On Sunday morning, Trump also said the former deputy director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, may have been lying when he claimed to have notes about their interactions. Trump said during a morning tweet storm.

South Carolina Republican Lindsay Graham said on Sunday that if Trump attempted to end the Russian Federation investigation by getting rid of Mueller, "that would be the beginning of the end of his presidency".

In the most recent public opinion poll, taken in February by Monmouth University, 62 percent of Americans said that they feel not only that Trump should not fire Mueller, but that congress should pass a law to protect the special counsel's job if, in fact, Trump does move to pink-slip Mueller. "Let Special Counsel Muller figure that out", he said.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake, a frequent Trump critic, said it appeared the president's latest comments seemed to be preparing the ground for the firing of Mr Mueller.

Legislation to protect Mueller's job was introduced months ago in congress, but has gone nowhere, despite earlier reports that Trump ordered White House Counsel Don McGhan to figure out a way to fire Mueller in June of past year, less than a month after Mueller was first appointed.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., a House Intelligence Committee member who generally supports Trump, urged the president and his team to give Mueller "the time, the independence and the resources" needed to complete the job. "This would undoubtedly result in a constitutional crisis and I think Democrats and Republicans need to speak out about this right now".

Dowd called on Rosenstein to "bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier".

Vladimir Putin wins Russian election amid protests and ballot stuffing allegations
For some observers, the real question for Putin is whether he can now use his mandate to push for some program of economic reform. Yugene Yarmakov, 23, who was voting for the first time, said there were too many "joke candidates". "The others, it's a circus".

McCabe was sacked Friday by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions said he fired McCabe because the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility found that he lied under oath "on multiple occasions".

Shortly after McCabe was sacked, the president praised the decision on Twitter, calling it a "great day for Democracy". "And they can judge for themselves who is honorable and who is not", he tweeted on Saturday.

News that Mr McCabe had kept records of his conversations with Mr Trump at the time he was acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director emerged on Saturday.

"Spent very little time with Andrew McCabe, but he never took notes when he was with me".

He added: "I don't believe he made memos except to help his own agenda, probably at a later date".

USA media say the memos will support Mr Comey's account of the circumstances of his dismissal last May.

"I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey", his response said. He said strongly "never, no".
