President Trump Blasts Report on Possible Obstruction of Justice Probe

The meeting raised eyebrows because it occurred in the middle of an FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.

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 Washington Post first reported the news on Wednesday evening.

US President Donald Trump, who claimed that the probe into his alleged obstruction of justice was "fake news", turns to Twitter to deflect charges and attack former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, her husband and the Democratic party.

The move by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to investigate Trump's conduct marks a major turning point in the almost year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin.

Mr. Trump's morning tweets included what seemed like a jab at former FBI Director Robert Mueller, the new Special Counsel for the Russian Federation probe, as he said the investigation was being "led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

The piece added that Trump had received assurances from then-FBI Director James Comey that he wasn't personally being investigated, but that changed for the president "shortly after Comey's firing".

Presumably, the president is asking why his campaign is being investigated for possible collusion with Russian Federation in their interference on the 2016 presidential election, but Clinton is not being investigated. Comey testified under oath earlier in June that Trump asked him during a one-on-one discussion to drop the probe.
