More US Voters Trust Comey Over Trump After US Senate Hearing

Sessions explained to the Senate Intelligence Committee that Comey's concern pertained to the protocol though which the Department of Justice communicated with the White House.

Trump's Twitter response followed days of intensifying criticism of Mueller from some conservatives who have charged the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director and his team with political bias and have claimed his relationship to Comey and an earlier meeting with Trump amount to conflicts of interest.

Trump said he was "being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

In another sign the investigation is expanding, lawyers for the Trump transition team issued a memo Thursday instructing those who worked for the transition to preserve documents in anticipation that investigators will request those materials for the probe into Russian interference into last year's presidential election. We have not seen a single allegation which actually accuses Trump or his administration of doing something illegal.

Mueller, himself a widely respected former head of the FBI, has now taken up the angle of possible efforts by Trump to obstruct justice in the investigation, the Post said.

Yet Trump's angry tweets on Friday underscored the near-impossible challenge his advisers and legal team have in trying to get him to avoid weighing in on an active probe.

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Trump's private attorney, Marc Kasowitz, immediately condemned the Post report.

The top Democrat on that committee, Dianne Feinstein of California, said, "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".

The latest media reports say the obstruction of justice investigation began just days after President Trump fired former FBI director James Comey on 9 May. "Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations".

After the firestorm caused by Comey's firing, Rosenstein appointed Mueller, Comey's predecessor as FBI director, to take over the DOJ Russia investigation. When asked about a letter he wrote recommending firing Comey, Rosenstein said that Mueller could be looking into the decision-making process for the firing - and he was therefore "not at liberty to talk about that now". But soon after the abrupt termination, Trump told NBC News that he had been going to fire Comey regardless of any recommendations.

ABC News reported Friday that Rosenstein has privately acknowledged he may need to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation but has yet to seek a formal opinion on the matter. The order also covers separate inquiries into several key Trump associates including former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, campaign adviser Paul Manafort, foreign policy aide Carter Page and outside adviser Roger Stone.

Mr Trump said, according to a United States official quoted by the New York Times. It goes without saying that discovering any money flows between Trump campaign officials or advisers and Russian government-linked individuals or institutions would be explosive.
