Trump insists there's no proof he colluded with Russian Federation

Earlier this month, Rosenstein told The Associated Press he would recuse himself from overseeing Robert Mueller's investigation if his role in former FBI Director James Comey's firing becomes relevant to the inquiry.

In another tweet Friday morning, Trump said it's "sad" that seven months of investigations and hearings into possible links between his campaign and Russian Federation have been fruitless.

And it was Rosenstein who appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. In a series of tweets on Friday morning the president confirmed that he was being investigated for firing James Comey on May 9th.

Deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein submitted a widely circulated memo to the president last month raising concerns over Mr Comey's performance, but Mr Trump later said he had already made the decision to fire Mr Comey.

During congressional testimony last week, Comey stated under oath the President was not under investigation by the FBI prior to or after his firing.

Fakhar Zaman rewarded for his risk
Many Indian fans are now tweeting congratulatory messages for the winning team but also showering the Indian team with love. The game appeared to be taking a predictable turn when Bumrah seemed to have nicked Fakhar to the keeper in the fourth over.

The memo identifies several Trump officials and advisers whose records are of particular interest in the probe.

Comey was sacked by the president on May 9 while he was overseeing the investigation into potential Russian interference into last year's election and potential collusion with the Trump presidential campaign.

The President's tweet - seeming to confirm the probe based on news reports - came as a surprise to the President's own legal team, according to a person briefed on the matter.

But Republicans also worry that Mr. Trump is giving Mueller more material to investigate all the time.

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 U.S. attorney, to represent him in the ongoing probes.

Hugs Victim of London Fire
The government has committed 5 million pounds for clothes, food and emergency supplies for the victims. The investigation into the cause of the fire that has now been extinguished will take weeks, he added.

However, Trump was open about his intentions to fire Comey regardless of Rosenstein's advice. The Washington Post reported Mueller may be interested in a meeting in which Trump allegedly urged Rogers and Coats to convince Comey to back off the probe into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Mr Comey, who had been leading one of several Russian Federation inquiries, testified to Congress last week that the president had pressured him to drop an inquiry into links between Mr Flynn and Russian Federation.

A White House spokesperson declined to comment, as did a Justice Department spokesperson.

Moscow has denied any interference.

Reports that Trump is being looked at for criminal obstruction of justice first surfaced yesterday. I think the president should get on the work that is so important that he do and at this point let this investigation run its course. He could order Rosenstein to do so, but under federal regulations Rosenstein would need to show "good cause" to fire Mueller.
