Trump bashes probes into his 'non-dealings' with Russian Federation

Posted June 16, 2017

Since his shocking upset win over Hillary Clinton last November, multiple well-respected news outlets, as well as various government agencies, have released information that links Trump and his administration to Russian Federation.

Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel behind the investigation of former President Bill Clinton that led to his impeachment, appeared on CNN's "New Day" on Thursday morning to discuss the investigations into President Donald Trump.

Not long after Donald Trump announced that he was running for president he was hit with allegations of being linked back to Russian Federation.

After the report, Trump's lawyer accused the Federal Bureau of Investigation of an "inexcusable and illegal" leak of information.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday that the special counsel overseeing the investigation of Russia's influence in the 2016 presidential election is examining whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice.

As expected, Trump and his team have denied any wrongdoing, with the president repeatedly referring to the allegations against him as a "witch hunt".

Comey told the Senate hearing that he believed he was dismissed by Trump because he did not stop the FBI's investigation into Flynn.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and campaign advisor Paul Manafort have also been implicated.

Trump criticized Clinton for her use of a private server throughout his campaign, painting her as someone who thought of herself as above the law.

But Comey would reopen the investigation in the final weeks of the presidential campaign after the discovery of hundreds of emails from Clinton on the computer of her aide Huma Abedin.
