President Trump Reveals He Is Being Investigated

19 June 2017

Meanwhile, the top attorney for the Trump transition team has ordered the organization's staff to preserve all records related to Mueller's widening investigation. Comey also testified he had told Trump he was not under investigation.

Trump, who celebrated his 71st birthday Wednesday, refrained from commenting until Thursday morning.

In a second Tweet, Trump echoed previous claims that he is the victim of what he says is the "single greatest witch hunt in American political history".

Vice-President Mike Pence has hired an outside lawyer to handle his response to inquiries into possible ties between President Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

President Donald Trump has taken on "obsessive behavior", constantly sending out defensive tweets, saving morning news programs to watch later and even blurting out during meetings that he's not under investigation, Politico reported Thursday.

The "man" President Trump is referring to is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a letter recommending Comey be fired.

Sessions explained to the Senate Intelligence Committee that Comey's concern pertained to the protocol though which the Department of Justice communicated with the White House.

There has been no indication that Mr Mueller told the president to fire Mr Comey.

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.

In a tweet, the president also seemed to accuse the USA deputy attorney general of pursuing a "Witch Hunt".

But Mr Mueller has been appointed special counsel to investigate Russian involvement in the presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Trump denied Comey's allegations and said he would be willing to go under oath to give his version of their interactions.

Trump appeared to be responding to reports this week that the FBI is investigating Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his apparent attempts to quash the bureau's investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, National Security Agency's head Mike Rogers, and Rogers's recently departed deputy Richard Ledgett agreed to be interviewed by Mueller's investigators as early as this week, the Post reported.
