Dianne Feinstein 'Increasingly Concerned' Donald Trump Will Try to Fire Investigators

Dianne Feinstein 'Increasingly Concerned' Donald Trump Will Try to Fire Investigators

US President Donald Trump has lashed out on Twitter over reports he is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice, saying he is the victim of a "witch hunt".

The "man" President Trump is referring to is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a letter recommending Comey be fired. The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the investigators were looking into possible obstruction of justice.

Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, National Security Agency's head Mike Rogers, and Rogers's recently departed deputy Richard Ledgett agreed to be interviewed by Mueller's investigators as early as this week, the Post reported.

The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that it interviewed five people briefed on the matter, but it did not identify its sources by name.

In a statement many have described as "odd", Rosenstein warned the US public to "exercise caution" before trusting media reports citing anonymous officials, despite the fact that the Trump administration continues to use them in official statements to the media.

The Trump tweets come after the top lawyer for his transition team warned organization officials to preserve all records and other materials related to the Russian Federation probe.

The White House could assert executive privilege to prevent those officials from being questioned about conversations with the president, which could lead to battles in court, where judges have tended to hold that criminal investigations can override such privilege, the New York Times reports.

Trump again took to Twitter following the reports of Pence hiring a lawyer, suggesting Hillary Clinton should be the one under investigation.

In his tweet today, Trump seemingly confirmed the report and reiterated his charge linking his presidential campaign with Russian Federation is nothing but a political witch-hunt. Trump later said he had planned to fire Comey regardless of what recommendation he received from Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

Even though Trump was told by former FBI Director James Comey earlier this year that he was not personally under investigation, officials tell the Post that changed shortly after Comey's firing.

The White House has said the president "has never asked Mr Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn".

Regardless of the outcome, the spectre of Mr Mueller examining the possibility of obstruction of justice appeared to be a new blow to Mr Trump, whose first five months in office have been clouded by the federal and congressional probes into the Russian Federation issue.
