Witch Hunt! : Trump tweets he is under FBI investigation

President Donald Trump walks from Marine One to board Air Force One for a trip to Miami to deliver a speech on Cuba policy, Friday, June 16, 2017, at Andrews Air Force Base, Md.

It was unclear if Trump was referencing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein or Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Before his dismissal, Comey confirmed the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been investigating alleged Russian government efforts to interfere in the election, including any links between Trump's campaign and Moscow.

President Donald Trump continued to fume this week over the continued attention paid to the Russian Federation probes, especially following a report that he's now under investigation for potential obstruction of justice.

Trump's tweet deepens the potential conflict by asserting that Comey's firing was Rosenstein's idea, Feldman says. A spokeswoman said Trump did not intend to. Comey testified before the Senate intelligence committee he felt pressured by the White House to drop the investigation. It would also impose new sanctions for Russia's conduct in Syria and its interference in the 2016 election.

Is there anyone out there who is actually surprised that special counselor Robert Mueller would be looking into whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice in connection with the Russian Federation probe?

A day earlier, Trump had questioned why his general election rival Hillary Clinton was not being investigated.

Vice President Mike Pence has also hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.

The debate was then on as to whether or not Trump should be charged with obstruction of justice.

But the Briton insists he has no intentions on seeking the number one status at Mercedes for the remaining 14 races of the season. But the triple world champion admitted he can ill-afford another off-colour weekend if he is to halt Vettel's charge.

President Trump confirmed Friday that he is under investigation for firing FBI Director James Comey.

"And second, if the president thinks he can fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and replace him with someone who will shut down the investigation, he is in for a rude awakening".

Trump's young presidency has been battered by allegations - under investigation both by Congress and the FBI - that Russian Federation interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favor, in possible collusion with Trump's campaign team.

An overwhelming majority, 52 percent, also said they disapproved of Trump's decision to fire Comey, while 22 percent said they approved of the decision and 24 percent said they were indifferent.

"Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic and jobs numbers are great". Still, the rate declined mainly for a less-than-encouraging reason: People stopped looking for work in May and so were no longer counted as unemployed. "I hope you can let this go".

Trump has not been shy about venting his frustration on Twitter.

But he has so far refused to curtail his social media postings. What is clear is that he could order the Justice Department to ax Mueller, which may result in Rosenstein's departure and would certainly intensify the uproar over the investigation.

The latter being Trump's effort (dutifully followed by his media groupies) to slime Mueller and the talented legal team he has assembled.
