The Washington Examiner reports:
President Trump confirmed Friday morning he is under investigation over his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey. “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt,” he said on his Twitter account.
News surfaced this week that Trump is being investigated for possible obstruction of justice after firing Comey last month. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller is the special counsel investigating the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia and overall Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

There was no official confirmation that Trump was being investigated until he said "I am being investigated."
