Putin compares James Comey to Edward Snowden

In his testimony on June 8, Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee that he believed Trump had fired him over his role as lead of the FBI investigation into Russian interference in the USA election and Trump campaign associates' possible ties to Russia.

That investigation, which is being run by special counsel Robert Mueller, has expanded to include not just potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Kremlin, but potential obstruction of justice by Trump for his decision to fire Comey. "Witch Hunt", the president wrote.

President Donald Trump, in a furious Friday morning message, said he is being investigated for his role in firing former FBI Director James Comey and seemed to accuse the deputy attorney general of overseeing a "witch hunt" against him.

A new investigation by the Senate Judiciary Committee adds to the many other inquiries underway, notably special counsel Robert Mueller's expanding Russian Federation probe, which now appears to include questions about whether Trump tried to obstruct justice.

The Post referred to anonymous sources who had been briefed on requests made by Mueller's investigators.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Corallo told CNN.

Comey's name has been floated around as a possible candidate in politics, but it is unlikely that the 56-year-old attorney will go down that route.

On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Comey had presented no evidence to prove that Moscow meddled in the US election, adding that Washington had tried to influence Russian elections "year after year", he said.

President Trump's personal lawyer has retained a Washington, D.C. -based lawyer to represent him in the various government probes connected to Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

Recent reports have said Trump also requested help from Coats and Rogers to pressure Comey to end the investigation into Flynn's activities. As Trump still struggles to acknowledge, the US intelligence community is fully convinced that Russian Federation carried out an attack on our democracy. He testified that he leaked information about the notes through a friend to the Times to increase pressure for the appointment of a special prosecutor after he concluded Trump's administration "defamed" him and the Federal Bureau of Investigation after his May 9 firing.

Trump has been growing increasingly agitated with Rosenstein over the last day or two in private White House meetings and in conversations with friends, multiple people have told CNN. Here's why: The New York Times reports that people around Trump believe he could still try to remove Mueller, if he comes to "believe the investigation has been compromised".

Mr Comey, who had been leading one of several Russian Federation inquiries, testified to Congress last week that Mr Trump had pressured him to drop the inquiry into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Since appointed as special counsel last month, Mueller has not publicly discussed his work.

Comey also testified that he had told Trump he was not under investigation. The special counsel has witness testimony and physical evidence to weigh when evaluating if Trump obstructed justice.

The former director of the Department of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, is scheduled to appear June 21 in an open session before the House of Representatives' intelligence committee, which is looking into Russian activity during the 2016 US election campaign.
