Angry Trump decries being target of Russian Federation probe

USA president Donald Trump is lashing out after a report he is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice, dismissing as "phoney" the idea his campaign colluded with any Russian effort to sway the 2016 U.S. election.

"He's driving this", the White House official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss West Wing internal deliberations.

The second, the source continued, is whether if any potential offences were committed, Trump or others attempted to cover them up or obstruct the investigation into them.

Putin echoed Trump's criticism of Comey, saying it was "very strange" a former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief leaked details of his conversations with the United States president to the media through a friend.

While most Republicans in Congress said little about Mr. Trump's criticism of Mueller, other supporters echoed the President's concerns.

But as the legal rope has tightened, Trump s allies have gone on the offensive, questioning the credibility of the special investigator Mueller, a respected former Federal Bureau of Investigation director who served under Republican president George W. Bush.

President Donald Trump in the Rose Garden of the White House in June. The questions included whether he had confidence in Rosenstein, whether he plans to fire special counsel Robert Mueller and how he knows he's under investigation by the FBI.

The President's tweet sparked immediate speculation about the future of the official, Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a memo recommending Comey be ousted and also later approved the appointment of a special counsel - Robert Mueller - to lead the Russian Federation probe.

Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, has not said what exactly prompted him to appoint Mr. Mueller, his decision came after The New York Times published details about an Oval Office meeting Mr. Comey had with the president at the White House in February.

The widened Russian Federation probe could have far-reaching repercussions for Trump's presidency, transforming his closest aides into witnesses and sucking yet more political oxygen out of the West Wing.

An aide to Vice President Mike Pence revealed on Thursday that he was hiring Richard Cullen-a veteran of the Iran-Contra investigation, Watergate and the 2000 vote recount in Florida-as a private lawyer.

President Donald Trump complained in a furious Friday morning tweet that he was being investigated for firing former FBI Director James Comey and seemed to accuse the deputy attorney general of overseeing a "witch hunt" against him.

"You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

"I can go around them", the tweet read.

"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?" he asked. "Nice", Trump wrote in his first tweet.
