Earlier in May, Trump and White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller reportedly wrote a longer draft that reportedly made it clear that the president had chose to fire Comey before any consultation.
Mueller is investigating whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey, who initially led that probe as FBI director, and by reportedly asking Comey earlier in the year to quash an investigation into Michael Flynn, his former national security adviser.
Mueller has reportedly been probing whether Trump could be charged with obstruction of justice if it can be proven that he fired Comey in order to derail the Russian Federation investigation before it could turn up anything that might have been harmful to the president or any of his associates.
When James Comey was ousted as Federal Bureau of Investigation director in May, many blamed Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who wrote a memo faulting Comey's leadership at the police agency.

The letter the president ultimate sent to Comey was composed deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein. Trump told aides at the time he was upset Comey wouldn't publicly say whether or not he was under investigation. Trump legal team has offered up dubious reasoning for why Comey's firing was legal by suggesting that Trump has the power to hire and fire anyone while ignoring motive and that James Comey is not a reliable witness.
Rosenstein, in a statement to Congress, has said that he learned on May 8 of Trump's plans to fire Comey, and that he agreed with the decision.
Instead of using the directive Miller penned, a separate letter written by Rosenstein and focused on Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server was sent to the FBI director when he was dismissed.
