Republicans and Democrats alike remain sceptical about Vladimir Putin's offer of help

Asked Thursday at a press conference if he had ever asked Comey to not investigate his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn, Trump issued a blanket denial: "No, no, next question".

A Gallup tracking poll put Trump's approval rating at a historically low 38 percent, even before the latest wave of scandals.

"Lavrov says media have reported that Trump told him that "'terrorists' are capable of stuffing laptops, all kinds of electronic devices, with untraceable explosive materials", information he says the administration revealed with the laptop ban.

By several senators' accounts, he contradicted Trump's statements that Rosenstein's written criticism of FBI Director James Comey had been a factor in Comey's recent firing by the president.

President Donald Trump lashed out on Thursday over his Justice Department's appointment of a special counsel to investigate possible ties between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, calling it "the single greatest witch hunt" in US history.

The intensifying drama comes as Trump is set to embark Friday on his first foreign trip, which had been optimistically viewed by some aides as an opportunity to reset an administration floundering under an inexperienced president.

USA stocks rallied back on Thursday after seeing their biggest drop in eight months the previous day on worries that the political turmoil could sideline Trump initiatives such as tax cuts that investors see as favouring economic growth.

USPresident Donald Trump denied any collusion with Russian Federation in the 2016 election but said on Thursday he spoke "for myself", leaving open for the first time the possibility that some of his staff may have been involved. Trump wrote, misspelling the word counsel as he referred to Democratic former President Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

"There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign, but I can always speak for myself, and the Russians - zero".

Considering the unique circumstances of this matter, Rosenstsein said a special counsel is necessary in order for the American people to have full confidence in the outcome.

Across town, Rosenstein was briefing the Senate about his decision to appoint former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the independent Trump-Russia probe. Mueller will have sweeping powers, including the right to bring federal charges. Despite the president's furious reaction, some fellow Republicans welcomed Mueller's appointment and expressed hopes it would restore some composure to a capital plunged in chaos. "You can't let them get you down", he said.

"Special Counsel Mueller will have all appropriate resources to conduct a thorough and complete investigation, and I am confident that he will follow the facts, apply the law and reach a just result", he added.

Said Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina: "He's probably glad to leave town, and a lot of us are glad he's leaving for a few days".

The person who described the Comey memo to the AP was not authorized to discuss it by name and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"That was a poor, poor performance", Trump said. "And then on top of that, after the Wednesday performance by Director Comey, you had a person come and have to readjust the record, which many people have never seen before, because there were misstatements made".

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Moscow did not have official contacts with Trump's team during the electoral campaign.

Here are five points you should know about this Trump turmoil and the mess lingering over United States politics in order to be able to understand how it can hurt stock markets.
