Just 145 days into his presidency, Donald J. Trump is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice, according to a report Wednesday night from The Washington Post.
The Post cited five sources in the report, which came on the night of Trump's 71st birthday.
Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the probe into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election, is expected to interview two current White House senior officials as soon as this week regarding the possible obstruction of justice, the Post said.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, may have been asked by Trump to halt an investigate that centered on fired National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's ties to Russia.
Former Westport resident James Comey, whom Trump fired as FBI director last month, testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that Trump had asked him to "let it go," regarding the Flynn investigation.
A spokesman for Trump's personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, lashed out at The Washington Post report. but did not speak to its accuracy. “The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal," he said.
