New York Times sues FBI to get notes of Comey-Trump talks

Rosenstein wrote a memo used by the White House to justify Comey's firing, prompting him to reportedly threaten to resign since the memo, though critical of the former director's performance, did not recommend his termination.

Rosenstein oversees Mueller, but the deputy attorney general is not actually conducting the investigation.

In a two-part tweet posted before 7 a.m., Trump wrote: "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".

It is also reported that Trump has been asked not to publish anything regarding Russian Federation investigation and to curtail his social media postings.

Rosenstein appointed special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US election, and has told lawmakers he would only fire him with good cause.

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.

- The Russia probe clearly is still on President Donald Trump's mind.

Examining such possible charges will allow investigators to interview key administration figures including Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and possibly Trump himself, said the source familiar with the Mueller investigation.

Trump adviser Newt Gingrich said on ABC's "This Week" that the tweet Friday "didn't help him".

Trump has in the past 24 hours written a number of tweets calling the Russian Federation probe a "witch hunt" being carried out by Rosenstein, Mueller and "very bad people".

The White House has directed questions for details to outside legal counsel, which has not responded.

The latter being Trump's effort (dutifully followed by his media groupies) to slime Mueller and the talented legal team he has assembled.

On Thursday, Trump appeared to criticize Mueller on Twitter saying the Russian Federation investigation being "led by some very bad and conflicted people".

After all, fired FBI Director James Comey pretty much telegraphed that during his congressional testimony last week.

It appears Trump is referring to Rod Rosenstein, who set the stage for Comey's dismissal in a letter to Trump. Trump posted. "Witch Hunt".
