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.

Vice President Mike Pence has also hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.

"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.
