A Friday tweet from President Trump appeared to confirm reports that he is being investigated for dismissing former FBI Director James Comey in May.
Trump tweeted Friday morning, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.”

You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people! #MAGA

Trump’s tweet marked the first official confirmation that he is under investigation by the special counsel for the reasons he terminated Comey.
The mainstream media has begun feasting on the the president’s recent claims regarding the investigation and the unsubstantiated stories surrounding it, asserting that he has gone on a “Twitter tirade” and that he is “lashing out” at the media.
Media outlets across the United States and throughout the world will be focused on the president’s revelation throughout the day, and into the foreseeable future.
