Trump heads overseas, turmoil in his wake

Trump heads overseas, turmoil in his wake

Rosenstein's appearance in the Senate was originally meant to allow him to explain why Trump abruptly fired FBI Director James Comey last week, but the focus changed when Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel Wednesday night. The president again raised that memo in a news conference just minutes after Durbin and McCaskill made their revelations.

"I think it's much better to have someone who served a Republican president and a Democratic president, George Bush and Barack Obama as the FBI Director, so well respected look into this", Klobuchar said.

"Notwithstanding my personal affection for Director Comey, I thought it was appropriate to seek a new leader", Rosenstein said in prepared remarks for appearances before House and Senate lawmakers that were released Friday by the Justice Department. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois), who also attended the Deputy AG's briefing, confirmed his colleague's claims, saying Rosenstein "knew the day before" but didn't feel he was pressured into writing the memo.

Some Democrats are calling for Trump's impeachment. Other left-leaning cable talking heads have added to the chorus.

First of all, whatever Mueller will find after the investigation will put an end to the case given the untarnished reputation he has on both sides of the fence. "So poor in fact that, I believe - and you'd have to ask him, because I don't like to speak for other people - but I believe that's why the deputy attorney general went out and wrote his very, very strong letter", Trump said.

Graham said that the nature of Mueller's investigation has hurt the Senate's ability to call witnesses in their counter-intelligence probe. But a spokesman for the senator later said that Flynn still has time to comply if he chooses to.

U.S. president Donald Trump has claimed he is the victim of an unprecedented "witch hunt" that "hurts our country terribly" in the wake of an independent probe into claims of Russian Federation links. I have confidence that he will conduct a fair and thorough investigation.

"The Congress has a very significant role, as does the special counsel", said Rep. Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Oversight Committee.

Democrats asserted that if Americans were to have faith in the impartiality of the Russian Federation investigation, then it must not be left in the hands of the FBI, which is meant to be an independent and non-political agency under the Justice Department.

He said Mueller was in New Orleans after Katrina to assist the local Federal Bureau of Investigation office that was flooded out, and whose employees lost loved ones and homes.
