GOP rep: Let Mueller do his job

President Donald Trump is taking to Twitter denounce reports that the Russian Federation investigation is widening to examine whether he tried to obstruct justice.

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.

President Donald Trump acknowledged on Friday he is under investigation in a probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential race and possible collusion by his campaign - and seemed to assail the Justice Department official overseeing the inquiry.

Rosenstein, 52, has said little publicly, but a cryptic statement he released late Thursday captured some of the strain and frustration he is probably feeling about the numerous unauthorized leaks about the Russian Federation investigation that have angered the president, according to several of his colleagues and friends.

Sen. Marco Rubio says it's best for the country to let the FBI's investigation into Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 presidential election take its course, and the Florida Republican tells CNN's "State of the Union" that's what he'd advise President Donald Trump. If Rosenstein was delivering a message from Trump, it wouldn't be the first time he'd helped carry out the president's agenda: in May, he wrote a memo giving Trump cover to fire Comey.

"I do not appreciate you putting words in my mouth, when I've been crystal clear that the president is not and has not been under investigation", the attorney said.

In early May, on the day Comey was sacked, Rosenstein wrote a scathing memo about the way Comey conducted himself during the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said on ABC's "This Week" that the panel is looking forward to getting a response from the White House on whether recordings exist.

Comey had testified that as of the time he was sacked by Trump on May 9, the Federal Bureau of Investigation was not investigating Trump, but the Post story said that changed days later with Comey's firing. But he had said last week he felt vindicated by Comey's testimony on June 8 that he was not the subject of investigation while Comey was heading the agency.

Rosenstein finds himself in a spot as he could face the President anger or answer questions about his own future role supervising Mueller when he could become a witness in the special counsel's probe. Pence headed the Trump transition until inauguration day. He said the president "sought my advice and input" on Comey's firing.

The special counsel is looking for evidence to support claims that Trump's associates illegally colluded with Moscow during the president's victorious run for the White House past year. He said the "last thing we know is when he testified just a couple weeks back".

Trump's tweet, however, explicitly says he is under investigation and calls that investigation a "witch hunt".
