President Donald Trump hit back against allegations that he obstructed justice by attempting to stymie the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

The president’s tweet follows the leak of dozens of questions that special counsel Robert Mueller wishes to discuss with Trump in his probe. Mueller also reportedly threatened to subpoena the president during  a March meeting with Trump’s legal team.

The questions span the gamut from inquiring as to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election to the circumstances surrounding the firing of former FBI director James Comey. Trump has been accused of possibly obstructing of justice when he allegedly asked Comey in a private oval office meeting to drop a criminal probe into then national security advisor Mike Flynn.
