Ken Starr: Not Enough Evidence for Trump Obstruction Case

Special counsel is investigating Donald Trump for possible obstruction of justice

Starr on Thursday also said he believes it's within Trump's rights to fire Mueller, and said that he himself could have been fired "for good cause" back when he was investigating Clinton.

President Donald Trump has mounted another Twitter attack on former election opponent Hillary Clinton, condemning her for previously destroying her phones and "bleaching" her emails.

He also brought up Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and questioned whether her actions amounted to obstruction of justice. On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that Mueller's investigation included a query into whether the President had obstructed justice.

Obstruction issues emerged during a February 14 meeting in the Oval Office, when the president told former FBI Director James Comey that he hoped his disgraced former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn would elude criminal prosecution.

But Comey would reopen the investigation in the final weeks of the presidential campaign after the discovery of hundreds of emails from Clinton on the computer of her aide Huma Abedin. "Now tomorrow, you'll say 'Donald Trump wants to get along with Russian Federation, this is bad.' It's not awful; it's good", Trump added.

"We had Hillary Clinton try and do a reset". It is not clear if the bureau was the source of the Post's report.

"I took it as a very disturbing thing, very concerning, but that a conclusion I'm sure the special counsel will work towards to try to understand what the intention was there", he said.

Trump has been reacting to reports that he is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation investigation.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is opening up a probe into President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey - and whether any "improper interference" with the FBI occurred.

The president's tweet Thursday morning suggests he remains dismissive of the investigation.

Trump added: "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"
