Trump Lashes Out At Investigators After Reports Of Obstruction Of Justice Inquiry

But Comey has testified under oath that in a private meeting, Trump raised the investigation of fired national security adviser Michael Flynn - part of the larger Russian Federation probe - and said, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

Trump's young presidency has been battered by allegations - under investigation both by Congress and the FBI - that Russian Federation interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favour, in possible collusion with Trump's campaign team.

In the interview Trump did with NBC's Lester Holt shortly after firing FBI Director James Comey, Trump described Rosenstein's involvement in the firing.

President Donald Trump acknowledged on Friday he is under investigation in a probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential race and possible collusion by his campaign - and seemed to assail the Justice Department official overseeing the inquiry.

Regardless of the chaos that could ensue in the leadership of the Justice Department, Mueller's investigation appears insulated, and much of the work of the department done by U.S. attorneys across the country will continue, Cramer said.

The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee says she is "increasingly concerned" that President Donald Trump will attempt to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Inside the White House, a sense of foreboding has taken hold on even the most junior staff and up to the Oval Office, as news emerged that Vice President Mike Pence has hired a high-powered outside counsel to represent him.

Rosenstein later appointed Robert Mueller to lead the investigation into ties between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, which the president has repeatedly labeled a "witch hunt".

In another indication of the seriousness of the probe, Michael Cohen, a personal attorney to Trump, said he has retained attorney Stephen Ryan, a former assistant US attorney, to represent him in the ongoing probes. "Her attitude toward the investigation is likely to be a bit different from Rosenstein's, more informed by the structure of presidential authority and less by unwritten norms of prosecutorial independence".

Comey said he typed notes describing the conversations because he was anxious Trump "might lie" later about them.

Trump left yesterday with his wife and young son to spend the weekend at Camp David for the first time, and is scheduled to return to Washington late today.

A Justice Department spokesman said: "If there comes a point when he needs to recuse, he will".

Moscow has denied any interference.

Trump spent Friday morning touting his economic policies and criticizing the investigation.

Donald Trump has reportedly been yelling at TV sets in the White House as he becomes "increasingly angry" about an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election.
