Trump confirms he is under investigation

US President Donald Trump has confirmed that he is under investigation as part of an inquiry in to alleged Russian interference in last year’s election.

In a tweet he also appeared to accuse Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein of a witch hunt.

“I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt,” he tweeted.

Rosenstein wrote a memo to the White House which was used to justify the firing of the ex-FBI chief.

The president has repeatedly complained about the inquiry, which has cast a shadow over his first five months in office.
