Trump confirms he is under investigation

Share

Friday's tweets are the latest in a week of angry social media responses by the president over a report by The Washington Post that Mueller was looking into whether Trump obstructed justice.

Rosenstein oversees Mueller, but the deputy attorney general is not actually conducting the investigation. "Witch Hunt", the president wrote on Twitter.

Rosenstein wrote a memo critical of Comey that the White House released after Trump fired Comey.

The president has denied that he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation and has also disputed that he's attempted to block the investigation into his campaign's possible role in Russia's election-related hacking.

I am being investigated for firing the FBI director by the deputy attorney general, who told me to fire the FBI Director!

Cohen has worked for Trump since the mid-2000s and was active in the campaign.

Trump did not make it clear whom his tweet was referring to.

The tweet, which seems to confirm that Trump himself is under investigation, appears to reference Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as "the man" investigating him.

Trump also lashed out at the media, on a day that aides hoped would be focused on his decision to undo some of Barack Obama's detente with Cuba.

"A special counsel investigating the president of the United States must first and foremost be beyond the question of conflict", he said.

As special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the election intensifies, key players in the Trump administration are taking action. The attorney general was at a White House meeting when the notification came from Rosenstein, prompting the enraged President to scold the attorney general for the turn of events.

He continued by saying: "Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm ...massive regulation cuts, 36 new legislative bills signed, great new S.C.Justice, and Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works!" "We're a nation of laws that apply equally to everyone, a lesson the president would be wise to learn", she said.

President Donald Trump has appeared to acknowledge he is under investigation in the inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

Why is Mr Trump being investigated?

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

"President Trump has started the clock on the Rosenstein firing watch", said Republican strategist Evan Siegfried. And allies of former President Bill Clinton also raised concerns of political bias by Kenneth Starr, who led the Whitewater investigation that ultimately led to Clinton's impeachment. "He was referencing the Washington Post story from Wednesday night based on anonymous, illegal leaks".
