Trump expresses more frustration over Russia investigation

Twitter users quickly responded to Presidents Donald Trump's series of Thursday tweets in which he asked why only his relationship with Russian Federation was under scrutiny and not Hillary Clinton's.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating Trump for obstruction of justice for firing FBI Director James Comey. ABC News has not independently confirmed the report. In fact, Trump referenced "Crooked H" in a tweet, of course, just yesterday.

Specifically, he wanted to know why he is being inspected for "my non-dealings" with Russian Federation but Clinton's family is not.

Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that the president pressured him to "let go" of the agency's investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's alleged Moscow ties in a private Oval Office meeting in February.

The president has also accused former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who presided over the Justice Department while it conducted the investigation into Clinton's private server use, of making "law enforcement decisions for political purposes".

Donald Trump, borrowing a page from Fox News, pushed a very specific line: "Never before", the Republican tweeted, "has a president endorsed someone under investigation" by the Justice Department.

The tweet comes as a surprise, as the account hasn't been active since a day before the 2016 election when Clinton lost to Trump.

Examining such possible charges will allow investigators to interview key administration figures, including Attorney-General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein and possibly Mr Trump himself, said the source familiar with Mr Mueller's investigation.

Trump criticized reports June 15 that he was now the subject of Mueller's investigation.
