Donald Trump 'yells at TVs in the White House' about Russian Federation investigation

Rosenstein, who would be responsible for actually dismissing Mueller, told USA lawmakers he would fire him only with good cause.

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.

Trump's 9:07 a.m. tweet appeared to be principally directed at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the number-two official at the Justice Department who authored a memo justifying Comey's firing.

The special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice, officials said. Some of his ire is aimed at Rosenstein and investigative special counsel Robert Mueller, both of whom the president believes are biased against him, associates say. 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.

Trump's tweet was part of an early-morning tweetstorm in which he went after the Russian Federation investigations and the "Fake News Media".

Shortly thereafter, he followed that up with another tweet, in which he returned to one of his main themes regarding the ongoing probe: "You are witnessing the single greatest witch hunt in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people".

President Donald Trump has appeared to acknowledge he is under investigation in the inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the United States election.

Rosenstein had written a memo critical of James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email server.

As recently as Monday morning, the panel on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" ripped Trump for his continuous rants on Twitter, with co-host Mika Brzezinski saying, "He can't help himself".

The White House has repeatedly referred all questions about Russian Federation to the President's personal attorney.

Friday's tweet confirmed information about the scope of the probe.

The Twitter attacks came as vice president Mike Pence hired a personal lawyer to represent him in the intensifying investigation.

He reiterated tweets from Thursday morning about the investigation. "Nice", Trump wrote in his first tweet.
