On Twitter, Trump decries obstruction probe related to “phony” Russia story – The Denver Post – Colorado News

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Thursday to offer his first comments on news that he is being examined for possible obstruction of justice – an investigation he dismissed as part of the “phony” accusations of collusion between his campaign and Russia last year.

“They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story,” Trump said in a tweet shortly before 7 a.m.

“Nice,” he added.

An hour later, Trump fired off another tweet, saying: “You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people!”

He did not name the “bad and conflicted people.”

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice, according to officials.
