Rosenstein was acting, because Attorney General Jeff Sessions had recused himself from acting in the Russia investigation after it was revealed he had held two meetings with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak before the November 8, 2016 election.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and adviser, as part of the probe into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to officials familiar with the matter.

Trump did not identify "the man" but appeared to be questioning the integrity of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Justice Department's No. 2 official who appointed Mueller on May 17, supervises the probe and wrote a memo to Trump critical of Comey that preceded Comey's firing.

The probe Mueller "marks a major turning point in the almost year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin", The Washington Post reported yesterday.

Trump fired Comey last month, saying "this Russian Federation thing" was on his mind when he made the decision to oust the nation's top law enforcement official while Comey was leading the FBI's probe into Russia's meddling. The newspaper noted Mueller had requested interviews with CIA Director Dan Coats, National Security Agency chief Michael Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the former NSA deputy director.

Eight hours later, after a busy day meeting with governors and witnessing the formal investiture of his pick for the Supreme Court, Trump returned to the topic again in a pair of tweets suggesting that Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent in the election, should be under investigation instead of him.

Wednesday's Washington Post article caused a firestorm in the White House on Thursday, particularly because President Trump had been trying so hard to prove that he was not a focus of the Russian Federation investigation.

Several White House officials and Trump associates insisted on anonymity in order to discuss the president's views of the unfolding investigation.

He pretends there has already been a finding that there was no collusion between anyone involved in his presidential campaign and the Russian attempt to meddle in our election.

Comey testified that not everyone on his Federal Bureau of Investigation team agreed he should.


A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment on the tweet.

Trump used the word "phony" twice in one tweet when responding to a Washington Post report that he was now in the sights of a special counsel investigating Russian collusion.

The Washington Post first reported the Cullen hire.

Mr Trump lashed out on Twitter early yesterday.

"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", Trump told Comey, the Times reported.

NBC is reaching out to the White House.

Trump has told associates he has the legal authority to fire Mueller.

Trump, believes that the mainstream media has not been fair to him and outlets like The New York Times, The Washington Post and CNN is against him.

Comey testified last week that he also felt pressured to drop the Flynn probe. He's increasingly focused his anger at both Rosenstein and Mueller, according to advisers and confidants, viewing the two as part of a biased effort to undermine his presidency.
