Trump Appears to Confirm That He's Being Personally Investigated

President Trump acknowledged he's under investigation Friday in his latest Twitter spree - again insisting that there's a "witch hunt" against him for axing FBI director James Comey.

The Democratic National Committee called on Mr Rosenstein to recuse himself from the Russian Federation matter, but it said authority over the investigation should be given to Mr Mueller and not another Trump appointee.

The Democratic National Committee said on Friday it saw a need for Rosenstein to recuse himself, but it said control over the investigation should be given to Mueller and not another Trump appointee.

Meanwhile there were unconfirmed reports that deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, who has taken charge of the Russian investigation since attorney general Jeff Sessions recused himself, could step aside from the investigation.

"Sad!" the U.S. president tweeted.

The White House has said the president "has never asked Mr Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn". Since then Mueller, who served as FBI director before Comey, has taken over the investigation.




If Trump was instead referring to Mueller, that would also raise questions, since the tweet indicated that "the man" is someone who told the president to fire Comey, and there have been no reports that Mueller was involved in that decision. Now, the president has said through his aides he does not plan, at this time, to try and fire the special counsel Bob Mueller, but there's one person recommending he does just that. Rosenstein in a memo to Trump raised concerns over Comey, and later appointed Mueller as special counsel.

"Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, "bleached" emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?" the president said in a follow up tweet.

Trump's legal team and surrogates are "building a case for firing Mueller", wrote Richard Painter in a tweet after he appeared on Fox News Saturday.

Late Thursday, reports surfaced Vice President Mike Pence hired a lawyer to assist him through probes into whether there were ties between Trump's election campaign and Russian Federation. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who said she's anxious that the President will try to fire both Mueller and Rosenstein.

The transition order came the same day that Vice-President Mike Pence's confirmed that he had hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.
