Witch Hunt! : Trump tweets he is under FBI investigation

Donald Trump confirms obstruction of justice probe claiming ‘witch hunt

Rosenstein authored a memo that criticized former FBI Director James Comey over his handling of Hillary Clinton's emails. Trump said on Twitter, calling the probe into him a "Witch Hunt".

It's yet another tweet that's unleashed intense media speculation... a presidential post of less than 140 characters.

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

Consider new reports that Rosenstein is considering recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe and we may be looking at Trump's most consequential tweet storm yet.

Mr. Trump's latest tweets drew a concerned statement from Sen.

His investigation then grew to include looking at whether President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey because he was unwilling to back off the Russian Federation investigation. Mr. Trump's lawyer has accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of leaking material.

However, The Washington Post report on Wednesday said that changed shortly after Mr Comey's firing.

Sessions explained to the Senate Intelligence Committee that Comey's concern pertained to the protocol though which the Department of Justice communicated with the White House.

Putin warns new sanctions will 'complicate' ties between Russian Federation and US
The bill, which passed 98-2, targets Russian individuals accused of corruption and key sectors of the Russian economy. During that process, the sanctions will remain in place unless the Congress votes in agreement with the President.

Trump, however, added that the man conducting the probe is the same individual who advised him to fire Comey. "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office". They are Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager; Rick Gates, Manafort's business partner; Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser; Flynn; and Roger J. Stone Jr., an informal adviser to Mr. Trump. If Trump is confirming the existence of an investigation targeting him, it would represent an extraordinary development less than five months into his presidency.

Pence had taken over the transition team from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

In addition, officials also said investigators have been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates.

President Donald Trump has appeared to acknowledge he is under investigation in the inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election. In part, the memo read that former transition team members "have a duty to preserve any physical and electronic records that may be related in any way to the subject matter of the pending investigations".

Earlier this week, The Washington Post reported Mueller was investigating the possibility the President obstructed justice by suggesting then-FBI Director James Comey drop an FBI investigation into Michael Flynn.

President Donald Trump is telling his Twitter followers that they are witnessing the "single greatest WITCH HUNT in American history".

On Thursday Trump derided a "witch hunt" against him, led by some "very bad" people.
