Trump Under Investigation For Possible Obstruction Of Justice

The letter said the investigation would also probe Comey's testimony that Loretta Lynch, attorney general under former USA president Barack Obama, had directed him to describe an FBI probe into former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton's e-mail practices as merely a "matter" and to avoid calling it an investigation.

The President's words of apparent confirmation come after a week of reports from Washington that his firing of Mr Comey, who was heading up a probe into his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his possible ties to the Kremlin, had led the investigation to broaden its scope.

The White House has denied any collusion, and Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win.

Early Thursday morning Trump took to Twitter to slam the "made up" and "phony" story about the Trump campaign's collusion with the Russians.

The special counsel appointed to investigate Russian influence in the 2016 presidential campaign is now examining whether President Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice, it has been reported.

In the letter announcing his former FBI director's termination last month, President Donald Trump went out of his way to thank James Comey for telling him "on three separate occasions" that he was not under investigation.

Now, Mr Trump has suggested that he is indeed being investigated.

The Times wrote that the memo is "the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump's associates and Russian Federation".

The President wants America to believe that the man who lied to them about everything from the crowd size at his inauguration to President Obama spying on him is to be believed over a mountain of evidence.

Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee last week and described writing the memos as well as their contents.

The Washington Post story prompted a furious reaction from Mr Trump's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, who issued a statement saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation was behind the story.

Mr Trump's legal team said the latest leak to the media was "outrageous".

He did not deny the story, however.

Mueller briefed Senators Wednesday on his work.

He met with the leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday to ensure future investigations don't conflict.

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called the accusation in the Post unfounded and said it "changes nothing". "I can go around them", the tweet read.

"The continued illegal leaks are the only crime here".

The FBI probe into Trump's election campaign ties with Russian Federation is now examining whether he tried to thwart the investigation, the Washington Post report.
