Yesterday, after US President Donald Trump denied obstruction of justice allegations made against him within the investigation into his relationship with Russia and for firing Comey, today (Friday), Trump is painting a different picture. Trump confirmed on his Twitter account that an investigation is being conducted against him for firing former FBI Director James Comey, most likely under the suspicion that this was an obstruction of justice.
“I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI director,” Trump tweeted, most likely referring to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed the special prosecutor to investigate Trump’s suspected ties with Russia. “Witch hunt,” Trump added.

Just yesterday, JOL reported about Trump denying allegations that an investigation is being conducted against him. “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,” Trump wrote.
