Trump says no proof on 'collusion' with Russians

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 07:02

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein criticized the use of anonymous sources in news stories - casting doubt on recent reports about special counsel Robert Mueller's expanding probe into the Trump campaign and Russia, Politico reported.

ABC said Rosenstein told Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand that she would have to assume those responsibilities if he disqualified himself from the investigation.

Within the last few hours, Trump has confirmed that he is indeed under investigation for obstruction of justice.

The two hour-long testimony saw Comey further informing that Trump had directed him to drop an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe against former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

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

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the investigators were looking into possible obstruction of justice.

Mr Comey, who had been leading one of several Russian Federation inquiries, testified to Congress last week that the president had pressured him to drop the inquiry into Mr Flynn.

Former Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey told Congress last week he believed Trump fired him in May to undermine the agency's Russian Federation investigation.

Mueller's investigation is still in a relatively early phase, and it is unclear if any criminal charges will be brought when it is complete, the Post pointed out.


Trump denied Comey's allegations and said he would be willing to go under oath to give his version of their interactions. Trump relies heavily in social media outlets, twitter in particular, to communicate directly with his followers across the country. Nice", he wrote. "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!

USA 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.

Separately, the House committee said former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson would appear at a 21 June public hearing on the Russian Federation probe.

USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow interfered in the 2016 presidential campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favour.

The Twitter attacks came as Vice President Mike Pence hired a personal lawyer to represent him in the intensifying investigation.

A spokesman for Mueller's team declined to comment.

Mr Trump previously claimed he was the victim of a "witch hunt" in May after Mr Mueller, a former FBI director, was appointed to lead an investigation into his campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation.
