Trump confirms on Twitter that he is being investigated for firi

Show Caption

In his latest of four Friday morning tweets, all angry and combative, the President says he is being investigated, and appears to target Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

He had likened the appointment of the special counsel with the "single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history".

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election is interviewing three senior intelligence officials to determine whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

President Donald Trump made a surprising comment about the possible investigation into obstruction of justice for firing former FBI Director James Comey.

The Post referred to anonymous sources who had been briefed on requests made by Mueller's investigators.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Mark Carallo told the Washington Post".

Investigators were also looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates.

As a result, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes and pledges never to repeat them.

The White House also said it would work to keep lines of communication open with Russian Federation amid the new tensions. Associated Press writers Nasser Karimi in Tehran and Jon Gambrell in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, contributed.

The requests from Mueller also pointed towards a new scrutiny on whether the President tried to influence the Russian Federation investigation through conversations he had with Comey, whom he ultimately fired, or with other officials. "Nice", the president wrote on Twitter.

Comey, who had been overseeing the bureau's Russian Federation investigation, says he had previously assured Trump he was not personally under investigation.

The president's tweets came two years to the day after Trump first launched his improbable presidential bid by famously descending an escalator in Trump Tower in NY, and while his presidency is embroiled in crisis over the federal investigation led by Mueller into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation.

Comey said the notes contain his recollections that Trump asked for his loyalty when they met for a January dinner and then urged him during a private meeting in the Oval Office two weeks later to drop an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

"A lot of people have tried to make the case - including the president - that this means that the collusion investigation is being abandoned", Entous said.

A source familiar with the Mueller investigation confirmed the report, saying an examination of possible obstruction of justice charges was "unavoidable" given testimony by former FBI director James Comey, although the issue may not become the main focus of the probe.

"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"
