Trump says he's under FBI investigation

His own advisers leaked the damaging anecdote to Associated Press over the weekend.

Trump has hinted that he may have taped conversations with Comey - in which the ex-FBI chief says the president pressured him for his loyalty and on the Russian Federation investigation while also urging him to drop a probe into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

The Democratic National Committee called on Rosenstein to recuse himself from the Russian Federation matter, but it said authority over the investigation should be given to Mueller and not another Trump appointee.

Trump's young presidency has been battered by allegations - under investigation both by Congress and the FBI - that Russian Federation interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favour, in possible collusion with Trump's campaign team. The Washington Post or one of President Trump's attorneys?

"That tweet was in response to a Washington Post story that ran with five unnamed sources", Mr Sekulow told CNN.

President Donald Trump's transition team has been ordered to preserve materials related to ongoing investigations into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, the New York Times reported on Friday, as Trump again assailed the probes.

After those reports, Trump himself had once again resorted to Twitter, where he posted an enigmatic message on Thursday in which he seemed to acknowledge that he was under investigation. Sekulow added that Trump is "very effective" with his use of social media.

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Trump's outside attorney, Marc Kasowitz, slammed the Post's reporting. He can not in a Twitter statement include all of that in there.

He was apparently referring to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a memo to denounce Comey and subsequently appointed Mueller (pictured below) to continue the probe.

He then insisted that "being investigated by the same department" which told him to remove Comey is "not constitutional". Senator Marco Rubio, who lost the Republican primary election to Trump, called for a "full and credible investigation".

They include a claim he had been wiretapped by the Obama administration, his Oval Office remarks to Russian diplomats about the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, his private musings about the possibility of firing the Russia special counsel, his claim that there are recordings of White House conversations, and his comments about a "military" deportation operation. Describing the action against him as "witch-hunts", President Trump did not give any other details.

In some cases, Simon said, the feds will issue a "target letter" following a grand jury subpoena, usually when a defense lawyer is trying to decide whether to let a client testify. It urged the public to treat quotes from anonymous sources with scepticism.

If "the man" in the tweet is, in fact, Rosenstein - as one person who recently spoke to Trump told CNN - Trump's anger marks a whopper of a turnaround on the same man he and other senior White House officials praised effusively just weeks ago.

The Trump International Hotel, which opened last fall just down the street from the White House, took in revenue of about $20 million. Last month, Rosenstein sent a memo to Trump raising concerns over FBI Director James Comey - concerns the White House then cited as a central reason for Comey's firing.

The Twitter attacks came as Vice-President Mike Pence hired a personal lawyer to represent him in the intensifying investigation. A close Trump associate said this week the president was considering firing Mueller, although the White House later denied it.
