Trump lashes out at 'bad,' 'conflicted' Russia investigators

The leaders of the Senate intelligence committee say In a statement issued Wednesday that they "look forward to future engagements" with Robert Mueller.

"That is a great, great team of complete professionals, so let's let him do his job", former independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, told ABC News. The obstruction of justice investigation into Trump began days after Comey was sacked on May 9, according to people familiar with the matter, the Washington Post said.

The Post reported that the obstruction of justice investigation of the president began days after James Comey was sacked as the FBI Director on May 9.

Based on accounts of people familiar with the investigation, the reports say Mueller plans to interview Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency (NSA) Director Michael Rogers and former NSA Deputy Director Richard Ledgett.

It also also heard from Attorney General Jeff Sessions about the Comey-Trump meeting and talked to several high-ranking officials about whether the president tried to interfere with the Russian Federation probe, CNN noted.

Trump responded to the Post story Thursday morning with a tweet once again denouncing the investigation as a witch-hunt.

In a tweet early Thursday, Trump said: "They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story".

Trump ignored shouted questions from reporters about the ongoing Russian Federation controversy as he departed the White House Friday for Miami.

He's been advised of the legal ramifications from making these presidential statements on Twitter, but he and at least a few advisers have come to believe the political fight is more urgent.


Mr. Mueller's investigation appeared to be reaching a circle of current and former officials.

To pressure Trump, or possibly seek his removal, the Democrats, a section of the Republican Party and their media allies such as the New York Times and Washington Post are employing anti-democratic means, coordinating their moves with the spy agencies that carry out illegal surveillance of the American people and plot wars of aggression all over the world.

Richard Cullen is a former Virginia attorney general and a former USA attorney for the eastern district of Virginia.

Trump demonstrated Friday morning that the Russian Federation probe continues to consume his attention, tweeting a stream of messages decrying the controversy.

The Washington Post, citing unidentified officials, reported on Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating the Republican president for possible obstruction of justice.

Sessions was sworn in February 9 but did not actually step away from the investigation until March 2, the day after The Washington Post reported on his two previously undisclosed Kislyak meetings.

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Trump's personal attorney Marc Kasowitz, reacting to the news stories that prompted the Trump tweets, blamed the Federal Bureau of Investigation for leaking information regarding the president, which he called "outrageous, inexcusable and illegal".

Feinstein also is a member of the Senate Intelligence committee, which is conducting its own Russian Federation probe.

Mr Comey testified under oath that Mr Trump had told him during a private meeting: "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go". Comey testified that the member of his leadership team said that although it was true at the moment that Trump was not under investigation, it was possible that could change.
