Trump Tweets His Frustration With Russia Investigation

Mueller meets with Senate Russia investigators

That appeared to be the first public confirmation that Trump is being investigated for obstruction of justice - and was a digital salvo aimed at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a memo criticizing Comey. The source spoke on condition of anonymity.

The debate was then on as to whether or not Trump should be charged with obstruction of justice.

"And second, if the president thinks he can fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and replace him with someone who will shut down the investigation, he is in for a rude awakening".

In a series of statements on Twitter on Thursday, Mr Trump repeated his claim that Mr Mueller's investigation is a "WITCH HUNT" based on the "phony" premise of possible collusion between Russian Federation and a cadre of Trump campaign associates.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is now overseeing the investigation into President Trump's campaign, but there's been speculation he could step down. The Washington Post reported this week that Mueller is investigating whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice when he suggested Comey drop an FBI investigation into Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, as well as when he fired Comey.

Trump is under pressure to reveal whether he has any tape recordings of private conversations with Comey. Rep.

Richard Cullen is a former Virginia attorney general and a former U.S. attorney for the eastern district of Virginia. Cohen has received a subpoena from one of the congressional committees looking into the Russian Federation issue.

But Trump is likely to be disappointed if he is ultimately seeking to stop the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI director, according to Cramer and members of Congress.

Since Microsoft purchased Minecraft in 2014 , many had wondered how the Xbox creator might handle the game on other consoles . We've reached out to Sony for comment, and until we hear from them officially, we should give them the benefit of the doubt.

The Republican leader also lashed out at the Justice Department's No. 2, the man tasked with organizing the probe. "Her attitude toward the investigation is likely to be a bit different from Rosenstein's, more informed by the structure of presidential authority and less by unwritten norms of prosecutorial independence".

As Trump still struggles to acknowledge, the US intelligence community is fully convinced that Russian Federation carried out an attack on our democracy.

Some commentators, however, said Trump could be referring to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The White House initially said the memo was critical to the decision, but Mr Trump later later said it was irrelevant, because he'd made up his mind beforehand. Mueller served as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the Bush and Obama administrations from 2001 to 2013.

Since President Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in last year's presidential election, the overwhelming Democratic narrative has been that Trump committed some wrongdoing in his victory.

Moscow has denied any interference.

Friday's tweets have taken other aides across the White House by surprise.

The department would not comment on the record on whether Trump, who has repeatedly complained about leaks on the case, requested the statement.
