Trump confirms he's under investigation for firing former FBI Director James Comey

Trump did not respond to shouted questions from the media as he was leaving the White House lawns to board Marine One for the Joint Andres Air Force Base for his day-long trip to Florida.

Rosenstein is the Justice Department official who was put in charge of any matters relating to Russian collusion or interference with the 2016 USA presidential elections, after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself in March. "Witch Hunt", the 71-year-old tweeted at 9:07 a.m.

That meeting focused on coordinating the special counsel's probe with the intelligence committee's separate investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, coordination aimed at decreasing any conflicts between the two.

In another tweet, Mr Trump said: "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians, ' nobody has been able to show any proof". Recent news reports have suggested Trump sought all three officials' help in pressuring FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

In a statement, Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein said she is growing increasingly concerned that the president will attempt to fire not only Mueller, but also Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein who appointed Mueller.

The White House referred to Trump's outside legal counsel when asked if the president was specifically referring to Rosenstein. Trump initially used that memo along with a recommendation from Sessions to justify firing Comey.

After meeting with Mueller, Burr and Warner said that their committee would step back from probing President Trump for possible obstruction of justice and would instead focus their investigation on Russia's efforts to disrupt and influence the election. The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations. The order by the general counsel for his transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government. The transition, a nonprofit structurally separate from the Trump campaign, continues to operate with a small staff.

Through a spokesman, Trump's personal attorney, Marc Kasowitz, blasted the Post's report, though he stopped short of denying it. "Why is [it] that Hillary Clintons [sic] family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"

They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story.

He continued by saying: "Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm.massive regulation cuts, 36 new legislative bills signed, great new S.C.Justice, and Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works!"
