Deputy AG: 'Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations'

Donald Trump is furious that he is being investigated for sacking FBI chief James Comey Donald Trump is furious that he is being investigated for sacking FBI chief James Comey

Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller special counsel in the Russian Federation investigation last month, testified to lawmakers Tuesday that he has seen no evidence of good cause to fire Mueller and that he is confident that Mueller will have "the full independence he needs" to investigate thoroughly.

And if President Trump were to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and then got Special Counsel Mueller fired, I believe Congress would begin impeachment proceedings.

In another tweet earlier Friday, Trump writes, "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians, ' nobody has been able to show any proof".

In a message that journalists and political observers say looks like a shocking attack by a sitting president on his own Justice Department, President Donald Trump appeared to take aim at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in a Friday morning tweet.

As evidence, Sekulow said that Trump has not been notified of any investigation. Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller on May 17 as special counsel to head the inquiry into the Russian Federation matter. His aides scrambled in the wake of that tweet to make clear the President was simply saying he had read the reports that he was under investigation but had not been told it separately. "Witch Hunt", he wrote on Twitter.

The president complained the probe is unfair and wondered why his defeated Democratic opponent was not getting the same scrutiny.

Now, Mr Trump has suggested that he is indeed being investigated.


The Associated Press said Mr Mueller was among the candidates Mr Trump interviewed to replace Mr Comey.

The transition order came the same day that Vice President Mike Pence's confirmed that he had hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.

Mr Mueller's investigation appeared to be reaching a broadening circle of current and former officials.

While a sitting president is unlikely to face criminal prosecution, obstruction of justice could form the basis for impeachment. The source said investigators have sought information from Richard Ledgett, who recently retired as deputy NSA director and, the source said, had written a memo documenting an attempt from Trump urging Rogers to tamp down on the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. But he had said last week he felt vindicated by Comey's testimony on June 8 that he was not the subject of investigation while Comey was heading the agency. However, Trump later told NBC News' Lester Holt that he had already chose to fire Comey before that memo was written.

Mueller's inquiry includes Kushner among other Trump's associates - former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and a campaign policy adviser Carter Page, The Washington Post claimed citing unnamed sources on Thursday.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Oh, I was going to fire regardless of recommendation.

The committee sent a bipartisan letter this month to White House counsel Don McGahn seeking an answer by this Friday.
