Trump also said he was close to selecting a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director to replace James Comey, who he fired last week, and that former senator and one-time Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Lieberman was among the top candidates. 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". But Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said Comey should still appear before congressional committees that have invited him to testify. The show's hosts said that during those investigations, there were no calls for impeachment or special counsels.
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".

Russian Federation has denied USA intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favour.
Trump went on to dismiss as "totally ridiculous" the notion that he himself may have committed a prosecutable - or even impeachable - offense in recent months, as argued by some critics who suspect him of obstructing the FBI's probe.

Another Republican congressman, Carlos Curbelo, said if any wrongdoing was uncovered, "Those people should be held accountable".
She asked, "How did he spell witch hunt?" a reference to Trump's frequent misspellings on Twitter. "I would say up to and including the statements that President Trump allegedly made to Jim Comey, they would come within (Mueller's) purview".
"The chairman and I have talked about doubling down, that¹s the message we've conveyed to the staff", Warner said. "And so, you've got the Intelligence Committee looking at it, and you will have the Mueller investigation going on, and it's the Mueller investigation that would bring forward solid evidence on which you could base a criminal case and indict someone". One of the attendees, speaking on condition of anonymity, described Rosenstein as anxious and nervous and said he drank multiple glasses of water "and spilled one".
According to Merriam-Webster dictionary's website, the first written use of the term "witch hunt" dates to a December 1878 edition of the Tamworth Herald, a newspaper in England. Not long ago the White House was giving people the impression that Rosenstein had a lot to do with the decision to fire Comey, given that he wrote a memo outlining missteps by Comey that could be used to justify the director's dismissal.
