Trump again acknowledges he's under investigation


The Post reported on Wednesday that Mueller was investigating Trump to prove whether the president attempted to obstruct justice.

Trump later said in interviews he had planned to fire Comey anyway, and in an NBC interview said he had the Russian Federation investigation in mind when he chose to dismiss the FBI director.

Vice President Mike Pence will soon lead the US if President Donald Trump fires Russian Federation investigation special counsel Robert Mueller, a Bush administration ethics lawyer said Saturday.

Trump fired Comey in May, just as the FBI was investigating ties between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

It is not clear, however, if Trump was referring in Friday's tweet to Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions recommending that the president fire Comey.

The White House confirmed Mr Mueller was among the candidates the president interviewed to replace Mr Comey.

Later, that position was contradicted by the President himself, in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, when he stated that he had made up his mind to fire Comey before he had even seen the Rosenstein memo.

Confidants and advisers close to Mr Trump said his fury was mounting at the probe and he had been yelling at TV sets about its press coverage.

"You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!" Friday could - and perhaps should - have been a day for celebrating his accession to the White House two years after most pundits said his announcement speech was a nonstarter.

"Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm", he wrote Sunday, also pointing to his successful nomination of conservative justice Neil Gorsuch to the top USA court. Trump has called the investigation a "witch hunt". Gingrich questioned Mueller's relationship to Comey.

Vice President Mike Pence has also hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe. The new details are included in a financial disclosure that Trump voluntarily submitted Friday to the Office of Government Ethics, the first snapshot of the Trump Organization's finances after its longtime leader became president. "I can go around them" And he touted a new Rasmussen tracking poll that put his approval rating at 50 percent - an outlier among six June polls that found it ranged from 34 percent to 42 percent.

In his Tuesday testimony before the Senate, Rosenstein said he would only fire Mueller under "lawful and appropriate orders" to prove Mueller's firing is for a "good cause". He has already been subpoenaed by the House of Representatives intelligence committee.
