New York Times sues FBI to get notes of Comey-Trump talks

If Mueller is investigating Trump's firing of Comey as possible obstruction of justice, he might want to learn about Trump's interactions with Rosenstein, the Justice Department official who wrote the memo criticizing Comey's performance before his firing.

The special counsel is following two major lines of investigation, said one USA official familiar with the rough outlines of Mueller's probe who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to insist that despite months of investigating, no proof has emerged that he colluded with Russian Federation to tilt the 2016 presidential election in his favour.

So, now, Trump tweets it is a witch hunt that Rosenstein is investigating him for firing Comey.

The White House confirmed that Mueller was among the candidates Trump interviewed to replace Comey.

Mueller is investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion by Trump campaign associates with the Russians, but there has been no indication that Mueller told Trump to fire Comey.

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Marc Kasowitz, Trump's personal attorney handling Russian Federation probe matters, didn't respond to a request for comment.

The viral response has been pretty incredible, as it's already been retweeted almost 29k times and liked 64k times. By now, pretty much everyone is in agreement that Gal Gadot has knocked it out of the park as Wonder Woman .

The US president's attack, which appears to target Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general whois leading the government investigation, reflects Mr Trump's mounting frustration with the unrelenting controversy that has consumed his early presidency.

Trump adviser Newt Gingrich said on ABC's "This Week" that the tweet Friday "didn't help him". Schiff said he wants the White House to acknowledge the tapes or make clear there are no tapes and "it was an idle threat".

The transition official said the organization has also separately asked the General Services Administration to preserve records from the Trump transition that were transferred to its facilities after the inauguration.

Mueller continues to hire a team of lawyers, and with FBI investigators is gathering information that is widely expected to lead to a formal investigation into whether President Trump attempted to interfere in the investigation.

But Mr Rosenstein, too, may ultimately have to end his oversight, given his role in Mr Trump's decision to fire Mr Comey. Allies have even floated the idea that Mueller may be fired. "Witch Hunt", Trump said in a Twitter message. He has already been subpoenaed by the House of Representatives intelligence committee.

Comey used his his three-hour testimony before the Senate intelligence committee last week to launch a blistering takedown of Trump, calling him a liar no less than five times.

She also echoed concern that the president will try to fire Mueller and Rosenstein.
