At the time, CNNreported that a former White House aide called Schiller, who became Trump's head of security in 2005, the "most underestimated person on Trump's team".
When Comey's firing was announced, the White House instead released Rosenstein's memo, which sharply criticised Comey's handling of the probe into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server while serving as secretary of state.
After Comey was sacked in May, Trump has said he was thinking of "this Russia thing" when he chose to fire Comey, who had been leading the bureau's investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, said he didn't understand why the Trump administration didn't want transparency in this case. However, the biggest revelation that came out of the interview involved Former FBI Director Jim Comey. After vetting this letter with his attorneys, the President was advised NOT to send it. In a memo, the White House says it "cannot defend the Director's handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton's emails", and does "not understand his refusal to accept the almost universal judgment that he was mistaken".
Despite Trump knowing that firing Comey would not end the investigation, and despite Sessions and Rosenstein wanting to fire Comey also, and Kushner and Miller advising him to, Mueller made a decision to look into potential obstruction of justice.
Two days after Mr. Comey's testimony, Mr. Rosenstein had a meeting with a White House lawyer at the Justice Department, where Mr. Rosenstein expressed concern about how the F. B. He also told a group of Russians that Comey was a "nut job" whose absence would mean that the president wouldn't face any more pressure over the Russia investigation.
What makes matters worse for Trump is that during the campaign, he claimed that he "knows nothing about Russia" and had "no loans" and "no deals" there.

Mr Trump and his aides gave multiple justifications for Mr Comey's dismissal in the days after he was sacked.
The report also reveals that Jared Kushner and Stephen Miller had advised the president to fire Comey, during a weekend stay at the president's golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.
In his statement initially, Trump said he fired Comey while experiencing frustration at the FBI investigation of his campaign's alleged Russian Federation ties and at Comey's refusal to publicly exculpate Trump.
In an interesting coincidence, while Trump's lawyers are making the case that Comey isn't to be trusted, two Senate Republicans - Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen.
The case began after it was discovered Clinton had a secret server, and did not turn over all of the emails in it to the Federal Bureau of Investigation right away.
Importantly, the letter Trump and Miller penned together - and Comey's dismissal - did not occur in a vacuum.
