"In addition to confirming that he is under investigation, the tweet makes a factual statement regarding the president's decision to fire James Comey, which is a subject of the investigation".
The morning missive appeared to refer to Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general. The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations.
Yet, the president's tweet contradicts his own comments about how and when he made a decision to fire Comey.
In a series of tweets on Thursday, the president repeated his assertion that Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign is a "WITCH HUNT" based on the "phony" premise of possible collusion between Russia and a team of Trump campaign associates. Sad!"The Trump tweets come after the top lawyer for his transition team warned organization officials to preserve all records and other materials related to the Russian Federation probe".

The White House has directed questions to outside legal counsel, which has not responded.
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.
That memo was delivered to Trump the same day he fired Comey. The transition, a nonprofit structurally separate from the Trump campaign, continues to operate with a small staff.
Comey's termination prompted a deeper investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice in the Russia investigation, and Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that Trump asked him in January to drop the FBI probe into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's communications with Russian officials.
The White House cited his memo as a reason for firing Comey, but Trump later admitted in an interview with NBC News that he was going to fire him regardless of the recommendation of his top appointees at the DOJ and was thinking about the bureau's investigation into Russia's meddling in the election.
"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?" he asked. Sad!" he wrote. "Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great.
