Trump Confirms He Is Under Investigation And Blames His Own Justice Department

President Donald Trump seemed to confirm for the first time Friday that he’s being investigated for possible obstruction of justice and appeared to blame the Justice Department’s number two official for the probe.

Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special prosecutor in an investigation of alleged collusion between Trump associates and Russia in the 2016 election. Rosenstein made the appointment after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation for failing to disclose during his confirmation hearings that he met with Russian officials before Trump took office.

1. What sucks is that my immediate feeling is..."They had better find something good..."

"...otherwise there won't be any charges."
But if this were a Democratic politician, just the mention of an investigation would mean 100% guilt...and would probably blow through in no time at all.
I sure hope our country can heal from this Trump wound, and continue back on the path President Obama put us on.

2. Not only blames DOJ but blames #2 for firing Comey which led to the investigation

So he never accepts responsibility for anything, not even for firing Comey

Some Commander-in-Chief

Get some crying towels

4. Being inside the White House now must be like being...

inside the Führerbunker with the Red Army closing in.

I can see Trump, eyes bulging and sweating through his orange pancake makeup, as he excoriates everyone around him for being disloyal.
