It comes as factions of the Democrat Party have proven unable to accept the fact their candidate for president, now twice-failed Hillary Clinton, lost a decisive election to the GOP candidate, Donald Trump, in 2016.
On Twitter on Friday, Trump wrote as part of a tweet about the probe that "I am being investigated". Mueller was tasked with taking over the executive branch's investigation into alleged Russian interference and potential collusion between Russia and Trump's associates.
When speaking before Congress last week, Coats said he never felt "pressured" when interacting with the president.
In response to reports that Trump is facing a criminal investigation, Mark Corallo, spokesman for Trump's personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, said in a statement, "The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable, and illegal".
It also appeared to be a criticism of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and had written a letter recommending the ouster of FBI Director James Comey.
At the heart of Sunday's debate was a Friday morning tweet by Trump that made no mention of the Post story: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), have discouraged him from tweeting about the investigations and potentially hurting his case, Sekulow defended Trump as an effective communicator on Twitter.
"He's not afraid of the investigation - there is no investigation... there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period".
Sekulow, "No, he's not being investigated".
The People's United Financial, Inc
On average, equities research analysts anticipate that People's United Financial, Inc . will post $0.95 EPS for the current year. Analysts have placed a $18.11 price target on People's United Financial, Inc ., suggesting a 1.8% gain from recent close.
But Senate investigators continue to press other top officials of the U.S. Intelligence Community for details about their own recent contacts with President Trump, which have been reported to include appeals to help end the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of Russian election meddling.
"But you don't know that he's not under investigation again, sir?"
The Briefing responded with a Ferris Bueller meme and the text, "You're still here?"
"We're in agreement then", Wallace said.
Trump asked why he, and not Clinton, is being "looked at" over "dealings" with Russian Federation.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Manual, prosecutors are encouraged to notify investigation targets at a "reasonable time" before seeking an indictment, to provide a target the opportunity to testify in front of a grand jury.
Trump insists his campaign had nothing to do with Russian efforts to undermine credibility in the US election. Comey said he believed Trump's advice to be a direction and thus felt uncomfortable by it.
Because, obviously, if someone seeking the nation's highest office is under investigation from the Justice Department, that's inherently cause for alarm, right? He said the "last thing we know is when he testified just a couple weeks back".
