Following reports that U.S. Department of Justice special counsel will be examining Trump for obstructing justice disrupted in the probe into Russian involvement in the US election campaign, US President Donald Trump turned to Twitter today (Thursday) to attack former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. In a series of tweets, Trump asked why Hillary Clinton's family and the Democratic party were not being investigated for dealings with Russia, while his "non-dealings" were.

Shortly afterward, Trump wrote: "Crooked H destroyed phones with hammer, 'bleached' emails, and had husband meet with AG days before she was cleared- and they talk about obstruction?"

According to reports in the Washington Post yesterday, Mueller summoned three former and current senior intelligence officials to discuss whether Trump had made attempts to disrupt the investigation.

Trump responded to the reports, once again turning to Twitter to express his frustrations. "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," he wrote. An hour later, he tweeted that the accusations were part of a "witch hunt" against him.
