Potus admits he's under probe over Russian Federation ties

Trump tweeted on Friday: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"
It was unclear whether his tweet about being under investigation was based on direct knowledge or new media reports that suggest Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey. Who is Trump referring to? Kasowitz did not respond to a query.
On May 17 the Department of Justice appointed Mueller as special counsel to head up the Russian Federation investigation.
U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, said she is becoming "increasingly concerned" that Trump will terminate both Mueller and Rosenstein.
A representative from President Donald Trump's legal team said Trump is not under investigation, despite the President tweeting "I am being investigated" this week.
The White House had confirmed that Mr Mueller was among the candidates Mr Trump interviewed to replace Mr Comey.
Comey, whom Trump fired in early May, said in Senate testimony earlier this month that the President spoke to him privately on February 14 and asked him to drop the bureau's investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's alleged ties to Russian Federation.
The Trump administration initially said Mr Rosenstein's letter was the reason the President fired Mr Comey on May 9, but Mr Trump later said he did so because of the "Russia thing". "Witch Hunt", the President tweeted.
The Senate Intelligence Committee said it will defer to Mueller on obstruction of justice charges.
"After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians, ' nobody has been able to show any proof. Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!" Sekulow added that Trump is "very effective" with his use of social media.
Trump was continuing the attacks he made on Twitter on Thursday about the reportedly widening Federal Bureau of Investigation probe, criticizing the "very bad and conflicted people" that instigated it and asking why Hillary Clinton isn't the subject of scrutiny.
"Why is that Hillary Clinton's family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?" he asked.
Still, Trump seemed to be raising the question of whether Rosenstein might have to recuse himself from the investigation - something Rosenstein discussed privately with colleagues, ABC News reported yesterday.
Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, also has retained an attorney to represent him. The lawyer is Richard Cullen of Richmond, Virginia.
ABC said Rosenstein told Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand she would have authority over the probe if he were to step aside. Rosenstein could eventually be questioned by Mueller about his memo on Comey and what motivated Trump to ask him to write it.

He had likened the appointment of the special counsel with the "single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history". Politico said Rosenstein's comments caught many in Washington by surprise, partly because he didn't specify the news reports .
The President began his day by saying there was "zero proof" of any links between Russian Federation and members of his campaign. Trump , however, referred to the Post's reporting as a "phony" story in a tweet Thursday.
