Donald Trump Takes To Twitter To Angrily Respond To Obstruction Of Justice Charges

On Wednesday, a Washington Post story revealed that President Trump is being investigated by Special Counsel for the Russia investigation Robert Mueller for possible obstruction of justice.

These charges aren’t new, but it is notable for sources to confirm to WaPo that these charges are seriously being investigated. Fired FBI Director James Comey indicated that Mueller would apparently be taking on the obstruction of justice charges while testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee recently.

Trump is accused of obstruction of justice on account of allegedly seeking to end the investigation into his associate Michael Flynn. The president is also alleged to have tried to pressure top intel officials to publicly deny that there’s any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian efforts to sway the 2016 presidential election.

In addition, the firing of James Comey is alleged to have been an incident of obstruction of justice, since Comey is literally the guy who was helping lead the investigation into the Trump campaign.

Trump has now responded to the newest refresher of the charges against him, and it’s in unsurprising Trump-ian fashion.

On Twitter this Thursday, Trump wrote, “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.”

There’s no indication that the obstruction of justice charges against Trump are phony; he literally fired the FBI Director.

For now, we’ll just have to wait for Mueller.
