Trump says, speaking for himself, there was no collusion with Russia

On a day of fast-moving developments, the house of representatives intelligence committee announced that it, too, had asked for documents, in this case from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the justice department.

"I can confirm that this is false", he tweeted about Trump's statement.

He also pledges to never stop fighting for the people and issues that are important to the country's future.

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, echoed the revelation about Comey's firing when he emerged from the briefing, saying that while Rosenstein wouldn't go into detail, he said the president declared on May 8 "that he was going to fire Comey.on May 9, [Rosenstein] wrote his memo".

The top members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have invited former FBI Director James Comey to testify publicly.

Sen. Charles Grassley, the chairman of the committee, and Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein wrote Comey on Wednesday. In the memo, Rosenstein criticized Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

A date has not been set for the public hearing.

When asked about whether he pushed Comey, the man he fired earlier in the month, to end the Russian Federation investigation, Trump was firm and quick to reply: "No, no".

Trump, speaking in a joint press conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, called the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel to the investigation on Russia's potential election tampering - a move, he said, he respected - as part of "a witch hunt" against him and his administration.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said the appointment was consistent with his goal of ensuring that "thorough and independent investigations are allowed to follow the facts wherever they may lead". "Russia's fine", Trump said.

Trump has repeatedly slammed the FBI and congressional investigations as a "hoax" and blamed disgruntled officials at intelligence agencies for leaking information related to the probes.

Not quite everybody. While Trump tweeted and voiced his indignation at the White House, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed an independent special counsel to lead a heightened federal Trump-Russia investigation the day before, briefed the entire Senate behind closed doors at the Capitol. Now Mueller will have almost unfettered access to witnesses and information, and the ability to bring criminal charges.

Reactions from Congress to Mueller's appointment were mainly positive, even though Republicans had dismissed an independent outside investigation as unnecessary and duplicative of what congressional committees already are doing.

Did he urge Comey at a February meeting to drop his probe of the Russian Federation connections of Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn?

She adds that "a special prosecutor is the first step, but it can not be the last. Director Mueller will still be in the chain of command under the Trump-appointed leadership of the Justice Department".

Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the Oversight Committee, calls Mueller a "solid choice", and commends Deputy Attorney General Ron Rosenstein for putting "our country and justice system first".

President Donald Trump says that the appointment of a special counsel for the ongoing investigation into his campaign's ties to Russian Federation "divides the country".

But Rep. Peter King of NY is expressing concern over the wide purview special prosecutors have. "I am on a fact-finding mission", he said on CNN.

The appointment Wednesday comes amid a growing Democratic outcry for someone outside the Justice Department to handle the politically charged investigation.
