Trump Tweet Blasts 'Obstruction of Justice' Reports

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".

On Thursday, Trump blasted news reports that he is under criminal investigation as a "witch hunt" against him led by some "very bad" people.

Examining such possible charges will allow investigators to interview key administration figures including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and possibly President Trump himself, said the source familiar with the Mueller investigation.

Accusations of obstruction arose last month when Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

Citing unidentified "officials", the Post reported Mueller's probe has taken a dramatic turn.

The White House on Wednesday evening declined to comment about the Post's obstruction of justice report. Comey testified in a Senate hearing last week that he believed he was sacked "because of the Russian Federation investigation".

Friday's tweets are the latest in a week of angry social media responses by the president over a report by The Washington Post that Mueller was looking into whether Trump obstructed justice. The New York Times also reported the story.

Rosenstein told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee Tuesday that he saw no cause for Mueller's dismissal.

Since then, Trump said Comey's statements under oath "weren't true", and that he was willing to testify before Congress.

"That means it wasn't Robert Mueller's decision personally to launch this investigation into the president - it would have been started before him, is that right?"

In a pivotal shift in the investigation that has riveted Americans like no other in decades, senior intelligence officials have agreed to be interviewed by investigators working for the special counsel, Robert Mueller, the Post said.

The Post report only further embroils Trump and his presidency in legal problems that also feature lawsuits from the District of Columbia and Maryland, as well as almost 200 congressional Democrats, over his business holdings and foreign governments.

That's critical given that Comey's sworn testimony regarding the pressure put on him by Trump to leave off an investigation into deposed national security adviser Michael Flynn runs directly counter to Trump's assertions about their conversations.

Before his dismissal, Comey confirmed publicly that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was in the midst of investigating potential ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government during the election.
