Trump mocks Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to prove 'Russian Collusion'

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", Trump wrote on Twitter, later repeating his accusation that the probe is a "witch hunt".

Trump criticized media reports that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating him for obstruction of justice as a part of a wider probe into alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and Trump's campaign, saying Americans are watching "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history".

Apparently, this major uptick in the investigation into Flynn, efforts at Russian sabotage and White House collusion and now the obstruction-of-justice element by Trump himself came days after then-FBI Director Jim Comey was sacked by Trump.

A source familiar with the Mueller investigation confirmed the Post report, saying an examination of possible obstruction of justice charges was "unavoidable" given Mr. Comey's testimony. The newspaper noted that in a new phase of the investigation, Mueller plans on interviewing senior intelligence officials about Trump's conduct. Though FBI director said that there was no direct request or order to drop the Flynn investigation from Trump, legal experts have confirmed that President Trump being the chief of the executive branch can even order the FBI to drop charges as he can pardon nearly anybody by the powers vested in him by the Constitution of the United States.

Within the last few hours, Trump has confirmed that he is indeed under investigation for obstruction of justice.

Five people briefed on the interview requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said that Daniel Coats, the current director of national intelligence, Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, and Rogers's recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller's investigators as early as this week.
