Trump Just Confirmed He Is Under Investigation for Obstruction of Justice in Furious Tweet

Wow —

This morning, Donald Trump fired out an obviously furious tweet in which he admitted he is currently under investigation for firing FBI Director, James Comey.

The tweet reads, “I am being investigated for the firing of the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt”

This tweet has caused some confusion, because Special Counsel and former FBI Director, Robert Mueller, is currently heading up the investigation, and had no part in the firing of James Comey.

A tweet just minutes before that one was an apparent attempt to preemptively save face, “Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great. Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!”

According to CNN:

It wasn’t immediately clear to whom Trump was referring, though the man who wrote a memo recommending Comey’s firing, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, was also the official who approved the appointment of a special counsel to look into Russian election meddling.
Trump’s tweet Friday reflected the first official confirmation that he is being investigated by the special counsel for the reasons he fired Comey last month. Trump conceded in an interview after the episode that he was thinking about the Russia controversy when he made that decision.
It was not clear if Trump’s comment was based on news reports or if the White House had been given official notice.
