Rosenstein faces Senate day after upending political world

That's the word from Sens. 2 Democrat in the Senate. "Whatever the motivation for the investigation, Mueller is sufficiently well-respected that it likely won't be 'just for show.'" Daria explained that Rosenstein made a really good choice in appointing Mueller to special counsel. In addition, Comey wrote a memo detailing Trump's comments to him in February saying "I hope you can let this go", referring to the Flynn probe, a source who saw the memo said on Tuesday.

Democratic Sens. Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Christopher Murphy of CT backed up Durbin's account of the briefing.

The announcement, the latest in the shock-a-day Washington saga, was made by deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

"I think Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein responded to the extent he thought appropriate within the context of the investigations that are ongoing", he said.

President Trump disputes Comey's account.

Mueller was appointed Wednesday by Rosenstein, who had faced criticism as the author of a memo that preceded Comey's firing.

President Donald Trump hosts Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in the Oval Office on Thursday. Joe Lieberman, former Oklahoma Gov. Trump's response was "He is".

According to an Associated Press report, Trump interviewed former Connecticut Sen. FILE - In this May 8, 2017, file photo, then-FBI Director James Comey speaks to the Anti-Defamation League National Leadership Summit in Washington.

Several attendees posted excerpts online.

The committee announced Thursday that Brennan will appear Tuesday at an open session.

Trump has never been one to shy away from prejudging the outcome of investigations.

President Trump also ripped any idea his actions since taking office might be impeachable.

Pelosi herself has always been a target of Republican criticism. "Even the democrats frankly said they want to see the president get a little bit of space and a little bit of patience, they still want to see if he can deliver on some of his other promises. this is not issue number one here and certainly not eroded support among trump's core base".

Special Counsel Part of Biggest 'Witch Hunt' in US History
Manafort is Trump's former campaign chairman, and has been an important focus of the United States investigation of Trump's associates and Russian Federation.

In a statement, Mueller said "I accept this responsibility and will discharge it to the best of my ability". In addition, we trust Mueller will find a way to coordinate with investigations already underway by the House and Senate intelligence committees to ensure those will proceed as well. He said this was not a surprise, as Flynn had been giving the committee radio silence on previous requests even before the subpoena was issued last week. "We'll figure out on General Flynn what the next step, if any, is".

"Nixon never publicly threatened people with his tapes, because he knew it would backfire on him", said Hughes, whose areas of expertise include secret USA presidential recordings. But he told reporters Thursday in Cyprus that he doesn't understand what the "secret" was, since the US introduced a ban on laptops on airlines from some Middle Eastern countries two months ago.

"And he said that ever since, the President had been trying to be chummy in a fashion that Comey felt was created to absorb him into Trump's world - to make him part of the team".

By Wednesday, leaders from the Senate intelligence and judiciary committees had sent requests to both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the White House for all records pertaining to Comey's conversations with Trump. At this point, however, Scalise affirms that the House intelligence committee will continue doing what it's been doing.

Cato's Pilon said Mueller's investigation would determine whether the facts in the investigation warranted prosecution. Richard Burr of North Carolina.

The plan was eventually approved by the Trump administration, but not until after Flynn had been fired.

Russian Federation has denied USA intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favor.

Flynn was ousted earlier this year from his senior administration job.

The U.S. president tweeted Thursday morning branding the probe into possibly Russian collusion with his campaign the "single greatest witch hunt" in political history. Trump later deleted and retweeted that statement to correct the spelling of "counsel". He did not provide examples or evidence of any alleged "illegal acts".

The White House says an investigation will prove there was no collusion.

The appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel overseeing the federal government's Russian Federation investigation has dramatically raised the legal and political stakes and put Trump's young presidency in unsafe waters just four months after he was sworn into office.

The special counsel is also authorized to prosecute any crimes unearthed by the investigation. "It is my honest hope and expectation that the work being done by congressional committees and the special counsel at the Department of Justice will yield the full and verifiable answers I have called for, and that the American people deserve".
