Trump says he's 'under investigation' over Comey firing

Special counsel Robert Mueller should be given a chance in the Russian Federation investigation but it's likely he won't find anything, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson said Friday.

As a rule, there are a lot of career options for former FBI Directors and Attorneys General.

Mueller, a former FBI director who was named special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation after Comey was sacked, is investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Kremlin officials in a bid to tilt the 2016 election in his favour.

In response to the statement, former US Attorney Preet Bharara, whom Trump fired in March, tweeted early Friday morning that "Americans should also exercise caution before accepting as true lies about firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director & defamation of a war hero special counsel", references to criticisms Trump has levied against Mueller and James Comey.

US President Donald Trump announced Friday he is under investigation in connection with a probe into alleged Russian election meddling that is gnawing away at his administration - and gathering pace. Recent news reports have suggested Trump sought all three officials' help in pressuring FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

Discussing the story on MSNBC Friday morning, Scarborough accused Bannon of leaking that story to the press and later accused Reince Preibus of similarly leaking damaging information about Kushner.

The source spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump's young presidency has been battered by allegations under investigation both by Congress and the FBI that Russian Federation interfered to sway the November election in his favour.


Though some in the White House have preached caution, fearing a repeat of the firestorm over Mr Comey's sacking, many in Mr Trump's orbit, including his son Donald Jr and adviser Newt Gingrich, have deemed Mr Mueller biased and worthy of dismissal.

"Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great".

Rosenstein took over the investigation after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself because he was a Trump campaign surrogate. "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!"

Trump is an avid user of Twitter, with over 32 million followers on his personal account and more than 18 million people on the official presidential account.

Ditching derogatory rhetoric about the Washington "swamp", Trump rallied in support of his fellow politicians and called on the country to pull together.

"It's not a witch hunt", Thune told MSNBC in an interview on Thursday. Nor did he deny he has entered the miniscule ranks of sitting presidents who have become the subject of a criminal investigation.

His comments follow revelations that special counsel Robert Mueller is examining whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey. He has questioned why investigators don't dig into the links between the Democrats and the Russian government, including his general election opponent, Hillary Clinton.
