To summarise - 150 days in, President Trump is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice in the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into his campaign's possible collusion with Russia's meddling in the 2016 election to damage his democratic opponent.

The special counsel overseeing the probe into Russia's alleged meddling in the USA election is looking at whether President Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice, The Washington Post reported Wednesday, citing unnamed officials.

Former FBI director James Comey assured him three times that he was not.

The stated focus has been Russia's alleged efforts to tilt last November's presidential election Trump's way, and whether the winner's campaign was involved in any way.

Recent reports have said Trump also requested help from Coats and Rogers to pressure Comey to end the investigation into Flynn's activities.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Mr. Corallo said.

President Donald Trump is telling his Twitter followers that they are witnessing the "single greatest WITCH HUNT in American history".

Eight hours later, after a busy day meeting with governors and witnessing the formal investiture of his pick for the Supreme Court, Trump returned to the topic again in a pair of tweets suggesting that Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent in the election, should be under investigation instead of him.

The NSA said in a statement that the "NSA will fully cooperate with the special counsel".

"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".

Comey told Congress last week he believes he was sacked by Trump to undermine the agency's Russian Federation probe.

"Yeah", Entous said, "that's what we were told by our sources that basically Mueller, when he came in, basically absorbed a lot of investigations that were out there that had been started, looking at different aspects of the case".

After Comey's firing, the administration gave differing reasons for his dismissal.

Five people briefed on the interview requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told the Washington Post that the head of the National Security Agency, Mike Rogers, the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats and Richard Ledgett, a former deputy to Rogers, agreed to be interviewed by investigators working for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III this week. He declined to say whether he thought Trump sought to obstruct justice, saying that would be up to Mueller to sort out.

The White House has denied any collusion, and Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win.

"Trump had received private assurances from then-FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation".
