Trump Finally Confirms He's Under Investigation on Twitter, of Course

Donald Trump H.R. McMaster Trump Finally Confirms He's Under Investigation on Twitter, of Course

Special counsel Robert Mueller, appointed to investigate Russia's interference in the election, is investigating whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice throughout the course of the almost year-long investigation, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

On Thursday, it was reported that President Trump himself was under investigation for possible obstruction of justice.

A day earlier, Trump had questioned why his general election rival Hillary Clinton was not being investigated.

It is not clear, however, if Trump was referring in Friday's tweet to Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions recommending that the president fire Comey.

Johnson also said he was not happy that he learned well after the fact that the DNC's computer systems had been hacked. He said the administration had told the American public everything "we were in a position to tell them" on October 7.

Aside for Mueller, Feinstein also noted how Trump previously received a memo from Rosenstein, containing the Deputy Attorney General's recommendation ahead of the Comey firing.

Last month, Rosenstein sent a memo to Trump raising concerns over FBI Director James Comey - concerns the White House then cited as a central reason for Comey's firing.

While Mr Rosenstein appointed Mr Mueller as a special counsel to oversee the investigation, it is possible that he could be called as a witness as part of the investigation.

Trump said in an interview with NBC News that he would have fired Comey even without Rosenstein's memo. However, Trump later asserted that he had already made the decision himself to fire Comey. Trump confirmed in a tweet Friday he was under investigation and appeared to take aim at Rosenstein, calling the investigation a "witch hunt".

Comey has also said Trump asked him to drop an investigation into ties between Michael Flynn, who advised Trump during the campaign and briefly served as national security adviser after Trump's inauguration, and Russian officials.

The tweet represented a remarkable show of frustration by a serving President, who is making no secret of his emotions as an investigation that started out as an effort to understand Russian meddling in the election appears to be moving ever closer towards his inner circle and narrowing in on his own conduct.

The top lawyer for the Trump transition team has ordered the organization's staff to preserve all records and other materials related to the widening investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into contacts between the Trump campaign and Russian representatives. "Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations".

"If he fires Mueller, I will tell you, we are right on the brink of a constitutional crisis", the IL senator said. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations". I agree with the almost unanimous opinions of former Department officials, the way the Director handled the conclusion of the email investigation was wrong.

Helmut Kohl, German reunifier, dies
In a 2012 tribute , former USA president Bill Clinton described Mr Kohl as one of post-war Europe's defining statesmen. And about the German situation they said: "if Helmut Kohl doesn't push it through, nobody else will", Kohl said.

His time under Bush, Obama and then Trump made him the longest-serving US attorney in the nation's history when he was confirmed to his current role under Sessions.
