The president also insisted that the Russian Federation investigation was a "witch hunt" before turning his ire on Clinton in two tweets Thursday afternoon.

He also brought up Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server and questioned whether her actions amounted to obstruction of justice.

"It's too soon to tell, [but] from what I have seen, no", Starr, whose years-long investigation of former President Bill Clinton ended in his 1998 impeachment, told CNN's "New Day" co-host Alisyn Camerota.

"Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, "bleached" emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?" he said in a second tweet. "Nice", he wrote in reaction to a Washington Post report alleging he is under investigation for potential obstruction of justice. Trump reportedly considered firing Mueller as special counsel, but was talked out of it by aides who anxious about the consequences of taking such an action.

Not stopping there, Donald Trump went back on the attack in a follow-up tweet, once against smearing Hillary Clinton in the process.

Once Comey was sacked, the Department of Justice appointed Mueller as special counsel to act as an independent investigator.

Trump has been reacting to reports that he is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice in the Russian Federation investigation. Not to mention that Trump and several of his surrogates have complained that people can't seem to let the election go.

While the White House has insisted on referring all requests related to the ongoing investigations to Trump's team of lawyers working on the case, Trump has continued to tweet about the investigation in recent days.
