President Donald Trump took to Twitter Thursday to question why he was being investigated on Russia while Hillary Clinton was not.

Here are Trump's posts:

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating Trump for obstruction of justice for firing FBI Director James Comey.

Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that the president pressured him to "let go" of the agency's investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's alleged Moscow ties in a private Oval Office meeting in February.

A spokesman for Trump's personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, ripped the Post's report Wednesday: "The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal."

President Trump said in May that he fired Comey in part because of his disclosures last year about the FBI's investigation into Clinton's private email server.

Comey told reporters last July that Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, was "extremely careless" in how she used the private email account to conduct business during her four years as secretary of state.

However, he would not recommend charges against her.

Republicans slammed Comey's decision, arguing enough evidence existed to make a criminal case.

Mueller, also a former FBI director, was named special counsel shortly after Comey's dismissal.

In addition, U.S. intelligence officials concluded last year that Russia meddled in the presidential election, seeking to help Trump defeat Clinton.

Besides the FBI and the intelligence committee, other probes into possible Trump campaign ties with Moscow are being conducted by the Justice Department, Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee.
