Special counsel is investigating Donald Trump for possible obstruction of justice

Special counsel is investigating Donald Trump for possible obstruction of justice

"Nice", he wrote in reaction to a Washington Post report alleging he is under investigation for potential obstruction of justice.

As expected, Trump and his team have denied any wrongdoing, with the president repeatedly referring to the allegations against him as a "witch hunt".

In response to reports that Trump is facing a criminal investigation, Mark Corallo, spokesman for Trump's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, said in a statement, "The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable, and illegal".

The special counsel is also seeking documents from the National Security Agency relating to the intelligence agency's interactions with the White House on the Russian Federation investigation.

President Donald Trump groused Thursday that no one is investigating Democrats' "dealings with Russia" while there are multiple investigations into what he phrased as his "non-dealings" with Moscow.

Borrowing some presidential campaign rhetoric, Trump called Hillary Clinton crooked and said she "destroyed phones" with a hammer and "bleached emails".

Ghobas said: "The idea that there is an Islamic solution to Middle East's social and economic problems is not something we are persuaded of".

"Why isn't the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia", he tweeted in March, adding in a second message, "Trump Russia story is a hoax". Trump reportedly considered firing Mueller as special counsel, but was talked out of it by aides who anxious about the consequences of taking such an action.

Comey told the Senate hearing that he believed he was dismissed by Trump because he did not stop the FBI's investigation into Flynn.

And in February, three days after former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn resigned and two days after The New York Times ran a blockbuster story about Trump campaign aides reported ties to Russian Federation, the president used a news conference to try to divert attention to his old foe.

Clinton has previously said she handed over all of her work emails to investigators, totaling over 55,000 printed pages, according to the former secretary of state. Not to mention that Trump and several of his surrogates have complained that people can't seem to let the election go.

Clinton would later blame Comey and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for costing her the election.
