Earlier on Thursday, Mr Trump tweeted that a new report suggesting that special counsel Robert Mueller may investigate him for possible obstruction of justice after he fired FBI Director James Comey is a "phony story".

"His concern was, because we're looking at the potential - again, that's the subject of the investigation - coordination between the campaign and Russian Federation, because it was President Trump - President-elect Trump's campaign, this person's view was, inevitably, his behavior, his conduct will fall within the scope of that work", Comey said.

"After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my "collusion with the Russians", nobody has been able to show any proof".

"Regardless of recommendation, I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it", Trump told Lester Holt of NBC News in an interview broadcast 11 May. "Witch Hunt" Trump tweeted.

President Donald Trump confirmed Friday he was under investigation and appeared to take aim at a senior Justice Department official, in a tweet that seemed to encapsulate his frustration with the ongoing focus on Russia's involvement in the 2016 election.

Trump criticized media reports that special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating him for obstruction of justice as a part of a wider probe into alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and Trump's campaign, saying Americans are watching "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history".

Trump's tweet Friday morning came after a series of angry tweets Wednesday in which he also complained about a "witch hunt" and criticized the investigation into ties between his campaign and Russia as "a phony collusion with the Russians story". When Comey testified last week, he also gave the committee and Mueller a document that involved Comey taking notes of his communications with President Trump. The order also covers separate inquiries into several key Trump associates including former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, campaign adviser Paul Manafort, foreign policy aide Carter Page and outside adviser Roger Stone.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Mark Corallo, the spokesman for Trump's legal team, said in an email on Wednesday.

Now on trail for second-degree manslaughter, Yanez told jurors that the shooting was justified because he had feared for his life. After three white alternates were dismissed after closing arguments, the 12-member jury included two black and ten white people.

Comey told Congress last week that before being sacked, Trump pressured him to drop an investigation into his former national security advisor, Mike Flynn, who was forced to quit for lying about his links to Moscow.

The White House has directed questions for details to outside legal counsel, which has not responded. It was not known whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation was the source of the information. "They are so easy to win", said Turnbull. Still, the snowballing investigation has deeply angered Trump, who denies he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation. Comey said he told the president on three occasions that he wasn't personally under investigation.

Also Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley said his panel will investigate the removal of former FBI Director James Comey and "any alleged improper partisan interference in law enforcement investigations". Comey deemed that would wrong and refused to do it. Trump then fired Comey. Trump and the White House disputed Comey's description of the events.

A spokesman for Mueller's team declined to comment.
