Special counsel reportedly offers to limit in-person questions in Trump interview

U.S. President Donald Trump arrives at a Make America Great Again Rally at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa Florida

The White House said the tweet was not an order to Sessions and that Trump was expressing his frustration with the length of the probe. "It's the president's opinion".

John Thune, the third-ranking Senate Republican, rejected Trump's call to shut down Mueller. It's a statement. Of course it can be considered evidence of obstruction, depending on what is said.

Trump has raged privately in recent days that both the forces of government and the media are trying to undermine him.

Mr Austin added: "The second is Paul Manafort the former campaign chairman".

Nielsen, Wray and Nakasone had all gathered earlier this week in New York City with leaders of top finance, energy and telecommunications companies for a cybersecurity summit, where they spoke of the urgent need for a collective, collaborative approach to security. Chiming in with Sanders, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, also former mayor of NY, said: "I think it's very well established the president uses tweets to express his opinions".

Trump is "the most pro-black" president I've ever seen Trump renews calls for interview with Mueller: report CNN's Acosta: Hannity is "injecting poison into the nation's political bloodstream" MORE and his legal team will likely decide whether to arrange an interview between the president and special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE within the next 10 days, according to Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.

In a reference to the special prosecutor who is heading-up the Russian Federation probe, the president added: "Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democracts that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to the United States of America!".

The first trial arising from the probe into Russia's role in the election, began on Tuesday in Alexandria, Virginia.

They, along with National Security Agency director Gen. Paul Nakasone and FBI Director Christopher Wray, appeared at the White House today to try to reassure the American people they are doing everything in their power to address the threat.

"It's not a secret: I think he'd like to kill the Mueller investigation any way he can, but I hope this country and particularly its representatives will not follow that", she said.

"These old charges have nothing to do with Collusion - a Hoax!" he said.

Later the president invoked one of the nation's most notorious criminals, 1920s gangster Al Capone, and posed the question "who was treated worse" while airing his grievance about Manafort being held in solitary confinement ahead of a conviction.

Federal prosecutors revealed last month that he was afforded unusual privileges while in detention.

But Manafort's involvement in the Trump campaign spanned six months, and he led efforts to secure the GOP nomination for Trump in 2016.

But Nielsen said US agencies have "seen a willingness and a capability on the part of the Russians" to attack USA election infrastructure.

Sanders maintained, though, that the White House wants the investigation to "be completed", and said this should happen "sooner rather than later".

The president's tweet today might be seen as relevant.

The quiet exchange of proposals between the two sides stands in sharp contrast to a series of broadsides that Trump and his aides have launched at Mueller and his investigation. No one is above the law-not even the president.

But Trump's entourage denied the obstruction of justice claim, saying that the president's tweet was an opinion, not an order.
