President Trump Under Investigation for Obstruction of Justice

HeadlineJun 15, 2017
H03 mueller

President Trump is now under investigation for possible obstruction of justice. The New York Times also reports special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is looking into whether President Trump’s associates, including Jared Kushner, have committed any financial crimes, including money laundering aimed at hiding possible financial payoffs that might have been part of a cooperation between Trump associates and Russian officials. Special counsel Robert Mueller will be questioning top intelligence officials, including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency head Michael Rogers.

This morning, Trump slammed the investigation, tweeting, “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.” Members of the Trump administration and the Republican National Committee have been attacking Mueller in recent days, in an apparent effort to discredit his investigation. This comes as the Senate voted 97 to 2 Wednesday to approve a new round of sanctions against Russia over alleged interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
