Trump confirms he is under investigation in Russia inquiry

President Donald Trump, not one to shy away from using Twitter, certainly isn't hesitating to tweet his feelings about news reports alleging that he's under federal investigation for obstruction of justice.

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson said Friday that he believes special counsel Robert Mueller should be given a chance to do his job, but added that "there's nothing to find" in relation to the Donald Trump's campaign and Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Administration officials and the president's advisers are anxious Trump's tweets and public statements about the Russian Federation probe will trigger additional damaging leaks, but they said he can not stop talking about the investigation, reported Politico.

It wasn't clear whether the president was basing his tweet on direct knowledge that he is under investigation, or on reports this week that special counsel Robert Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey last month amid the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.

Donald Trump took to Twitter Friday to insist that despite months of investigating, no proof has emerged that he colluded with Russian Federation to tilt the 2016 presidential election in his favor.

Citing unnamed sources, ABC reported Rosenstein told Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand she would have authority over the probe if he were to step aside. Trump later asserted that he had already made the decision himself to fire Comey before Rosenstein's memo.

Comey testified before a Senate panel last week that Trump spoke privately with him several times, including by telephone and at White House meetings.

Trump hadn't publicly admitted he was personally under investigation until now. Or, perhaps, Trump was trying to put pressure on Rosenstein to recuse himself from the investigation.


Comey said he typed notes describing the conversations because he was anxious Trump "might lie" later about them.

The U.S. television network ABC, citing unnamed sources, reported that Rosenstein had informed Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand that he may have to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigations as well, because of his memo to Trump about Comey.

"It's becoming clear to me that the president has embarked on an effort to undermine anyone with the ability to bring any misdeeds to light, be that Congress, the media or the Justice Department".

A day later, Mr Rosenstein appointed Mr Mueller - who was at the helm of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the September 11 attacks - as special counsel. "Witch Hunt", President Trump tweeted on Friday morning.

In recent days, there have been major rumors that the president was thinking about firing Mueller.

People zeroed into the words "I am being investigated" and wondered who he's talking about. The White House has denied any collusion.

Mr Trump, who is due to give a speech in Miami on Friday where he is expected to announce a shift in USA policy towards Cuba, also boasted about his deployment of social media, despite warnings by legal experts that his tweets may be used against him in the ongoing investigation.
