Trump lashes out at 'bad' Russia investigators

US President Donald Trump today ridiculed as "phony" and "witch hunt" claims about collusion between Russian Federation and his associates after media reports that he is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice.

In a second Tweet, Trump echoed previous claims that he is the victim of what he says is the "single greatest witch hunt in American political history".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein criticized the use of anonymous sources in news stories - casting doubt on recent reports about special counsel Robert Mueller's expanding probe into the Trump campaign and Russia, Politico reported.

Trump on Thursday fired of a series of tweets describing the Russian Federation investigation as a "witch hunt" and he inquired to as to why Hillary Clinton's alleged dealings with Russian Federation were not being investigated.

News has confirmed Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating possible obstruction of justice tied to President Trump.

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.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", a spokesman for Mr Trump's legal team, Mr Mark Corallo, said.

Mueller is now leading the investigation into whether Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election.

President Trump is tweeting his displeasure with the direction of the Russian Federation probe, which reportedly is now veering into an obstruction of justice investigation.

The New York Times sued the FBI on Friday, seeking a court's help in getting the agency to turn over documents created by fired FBI Director James Comey after his conversations with President Donald Trump.

When Rosenstein appeared before the House Appropriations Committee this week, he stated that Comey's firing could very well become a factor for Mueller's investigation.

The interest in Kushner's activities by the special counsel's office is no more extensive than the FBI's interest in his multiple roles on both the Trump campaign and transition team, which CNN reported last month. "Nice", Trump tweeted yesterday.

US President Donald Trump lashes out at Hillary Clinton and the media following reports he is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice. The latest reports suggest that Trump considered the possibility, though his aides managed to talk him out of it.
