Chances of Trump being impeached are low says investment bank

It also asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for any notes or memos written by Mr Comey about his communications with administration officials about the Russian Federation probe. He then called the Russian Federation investigation "the single greatest witch hunt in American political history".

"We need the facts", House Speaker Paul Ryan, the top Republican in Congress, told reporters in reaction to the explosive reports of Trump's request to the now-sacked James Comey, coming on the heels of claims he shared U.S. secrets with Russian officials in the Oval Office.

"The appointment of former FBI director and respected lawyer Robert Mueller as special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation is a positive development and will provide some certainty for the American people that the investigation will proceed fairly and free of political influence", Senator Richard Burr said and Mark Warner, chairman and ranking member of Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said.

"I think this shows a very divided country", Trump said at the luncheon. Learning the news less than a half hour before it was publicly announced, Trump dictated the statement that was soon released.

A discordant note was sounded by Republican Representative Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House of Representatives Oversight Committee, who praised Mueller's credentials, but said: "I don't think they should have appointed someone".

In 2011, he was asked by Democratic President Barack Obama to stay on for two more years. "While this is an important step forward, we still need a bipartisan, independent commission to carry out a public investigation into Russia's interference in our election".

Spicer: Yates as 'Strong Supporter' of Clinton, 'Political Opponent' of Trump
The media's bias was clear through their numerous attempts to get the White House to state that Yates' concerns were valid. Flynn's conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak caught the attention of Trump's own transition team.


Although Mueller will serve at the pleasure of Rosenstein, the job comes with independence and autonomy.

Reacting to the appointment of a special counsel to probe his campaign's ties with Russia, US President Donald Trump on Wednesday said a thorough investigation will prove that no such collusion took place.

"But Trump insisted on it", said historian Ledeen, co-author of Flynn's 2016 book The Field of Fight, their manifesto for defeating Islamic militancy.

Trump also changed his story once again about the circumstances surrounding Comey's firing, returning again to the White House's original rationale that he based his decision on Rosenstein's recommendation.

Trump's spokesman, Sean Spicer, said others being interviewed were acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, former Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating and former senior FBI official Richard McFeely.
