Trump confirms he's under investigation for firing former FBI Director James Comey

What's next in the Russia investigation
Although Rosenstein didn't mention any specific media reports, it appears it could be in response to a Washington Post story published Wednesday, alleging that the special counsel in the Russian Federation probe is investigating President Trump for potential obstruction of justice, related to his firing of then-FBI Director James Comey.
It is believed he was referring to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mr Mueller as special prosecutor to investigate the Trump campaign.
President Trump issued an eyebrow-raising tweet Friday morning. It was unclear whether his tweet about being under investigation was based on direct knowledge or new media reports that suggest Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey.
Significantly, Preet Bharara, the India-born former top U.S. federal prosecutor, earlier this week had said that there was enough evidence to begin an obstruction of justice case against Trump over his alleged interference in the Russian Federation probe.
President Donald Trump says it's "sad" that seven months of investigations and hearings into possible links between his campaign and Russian Federation have been fruitless. He said he believes Mr Trump ultimately fired him "because of the Russian Federation investigation". Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations", Rosenstein's full statement read. Though some in the White House have preached caution, fearing a repeat of the firestorm over Comey's firing, many in Trump's orbit - including his son Donald Trump Jr. and adviser Newt Gingrich - have deemed Mueller biased and worthy of dismissal.
Kushner's company had been seeking financing for a $1.8 billion purchase of an office building on Fifth Avenue in NY, the Post reports.
"The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", said Mark Corallo, the spokesman, according to the Post.
