16 June, 2017, 04:00 | Author: Elaine Woods
The special counsel appointed to investigate Russian influence in the 2016 United States presidential campaign is now examining whether Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice, according to a report.
The three officials the Post says Mueller is interviewing are Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the recently retired deputy NSA director.
Kasowitz issued a statement saying the Federal Bureau of Investigation was behind the Post story and called the leak "outrageous, inexcusable and illegal".
The president previously said that fired FBI Director James Comey assured him in private conversation that he was not under investigation.
Mr Comey told Congress last week he believed he was sacked by Mr Trump to undermine the agency's Russian Federation probe.
President Trump is reportedly being investigated for possible obstruction of justice.
"While the president has the right to, he has no intention to do so", Sarah Sanders, a White House spokesman said.
"I took it as a very disturbing thing, very concerning, but that's a conclusion I'm sure the special counsel will work towards, to try and understand what the intention was there, and whether that's an offense", Comey testified last week.
