US: President Trump May Be Under Investigation for Possible Obstruction of Justice

 On President Trump's birthday, the Washington Post reported that special counsel Robert Mueller may be investing whether the president attempted to obstruct justice over the course of the FBI's Russian interference investigation.
According to five anonymous sources, Mueller's team is in the process of interviewing senior intelligence officials, including director of national intelligence Daniel Coats, National Security Agency head Mike Rogers, and former NSA deputy Richard Ledgett. Though former FBI director James Comey had previously expressed to President Trump that the latter wasn't under investigation, that apparently changed after Comey's surprise firing.

Though Coats, Rogers, and Ledgett didn't work on the president's campaign, which had been the prior focus of the larger investigation, the New York Times reports that Mueller is now interested in whether President Trump actively tried to impede Comey's investigation of former national security advisor Michael Flynn.
Additionally, the Times shares that Mueller had reportedly also been looking into money laundering within the president's team and other associates, particularly in relation to payments in exchange for cooperation with Russian officials.

A spokesperson for President Trump's personal attorney Marc Kasowitz said in response to the Post's report: "The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal."
