Do Americans believe Trump is impeding Russian Federation investigation?

After months of reports by the American media that Trump was under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the story died when the former FBI director James Comey testified under oath that Trump was personally never under investigation.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The special counsel appointed to investigate Russian influence in the 2016 presidential campaign is now examining whether President Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice, it has been reported.

Grassley added that Comey's insistence that Trump seemed to put pressure on him to force the FBI to drop its Russian Federation investigation "is extremely troubling". Those officials are: Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence; Michael Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency; and Richard Ledgett, the former NSA deputy director.

"The Judiciary Committee has an obligation to fully investigate any alleged improper partisan interference in law enforcement investigations", Grassley wrote to his Democratic counterpart, Senator Dianne Feinstein of California.

But despite repeated questions from Congress this week, Mattis wouldn't reveal his thinking on a troop increase. At the height of operations in Iraq, there were more than 170,000 Americans on the ground.

The Washington Post, citing anonymous sources, had reported some hours earlier that Mueller, who is probing Russia's election interference and the possible links between Moscow and Trump's campaign, had added a key element to that probe, namely that the President would now be under investigation for obstruction of justice.

President Donald Trump is taking to Twitter denounce reports that the Russian Federation investigation is widening to examine whether he tried to obstruct justice.

It's a shift in the FBI investigation, which previously focused on Russian hacking during the election, possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, and possible financial crimes by Trump associates.

Did Trump Just Admit He's Under Investigation for Obstruction of Justice?
On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported Mueller is investigating Trump directly , over alleged obstruction of justice. President Trump refrained from tweeting about so-called witch hunts and "phony" stories on Wednesday, June 14, when Mr.

Comey declined Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley's request to testify and went before the Senate Intelligence Committee instead. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a letter announcing the move.

The probe "could examine the thorny question of whether Mr. Trump improperly interfered in an ongoing investigation" by firing Comey, according to the newspaper.

The lawyer for the president's son-in-law and close adviser said there was nothing surprising about the Post's report.

Grassley said Comey's firing and Lynch's actions should both be investigated.
