Sessions: I have 'no knowledge' of Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation

Sessions: I have 'no knowledge' of Trump campaign collusion with Russian Federation”

A person familiar with Trump's tweet said the President was referencing news reports that he is under investigation and was not indicating that he's been personally informed by the special counsel that he is a target of the probe.

Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy, a friend of the President, said earlier this week that Trump was considering firing Mueller, who has been appointed to investigate Russia's influence on the 2016 presidential election.

An hour later Trump tweeted that it was a witch hunt.

Mueller has the authority to investigate whether Trump tried to obstruct justice which is a potentially impeachable offense.

On Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin said Comey had presented no evidence to prove that Moscow meddled in the USA election, adding that Washington had tried to influence Russian elections "year after year", he said. Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy made the comments on the eve of testimony at the Senate Intelligence Committee by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions over the Trump-Russia probe.

On Wednesday night, a spokesman for Trump's lawyer did not refute the notion that Trump was under examination but decried what he said were leaks that led to the story.

The White House is referring all questions regarding the Russian investigation to Trump's outside attorney Marc Kasowitz.

The meeting was reportedly part of a White House effort to review Mueller, a former FBI Director, as a potential replacement for Comey at the bureau.

It quoted five people briefed on the requests and said those who have agreed to be interviewed are Daniel Coats, the director of national intelligence, Admiral Mike Rogers, the head of the National Security Agency, and his recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett.

Several congressional panels are also investigating the Russian Federation issue, which has cast a shadow over the early months of Trump's presidency. "Nice", Trump wrote in his first tweet.

"I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

The Washington Post, citing unidentified officials, carried the report on Wednesday.

Trump is under increasing pressure on the Russian Federation probe.

The Times report corroborates a separate bombshell Washington Post article, published Wednesday, that said in addition to possible obstruction, investigators are also "looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates".

The new allegations against Trump center on his own admission that he fired Comey because of the Russian Federation investigation, and suggestions he asked several top intelligence officials for their help altering the direction of the inquiry. "President Trump said prior that once he gets in he's going to kick the S-H-I-T out of the enemy".

The Justice Department declined to comment on Friday.
