Trump's digital volley appeared to be trained at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who recommended the firing last month of James Comey - an nearly unprecedented move that could yet imperil Trump's presidency.
It was unclear whether the president was referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
NY [U.S.], June 16: U.S. President Donald Trump has mocked FBI investigators of not being able to find any evidence related to the probe of a possible collusion between his team and Russian Federation during 2016 Presidential election.
Yet Trump seemed to dispute that narrative weeks ago when he told NBC's Lester Holt he had Russian Federation on has mind.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is now overseeing the investigation into President Trump's campaign, but there's been speculation he could step down.
Yesterday, Trump referred to the possible obstruction of justice investigation as the "single greatest witch hunt in American political history". White House officials had no case ready for the dismissal of Comey and received heavy criticism for the conflicting explanations about his departure. "Witch hunt", the president tweeted.
In a perplexing series of Friday-morning tweets, President Donald Trump appeared to confirm that he is under investigation by the FBI and levelled a scathing attack against the officials leading the inquiry.
"What I did is I was going to fire Comey".
DONALD TRUMP'S LAWYER has insisted that the US President is not being investigated personally by the Federal Bureau of Investigation - despite Trump himself saying that he is.
The president has directed some of his frustration at Rosenstein and Mueller.
In his Tuesday testimony before the Senate, Rosenstein said he would only fire Mueller under "lawful and appropriate orders" to prove Mueller's firing is for a "good cause".
White House aides have been instructed to not talk about Russian Federation investigation, but that doesn't apply to the President.
