Two of the people with knowledge of that process say those efforts include probing the political affiliations of Mueller's investigators and their past work history. And he says there's no question that Mueller is a Republican, noting that he was first appointed Federal Bureau of Investigation director under Republican President George W. Bush in 2001.

The Senate Judiciary Committee said on Friday that Trump Jr. and Manafort had agreed to negotiate whether to be interviewed by the panel in its Russian Federation investigation.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif.

In a series of early morning Twitter messages, Trump aired renewed frustration with his attorney general, the special counsel leading the Russian Federation probe, and Republicans in Congress who are struggling to advance his legislative agenda.

Kushner is disclosing the information in an 11-page statement provided to The Associated Press.

Manafort became Trump's campaign manager in June 2016 but was forced to resign two months later amid reports of his business relationship with the Kremlin-backed former Ukrainian leader, Viktor Yanukovich.

His tweet came just hours before his son-in-law, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, travelled to Capitol Hill to be interviewed about his meetings with Russians.

Mueller is also looking into the income tax return of President Donald Trump which angered the billionaire.

The name of one long-time Trump ally, Rudy Giuliani, was floated on Monday as a possible replacement for Mr Sessions, but a person who recently spoke to the former New York City mayor said Mr Giuliani had not been approached about the position.

The Washington Post reported over the weekend that Sessions met with the Russian Ambassador to the US Sergey Kislyak to discuss Trump campaign matters during the 2016 presidential election, according to US intelligence intercepts.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller's team is examining Manafort's financial and real estate records in NY as well as his involvement in Ukrainian politics, the officials said.

The interview with the Senate intelligence committee is behind closed doors. "That is really something, in my opinion, he needs to look at because what concerns me the most, is anything that can be held over the President's head that could influence US policy, that would be among most powerful form of kompromat". On Tuesday, he'll talk privately to members of the House Intelligence Committee.

Schiff addressed that on CBS, saying: "First the President is clearly anxious that Bob Mueller will be looking into allegations, for example, that the Russians may have laundered money through the Trump Organization". Kushner has attracted attention for a December meeting with a leading Russian diplomat. Scaramucci has said he'd like to hit the "reset button" with the media.
