'Nobody has been able to show any proof' on Russian Federation

'Nobody has been able to show any proof' on Russian Federation

President Donald Trump appeared to confirm in a tweet on Friday that he is under investigation for firing former FBI Director James Comey and blamed what he called a "Witch Hunt" on "the man who told me to fire" Comey - a possible reference to the deputy attorney general.

Mr Rosenstein played a part in the dismissal of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey who was sacked by Mr Trump in May.

However, it is likely that he was tweeting about Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, or Mueller who is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing ex-FBI Director James Comey last month amid the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.

The latest media reports say the obstruction of justice investigation began just days after Mr Trump fired Mr Comey on 9 May. Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment on the scope of the investigation, but said: "that the Special Counsel's Office has undertaken stringent controls to prohibit unauthorized disclosures and will deal severely with any member who engages in this conduct". "Nice", the president tweeted.

In a statement many have described as "odd", Rosenstein warned the US public to "exercise caution" before trusting media reports citing anonymous officials, despite the fact that the Trump administration continues to use them in official statements to the media.

Trump, who has hired his own lawyer for probes by a special counsel and congressional committees, lashed out on Thursday after a report he was under investigation for possible obstruction of justice.

Hodgkinson ― a 66-year-old resident of IL ― who targeted a GOP team baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday. On Wednesday night, Trump, accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, visited Scalise at the hospital.

The White House initially said the memo was critical to the decision, but Mr Trump later later said it was irrelevant, because he'd made up his mind beforehand.

Trump again took to Twitter following the reports of Pence hiring a lawyer, suggesting Hillary Clinton should be the one under investigation. Last week, former FBI Director James Comey told Congress he believes he was sacked by Mr Trump to undermine the agency's Russian Federation probe.

Trump wrote, "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

The second, the official continued, is into whether if any potential offences were committed, Mr Trump or others attempted to cover them up or obstruct the investigation into them.

Comey told a Senate panel last week he believed Trump dismissed him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation probe. Comey testified in a Senate hearing last week that he believed he was sacked "because of the Russian Federation investigation".
