It was not clear what prompted the statement, although it came hours after The Washington Post reported that the business dealings of Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, are being examined as part of Mueller's investigation.

"His concern was, because we're looking at the potential - again, that's the subject of the investigation - coordination between the campaign and Russian Federation, because it was President Trump - President-elect Trump's campaign, this person's view was, inevitably, his behavior, his conduct will fall within the scope of that work", Comey said.

Comey leaked one of the memos to the media via a friend in an effort to help trigger the appointment of a special counsel to oversee the Department of Justice's Russian Federation investigation.

Gorelick added, "Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry".

While the Washington Post previously reported Kushner's contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and Sergey Gorkov, the head of a state-owned Russian development bank, were being examined, the report noted it wasn't clear at the time that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was scrutinizing Kushner's business deals.

The Russian bank, Vnesheconombank, which has been the subject of United States sanctions following Russia's annexation of Crimea, has said Gorkov and Kushner's meeting was held for business reasons because of the advisor's role as head of his family's real estate company.

Advisers and confidants to President Donald Trump describe the president as increasingly angry over the investigation into Russia's election meddling and possible ties to his campaign. Trump associates say the president believes both are biased against him.

Still, Trump seemed to be raising the question of whether Rosenstein might have to recuse himself from the investigation - something Rosenstein discussed privately with colleagues, ABC News reported yesterday.

The Thursday document request came on a day when Trump unloaded on a probe he branded a 'witch hunt'.

"And so he was reluctant to make the statement that I made", Comey said. "And so that was his view throughout", Comey said.

President Donald Trump walks with National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster from the Oval Office to Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Friday, June 16, 2017, for a short trip to Andrews Air Force Base, .

Mueller is reportedly interested in speaking with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and former deputy Richard Ledgett.

Kushner and other Trump business associates are being looked at in the investigation, according to a new report. "The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", he said. Coats and Rogers have testified that they were not pressured by the Trump administration.
