The nice things Trump and others said about Rod Rosenstein

Trump has harped on the fact that former FBI Director James Comey told him he wasn't under investigation, but recent reports have found his alleged actions, meetings and calls with Comey have reportedly led special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate the president for possible obstruction of justice.

As the investigation expands, that raises the possibility that Rosenstein may recuse himself from that role, since he wrote the memo justifying Comey's firing.

Accusations of obstruction arose last month when Trump fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Trump took to Twitter Friday morning to lash out at the months-long investigation into Russian Federation meddling.

Meanwhile, the White House said on Thursday that it would have no comment about the revelation, with deputy Press Secretary Sarah Sanders simply referring all questions to the President's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz.

Reports that Trump allegedly asked two intelligence chiefs to publicly deny any cooperation between his campaign and Russian Federation are also said to be part of the investigation.

"The message the president is sending through his tweets is that he believes the rule of law doesn't' apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired", she said. "Witch Hunt", Trump tweeted on Friday morning.

Today, in another series of furious tweets, it seems Trump has inadvertently confirmed this news.

US President Donald Trump has lashed out at Hillary Clinton and the media after a report he was under investigation for possible obstruction of justice. Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller on May 17 as special counsel to head the inquiry into the Russian Federation matter.

But Rosenstein is not now heading the FBI's probe into the Trump campaign's possible collusion with a Russian campaign that US intelligence officials have said was seeking to tilt the outcome of the 2016 election in Trump's favor.

Mr Trump's tweet sparked the derision of social media users.

He had likened the appointment of the special counsel with the "single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history".

Mr Trump denied those allegations, saying he would be more than willing to offer his own testimony under oath.

The inquiries appear to be part of a fact-finding mission and it would ultimately be up to Mueller to decide whether there is enough evidence to recommend pursuing charges on any part of the investigation.
