Trump Is Officially Under Investigation

Cullen is a former federal prosecutor who has long ties to former FBI director James Comey, whom Trump fired on May 9. Many signs point to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed the special counsel.

Mr Mueller was appointed as special counsel to investigate Moscow's involvement in the presidential election past year and possible collusion by Trump campaign associates with the Russians, but there has been no indication that Mr Mueller told the president to fire Mr Comey.

His latest tweets follow a report this week in The Washington Post reported that special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election is looking into whether the president attempted to obstruct justice.

The special counsel appointed to investigate Russian influence in the 2016 presidential campaign is now examining whether President Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice, NBC News reported.

Earlier this month, Rosenstein told The Associated Press that "if anything that I did winds up being relevant to his investigation then, as Director Mueller and I discussed, if there's a need from me to recuse, I will".

"With this in mind please immediately suspend any deletion, modification, overwriting, or other possible destruction of the information described above, including electronic information, and take all reasonable measures to preserve this information", the memo said, according to the Times.

The obstruction of justice investigation into Trump began days after Comey was sacked, according to people familiar with the matter, the Washington Post said.

Mr Trump was strongly critical of some of Mr Comey's testimony but said Mr Comey had vindicated him by saying while he was at the agency, Mr Trump was not the subject of the FBI's Russian Federation probe. First, it is the president himself acknowledging that he is, in fact, under investigation for possible obstruction of justice-something even on Thursday the White House would not acknowledge. These officials claim Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, head of the National Security Agency Adm. Mike Rogers, and Rogers' recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller's investigators as soon as this week. "If the President tries to fire him to diminish or stop this investigation, I would hope that finally there would be a bipartisan uproar against it".
