Trump tweets of witch hunt amid Russian Federation probe, bashes Hillary Clinton

The new allegations against Trump center on his own admission that he fired Comey because of the Russian Federation investigation, and suggestions he asked several top intelligence officials for their help altering the inquiry's direction.

It wasn't clear whether the president was basing his tweet on direct knowledge that he is under investigation, or on reports this week that special counsel Robert Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey last month amid the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.

The obstruction of justice investigation into Mr Trump began days after Mr Comey was sacked on May 9, according to people familiar with the matter, The Washington Post said.

Christopher Ruddy, a friend of the president's, on Monday first said that Trump had been "weighing" whether to fire Mueller, who was appointed by Rosenstein after Trump fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in May.

Republican senators on Thursday had urged Trump not to fire Mueller or disrupt the special counsel probe.

Gingrich said on Twitter that 'Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair. Sanders' comment follows several days of speculation as to whether Trump was thinking about firing Mueller.

Comey told Congress last week that before being sacked, Trump pressured him to drop an investigation into his former national security advisor, Mike Flynn, who was forced to quit for lying about his links to Moscow. Rosenstein threatened to resign after the White House cast him as a prime mover of the decision to fire Comey and suggested the president acted only on his recommendation, a person close to the White House, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter, told The Post last month.

The first is into whether anyone on Trump's campaign, or associated with it, with him or with any of his businesses, may have had any illegal dealings with Russian officials or others with ties to the Kremlin, said the official.

President Trump on Friday continued to belittle the investigations of his White House, again using the term "witch hunt" to describe them.

Trump did not directly address the allegations that he is being probed for possibly obstructing justice a potentially impeachable offense. Cohen has worked for Trump since the mid-2000s and was active in the campaign.

"If the president is innocent, why is he afraid of this investigation?" asked NBC's Chuck Todd in a Meet the Press interview. The newspaper noted Mueller had requested interviews with CIA Director Dan Coats, National Security Agency chief Michael Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the former NSA deputy director.

Trump has told associates he has the legal authority to fire Mueller.

"We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because, above all, they love our country", Trump said. "It is in everybody's best interests if we let him do his job". He pretends there has already been a finding that there was no collusion between anyone involved in his presidential campaign and the Russian attempt to meddle in our election.

Trump also trained his fire on his onetime rival Hillary Clinton.

On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that Trump was under investigation for obstruction of justice, citing unnamed officials.

"As long as I'm in this position, he's not going to be fired without good cause", Rosenstein said.
