Most Americans think Trump tried to interfere with Russian Federation investigation

A majority of Americans are concerned that President Donald Trump tried to interfere with the investigation into possible collusion between his 2016 campaign and Russia's interference in the election.

Trump's decision to go after Rosenstein sparked widespread speculation in Washington that he may dismiss the deputy attorney general in yet another attempt to get past the Russian Federation investigation, although the likely effect of such a step would be to ignite a new political firestorm and claims that the President is abusing his power and mounting a coverup.

Marc Kasowitz, Trump's personal lawyer, said Comey's testimony vindicated that Trump wasn't under investigation by the FBI.

According to the White House, Trump had met on May 8 with Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who told their boss during the meeting they had concerns about Comey.

Mr. Rosenstein took over the investigation into whether Russian Federation tried to tip the U.S election in favour of Mr. Trump after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself in March.

News that Mueller is now investigating Trump for obstruction of justice comes amid reports that Trump has discussed whether to remove the special counsel.

Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes by Trump associates, the daily said, quoting unnamed United States officials.

Hannity said the media are backing off the Russian Federation collusion narrative because it failed to gain any traction due to lack of evidence.

He tweeted, "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my "collusion with the Russians", nobody has been able to show any proof. Officials say that changed shortly after Comey's firing".

Yet Trump's angry tweets on Friday underscored the near-impossible challenge his advisers and legal team have in trying to get him to avoid weighing in on an active probe.

Now, they are talking about whether Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice in his dealings with Comey, with more fuel added to that fire with a Washington Post report - yet another leaked story based on sources - that Mueller was in fact investigating Trump for obstruction.

US President Donald Trump has confirmed he's being investigated for his role in firing Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, calling the probe a "witch hunt".

His comments follow revelations that special counsel Robert Mueller is examining whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey.

A Justice Department official - who declined to speak on the record - told CNN that the White House didn't order Rosenstein's statement.

The president also appeared to undermine Mueller's leadership, saying the "witch hunt" was being "led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

A Washington Post report that special counsel Robert Mueller is looking at Jared Kushner's finances cited anonymous sources, but described them as USA officials.

The Post reported that Mueller and his team are interviewing senior intelligence officials about Trump's role, including Dan Coats, director of national intelligence; Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency; and Richard Ledgett, who recently left his role as Rogers' deputy.

Comey told Congress last week that before being sacked, Trump pressured him to drop an investigation into his former national security advisor, Mike Flynn, who was forced to quit for lying about his links to Moscow.

California Rep. Adam Schiff says it's clear that Trump "believes that he has the power to fire anyone in government he chooses and for any reason".

Both men refused the president's request, the Post said. "I can go around them". And frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said.
