The investigation into ties between President Trump's campaign and the Russian government has now turned to investigating Trump himself for obstruction of justice, the Washington Post reported Wednesday.

...The Post, citing unnamed sources, said the investigation into the president's own conduct began shortly after Trump fired Comey on May 9. That prompted Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to appoint Mueller — himself a former FBI director — as special counsel the following week.
