New York Times sues Federal Bureau of Investigation to get notes of Comey-Trump talks

23 June 2017, 12:34 | Silvia Roy

Potentially complicating matters, Trump posted a message Friday on Twitter, dismissing the Russia-related probe as a "witch hunt" and lamenting that he's "being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

In a tweet Friday morning, President Donald Trump says he's being investigated for firing FBI Director James Comey.

Mueller has hired 13 new lawyers to help him handle his investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice and if members of his presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the outcome of the 2016 election.

And a third tweet contended that despite the "phony Witch Hunt" - Trump capitalized both words as if the phrase is a proper noun - the economy under his watch is booming.

Trump wrote that the investigation has not "been able to show any proof", an allegation that he assessed with one of his signature Twitter catchphrases: "Sad!"

Oilers trade Jordan Eberle to Islanders for Ryan Strome
Eberle is entering the fifth year of a six-year contract worth US$36 million and had been a frequent subject of trade rumours. On the surface, the deal feels lopsided in favor of the Islanders who have been looking to help Tavares for quite some time.

The White House confirmed that Mr. Mueller was among the candidates Mr. Trump interviewed for the Federal Bureau of Investigation post.

Deomcratic Sen. Dick Durbin said Friday that President Donald Trump will put the country at the "brink of a constitutional crisis" if he fires special counsel Robert Mueller. But what's also striking is that Trump has gone to great lengths to prove that he wasn't under investigation. As Trump still struggles to acknowledge, the USA intelligence community is fully convinced that Russian Federation carried out an attack on our democracy.

US intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow interfered in last year's presidential campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favour.

On Friday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in a statement, "Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations".

Mr. Trump maintains he never colluded with Russian Federation and the investigation was "fake news".

As part of his probe into possible obstruction, Mueller has requested interviews with senior intelligence officials about their conversations with Trump, a former senior intelligence official with knowledge of the discussions confirmed to NBC News.

Vice President Mike Pence has also hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.

Another is, indeed, the possibility that Trump may have obstructed justice in his repeated efforts to quash the investigation.

Pence had taken over the transition team from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. "Nice", Trump wrote in his first tweet. "In fact, when I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself, I said 'you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story, '" Trump said.
