Angry Trump decries being target of Russian Federation probe

President Donald Trump is being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller for possible obstruction of justice, USA media reports say.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Kasowitz said via a spokesman.

Naturally, rumors are circulating on social media about this statement being prompted by the possibility of a Trump-related video - related to the Golden Showers dossier (natch) - surfacing.

President Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russian Federation, describing the ongoing inquiry as a "witch hunt". Several top intelligence officials have agreed to be interviewed by Mueller's team, according to reports in both The Washington Post and New York Times.

President Donald Trump has lashed out at the investigators driving the Russian Federation investigation as "very bad and conflicted people", responding angrily to reports that the special counsel is looking into whether Trump obstructed justice.

Reuters cited a source which confirmed the Post report, adding that an examination of possible obstruction of justice charges was "unavoidable" after former FBI Director James Comey told Congress he believed he was sacked by Trump to undermine the agency's Russian Federation investigation.

In recent years, the extremists have become more brazen, attacking sites frequented by Westerners in the capital of Bamako . Anti-terrorism forces from several countries arrived at the scene soon after the attack and surrounded the hotel.

Trump did not directly address the allegations that he is being probed for possibly obstructing justice - a potentially impeachable offence.

Comey testified last week that he also felt pressured to drop the Flynn probe.

The widened Russian Federation probe could have far-reaching repercussions for Trump's presidency, transforming his closest aides into witnesses and sucking yet more political oxygen out of the West Wing.

Baker's views didn't change, even as Comey told Trump a second and third time that he was not being investigated.

Who is going to be interviewed?

The three names being mentioned in U.S. media are Daniel Coats, the director of national intelligence, Mike Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency, and Richard Ledgett, until recently Mr Rogers' deputy.
