Trump Confirms Being Investigated for Firing Ex-FBI Director Comey

The NSA said in a statement that it will "fully cooperate with the special counsel" and declined to comment further.

And it was Rosenstein who appointed Robert Mueller as the special counsel to lead that investigation after Comey was sacked.

Tensions escalated with Mueller's latest moves.

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.

Published reports have indicated that Mueller is looking into whether Trump tried to obstruct justice.

Rosenstein appointed Mueller, Comey's predecessor and friend, to direct the investigation last month. The paper cited unidentified officials familiar with the matter. That happened after Sessions disclosed previously unreported contacts with the Russian ambassador during the 2016 presidential campaign.

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.

Separately, Coats testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a closed session Thursday that lasted for three-and-a-half hours. The newspaper reported people close to the investigation said Kushner was: "being investigated because of the extent and nature of his interactions with the Russians". "We worked through all of that", Burr told reporters.


"There has been no notification from the special counsel's office that the president is under investigation", he told on CBS' "Face the Nation" programme.

"We'll be meeting with him in the next few days". Adam Schiff, a Democrat from California, said.

On Thursday, it was reported that President Trump himself was under investigation for possible obstruction of justice.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Mark Carallo told the Washington Post". The Washington Post report suggests that scrutiny has been folded into the special counsel office and includes Kushner's business dealings, though it offers no details on what that scrutiny is.

Democrats have tweaked the Trump administration as news about the Russian Federation probes and fallout over former FBI Director James Comey's firing last month have shadowed the White House's agenda the past two weeks. Flynn was forced to resign for misleading administration officials about his contacts with Russia's USA ambassador. Oh, that and Trump is now personally under investigation for obstruction of justice.

Carr spokesman Peter Carr says the investigatory panel has 'stringent controls to prohibit unauthorized disclosures that deal severely with any member who engages in this conduct'. Rosenstein in a memo to Trump raised concerns over FBI Director James Comey.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Trump's tweets are sending a message "that he believes the rule of law doesn't apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired".

Comey told the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee that the Trump administration had lied and defamed him and the Federal Bureau of Investigation after the President dismissed him on May 9. Trump has disputed both claims, saying flatly that he never asked Comey to drop the Flynn probe. "That's it. Simple explanation".
