  • Trump Says No Proof Of Collusion With Russians

Rosenstein is the government lawyer responsible for overseeing the investigation into the Trump campaign's alleged collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions having recused himself from the probe.

The tweet raises many unanswered questions and follows a series of posts to Twitter by Trump in the past two days complaining about reports that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether the president engaged in obstruction of justice.

Mr Trump, who is due to give a speech in Miami on Friday where he is expected to announce a shift in USA policy towards Cuba, also boasted about his deployment of social media, despite warnings by legal experts that his tweets may be used against him in the ongoing investigation.

In a series of tweets, Trump lashed out against the investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election.

The U.S. television network ABC, citing unnamed sources, reported that Rosenstein had informed Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand that he may have to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigations as well, because of his memo to Trump about Comey.

White House press aides referred questions to Trump's private attorney, Marc Kasowitz of Manhattan.

Trump and his allies have suggested Mueller's independence may be tainted because of his friendship with Comey - who admitted to Congress that he made disclosures with the intention of getting Rosenstein to appoint a special counsel - as well as his hiring of Democrats to assist in the investigation. But a department official said no one asked for the statement and Rosenstein acted on his own.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's office has ordered Trump transition team officials to preserve documents and other materials, in the latest sign of an expansive probe that President Donald Trump has branded a 'witch hunt'. Pence's office confirmed he had retained Richard Cullen, a former Virginia attorney general and USA attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to assist "in responding to inquiries" from Mueller.

And he stood by his use of social media: "The Fake News Media hates when I use what has turned out to be my very powerful Social Media - over 100 million people!" He then asked the Justice Department to provide some advice on the matter (a.k.a.an aboveboard rationalization for Comey's firing).

Trump slammed the development as political witch hunt.

A person familiar with Mueller's inquiry, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Thursday Mueller was looking into whether Trump or others attempted to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation. Though some in the White House have preached caution, fearing a repeat of the firestorm over Comey's firing, many in Trump's orbit - including his son Donald Trump Jr. and adviser Newt Gingrich - have deemed Mueller biased and worthy of dismissal.

Yesterday, news broke that Mike Pence hired outside counsel to represent him on related inquiries as well.

In an attempt to sound upbeat and to downplay the new developments in a controversy that has now reached the Oval Office, Trump also said that "despite the phony witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great". He could order Rosenstein to do so, but under federal regulations Rosenstein would need to show "good cause" to fire Mueller.
