Dianne Feinstein 'Increasingly Concerned' Donald Trump Will Try to Fire Investigators

Donald Trump confirms obstruction of justice probe claiming ‘witch hunt

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions declined to reveal what he and Trump have discussed about the Russian Federation probe or the decision to fire Comey.

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.

While Rosenstein has some supervisory responsibilities for the FBI's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and whether any Trump aides conspired with that campaign, the probe is being led by Mueller, the special counsel Rosenstein appointed in the wake of Comey's firing.

In another tweet Friday morning, Trump said it's "sad" that seven months of investigations and hearings into possible links between his campaign and Russian Federation have been fruitless.

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

Mueller, himself a widely respected former head of the FBI, has now taken up the angle of possible efforts by Trump to obstruct justice in the investigation, the Post said.

Mr Trump, who is due to give a speech in Miami on Friday where he is expected to announce a shift in United States 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.

Some Republicans have called for Mueller's firing, citing alleged conflicts of interest.

California Senator Dianne Feinstein has raised concerns that President Donald Trump will try to dismiss Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller, two officials involved in an ongoing probe into potential ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

President Donald Trump admitted to being under investigation Friday, in a perplexing tweet that assigned blame for the investigation to "the man who told me to fire the FBI Director".

In an attempt to sound upbeat and to downplay the new developments in a controversy that has now reached the Oval Office, Trump also said that "despite the phony witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great".

Legal experts warned that Comey's testimony may provide enough evidence for an obstruction of justice case against Trump, which could be used as the basis for impeachment proceedings.

The order by the general counsel for his transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government.

Friday's tweet marked the first time Mr Trump has publicly acknowledged he is under investigation.
