WaPo: Special Counsel Looking At Jared Kushner's Business Activities

"They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice", Trump wrote in his first tweet. All week, some of Trump's most ardent defenders, including his son Donald Trump Jr., his White House counselor Kellyanne Conway and friend and occasional adviser Newt Gingrich have questioned the probe in similar ways.

The tweets potentially could put the president into deeper legal peril.

It was not clear who Trump was referring to in the tweet, but former FBI director Robert Mueller is leading the Russian Federation investigation after being appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in May.

Special Counsel Mueller likely "will be archiving these various Twitter rants as supplemental evidence" for the obstruction investigation, Moss, who also is deputy executive director of the James Madison Project, told VOA. Trump said on Twitter, calling the probe into him a "Witch Hunt".

'And in fact when I chose to just do it, I said to myself, I said, "You know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won,"' Trump said at the time.

His wavy brown hair and light beard would make him fit right in on the North Shore of Oahu, although he's from Southport, England. This is only his eighth major, and the third time he'll be playing on the weekend. "Looking forward to the next two days".

The Washington Post reported this week that Mueller is investigating whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice when he suggested Comey drop an FBI investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, as well as when he fired Comey. It was not known whether Ledgett talked with Trump, but he wrote an internal NSA document recounting Trump's request to Rogers.

Those matters include whether President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether any crimes were committed. I felt, required it, ' Sessions said in testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee this week.

About a week later, Mueller, another former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, was appointed, over Trump's opposition, as special counsel to lead the criminal probe.

Earlier this week, the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller appeared to move closer to Trump.

Comey said he typed notes describing the conversations because he was anxious Trump "might lie" later about them.
