Trump's transition team told to protect records

Trump has tweeted about the Russian Federation probes or lashed out at the media three out of the five business days this week, suggesting that the President has become frustrated with the attention paid to the Russian Federation probes.

Deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein submitted a widely circulated memo to the President in May 2017 raising concerns over Mr. Comey's performance, but Mr. Trump later asserted that he had already made the decision himself to fire Mr. Comey.

Accusations of obstruction arose last month when Trump fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Known to watch cable news often, Trump has even taken to recording morning shows to watch later in the day and has "complained nonstop".

Rosenstein took over the Russian Federation probe soon after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself.

79 people presumed dead in London tower block fire
Around 70 people are missing, according to Britain's Press Association, and identification of the victims is proving very hard . The recovery operation had been paused amid concerns for the safety of emergency workers in the building, but has now resumed.

Trump's tweets have recently looked an terrible lot like what a reporter said were GOP talking points meant to combat the Post's report. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations", Rosenstein's full statement read.

"The message the president is sending through his tweets is that he believes the rule of law doesn't apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired", she said.

President Trump's personal lawyer has retained a Washington, D.C. -based lawyer to represent him in the various government probes connected to Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

Vice President Mike Pence sent out this tweet shortly after the rant.

The man the president is referring to is Rosenstein, who at the request of Trump and AG Jeff Sessions compiled an opinion supporting the firing of Comey because of the manner in which he dealt with Hillary Clinton's email investigation.

Mr Cohen has worked for Mr Trump since the mid-2000s and was active in the campaign. The special counsel can only be fired by Rosenstein, though the president could in in theory direct Rosenstein to fire him.

"Trump, for months, has bristled nearly daily at the ongoing probes".

The tweets were the latest in a week of angry social media responses from the president over a report by the "Washington Post" that Mr Mueller was looking into whether Mr Trump obstructed justice. His transition team was ordered to preserve documents related to the Russian Federation investigation by the team's general counsel's office, according to The New York Times on Friday. And Democrats and Republicans alike have criticized his use of Twitter, particularly amid the ongoing investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC said of Trump last weekend: "You may be the first president in history to go down because you can't stop inappropriately talking about an investigation that if you just were quiet would clear you".

This is the first time the President is taking aim at Rosenstein, a Trump nominee who previously served as the U.S. Attorney for the state of Maryland and who was widely seen as being non-partisan.
