Trump publicly acknowledges Russia probe includes him

Trump publicly acknowledges Russia probe includes him

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

Comey, who was sacked on May 9, told a Senate panel last week he believed Trump dismissed him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation probe. But we do know the special counsel investigating the Russian attempt to influence the election has them.

Rosenstein in a memo to Trump raised concerns over FBI Director James Comey.

The New York Times sued the FBI on Friday, seeking a court's help in getting the agency to turn over documents created by fired FBI Director James Comey after his conversations with President Donald Trump.

He tweeted, "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my "collusion with the Russians", nobody has been able to show any proof".

Trump wrote, "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

A close Trump associate said this week the president was considering firing Mueller, although the White House later denied it.

Where is Rod Rosenstein's overdue statement responding to the President's repeated attacks on his appointment of Robert Mueller?

Trump named Christopher Wray, a former Justice Department official who recently served as personal attorney to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, as Federal Bureau of Investigation director earlier this month.

Trump criticized media reports that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating him for obstruction of justice as a part of a wider probe into alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and Trump's campaign, saying Americans are watching "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history". The newspaper noted Mueller had requested interviews with CIA Director Dan Coats, National Security Agency chief Michael Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the former NSA deputy director.

Trump, however, referred to the Post's reporting as a "phony" story in a tweet Thursday.

Earlier this month, Rosenstein told The Associated Press that "if anything that I did winds up being relevant to his investigation then, as Director Mueller and I discussed, if there's a need from me to recuse, I will".

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.
