Donald Trump tweets his frustration with Russia investigation

Trump advisers describe the president as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy.

Donald Trump already admitted that he is under investigation, Sekulow's interview of someone who works for Trump trying to clean up the mess that the President caused.

Trump did not identify "the man" but appeared to be questioning the integrity of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Justice Department's No. 2 official who appointed Mueller on May 17, supervises the probe and wrote a memo to Trump critical of Comey that preceded Comey's firing.

Trump, who has denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation, has frequently lashed out about the allegations, which have overshadowed his administration's efforts to overhaul the healthcare system, cut taxes and boost jobs.

"CNN had not confirmed the Washington Post report, but then Trump came out and said quote 'I am being investigated.' The confusion-Is this not frustrating for you as an attorney to have a client that is sharing information with the world that is not accurate?"

Sekulow said that the tweet is not a verification that Trump is under investigation, but rather a response to the Washington Post article that referenced anonymous officials who claimed Trump was under investigation.

A member of President Donald Trump's legal team said Sunday that Trump is not under investigation by the special counsel, an assessment at odds with a Washington Post report last week and seemingly with a tweet by Trump himself on Friday.

"It was 141 characters, there's a limitation on Twitter, as we all know, and the president has a very effective utilization of social media", Sekulow said.

On CNN's State of the Union, Mr Sekulow sought to account for any confusion over Mr Trump's apparently precise words by saying the president could not "in a tweet, include all that is there". "He can not in a Twitter statement include all of that in there, but "The Washington Post" statement came out that morning", he said.

They said previous presidents would make sure to have the White House counsel's office and their personal lawyers carefully review any comments about such an investigation before making them.

"Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic and jobs numbers are great".

The president suggested on Twitter that he may have taped conversations. It urged the public to treat quotes from anonymous sources with scepticism.

Trump, who hired his own lawyer last month regarding the probe, kept up his criticism of the investigation. They have tried to highlight the positive reviews that he received Wednesday when he made a statesman-like appearance in the White House to address the nation after Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., was shot during a congressional baseball practice.

Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, has said publicly she fears Mr Trump will fire Mr Mueller and Mr Rosenstein, only five weeks after firing James Comey.
