Trump Officially Under Investigation

The president expressed annoyance about news reports that the probe is now believed to include an examination of whether he obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey, who had earlier led the Russian Federation investigation.The Washington Post reported late on Wednesday that President Donald Trump is now under investigation in the Senate probe on Russian meddling in the US election.Mueller has requested interviews with three current or former senior intelligence officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday.President Donald Trump slammed special counsel Robert Mueller’s expanding probe on Thursday, calling the inquiry into whether he obstructed justice a “phony story” and “the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history”.”The FBI’s leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal, ” said Mark Corallo, spokesman for Trump’s outside legal team.Collins’ question was prompted by recent media reports that Mueller’s role leading the DOJ’s Russian Federation investigation could be in jeopardy.Mueller met Wednesday with the leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee in an effort to ensure their investigations don’t conflict.They say Mr Trump did not collude with Russian Federation and see the investigation as a politically-motivated sham that handicaps his ability to execute his agenda, according to one person who advises the White House on how to handle the probe.”I think he’s considering perhaps terminating the special counsel”, Christopher Ruddy said during an appearance on PBS’ “NewsHour”.Doubt, however, has been cast on that explanation because of cryptic testimony from former FBI Director James Comey last week.An hour after the “nice” tweet, Trump continued to reiterate his stance that the investigation was a farce, tweeting again that it was a “witch hunt”.Kushner has agreed to talk to the Senate Intelligence committee, and is expected to discuss these matters with the Senate intelligence staff, though the timing is still being worked out. Such a move would create a firestorm coming weeks after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.Investigators are said to be looking into possible financial crimes among Trump associates as well, including money laundering, reports the New York Times.Ms sanders also said says the president was pleased with attorney general Jeff Sessions’ evidence to Congress on Tuesday.President Donald Trump speaks on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Monday, June 12, 2017, during a ceremony honoring the 2016 NCAA Football National Champions Clemson University Tigers.
