Trump confirms in tweet that he is under investigation

It quoted five people briefed on the requests and said those who have agreed to be interviewed are Daniel Coats, the director of national intelligence, Admiral Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency, and his recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett.

Coats will also meet with members of the Senate intelligence committee Thursday, one week after his tense grilling by the panel, according to a committee source.

Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey in May after Rosenstein authored a memo advising him to do so.

Trump's tweets come after the top lawyer for his transition team warned the organization's officials to preserve all records and other materials related to the Russian Federation probe. Grassley's office said the letter is in response to a recent letter from Feinstein requesting that the committee seek details from senior Federal Bureau of Investigation leadership about Comey's interactions with President Donald Trump before he was sacked.

Not for the first time, Trump gives a false impression of what's really going on.

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

Trump's tweet comes less than a day after a unusual statement from a senior official in his administration. "I think it would be an absolute disaster if the president were to move forward and fire the special counsel", Sen.

It wasn't immediately clear to whom Trump was referring to in his comment "the man who told me to fire" Comey. The President has stressed he was not under investigation, and has taken to Twitter to dismiss the entire investigation as a hoax.

At Least 65 People Missing in London Fire
Flowers and missing persons posters were taped to the gates of the church, while bags of donations were piled outside the door. Chancellor Philip Hammond said the cladding, which has been blamed for spreading the fire, is banned in Britain.

Trump's decision to go after Rosenstein sparked widespread speculation in Washington that he may dismiss the deputy attorney general in yet another attempt to get past the Russian Federation investigation, although the likely effect of such a step would be to ignite a new political firestorm and claims that the President is abusing his power and mounting a coverup.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller, hinted broadly that the special counsel investigation could be looking at Trump during a House committee hearing on Tuesday. On Monday, a Trump friend said the president was considering dismissing Mueller although the White House said later he had no plans to do so.

The stated focus has been Russia's alleged efforts to tilt last November's presidential election Trump's way, and whether the winner's campaign was involved in any way.

Mueller met with Sens.

A slight majority, 51 percent, said they watched all of Comey's June 8 testimony in the US Senate Intelligence Committee.

The Washington Post, citing unidentified officials, reported on Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating the Republican president for possible obstruction of justice.

Comey's comments were referring to conversations he had with the president before he was sacked, and before Mr. Trump made remarks including that he was thinking of the "made-up" story about ties to Russian Federation when he fired Comey, according to CBS News.
