Officials say that they are now investigating President Donald Trump and are looking for evidence of a “possible obstruction of justice.” However, what justice these authorities think was obstructed remains rather unclear, as this “he said, she said” argument seems to be running in circles.
The special counsel which formed to investigate the rumors of the alleged Trump-Russia collusion during the election will now be investigating Trump for this so-called obstruction of justice inspired by the firing of former FBI director James Comey.
While Comey assured Trump that he was not personally under investigation, officials say that’s all changed now that Comey is gone.
Comey himself testified that he “believes” he was fired over the Trump-Russia investigation, and not for his mishandling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal. He let a criminal go free, isn’t that a good reason for getting fired? Apparently to Comey, its not good enough. Daniel Coats, the national intelligence director, has also claimed that Trump “asked” if he could get Comey to “back off” its investigation of Mike Flynn. Later, he would tell authorities he never felt pressured, however.
According to recent reports, five anonymous individuals have reportedly confirmed that Daniel Coats, the NSA’s Mike Rogers and others are going to be interviewed Mueller’s investigators soon. “The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy, and it is unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI,” sources say.
Reports say that the investigators are also looking for “financial crimes” committed by Trump’s associates.
In other words, it’s beginning to look as though they are grasping at straws to try to take Trump down.
Some say this investigation into Trump’s obstruction of justice began just days after Comey was fired and new FBI director Mueller plans on pursuing and interviewing several more “witnesses.”
President Trump has taken to Twitter to say that this so-called investigation is nothing more than a “witch hunt, “ and that it all is stemming from the “phony collusion” accusations. He tweeted, “They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice.”
