Trump lashes out at 'bad,' 'conflicted' Russian Federation investigators

While Trump may have been thinking of firing Mueller - as the President's ally Christopher Ruddy said this week - the outcry from lawmakers and others may make Mueller's job one of the safest in town.
Shortly after Robert Mueller was named special counsel in the federal Russian Federation investigation, lawmakers speculated that the congressional probes may be sidelined by the forceful new presence. Several congressional committees are also investigating the Russian Federation matter. "He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry".
Rosenstein wrote a memo in May to Trump strongly criticizing FBI Director James Comey's performance.
The morning missive appeared to refer to Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general. He took over the investigation after Attorney-General Jeff Sessions recused himself in March.
ABC said Mr Rosenstein told Associate Attorney-General Rachel Brand that she would have authority over the probe if he were to step aside.
Since Rosenstein recommended the firing, he could be a witness in the case and ethically obligated to recuse himself.
A Trump confidant said this week the president had considered firing Mueller.
At a Senate appropriations committee hearing, Rosenstein hinted - without confirming directly - that Mueller's investigation could probe deep into Trump's White House.
When The Washington Post reported this week that Mueller was investigating Trump for obstruction of justice, a spokesman for the President's private attorney called the leak "outrageous, inexcusable and illegal".

Rosenstein, the official who would be responsible for dismissing Mueller, told USA lawmakers he would fire him only with good cause.
Yet Trump's angry tweets on Friday underscored the near-impossible challenge his advisers and legal team have in trying to get him to avoid weighing in on an active probe.
President Donald Trump confirmed Friday he is under federal investigation and appeared to single out a senior Justice Department official for criticism, firing off tweets underscoring his growing frustration with the persistent focus on Russia's involvement in the 2016 election and possibly his campaign.
On Thursday night, he issued a statement lashing out at news stories sourced to anonymous officials and that he believes are causing the President and Republicans to attack the Justice Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mueller for alleged leaks.
The memo to former transition team members on Thursday also seeks specific information on five people, the Times reported. The order also wants background records on former campaign manager Paul Manafort; his business partner Rick Gates; former foreign policy adviser Carter Page; former national security adviser Michael Flynn; and longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone.
Flynn was dismissed by Trump in February after it emerged he had misled Pence about conversations with the Russian ambassador.
The Senate Judiciary Committee is also trying to assert its place in the Russian Federation investigative. hierarchy. An official of Trump's transition confirmed the laywer's internal order sent Thursday.
Mueller continues to hire a team of lawyers, and with FBI investigators is gathering information that is widely expected to lead to a formal investigation into whether President Trump attempted to interfere in the investigation.
