Trump Tweet Storm Confirms Obstruction Investigation

Wednesday evening the Washington Post reported President Donald Trump is currently under investigation by Special Counsel Mueller for obstruction of justice. Reports say that the obstruction investigation began just days after President Trump fired former FBI director James Comey.

In response to the report, Trump supporters argued the story was written via anonymous sources, so it could not be trusted. An attempt to discredit the article itself will no longer be an approach supporters can take. The President himself has confirmed that he is indeed under investigation.

In true Trump form, he unleashed a tweet storm that has spanned the days following the release of the Washington Post story. He has attacked Mueller, Democrats, and his standby favorite Hillary Clinton. He has characterized the investigation as a witch hunt.

But let’s let the President speak for himself. As the White House Press staff always say, “the tweet speaks for itself.”

He starts his tweet rant yesterday with this

Followed by this one, apparently, he is unaware of the actual witch hunt in American history when women were drowned and burned at the stake, or McCarthyism perhaps, or even birtherism.

When all else fails just point at the “nasty woman.”

Yesterday’s tweets were apparently not sufficient. It wasn’t enough that Trump seemed to confirm he is under investigation, he needed to be sure to erase any doubt, and so we have this series this morning

I Imagine the news media does not mind his tweets, his lawyers and GOP lawmakers on the other hand…

This is Trump getting back on message

And finally, in case anyone had any doubt. Donald Trump confirms, he is indeed under investigation.

It is unclear to whom he is referring in this tweet. He may be referring to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whose memo fronted the excuse for Trump’s firing of James Comey. That particular justification did not last long, as Trump himself told Lester Holt on national television that he fired Comey because of the Russia investigation and that he was going to fire him with or without a recommendation from the Justice Department. Rosenstein has stood by the contents of his memo though he has said that the memo was “not a statement of reasons to justify a for-cause termination.”
