Trump being probed for possible obstruction of justice

In a pivotal shift in the investigation that has riveted Americans like no other in decades, senior intelligence officials have agreed to be interviewed by investigators working for the special counsel, Robert Mueller, the Post said.
The transition official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss post-election decisions publicly.
The revelation marks a significant twist in the investigation, which until recently had not included a personal examination of Trump himself.
Coats told associates that Trump had asked him if he could intervene with Comey to get the bureau to back off its focus on former national security adviser Michael Flynn in its Russian Federation probe, according to officials. Comey also testified he had told Trump he was not under investigation.

A spokesman for the DNI declined to comment to CNN. The president might want to consider finding an actual expert in criminal law to represent him; this investigation is extensive, serious and possibly career-ending for a growing list of figures, which now certainly includes the president.
Mr Trump previously claimed he was the victim of a "witch hunt" in May after Mr Mueller, a former FBI director, was appointed to lead an investigation into his campaign's alleged ties to Russian Federation.
Comey testified Trump was not under investigation by the FBI as of May 9, but that he couldn't know if that was still the case after May 9.
Mueller's investigation appeared to be reaching a broadening circle of current and former officials. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Tuesday that Trump had "no intention" of firing Mueller "at this time". But as the legal rope has tightened, his allies have gone on the offensive, questioning the credibility of the special investigator Mueller, a respected former Federal Bureau of Investigation director who served under Republican president George W. Bush. However, the White House yesterday said the president had no plans to do so.
In a survey of registered voters, 45 percent said they trust Comey to tell the truth, while 32 percent said they trust Trump. It is unclear if McCabe, Comey's successor, has informed Trump of the change in the scope of the probe.
