Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told President Trump last week at the White House that he "isn't a target of any part" of the Mueller probe, Bloomberg reports, citing two people familiar with the matter. CNN is reporting separately that Rosenstein told Trump "that he's not a target in the investigation of his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen," specifically.

But, but, but: Trump isn’t under investigation now, but that could change. "Trump may not officially be a target," an official told Bloomberg, "but Mueller hasn’t ruled out making him one at some point in the future."
