about the probe, calling it a witch hunt and saying Democrats can not accept his election victory.

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

Mr. Mueller's investigation appeared to be reaching a circle of current and former officials.

The Washington Post was one of several media that revealed this week that Trump himself is being investigated on allegations of obstructing justice.

Mr Comey gave evidence last week that he also felt pressured to drop the Flynn probe.

After Comey's firing, Rosenstein appointed Mueller to lead an independent investigation on matters involving Russia's alleged meddling and related matters.

Sources informed The Post of the financial focus of the investigation.

"As a result, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes", he wrote. Trump, a Republican, later said that he had the Russian Federation matter in mind when he fired Comey.
