Trump tweets about Clinton after news of obstruction of justice investigation

Trump interviewed Mueller for FBI job day before he was tapped for special counsel

He also brought up Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and questioned whether her actions amounted to obstruction of justice.

He also questioned why she was not investigated for obstruction previous year.

"A follow-up tweet from the president said "Crooked H" destroyed phones, "'bleached' emails", and Bill Clinton met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch days before Hillary was "cleared" of any wrongdoing in the scandal involving her private email server.

According to reports in the Washington Post yesterday, Mueller summoned three former and current senior intelligence officials to discuss whether Trump had made attempts to disrupt the investigation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller. That is, he did not dismiss the investigation or curtail the investigation.

Obstruction of justice is a serious charge, and one which led to impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon after Watergate.

UK leader May strikes tentative deal with N Ireland party
The DUP has refused to give details in public of what concessions it might seek, and did not respond to a request for comment. SIEGEL: George Parker, political editor of the Financial Times in London, thanks for talking with us today.

The House and Senate Intelligence Committees are investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 campaign, including possible collusion between Trump associates and Moscow.

Together, the requests from Mueller suggest new scrutiny on whether the president tried to influence the Russian Federation investigation through conversations he had with Comey, whom he ultimately fired, or with other officials.

The reports, released previous year, say Clinton destroyed her used phones on at least two occasions while serving as secretary of state, also that she used the "BleachBit' software to delete some of her mails". Not to mention that Trump and several of his surrogates have complained that people can't seem to let the election go.

But Comey would reopen the investigation in the final weeks of the presidential campaign after the discovery of hundreds of emails from Clinton on the computer of her aide Huma Abedin.

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.
