Trump insists there's no proof he colluded with Russian Federation

Trump s digital volley appeared to be trained at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who recommended the firing last month of James Comey - an nearly unprecedented move that could yet imperil Trump s presidency.

Trump sent more tweets early Friday morning attacking the investigation as "phony".

"I've talked with Director Mueller about this", Rosenstein told AP.

He did not mention any names but his message comes a day after he took to Twitter to slam a media report indicating that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating Trump himself for obstruction of justice related to the Russian Federation probe.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) warned Friday that President Donald Trump's tweets were making her "increasingly concerned" that he intends to oust the two officials overseeing the sprawling federal investigation into Russia's election interference: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and the special counsel he appointed, Robert Mueller.

The president is reportedly under investigation for obstruction after firing FBI director James Comey, and sources told Politico he's privately fuming about special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

Trump on Thursday lashed out at the investigators driving the Russian Federation investigation as "very bad and conflicted people", responding angrily to reports that the special counsel is looking into whether Trump obstructed justice.

Trump has denied any involvement with the Russians during the campaign and has called media reports of collusion a "hoax" and a "phony story".

Trump also seemed to confirm reports in the Washington Post and other publications that Mueller's investigation has expanded to include allegations that he attempted to obstruct the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the election and his campaign associates' possible collusion with Russians. "FBI director" James Comey in a tweet Friday morning, once again calling the investigation a "witch hunt".

Yesterday, Trump referred to the possible obstruction of justice investigation as the "single greatest witch hunt in American political history".

Press Secretary Sean Spicer recently confirmed President Trump's tweets are in fact official statements. In part, the memo read that former transition team members "have a duty to preserve any physical and electronic records that may be related in any way to the subject matter of the pending investigations".

The Post claimed "one of the exchanges of potential interest" centered around a March 22 White House briefing after which Trump asked both Coats and Rogers to stay behind.

Comey testified last week that he also felt pressured to drop the Flynn probe.

Rosenstein wrote a three-page memo on May 9 criticizing Comey for his handling of the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private server while in office.
