Trump Acknowledges He Is Under Investigation in Russia Inquiry


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

"Nice", Trump tweeted, a day after The Washington Post followed by several other media outlets reported that a special counsel appointed to probe alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential polls is investigating him for possible obstruction of justice. Trump's tweet could be targeting Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the probe into Russia's intervention into the last year's presidential polls.

It's a shift in the FBI investigation, which previously focused on Russian hacking during the election, possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, and possible financial crimes by Trump associates. Trump wrote on Twitter, in a pair of messages that ended with a reference to his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again".

The Post reported that the obstruction of justice investigation of the president began days after James Comey was sacked as the FBI Director on May 9.

Comey was later sacked, with Trump acknowledging that the Russian investigation was on his mind when he made a decision to dismiss him.

"We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because above all they love our country", Trump said at the White House.

Recent reports have said Trump also requested help from Coats and Rogers to pressure Comey to end the investigation into Flynn's activities. Russian Federation has denied interfering in last year's presidential elections, as has the White House.

Vice President Mike Pence has also hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe. A Trump's transition official confirmed the lawyer's internal order, which was sent on Thursday.


The president, for his part, has denied any collusion between members of his campaign and Russian agents looking to interfere with the election. "Sad!" the USA president tweeted.

He said he believed Trump had directed him to drop a related agency investigation into the president's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. Gingrich told The Associated Press in an interview this week that his feelings about him began to change after Comey testified to a Senate panel that he had leaked his personal memos in order to trigger the appointment of a special counsel.

"I think what we need to do is get all the facts out there", Blunt said.
