Donald Trump lashes out over probe into possible obstruction of justice

The tweet may be a reference to Mr Rosenstein, who previously wrote a memo supporting Mr Comey's firing and is now assisting in the Justice Department's investigation.

"You are witnessing the single greatest witch hunt in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!" he continued in another tweet. Sad!" he wrote. "Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great. Recent news reports have suggested Trump sought all three officials' help in pressuring FBI Director James Comey to drop his investigation into former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn.

Former FBI head Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel a day after a report stemming from the notes was published.

USA national intelligence director Daniel Coats, National Security Agency chief Mike Rogers, and Richard Ledgett, who recently quit as NSA deputy director, have agreed to speak to investigators, the Post reported.

It is possible, however, that the sources for the Post report could have been those interviewed as part of the investigation, not the investigators themselves.

Trump has said he is "100 per cent" willing to testify under oath on Comey meetings and tell the FBI Special Consul Robert Muller that he never asked FBI to stop investigating.

Trump demonstrated Friday morning that the Russian Federation probe continues to consume his attention, tweeting a stream of messages decrying the controversy.

Moscow has denied United States intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in last year's election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Mr Trump's favour.

Earlier this week, the investigation led by Mueller appeared to move closer to Trump. Included was Comey's account of a February 14 meeting in the Oval Office in which he claims that Trump said of the FBI's investigation of Michael Flynn, "I hope you can let this go". Trump reportedly was at odds with Sessions' decision to recuse himself.

A spokesman for Trump's private attorney declined to respond to details of the widening probe Wednesday, instead slamming the leaked information as "outrageous, inexcusable and illegal".

"Mr. Trump's apparent reference to Mr. Rosenstein, who oversees the Russian Federation investigation because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from it, came just hours after an oddly worded statement from Mr. Rosenstein complaining about leaks in the case". The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy, and it is unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI.

Trump's tweets are the latest - and most direct - attacks on the leader of an investigation that he insists is unnecessary and distracting. There have been some eyebrows raised, as Mueller's staffed his team with multiple donors to Hillary Clinton.

Last week, Comey told Congress he believes he was sacked by Trump to undermine the agency's Russian Federation probe.
