Rosenstein oversees Mueller, but the deputy attorney general is not actually conducting the investigation.
Appearing on a series of morning news programs, attorney Jay Sekulow said that a Friday tweet from Trump was specifically directed at a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling.
Although he was strongly critical of some of Comey's testimony, the president said last week that the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief had vindicated him when he said that while he was at the agency, Trump was not the subject of the FBI's Russian Federation probe.

That stung ever since, as Durant understood, because he gave up the same lead to the Warriors a round earlier with Oklahoma City. When Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors last July, they were the definitive favorite to win the NBA Championship.
U.S. intelligence agencies concluded in January that Russian Federation interfered in the presidential race to try to help Mr Trump win, in part by hacking and releasing emails damaging to his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Later, that position was contradicted by the President himself, in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, when he stated that he had made up his mind to fire Comey before he had even seen the Rosenstein memo.
In another indication of the seriousness of the probe, Michael Cohen, a personal attorney to Trump, said he has retained attorney Stephen Ryan, a former assistant U.S. attorney, to represent him in the ongoing probes.
Abbas reportedly ready to suspend settlement freeze demand to restart peace talks
Israeli NGO Peace Now has revealed that, as expected, Israel advanced a large number of new settlement units this week. More than 600,000 Israelis live in settlements in the West Bank, including in annexed east Jerusalem .
Earlier this week, the president called the investigation the "greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history" and said it was being led by "some very bad and conflicted people".
Now, Richard W. Painter, the former White House ethics lawyer tweeted Saturday saying: "Just appeared on FOX News".
The transition official said the organization has also separately asked the General Services Administration to preserve records from the Trump transition that were transferred to its facilities after the inauguration. Or did Trump fire Comey as a way to stop the Russian Federation investigation from going forward? He has already been subpoenaed by the House of Representatives intelligence committee.
"President Trump has started the clock on the Rosenstein firing watch", said Evan Siegfried, a GOP strategist. Rosenstein, who would be responsible for actually dismissing Mueller, told United States lawmakers he would fire him only with good cause. He said on Fox Business in April that "Comey was very, very good to Hillary Clinton", and said "if he weren't she would be, right now, going to trial".
Edelman, Patriots reach deal on multi-year contract, Schefter reports
Though he has never been a Pro Bowler, Edelman has been massively important to the Patriots passing game these last few years. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is a leader on the field and, when it comes to taking less money than he's worth, off it, too.
