In one story, the Washington Post reported that a law enforcement Russia probe has identified a current adviser to the president as a "person of interest", while a New York Times story reported that the commander in chief told visiting Russian officials that the firing of "nut job" FBI Director James Comey had taken a weight off his shoulders.
Separately, The Washington Post reported Friday that the FBI investigation into possible co-ordination between Russian Federation and the Trump presidential campaign was moving closer to the White House.
Rosenstein also said he was not aware that Comey had requested more resources for the Russian Federation probe before he was sacked, as some reports have alleged.
The Washington Post reported Friday afternoon that a senior White House adviser, close to the president, was under scrutiny by investigators examining possible coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.
Trump reportedly disclosed classified information to the Russians regarding an Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) plot to mask bombs in laptops and reportedly divulged the name of the city where the plot was being hatched.
The reports come as the President leaves for his first foreign trip.
Trump met with the Russians on May 10, the day after he fired Comey.
The White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said in a statement on Friday that "by grandstanding and politicizing the investigation into Russia's actions, James Comey created unnecessary pressure on our ability to engage and negotiate with Russian Federation".
And, Pelosi says that Trump has left himself "very vulnerable personally" if he in fact asked Comey to end an investigation of adviser Michael Flynn.
The newspaper cites the White House's official written account of the Oval Office meeting. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the Intelligence Committee's ranking Democrat.
Trump denied that charge at a press conference on Thursday.
"I think majority are ready to flip", one Democratic congressional staffer said of his Republican colleagues this week.
"My memorandum is not a statement of reasons to justify a for-cause termination", he said.
A grand jury in Virginia recently issued a subpoena for records related to Flynn's business, The Flynn Intel Group, which had been paid more than US$500,000 (NZ$721,000) by a company owned by a Turkish American businessman close to top Turkish officials, sources said.
Trott says Maryland Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings asked something like, "So you woke up one morning and made a decision to write a memo?"
The investigation into potential ties between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign is now looking into a possible cover-up, according to McClatchy.
The White House doubled down on that stance Friday, with Spicer saying Comey's investigation was harming U.S.
One hot topic of conversation in Washington these days is whether conservatives in town are preparing to abet his downfall - tired of the Trump-related drama and longing for the comparative normalcy of a Mike Pence presidency.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was returning to the Capitol on Friday for another closed-door session, this time with all members of the House.
