#USPolitics : Is part of incredible and dangerous witch hunt the tale about Obstruction Of Justice?

President Donald Trump responded on Thursday to a new report indicating he is under investigation for obstruction of justice. 

Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey.

The FBI's special counsel, Robert Mueller, is looking into whether Trump tried to quell the bureau's investigation into his presidential campaign's ties to Russia, according to The Washington Post

Trump called the report "phony" and said the allegations amounted to "the single greatest witch hunt in American political history."

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— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2017

You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 15, 2017

His comments echo ones his lawyers made Wednesday.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal," a spokesman for Trump's legal team, Mark Corallo, said.

Mueller took over the Russia probe in May after Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey. Comey testified in front of the Senate last week, claiming that Trump asked him for loyalty and urged him to drop the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Trump both called Comey a liar and said the testimony "vindicated" him against any allegations of wrongdoing.
