Trump calls reports of obstruction of justice ‘phony’

On Thursday, President Trump denounced via Twitter a Washington Post report about an investigation into his possible obstruction of justice. After Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, the Justice Department appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel for the investigation. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich lashed out against Mueller for the new investigation into Trump’s possible obstruction of justice.
