Trump lashes out at 'bad,' 'conflicted' Russia investigators

On Friday morning - still upset - Trump berated the press again.

The Washington Post reported on Wednesday that investigators were looking into possible obstruction of justice.

President Donald Trump says the economy is improving and job numbers are up, despite the "phony Witch Hunt" against him.

The Post reported that the obstruction of justice investigation of the president began days after James Comey was sacked as the FBI Director on May 9.

In a statement, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said she is growing increasingly concerned that the president will attempt to fire not only Mueller, but also Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein who appointed Mueller.

The White House has directed questions for details to outside legal counsel, which has not responded.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation has expanded to include the finances and business dealings of senior adviser Jared Kushner, The Washington Post reported Thursday. (Let's forget, for a moment, that typically the commander-in-chief is considered the top official of the USA and thus has the final say in all executive branch decisions.) On the day before Trump fired Comey, so the story goes, Rosenstein and his boss AG Jeff Sessions were summoned to the Oval Office where Rosenstein was instructed to write a memo detailing the flaws in Comey's performance as the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations.

There has been no indication that Mueller told Trump to fire Comey.

Trump is under increasing pressure on the Russian Federation probe.

Trump's tweets came after the top lawyer for his transition team warned the organization's officials to preserve all records and other materials related to the Russian Federation probe.

The order by the general counsel for the transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government. The transition, a nonprofit structurally separate from the Trump campaign, continues to operate with a small staff.

Known to watch cable news often, Trump has even taken to recording morning shows to watch later in the day and has "complained nonstop".

This is what he said in May.

The tweets are the latest in a week of angry social media responses by the President over a report by the Washington Post that Mr Mueller was looking into whether he had obstructed justice. "I can go around them", the tweet read.

Less than an hour later, Trump sent out another tweet, this one aimed directly at Rosenstein. "Why is [it] that Hillary Clintons [sic] family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"

"Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great".
