Special counsel Mueller investigating Jared Kushner's finances

"Witch Hunt", Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to his May 9 dismissal of James Comey.

Rosenstein apparently broached the topic during a meeting with Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, who is third in command at the DOJ behind Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

A new report says that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man in charge of the Justice Department's part of the Russian election meddling and collusion probes, is now admitting privately that he may have to recuse himself.

Trump, who hired his own lawyer last month to represent him regarding probes by the special counsel and congressional committees, continued his harsh criticism of the investigations in series of tweets on Friday. Mueller also has expansive powers to investigate any matters that develop from his initial investigation. Trump also acknowledged, for the first time publicly, that he is under federal investigation.

Rasmussen said Friday its daily presidential tracking poll that 50% of likely USA voters approve of Trump's job performance, while the other 50% disapprove.

I think he's furious. "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office", Feinstein said in a statement Friday.

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer says Trump is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential race, adding that the President has not received any notification that he is being investigated.

In another development, members of Trump's transition team that served him after he was elected in November until he took office in January have been ordered to preserve materials related to the Russian Federation matter, the New York Times reported.

On Thursday afternoon, Trump sent two tweets attacking his former opponent. The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations.

Mueller's move came after Comey said in his June 8 testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee that he intentionally handed over his memos, detailing each conversation he had with the president, over to Mueller. Recent news reports have suggested Trump sought all three officials' help in pressuring FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into Mr Flynn.

Vice President Mike Pence is next in line to lead the USA if President Donald Trump is impeached. The transition, a nonprofit structurally separate from the Trump campaign, continues to operate with a small staff. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations". The memo asks for preservation of electronic communications and data, telephone logs, audio recordings, videos, calendars and other items.

It comes after Mr Trump appeared to admit for the first time on Friday that he is being investigated, as he lashed out at a top Justice Department official probing links between Russian Federation and the President's election campaign.

On Friday, the President made extraordinary claims against Clinton and her family for their own alleged dealings with Russian Federation, claiming smashed a phone with a hammer and "bleached" emails to cover their tracks.

"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". And as Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) declared in a tweet Thursday, "If Trump fired Mueller (he'd also have to fire Dep AG Rosenstein), it would be an 11 on the Richter scale of #obstructionofjustice".
