"The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Marc Corallo, a spokesman for Trump lawyer Marc Kasowitz told CBS News Wednesday night. Sad!" he wrote. "Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great.
Trump on Thursday fired of a series of tweets describing the Russian Federation investigation as a "witch hunt" and he inquired to as to why Hillary Clinton's alleged dealings with Russian Federation were not being investigated.
The Justice Department's investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election is looking at Kushner's multiple roles in the Trump administration, including the Trump campaign's 2016 data analytics operation; his relationship with former national security adviser Michael Flynn; and Kushner's own contacts with Russians, according to United States officials briefed on the probe. Unfortunately, the same can not be said for the president and those who surround 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". Citing a memo from the general counsel's office of Trump's transition team, the Times said members were given the order on Thursday for any information involving Russian Federation or Ukraine in the latest sign of the investigation's expanding reach.
Well, until now. WaPo recently reported that special counsel Robert Mueller is now actively investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice, specifically regarding Trump's firing of then-FBI director James Comey.
The tweets are the latest in a week of angry social media responses by the President over a report by the Washington Post that Mr Mueller was looking into whether he had obstructed justice.
That would matter if Trump decides to fire Mueller.
On Wednesday, Vice President Mike Pence took what he later described as a "very routine" step of hiring outside counsel to represent him. White House statements about Director Comey's firing because of the FBI's lack of confidence in him are plain, flat-out lies.

Ditching derogatory rhetoric about the Washington "swamp", Trump rallied in support of his fellow politicians and called on the country to pull together.
The transition official said the organization has also separately asked the General Services Administration to preserve records from the Trump transition that were transferred to its facilities after Trump's inauguration.
But his tweets virtually ensure that the political focus swings back to the Russian Federation scandal. 'The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations'.
'I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!
Trump has told associates he has the legal authority to fire Mueller.
Trump also trained his fire on one-time rival Hillary Clinton.
US intelligence agencies concluded in a report issued in January that Russian Federation interfered in the presidential race to try to help Trump win, in part by hacking and releasing emails damaging to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
"Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, "bleached" emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?" He is planning to interview two top USA intelligence officials about whether Trump sought their help to get the Federal Bureau of Investigation to back off a related probe of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, according to three people familiar with the inquiry.
While President Trump denied all the allegations levied on him, Comey revealed that the documented memos were a testament to his claims, a portion of which was published by the The New York Times, with the hope of a new counsel being appointed.
