Trump tweets about Clinton after news of obstruction of justice investigation

Rosenstein must recuse himself from involvement in Mueller probe

Trump rails at probe's contradictions

Trump's tweets came after a report from the Washington Post on Wednesday that said Special Counsel Robert Mueller has expanded his investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election to include whether Trump has obstructed justice.

Mueller is also reportedly investigating whether Trump associates committed financial crimes. On Thursday alone, he posted four tweets about the ongoing probe.

President Trump said in May that he fired Comey in part because of his disclosures previous year about the FBI's investigation into Clinton's private email server.

With news reports that the Special Counsel investigating election interference in 2016 by Russian Federation is looking at possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump, Mr. Trump expressed frustration Thursday at the prospect of that review, again taking to Twitter to denounce the probe as a "witch hunt", and complaining that Hillary Clinton should be the subject of a Russia-related investigation, not him.

The overwhelming majority of mocks are predicting that the Sixers are going to take Josh Jackson with the third pick. L.A. also has the No.28 overall pick in the first round, which they acquired in a trade with the Houston Rockets.


The obstruction of justice investigation into Trump began days after Comey was sacked on May 9, according to people familiar with the matter, the Washington Post said. Former President Bill Clinton met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on an airport tarmac near the end of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server, but there's no evidence the former secretary of state orchestrated the get-together, as Trump implied. In fact, Trump referenced "Crooked H" in a tweet, of course, just yesterday.
