Trump being investigated by special counsel for possible obstruction of justice

How did the investigations begin? Richard Burr and Mark Warner, the Republican and Democratic leadership of the Senate intelligence committee Wednesday. White House frustrations with the Justice Department spilled into public view last week, when Trump on Twitter criticized the legal strategy in defending his proposed travel ban.

What did the intelligence agencies find?

Putin and other Russian officials have repeatedly denied interfering in the US election.

"There's still no evidence of obstruction, and current and former leaders in the intelligence community have repeatedly said there's been no effort to impede the investigation in any way", McDaniel continued in her statement.

The investigation into Trump started after former FBI Director James Comey was sacked, according to the Washington Post report. Mueller was appointed by US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US polls. After Comey's much-watched Senate testimony, the president said in a press conference that he would testify under oath regarding his interactions and conversations with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

What has Trump said about Russia's role in the election? The New York Times reported that Trump had been waved off the idea by advisers. "My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted", Rosenstein said at the time.

The assailant later died from injuries he received during the shooting , President Donald Trump announced from the White House. James Hodgkinson , 66, of Belleville, Illinois, was the alleged shooter , and was pronounced dead Wednesday morning.

However, Adam Schiff, a Democrat member of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff, said the House would not tolerate Trump firing Mueller. Wray will need Senate confirmation.

Rumors about whether Trump committed obstruction of justice have been circulating after Comey accused the president last Thursday of firing him to undermine the FBI's investigation into possible collusion with Russian Federation.

After Comey's testimony in which he acknowledged telling Trump that he was not under investigation, Trump tweeted that he felt "total and complete vindication".

The anonymous officials said that Ledgett's contact with Trump was uncertain, but that he wrote a memo about the call between Rogers and Trump.

"While the president has the right to, he has no intention to do so", Sanders said. He provided the first batch on June 6.

Comey himself had a riveting appearance before the same Senate panel last week, with some key moments centred on Sessions.

Just weeks ago, Gingrich had heaped praise on Mueller, hailing him as a "superb choice" for special counsel whose reputation was "impeccable for honesty and integrity".

Is Trump himself under investigation?

Nevertheless, the Post story is a blockbuster, if only because it should silence the Trump camp's long-held insistence that the president has never been personally under investigation for wrongdoing. However, people close to the president said he may not change his mind if he comes to know the Russian Federation investigation was compromised.

The Post's report cited unnamed officials, who claimed that "the obstruction of justice investigation into the president began days after Comey was sacked on May 9..."

The White House declined to comment, referring questions to Kasowitz.
