President Trump believes that the appointment of a special counsel "hurts our country terribly", he said Thursday, a day after a special counsel was appointed to oversee the FBI investigation into Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, including any ties between Russia and Mr. Trump's campaign.
However, fellow Republicans expressed hopes the move would restore some calm to a capital plunged into chaos.

And House and Senate investigators had invited Comey back to Congress to explain what happened - although Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz declared on Twitter that he had trouble finding Comey to invite him to testify to the oversight committee he chairs.
