Trump: They’re Going After Me for Obstruction of Justice on ‘Phony Story’
(Free Beacon) President Donald Trump appeared to confirm reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating him for possible obstruction of justice, tweeting Thursday that "now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story."
Mueller is interviewing senior intelligence officials in the widening probe that now directly includes Trump, the Washington Post reported. The investigation originally focused on Russian meddling in the election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, but Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey last month changed things, according to officials.
