The probe by special counsel Robert Mueller, a former FBI chief, "marks a major turning point in the almost year-old FBI investigation, which until recently focused on Russian meddling during the presidential campaign and on whether there was any coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin", The Washington Post reported.
An hour after the "nice" tweet, Trump continued to reiterate his stance that the investigation was a farce, tweeting again that it was a "witch hunt".
The reports of this investigation come a week after James Comey testified before the Senate. "Officials say that changed shortly after Comey's firing", the Washington Post says.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers and Rogers' former deputy Richard Ledgett agreed to be interviewed as part of Mueller's investigation, according to five people "briefed on the requests" who were "not authorized to discuss the matter publicly", the paper reports.
"A basic question is, where would and investigation of the president lead?" "The FBI leak of information regarding the president is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Trump's private attorney, Marc Kasowitz.
It comes a day after lawmakers questioned Justice Department officials about the probe and Mueller's independence.
The NSA told the Post in a statement that it intends to "fully cooperate with the special counsel". The office of Director of National Intelligence and Ledgett declined to comment.

Mr Comey told Congress last week he believed he was sacked by Mr Trump to undermine the agency's Russian Federation probe.
The Washington Post previously reported that Trump also asked Rogers and Coats to push back against the FBI's investigation.
Meanwhile Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Charles Grassley said his panel would investigate the removal of Mr Comey and "any alleged improper partisan interference in law enforcement investigations".
"I take the President's words".
Mueller's investigative team has expanded in recent weeks.
Trump and his supporters cast Comey's testimony that he had told the president he was not personally under investigation as vindication. "I know I was sacked because of something about the way I was conducting the Russian Federation investigation was in some way putting pressure on him, in some way irritating him, and he made a decision to fire me because of that", he said.
Significantly, Preet Bharara, the India-born former top United States federal prosecutor, earlier this week had said that there was enough evidence to begin an obstruction of justice case against Trump over his alleged interference in the Russian Federation probe.
