  Trump confirms he's under investigation, appears to attack own deputy attorney general for being part of 'witch hunt'

Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May, and that firing is now reportedly part of an investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice as president. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who recommended Comey's dismissal, is overseeing the broader investigation, which is being led by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Both the House and the Senate also have open investigations into whether Trump's presidential campaign colluded with Russia to meddle in last year's election.

"After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians,' nobody has been able to show any proof. Sad!," Trump tweeted Friday morning.

The president also praised his own use of social media, tweeting about how he is able to bypass traditional news media.

"The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media - over 100 million people! I can go around them," Trump tweeted.
