Trump Slams 'Phony Story' on Obstruction: 'Witch Hunt'

Trump Slams 'Phony Story' on Obstruction: 'Witch Hunt'

By    |   Thursday, 15 June 2017 07:10 AM

President Donald Trump responded Thursday morning to reports that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating him for possible obstruction of justice over Russia, calling it a new angle on a "phony story" and "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," he wrote in a post to his personal Twitter account. "Nice."

He followed up later with another post.

Citing multiple unnamed sources, The Washington Post was the first media outlet to report Wednesday that Mueller's probe had expanded from possible Russian collusion after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, whose agency had been looking at the Russia issue, to possible obstruction by the president.
