On Thursday, President Donald Trump asserted that his political enemies are going from one fake claim to another just so they can ruin his presidency.
The president took to Twitter and wrote, “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. Nice”
As indicated by Washington Post report on Wednesday, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who is supervising the Russia investigation, is now examining if Donald Trump tried to block justice in the examination.
Now-fired FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee last Thursday that the president was initially not under any examination, but Trump is allegedly now part of the probe.
According to officials, regardless of Comey’s reassurances the president wasn’t under any examination, changed after he was dismissed in May.
The examination into whether Trump block justice apparently started days after Comey’s was fired on May 9.
The White House is alluding questions about the Russian investigation to Marc Kasowitz, Trump’s personal lawyer.
“The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal,” the Washington Post was told by Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Kasowitz.
The bureau is likewise probing into claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government, even though, so far there hasn’t been any proof about this allegation.
According to officials who get in contact with the Washington Post, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and his former deputy Richard Ledgett will speak with Mueller’s investigators.
Last week, Coats and Rogers testified before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and were questioned about their private discussions with the president.
But neither Coats nor Rogers spared any details of those conversations.
Though it was reported that President Trump had asked the two intelligence officials to explicitly deny of there being any evidence showing conspiracy between his campaign and the Kremlin.
Coats said that President Trump asked if he could intercede with Comey to push him to ease off the FBI’s examination into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
