The Page transcripts appeared just as the New York Times reported on Friday that, after Mr. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017, the FBI began an inquiry to see if Mr. Trump was a Moscow agent.

Following a report that the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation into President Donald Trump's relationship with Russian Federation, former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi said it is likely that Robert Mueller indeed has "classified" evidence.

Trump, chose to respond to the reports on Twitter, beginning his comments by calling the New York Times "failing".

In the string of tweets on Saturday morning, Trump accused Comey of "rigging" and "botching" the investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails, and said that his "poor leadership" of the Clinton case put the FBI "in complete turmoil".

Trump went on to insist he has been "FAR tougher on Russia" than his last three White House predecessors-"maybe tougher than any other president".

The Prime Minister himself posted the same selfie, writing, "Had a good meeting with popular film personalities". The caption further read, "As a community, there is a huge interest to contribute to nation building".

The president's lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani said that nothing came out of the investigation, but admitted that he did not know much about it.

Mr Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the Times that he had no knowledge of the inquiry but said that since it was opened a year and a half ago and they had not heard anything, apparently "they found nothing".

Robert Mueller, who was appointed as the special counsel after Comey's firing, then took over the investigation in regard to Russian election interference.

The probe later expanded into whether Trump committed a felony crime of obstruction of justice when he fired FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.

They were also motivated by his reported statements during a May White House meeting with visiting Russian officials that he had fired Comey because "he was insane, a real nut job".

"I was going to fire Comey knowing there was no good time to do it", Trump said in an NBC interview two days after he fired Comey.

But it held off on opening an investigation until the president sacked Comey, who refused to pledge allegiance to Trump and roll back the nascent Russian Federation investigation.

CNN reported last month that the dismissal set off a flurry of activity by Rosenstein and top Federal Bureau of Investigation officials.

Among Russiagate's devout faithful, the report was treated as an earth-shattering revelation that reinforced their core dogma - i.e., that Donald Trump is a Kremlin agent installed in the White House by Vladimir Putin to destroy democracy. "I don't know if there's any time in our lifetime or the history of the country where federal law enforcement looked down to the White House ... and thought the actions of the president might threaten USA national security". The Times previously reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mr. Mueller rather than keeping the Russian Federation probe in-house, talked of wearing a wire when he met with the president.
