Special counsel investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice

Share

A spokesman for President Donald Trump's lawyer says a Washington Post report that the president is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice came from an "inexcusable and illegal" FBI leak.

An event reportedly of particular interest to Mr Mueller is an exchange on March 22, when Mr Coats told associates that Mr Trump had asked him to intervene with Mr Comey to get him to back off the president's former national security adviser Mike Flynn as part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into the Russian Federation affair.

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.

The letter said the investigation will also probe Comey's testimony that Loretta Lynch, as President Barack Obama's attorney general, had directed him to describe an FBI probe into Hillary Clinton's email practices as merely a "matter" and to avoid calling it an investigation.

In a pivotal shift in the investigation that has riveted Americans like no other for decades, senior intelligence officials have agreed to be interviewed by investigators working for Mr Muller, according to The Washington Post.

Reuters said that several legal experts said Mr Comey's testimony last week that Mr Trump expected loyalty and had told him he hoped he could drop an investigation of a former top aide could bolster obstruction of justice allegations against the President. After a day of speculation, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, "While the president has the right to, he has no intention to do so".

The NSA said in a statement that the "NSA will fully cooperate with the special counsel".

A spokesman for Mr Mueller declined to comment.

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mr Mueller last month, testified on Tuesday that he had seen no evidence of good cause to sack him.

It is the most significant sign that Mueller's investigation is extending beyond questions of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump is not the only one under scrutiny, Barrett said: Investigators are also looking into the finances of Trump associates. The two sides have been discussing "deconfliction" - or how the Senate investigation and the federal probe will share information and not step on each others' toes. Reporter Tony Mauro noted the addition of Dreeben may signal that "Mueller may be seeking advice on complex areas of criminal law, including what constitutes obstruction of justice".
