"No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly", he said.
The newspaper cited unnamed sources familiar with the probe as saying a current top White House official has been identified as a "significant person of interest", without disclosing the name of the person. Mr Flynn had engaged in numerous contacts with Russian officials, some of which he misrepresented to Vice President Mike Pence and others.
It is unclear exactly how Mueller's leadership will affect the direction of the probe, and he is already bringing in new people to work on the team. Congressional probes are about to go dark now that Bob Mueller's on the case, achieving Trump's alleged goal of less politicization.
The probe marks a third line of inquiry regarding Russian influence, adding to a more general investigation into Russian meddling in the investigation, and a more specific investigation into Trump campaign ties to the country.
Rosenstein said in testimony to the Congress this week that investigators are now looking into the possibility of a coverup by the White House, unidentified lawmakers told McClatchy Friday.
U.S. deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein explained his role in the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey today (May 19).

Mr Comey's dismissal last week set off a series of jarring developments that culminated on Wednesday in the Justice Department's appointment of a special counsel to probe possible ties between Russian Federation and Mr Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

The White House did not respond to a request for comment on whether it is reviewing the ethics rule in order to undermine Mueller's credibility. Flynn stepped down after The Washington Post reported on the contents of the call.
The president has nonetheless seemed to defend his former adviser.
Mr Trump met with the Russians on May 10, the day after he fired Mr Comey.
Air Force One departed from Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, outside Washington, with the president, first lady Melania Trump, his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, as well as a group of senior advisers and journalists covering the trip.
