Sessions denies any collusion with Russian Federation during Trump campaign

Senate Panel Meets With Special Counsel Robert Mueller in Russia Probe

Senate Panel Meets With Special Counsel Robert Mueller in Russia Probe

Painter, meanwhile, explained to The News Friday that Trump's latest tweet also signals he is trying to lay the groundwork for a case to have Rosenstein recuse himself - which would further complicate, or delay the progress of, any potential case against him.

Trump's Twitter response followed days of intensifying criticism of Mueller from some conservatives who have charged the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director and his team with political bias and have claimed his relationship to Comey and an earlier meeting with Trump amount to conflicts of interest.

An hour later Trump tweeted that it was a witch hunt.

Trump's tweet comes less than a day after a odd statement from a senior official in his administration.

"Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations", Rosenstein said. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations".

The president's tweets followed a report in the Washington Post Wednesday that said the special counsel overseeing the probe into Russia's alleged meddling in the U.S. election is now also looking at whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice.

The furious early morning barrage of tweets - his second in as many days - came as the special counsel investigating Russia's influence over his election pieced together a high-caliber legal team and readied to begin interviews.

He also declined to say if President Trump opposed Mr. Sessions' decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation probe in March, and whether Justice Department officials discussed possible presidential pardons of individuals being looked at in the probe.

Mr. Sessions' testimony did not provide any new information on Trump campaign ties with Russian Federation or on Mr. Comey's dismissal, but his refusal to discuss conversations with President Trump raised new questions about whether the White House has something to hide. Trump initially used that memo along with a recommendation from Sessions to justify firing Comey. But soon after the abrupt termination, Trump told NBC News that he had been going to fire Comey regardless of any recommendations.

A heightened sense of unease has gripped the White House after US President Donald Trump lashed out at reports that he is under scrutiny over whether he had obstructed justice.

Three Palestinians killed after attacking Israeli officers
The police have claimed that four other people were wounded but they did not suffer life-threatening injuries. Israel had eased restrictions on the entry of Palestinians from the West Bank to Jerusalem for Ramadan .

His comments follow revelations that special counsel Robert Mueller is examining whether Trump obstructed justice by firing FBI Director James Comey.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", said Mark Corallo, the spokesman, according to the Post.

In light of Trump's concern about leaks, it's possible that Rosenstein's Thursday night statement was aiming to appease a president who has himself often criticized the news media for citing unnamed sources.

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment.

"We may have our differences, but we do well in times like these to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because above all they love our country", Trump said at the White House.
