Trump reacts on Twitter after special counsel reportedly starts investigating him

After the heat turned up on President Trump following a report that he was being investigated for obstruction of justice, Sean Hannity called for the ouster of special counsel Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who hired Mueller.The Washington Post, citing unidentified officials, reported on Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating the Republican president for possible obstruction of justice.Donald Trump calls the Washington Post report that he was under investigation the single greatest witch hunt is USA history.Comey prepared multiple contemporaneous memos documenting conversations with Trump that made him uneasy in the weeks before his May 9 firing.It was not clear who Trump was referring to in the tweet, but former FBI director Robert Mueller is leading the Russian Federation investigation after being appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in May.The new allegations against Trump center on his own admission that he fired Comey because of the Russian Federation investigation, and suggestions he asked several top intelligence officials for their help altering the direction of the inquiry. “It’s happening to discredit and to completely distract Donald Trump from being president of the United States”, Huckabee said.Obstruction of justice is a potentially impeachable offense.It will be up to Mueller to decide whether Trump crossed the legal line and whether to pursue an obstruction case against him.Several top intelligence officials have agreed to be interviewed by Mueller’s team, according to reports in both The Washington Post and New York Times.The obstruction of justice investigation into Trump began days after Comey was sacked on May 9, according to people familiar with the matter, the Washington Post said.Coons in the television appearance argued that it will be hard for Trump to “change the subject” from the FBI’s Russian Federation investigation because special counsel Robert Mueller has bipartisan support. However, the FBI cleared Clinton and recommended no charges in July 2016, and reiterated its position in November after the bureau discovered a new trove of her emails shortly before the presidential election.”The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal“, Corallo told CNN. A spokesman for Mr Mueller’s team declined to comment.Several US congressional committees are also looking into the question of Russian election interference and possible Trump campaign collusion.”The vice president has retained Richard Cullen of McGuire Woods to assist him in responding to inquiries by the special counsel”, Pence communications director Jared Agen said in a statement.
