Trump appeared to be responding to reports this week that the FBI is investigating Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey and his apparent attempts to quash the bureau's investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
The tweet marked the first public, official confirmation that the president is under investigation for firing Comey in May. The White House referred to Trump's outside legal counsel when asked if the president was specifically referring to Rosenstein. Mr Comey testified that Mr Trump directed him in February to drop an FBI investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn relating to the Russian Federation matter. Since then Mueller, who served as FBI director before Comey, has taken over the investigation.
Mueller is now leading the investigation into whether Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.
President blasts reports he's under investigation
The Washington Post previously reported that Trump also asked Rogers and Coats to push back against the FBI's investigation. Mr Comey told Congress last week he believed he was sacked by Mr Trump to undermine the agency's Russian Federation probe.

In recent weeks, there has been a lot of reporting that Trump has grown frustrated that there is a "Russia cloud" hovering over his presidency and wants to find a way to remove it.
President Donald Trump has appeared to acknowledge he is under investigation in the inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election.
Less than an hour later, Trump sent out another tweet, this one aimed directly at Rosenstein.
Trump's tweet comes on the heels of a vague statement on the investigation from Rosenstein, released late on Thursday, and the spate of exclusive stories about the latest developments. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who said she's anxious that the President will try to fire both Mueller and Rosenstein. But Rosenstein is not supposed to be involved in the day-to-day operations, and he testified at a Senate hearing earlier this week that he had not spoken with Mueller since he appointed him as special counsel on May 17. Though Mr Pence was not involved in Mr Trump's presidential campaign, he may be called as a witness in the investigation into links between the Trump campaign team and Russian Federation.
Trump, who hired his own lawyer last month regarding the probe, kept up his criticism of the investigation.
