On Wednesday evening, the Washington Post published a bombshell report saying Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice.

"The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said," the Post said.

Trump has repeatedly insisted that ousted FBI Director James Comey assured him that he was not personally under investigation in the Russia probe. However, not long after firing Comey,

"After Comey’s testimony in which he acknowledged telling Trump that he was not under investigation, Trump tweeted that he felt 'total and complete vindication.' It is unclear if McCabe, Comey’s successor, has informed Trump of the change in the scope of the probe," the Post said.
