Trump Believes He's The Victim Of 'Witch Hunt' Amid Russia Probe

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in the East Room of the White House in Washington Thursday

Comey's firing was one in a series of jarring developments that culminated on Wednesday in the Justice Department's appointment of a special counsel to probe possible ties between Russian Federation and Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

Democratic Rep. Brad Sherman told reporters that it was a question Rosenstein faced more than 10 times. The comments mirrored a speech by Trump on Wednesday, before Mueller's appointment was announced, in which he said no politician in history "has been treated worse or more unfairly". "Zero", he said at a news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. "And I think this shows a very divided country". Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.) sought to clarify whether Mr. Comey was sacked shortly after asking for additional resources for the Russian Federation investigation, as reported by multiple news outlets. In the memo Rosenstein criticized Comey's handling of the high-profile Hillary Clinton email investigation and Comey's decision not to recommend charges in the case.

Senate Minority Whip Richard Durbin of Ill. walks on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, May 18, 2017, to attend a briefing of the full Senate by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein amid controversy over President Donald Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.

"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special councel [sic] appointed!" he wrote.

Trott says Maryland Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings asked something like, "So you woke up one morning and made a decision to write a memo?"

"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" added Trump.Democrats rejected Trump's characterization."This is a truth hunt", said Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar.Russia has denied USA intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favor.

The President issued a statement saying "A thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity".

"This is a truth hunt", said Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar.

Asked point-blank if he'd done anything that might merit prosecution or even impeachment, he said no and then added concerning the allegations and questions that have mounted as he nears the four-month mark of his presidency: "I think it's totally ridiculous".

The No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, said he was supportive of investigations in Congress but expressed concern about the "proliferation" of hearings.

That's according to several United States senators who met with Rosenstein Thursday afternoon in a secure room in the Capitol basement.

Trott says Rosenstein answered that he didn't want to interfere with the independent investigation that will now be run by former FBI chief Robert Mueller. Claire McCaskill and Dick Durbin.

The White House initially said last week that a letter Rosenstein wrote accusing Comey of missteps as Federal Bureau of Investigation director, including his handling of an election-year probe into Clinton's use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, was what prompted Trump to fire Comey.

It looks as if Trump isn't all that happy with how things have turned out.

Mueller is likely to be given effective control over what information the Justice Department shares with Congress about the probe and what requests it makes to Congressional committees to defer questioning sensitive witnesses or avoid publicizing potential leads in the investigation.
