A news story from the Washington Post reports that the special council investigating any possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia has taken a new turn. The investigation now involves a look into whether or not President Donald Trump attempted to obstruct justice. According to the Post, the investigation began after former FBI Director James Comey was fired.

Trump had received private assurances from then-FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation. Officials say that changed shortly after Comey’s firing.

Five people briefed on the interview requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said that Daniel Coats, the current director of national intelligence, Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, and Rogers’s recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller’s investigators as early as this week. The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy, and it is unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI.
