White House: Trump won't sack special counsel Robert Mueller

"Nice", Trump tweeted early Thursday morning.

Accusations of obstruction arose last month when Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.

A total of five individuals, speaking on the condition of anonymity, have told the Washington Post that shortly after Comey's firing on the 9th of May, officials had begun looking into whether or not President Trump obstructed justice.

Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Trump's private attorney, Marc Kasowitz, immediately condemned the Post report.

Sessions said he recused himself from the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation only because of a regulation to require the step because of his involvement in the Trump campaign. Comey did not say whether he thought Trump's actions constituted an obstruction of justice, but said he was "sure" Mueller would investigate it.

Three U.S. soldiers were killed and another was wounded in eastern Afghanistan this weekend in an attack claimed by the Taliban. As a candidate, Trump deplored the waste of America's wars and suggested he would try to end them.

Trump's legal team quickly denounced the report on Wednesday.

In recent days, Trump has reportedly been mulling the idea of firing Mueller, who DOJ Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein appointed in the subsequent chaos of the Comey firing.

According to one source, Mueller sees the obstruction claims as more than just "he said, he said" between Trump and Comey. Investigators are also seeking to learn whether any Trump campaign associates colluded with Russian officials in the meddling. Further, it is possible that the sources talking with the Post don't know all the facts. His tweet Friday seemed to walk that back, suggesting the president instead acted on Rosenstein's recommendation, rather than his own personal beliefs.

Then Donald Trump himself seemed to indicate that the FBI's probe into his campaign's links with Russian Federation was on his mind when he chose to fire Comey.

The White House has denied any collusion, and Mr Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win.

The president then started complaining about the FBI investigation and Comey's handling of it, said officials familiar with the account Coats gave to associates.

While he was strongly critical of some of Mr Comey's testimony to a Senate panel, the president said last week that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief had vindicated him when he said that while he was at the agency, Mr Trump was not the subject of the FBI's Russian Federation probe.

"I am protecting the right of the president to assert it if he chooses, and there may be other privileges that apply", he said.

Coats refuses to discuss Trump conversations
The Washington Post reported Tuesday that Coats told associates Trump asked him to intervene with Comey in March. Rogers called the conversations "classified" and said it was inappropriate to discuss them "in an open forum".
