President Trump Is Being Investigated for Obstruction of Justice

US President Donald Trump has lashed out at Hillary Clinton and the media after a report he was under investigation for possible obstruction of justice. "Witch Hunt", the president wrote in his tweet.

"The vice president is focused entirely on his duties and promoting the president's agenda and looks forward to a swift conclusion of this matter".

President Donald Trump complained on social media about the wide-ranging investigation of Russian interference in the US election as Robert Mueller appeared to widen his probe to include whether Trump tried to obstruct justice. "Nice", Trump wrote in his first tweet.

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

On Thursday night, the White House released a rather mysterious statement, urging Americans to desist from believing reports emanating from "anonymous" sources.

"There's still no evidence of obstruction, and current and former leaders in the intelligence community have repeatedly said there's been no effort to impede the investigation in any way", she said in a statement. Comey testified in a Senate hearing last week that he believed he was sacked "because of the Russian Federation investigation". The White House has denied any collusion, and Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win.

Accusations of obstruction arose last month when Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

The Washington Post reported Thursday evening that Mueller's team is also focusing on the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law.

Mr Rosenstein took over the investigation into whether Russian Federation interfered with the U.S. election after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself in March.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation probe in early March, making Rosentein the person to appoint Mueller. Mueller also has expansive powers to investigate any matters that develop from his initial investigation.

"That is a great, great team of complete professionals, so let's let him do his job", former independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, told ABC News. Recent news reports have suggested Trump sought all three officials' help in pressuring FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Mr Trump's legal team, on Wednesday denounced the report, saying: "The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal". But Rosenstein, too, may ultimately have to hand off oversight given his role in Trump's decision to fire Comey. Baker himself has declined to make any comments.
