Donald Trump had the absolute worst week in Washington

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

Citing a memo from the general counsel´s office of Trump's transition team, the Times said former members were given the order on Thursday for any information involving Russian Federation or Ukraine in the latest sign of the investigations' expanding reach.

Is there an investigation?

Not only is Special Counsel Robert Mueller looking at obstruction of justice charges for Trump, he's also investigating Jared Kushner's finances, probably as a potential explanation for that secret backchannel to Putin he tried to establish.

The tweet from Trump, who has complained throughout the week of a "witch hunt" against him, appears to directly target Rosenstein for the first time, who this week said he wouldn't fire Mueller without good cause. Trump lashed out on Twitter, calling the news a "witch hunt" and a "phony story". He is planning to interview two top U.S. intelligence officials about whether Trump sought their help to get the Federal Bureau of Investigation to back off a related probe of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, according to three people familiar with the inquiry.

"He is a man of extraordinary independence and integrity. and great character", Vice President Mike Pence told reporters on Wednesday, noting that the longtime Justice Department official "came to work, sat down and made his recommendation" to fire Comey.

USA intelligence agencies concluded in January that Russian Federation interfered in the presidential race to try to help Trump win, in part by hacking and releasing emails damaging to his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The memo from the transition's general counsel directs all staffers and volunteers who worked on the Trump transition to "preserve any written documents.as well as any electronic information" related to Russia, Ukraine and any foreign travel by Trump transition members.

Tensions are building inside the Justice Department as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein contemplates whether he will become a witness in the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 USA elections. They are building a case for firing Mueller.

The First Information Report was registered on a complaint filed by Hussain's brother Nur Mohammad. Jain has denied all the charges and alleged that it was Zafar who had attacked the officials.

Starr's op-ed follows comments he made on CNN's "New Day" Thursday morning in which he said there is now no obstruction of justice case against Trump, based on the evidence that has been made public so far.

Aides and volunteers on Donald Trump's presidential transition were instructed Thursday to save any records related to "several pending investigations into potential attempts by Russian Federation interests to influence the 2016 election", according to a memo obtained by POLITICO.

Another new revelation about the FBI investigation into Trump and Russian Federation from the Washington Post.

The problem for Trump - and Congressional Republicans - is that Mueller's investigation is going to take time.

ABC said Rosenstein, the No. 2 official at the Department of Justice, told Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand she would have authority over the probe if he were to step aside. And there is no evidence that Mueller recommended to Trump that he fire Comey.

The Russia issue has cast a shadow over Trump's five months in office.

But days later, Trump said in an NBC interview that he had chose to fire Comey before getting their input and he was thinking of "this Russian Federation thing" when he did it.
