President Trump said Thursday investigators should look into ties between Hillary Clinton's family and Democrats, instead of his own "non-dealings" with the Kremlin.

"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russia are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?" Trump said on his Twitter account Thursday afternoon.

"Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, 'bleached' emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?" Trump said in a second tweet.

The president's tweets come after it was reported Wednesday that Robert Mueller, special counsel for the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, is now investigating Trump for obstruction of justice.

Trump criticized the news earlier Thursday, calling the investigation a "witch hunt" and arguing his political opponents are making up allegations in order to undermine and bring down his presidency.

In a briefing with reporters Thursday, deputy press secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump's tweets were likely prompted by "some developments" in the Russia probe.

Trump has long maintained the while the media has been focused on the investigation into his campaign's ties to Russian officials, news outlets are missing the "big story" — the Obama administration's "unmasking and surveillance" of Americans.
