Trump tweets about Clinton after news of obstruction of justice investigation

16 June, 2017, 06:12 | Author: Abel Ruiz

Ken Starr, the former independent counsel charged with investigating President Bill Clinton, told CNN's New Day Thursday that there is not enough evidence to bring an obstruction of justice case against President Donald Trump.

Before that, Trump seemed to question why Clinton wasn't being investigated for ties to Russia-despite the fact that USA intelligence agencies concluded that the country interfered in the election with the goal of helping Trump win. On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that Mueller's investigation included a query into whether the President had obstructed justice.

The Post, quoting several anonymous sources, said the probe has expanded after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

Borrowing some presidential campaign rhetoric, Trump called Hillary Clinton crooked and said she "destroyed phones" with a hammer and "bleached emails".

"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".

"You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!" He also raised questions about Clinton's family and, quote - "Dems dealing with Russian Federation". "He did not dismiss the investigation or curtail the investigation".

Once Comey was sacked, the Department of Justice appointed Mueller as special counsel to act as an independent investigator.

Comey also testified he had told Trump he was not under investigation.

Trump was alluding to the former secretary of state's handling of her private email server, an issue that dogged the Democratic nominee's presidential campaign since before it officially began.

Despite winning the popular vote by several million, Clinton lost the election thanks to narrow defeats in the swing states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
