President Trump Blasts Report on Possible Obstruction of Justice Probe

With news reports that the Special Counsel investigating election interference in 2016 by Russian Federation is looking at possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump, Mr. Trump expressed frustration Thursday at the prospect of that review, again taking to Twitter to denounce the probe as a "witch hunt", and complaining that Hillary Clinton should be the subject of a Russia-related investigation, not him.

Trump won the election and in a recent tweet said "Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a awful candidate".

Shortly afterward, Trump wrote: "Crooked H destroyed phones with hammer, "bleached" emails, and had husband meet with AG days before she was cleared- and they talk about obstruction?"

Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, officials said.

"You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history led by some very bad and conflicted people!"




And pretty much everyone on Twitter had the exact same answer to that question:Some wondered if Trump is aware that the election is actually over now. Comey testified under oath earlier in June that Trump asked him during a one-on-one discussion to drop the probe.

In addition, US intelligence officials concluded previous year that Russian Federation meddled in the presidential election, seeking to help Trump defeat Clinton.

Not stopping there, Donald Trump went back on the attack in a follow-up tweet, once against smearing Hillary Clinton in the process.

In addition, a special counsel is reportedly probing whether Trump obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey last month.
