According to former law-enforcement officials and others familiar with the probe, the newspaper said, counterintelligence agents had to decide whether Trump's actions posed a possible national security threat.

It was a tense time.

Law enforcement officials became so concerned by President Donald Trump's behavior in the days after he fired FBI Director James Comey that they began investigating whether he had been working for Russian Federation against us interests, The New York Times reported Friday. "Unlike President Obama who let Russian Federation and other foreign adversaries push America around, President Trump has actually been tough on Russian Federation". The overall investigation is looking into Russian election interference and whether Trump's campaign coordinated with the Russians.

The special counsel's team is investigating whether Russian Federation and the Trump campaign colluded during the 2016 presidential election and any obstruction of justice claims.

While similar suspicious were raised even during his presidential campaign in 2016, officials said that the probe couldn't be carried out then as they did not really have a plan on how go about it considering how sensitive the issue was.

"No evidence has emerged publicly that Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian government officials", The New York Times said.

The inquiry is part of Mueller's broader examination of how Russian operatives interfered in the 2016 election and whether any Trump associates conspired with them.

CNN also reported that investigators are examining whether conflicting public statements by Trump and his team would be considered an attempt to obstruct justice. He did not explicitly acknowledge the existence of the investigation of Trump to congressional investigators.

Friday's remarkable report is sure to ramp up the pressure for a White House already feeling the heat from months of investigations.

One of those biggest charges is onto Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who was sentenced to three years in prison for financial crimes and arranging hush money payments to two women who claimed to have affairs with Trump before the 2016 election.
