Mueller is in charge of the Russian Federation investigation that has expanded to include Trump's firing of Comey.

President Trump on Friday called the investigation into allegations of Russian Federation collusion and claims he obstructed justice "ridiculous" while saying special counsel Robert Mueller's friendship with fired FBI Director James Comey "is very bothersome", during a wide-ranging interview on "Fox & Friends" that also touched on his stalled legislative agenda and the health care debate. "There has been leaking by Comey".

Meanwhile, the head of the US House of Representatives' Russia investigation said today he wanted a formal response from Mr Trump to a request for records about conversations with Mr Comey.

After that, Trump and top White House aides repeatedly refused to provide a straightforward answer about whether tapes existed - until Thursday, when Trump finally admitted in two carefully-phrased tweets that he made no tapes of his meetings with Comey.

In an interview that aired Friday on "Fox and Friends", Trump said Mueller is "very, very good friends with Comey, which is very bothersome".

"Comey in particular think to himself, 'I better be honest, I better tell the truth about the circumstances regarding the situation, '" Spicer said.

Trump has disputed Comey's assertion that Trump asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation director for a pledge of loyalty during a meeting.

"You've been hearing the word unmasking - a word you probably never heard before, so you never know what's out there, but I didn't tape and I don't have any tape", he added.
