And, sure enough, a week after Trump and his legal team spiked footballs and celebrated that Trump wasn't a target of the Russian Federation probe, The Washington Post reported that Trump is indeed being investigated by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for obstruction of justice.
Late on Thursday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who is overseeing the Russian Federation investigation issued a statement saying the Justice Department does not confirm or deny the kind of allegations in news reports about the probe, and encouraging the public to be skeptical of them.
It was not immediately clear what prompted the release of that statement by Rosenstein, whether it was in response to recent stories that suggested the President was under investigation for obstruction of justice, or some other reason.
"Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations", Rosenstein said. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations", Rosenstein's full statement read. Thus, we've endured months of speculation about the likelihood of Trump's impeachment, a rumor that reached fever pitch when recently-fired Federal Bureau of Investigation head James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee a week ago.
In a tweet earlier Friday, Trump said nobody has been able to show any proof about his collusion with Moscow after months of investigations.

United States President, Donald Trump, has acknowledged he is under investigation in the inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in a year ago presidential election held in his country.
The "man" President Trump is referring to is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a letter recommending Comey be fired.
Trump also lashed out at the media, on a day that aides hoped would be focused on his decision to undo some of Barack Obama's detente with Cuba.
Trump and his supporters have repeatedly complained about leaked reports on the progress of Mueller's investigation, many of which have appeared in either the Post or The New York Times.
When Rosenstein appeared before the House Appropriations Committee this week, he stated that Comey's firing could very well become a factor for Mueller's investigation. Last month, news surfaced that Kushner may have discussed creating a secret communications channel between the Trump transition team and the Kremlin with Kislyak.
The widened Russian Federation probe could have far-reaching repercussions for Trump's presidency, transforming his closest aides into witnesses and sucking yet more political oxygen out of the West Wing.
