Trump lashes out at Russian Federation probe revelation

United States President, Donald Trump, has acknowledged he is under investigation in the inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in past year presidential election held in his country.

President Donald Trump is being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller for possible obstruction of justice, United States media reports say.

Sanders, for example, was asked if Trump still felt "vindicated" by the extraordinary congressional testimony last week by James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director whose firing by Trump has contributed to questions about whether the president obstructed justice.

The focus on Rosenstein sharpened Friday because the President attacked the deputy attorney general in a tweet, blaming him for what he terms a "witch hunt".

The Washington Post reported late Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller is seeking interviews with three Trump administration officials who weren't involved in Trump's campaign.

Rosenstein now has such authority because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself on March 2 after revelations of previously undisclosed meetings with Russia's ambassador to Washington while he was a Trump campaign advisor.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment for this story, but said "that the Special Counsel's Office has undertaken stringent controls to prohibit unauthorized disclosures and will deal severely with any member who engages in this conduct".

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said she was "increasingly concerned" that Trump will fire both Mueller and Rosenstein.

Citing a memo from the general counsel's office of Trump's transition team, the Times said members were given the order on Thursday for any information involving Russian Federation or Ukraine in the latest sign of the investigation's expanding reach.

The White House has denied it put pressure on Mr Comey.

There are 3 ways President Trump can sack Robert Mueller. An official of Trump's transition confirmed the lawyer's internal order, which was sent Thursday.

Vice President Mike Pence has hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.

"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"

Mr. Trump also tweeted on Friday morning: "After seven months of investigations and committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians, ' nobody has been able to show any proof".

Rosenstein wrote a memo in May to Trump strongly criticizing FBI Director James Comey's performance.

Trump on Thursday tweeted that the investigation was "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"
