The Washington Post reported late Wednesday that Mueller was seeking interviews with three Trump administration officials who weren't involved in Trump's campaign: Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence; Michael Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency; and Richard Ledgett, the former NSA deputy director.
"I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"
In another tweet earlier Friday, Trump writes, "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians, ' nobody has been able to show any proof".
Evidence that shows any wrongdoing by Trump "remains highly dubious", she wrote, adding, "There is no reason to believe that Russian Federation backed Trump - or even believed he could win". The White House has denied any collusion, and Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller last month, testified Tuesday he has seen no evidence of good cause to fire Mueller.
The Republican president has repeatedly complained about the probe, calling it a witch hunt and saying Democrats can not accept his election victory.
On Friday, the President made extraordinary claims against Clinton and her family for their own alleged dealings with Russian Federation, claiming smashed a phone with a hammer and "bleached" emails to cover their tracks. Trump wrote on Twitter, in a pair of messages that ended with a reference to his campaign slogan "Make America Great Again".
White predicts records will fall in super fight
What I am bemoaning is that the spotlight that is on this farce should be on a couple of other fights that are real. Indeed, he would likely be heavily favored over Mayweather had the two chose to do the fight under UFC rules.
President Donald Trump is telling his Twitter followers that they are witnessing the "single greatest WITCH HUNT in American history".
The transition order came the same day that Vice President Mike Pence's confirmed that he had hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe. Mueller has scheduled meetings with top intelligence officials to determine whether the President tried to pressure them to shut down the Russian Federation investigation.
Trump did not directly address the allegations he obstructed justice - a potentially impeachable offense - neither did he deny he has entered the miniscule ranks of sitting presidents who have become the subject of a criminal investigation. They are Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager; Rick Gates, Manafort's business partner; Carter Page, a former foreign policy adviser; Flynn; and Roger J Stone Jr, an informal adviser to Trump.
The president wrote, "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" While the Trump administration initially said that letter was the reason the president fired Comey on May 9, Trump later said he did so because of the "Russia thing".
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.
"Mueller is setting up a dragnet of obstruction, financial questions and every aspect of Trump's life and his associates lives", Gingrich wrote on Twitter, adding "very risky".
