Trump lashes out over probe

On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that Mueller was investigating if Trump obstructed justice when he fired Comey.

Donald Trump took to Twitter Friday to insist that despite months of investigating, no proof has emerged that he colluded with Russian Federation to tilt the 2016 presidential election in his favor. An hour later he claimed: "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

"Coons's comment came hours after Trump called the investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible ties between his campaign staff and Russian Federation the "single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history".

Shortly after Trump fired Comey, a Justice Department official tapped Mueller to take up the investigation as a special counsel.

In his latest tweet, the president seemed to confirm he is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice.

And Trump's apparent reference to Rosenstein, who oversees the Russian Federation investigation because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from it, came just hours after a statement from Rosenstein complaining about leaks in the case.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", a spokesman for Mr Trump's legal team, Mr Mark Corallo, said.

Mr Trump lashed out on Twitter early yesterday. Comey did not name the dissenter, but The Washington Post has learned it was FBI General Counsel James Baker.

A few hours later, Trump again tweeted, this time attempting to divert attention toward his former rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, first saying: "Why is that Hillary Clinton's family and Democrats dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"

The Japanese star matched Chez Reavie for the best round of the day, three shots clear of the next best performance by Bill Haas. Clearly the game plan is pretty good", he said about his run of birdies that began at 17 and raged on through the turn.

Mueller's investigation appeared to be reaching a broadening circle of current and former officials.

NBC is reaching out to the White House.

The White House has denied any collusion, and Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, sent out spokespeople and surrogates with a far-fetched cover story to explain the dismissal, and then told NBC's Lester Holt that the real reason for the firing was Comey's pursuit of the Russian Federation investigation.

It's unclear why the Federal Bureau of Investigation hasn't handed over the documents.

Mueller's probe has now reportedly zeroed in on whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice when he fired Comey, according to The Washington Post.

The report comes a day after Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a close aide of Trump, vehemently denied any role in Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 United States polls and dismissed accusations that he discussed such an effort with Russian officials as an "appalling and detestable lie".

Rosenstein now has such authority because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself on March 2 after revelations of previously undisclosed meetings with Russia's ambassador to Washington while he was a Trump campaign advisor.

Finally, we know that Mueller's investigators are also looking for "any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates", as the Post phrased it.
