Trump confirms he's under investigation for firing former FBI Director James Comey

Trump Blasts Reports That He's Under Investigation The Latest: Trump tweets again, in defense of his tweeting

U.S. President Donald Trump is being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller for possible obstruction of justice, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing unidentified officials.

Gingrich told The Associated Press in an interview this week that his feelings about him began to change after Comey testified to a Senate panel that he had leaked his personal memos in order to trigger the appointment of a special counsel.

"Mueller is setting up a dragnet of obstruction, financial questions and every aspect of Trump's life and his associates lives", Gingrich wrote on Twitter, adding "very risky".

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

"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?", Trump tweeted just before 4 p.m. EDT.

Trump named Christopher Wray, a former Justice Department official who recently served as personal attorney to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, as Federal Bureau of Investigation director earlier this month.

Trump also attacked the media Friday morning.

With President Trump's instructions, Vice President Mike Pence has hired Richard Cullen, his own lawyer to represent the U.S. President in the special counsel investigation and congressional inquiries into Russia's role in the 2016 election, the CNN reported. Pence headed the Trump transition until inauguration day.

The memos direct former staffers to prevent the automatic deletion of any records and former Trump transition officials are asked to send in materials to the Trump transition team.

Seth Moulton, a congressman from Salem in Massachusetts, tweeted, "As the Representative of Salem, MA, I can confirm that this is false", referring to Mr Trump's "witch hunt" whine. However, the mainstream media in the United States is focusing on the part of James Comey testimony where he said that Trump told him about the former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, "Hope you can let him go".

"Why is [it] that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"

In another tweet, Trump called it "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!" Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon.
