CNN Is Suing The FBI To Release James Comey's Memos

That will include, according to the Washington Post, putting under oath senior intelligence officials whose help Trump reportedly asked for in an attempt to get Comey to back off the Russian Federation probe (and who refused to answer direct questions on the subject in a Senate hearing). It cited five people briefed on the requests by Mueller's team who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Late on Thursday, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein - who is overseeing the Russian Federation investigation - issued a statement saying the Justice Department does not confirm or deny the kind of allegations in news reports about the probe, and encouraging the public to be skeptical of them.

That's critical given that Comey's sworn testimony regarding the pressure put on him by Trump to leave off an investigation into deposed national security adviser Michael Flynn runs directly counter to Trump's assertions about their conversations.

The three officials the Post says Mueller is interviewing are Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the recently retired deputy NSA director.

"Yeah", Entous said, "that's what we were told by our sources that basically Mueller, when he came in, basically absorbed a lot of investigations that were out there that had been started, looking at different aspects of the case".

"They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story", Trump tweeted.

And now, he has just thrown the biggest curve ball of all as he put out a fresh post claiming his account was hacked and deleted the original Instagram post.

It was not clear if Trump's comment was based on news reports or if the White House had been given official notice. Controversy erupted when President Trump's friend, Christopher Ruddy, said that President Trump thought about firing Mueller, as reported by the New York Times. "Witch Hunt ". In just one tweet, Trump revealed a whole lot of information.

Also under the microscope: evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, including possible money laundering. "I can go around them", the tweet read.

Gingrich, the former House speaker whose wife is seeking Senate approval to become the USA ambassador to the Vatican, continued to defend Trump Thursday morning.

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

The probe into obstruction began before Mueller was appointed.

It is unclear to whom Trump is referring: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote memos supportive of ousted FBI Director James Comey's firing.
