Special counsel Robert Mueller has been leading the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russia. However, the details are not yet known as charges remain sealed.

Rosenstein appointed Mueller in May to lead the investigation into Russian meddling after FBI Director James Comey was sacked by President Trump.

In addition to the possibility of collusion, Mueller and his team have focused their investigation into obstruction on behalf of President Trump, who fired former FBI director James Comey, who once led the Russian Federation investigation.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment on Friday.

The Kremlin has also denied the claims.

The allegation led to speculation that president might have obstructed justice by attempting to influence the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.
