Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Trump Tweet: ‘I am Under Investigation’

In a list of several angry tweets, President Donald Trump announced that he is under investigation for firing former FBI Director James Comey.

He had quite a bit to say on other topics first.

Trump began his tweet-storm b revisiting his long-running disgust with the fact that allegations about Russian connections to his campaign and administration are still being raised despite a lack of proof.

“After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my ‘collusion with the Russians,’ nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad!” Trump tweeted.

Trump then went after the news media.

“The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media – over 100 million people! I can go around them,” he tweeted.

Trump sought to remind his followers that despite the investigations, he is accomplishing his goals as president.

“Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great. Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!” Trump tweeted.

Then came a tweet that revealed what had only been alleged.

“I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt,” Trump tweeted.

That last part was rather unclear. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate the Trump-Russia connections. Rosenstein also wrote a memo recommending that Comey be fired.

The Washington Post on Thursday reported that Mueller is “interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice.”

The obstruction claim is reported to focus on Trump’s conversation with Comey concerning the FBI investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn. During testimony last week, Comey said he believed Trump’s comments were designed to influence him to end the investigation, although he also noted that Trump did not order him to do so.

On Thursday, Rosenstein made a statement about anonymous sources and the media.

“Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous ‘officials,’ particularly when they do not identify the country – let alone the branch or agency of government – with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated,” Rosenstein wrote. “Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations.”
