It was unclear whether his tweet about being under investigation was based on direct knowledge or new media reports that suggest Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey.
When Trump fired Comey, Rosenstein drafted a memo accusing the FBI director of bungling the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server, and Sessions wrote a letter saying the dismissal was warranted. Mueller served as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the Bush and Obama administrations from 2001 to 2013. NPR's White House correspondent Tamara Keith reports. While the investigation had originally been focused on potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, the Post reported, the obstruction inquiry began after Trump fired Comey. But Sen. Marco Rubio said Sunday that he does not expect Trump to seek to fire them.
During the meeting at Trump Tower with the Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, Kushner reportedly floated the possibility of establishing a back-channel line of communication between the Trump transition team and Russia.
Mueller reports to Rosenstein on budget and staffing needs for his team.
A Department of Justice spokesperson declined to address what prompted the statement. At the beginning of June, Newsweek reported that Trump's job approval rating was lower than the percentage of Americans who want to see him impeached.

Democrats seek distance from impeachment call
It's only 143 days into Donald Trump's presidency, and articles of impeachment have been drafted . Brad Sherman to being the process for impeachment, according to a Democratic source in the room.
Even though Mueller is technically leading the investigation, the DOJ controls the funding for the investigation and can fire Mueller if the department decides it's warranted. Painter was President George W. Bush's chief White House ethics lawyer from 2005 to 2007. Rosenstein also insisted Mueller's investigation would have the resources it needs.
If Rosenstein were out of the picture, responsibility for overseeing Mueller's investigation - and deciding his fate - would fall to Rachel Brand, the department's associate attorney general. As it were, many Americans happen to disagree with that assessment. If the dominos continue to fall, one of five assistant attorneys general or the solicitor general would assume the role.
And if Rosenstein and Brand were both out of the picture, responsibility for the investigation would fall to Dana Boente, the acting head of the department's national security division and the current U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.
"That authority clearly lies with the attorney general or in this case, because the attorney general has rescued himself, with the deputy attorney general". Gingrich questioned Mueller's relationship to Comey.
" I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" But that doesn't appear to violate any ethics rules, either, Slansky said. Trump confirmed in a tweet Friday he was under investigation and appeared to take aim at Rosenstein, calling the investigation a "witch hunt".
