Speculation that President Donald Trump plans to remove the special investigator looking into Russia's meddling with the presidential election has been rampant.

If Mueller strays from the straight and narrow, Rosenstein should not hesitate to remove him and name someone else to serve as special counsel.

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

Mueller was reportedly seeking interviews with three Trump administration officials who weren't involved in the president's campaign, implying the investigation has expanded beyond the election itself.

"Potentially complicating matters, Trump posted an exasperated message today on Twitter, dismissing the Russia-related probe as a "witch hunt" and lamenting that he's 'being investigated for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director by the man who told me to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director!'" ABC News writes. That, not a political witch hunt, is what the nation needs.

Rosenstein took charge of the investigation in March after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself under pressure over his own contacts with Russian officials.

Top Democrats warned Mr. Trump against a power grab on Friday.

The order by the general counsel for the transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government.

Pence hired Richard Cullen, chairman of law firm McGuireWoods, to help him respond to inquiries from Mueller, a spokesman said. Trump fired Comey on May 9.

Pence has seldom addressed the Russian Federation issue, which has overshadowed Trump's efforts to overhaul the healthcare system, cut taxes and boost jobs - priorities that Pence has worked on intensively with Republican lawmakers.

"They made up a phoney collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phoney story". Sad!" Trump tweeted. "Despite the phony Witch Hunt going on in America, the economic & jobs numbers are great.
