After the discussion, Trump reportedly told his close advisers that "it's not right" to remove either Rosenstein or special counsel Robert Mueller because he's not the subject of their investigations, according to Bloomberg.

Comey then asked a colleague to tell The New York Times about the memo documenting his February 14 meeting with Trump, out of concern that the president may have tried to obstruct justice by asking the FBI to drop its investigation into Flynn.

United States President Donald Trump on Sunday refused a report which stated that he calls Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as "Mr. Peepers", and Attorney General Jeff Sessions as "Mr. Magoo,".

"They've been saying I'm going to get rid of them for the last three months, four months, five months", Trump said while in Florida. "And we have to get back to business".

Sessions' concerns were reportedly fueled by Trump taking a dim view of Rosenstein approving a recent Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on the president's personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Following news of the raids on Cohen home and office, Trump raged on Twitter claiming, "Attorney Client privilege is now a thing of the past". Because Jeff Sessions recused himself from all Russia-related matters after his own ties to Russian officials during the 2016 campaign were revealed, the authority to fire Mueller falls to Rosenstein. In fact, Trump and his team are working on a plan not only to fire him, but to "spit roast" the Deputy Attorney General. Dowd quit in part because he felt the President was taking less of his advice, sources told ABC News.
