Former US, Arizona leaders support Mueller selection to lead Russian Federation election probe

19 May 2017, 10:38 | Darin Griffith

To hear Trump tell it, he wasn't anxious.

US President Donald Trump has said the appointment of a special counsel to investigate allegations that his campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election is "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history".

Rosenstein was returning to the Capitol on Friday for another closed-door session, this time with all members of the House.

"This won't be a partisan activity", said Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista), who spoke to reporters afterward.

As Siegel sees it, the stock-market rally of the past six months is because Trump's victory, along with the re-election of a GOP-controlled Congress, gives a leg up to traditional market-friendly GOP objectives such as tax reform and industry deregulation.

The president joined Colombian counterpart Juan Manuel Santos in a news conference Thursday. But several changed their mind after The New York Times reported that the President asked Mr Comey to drop an investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, according to a memo reportedly written by Mr Comey. "Everybody, even my enemies, have said there is no collusion".

However another answer on that subject seemed both more specific and perhaps ambiguous. Just this morning, Trump blasted off a tweet, arguing "This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!"

Mueller III's appointment as special counsel may actually be good news for this administration.

Mr Mueller's broad mandate gives him not only oversight of the Russian Federation probe, but also "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation".

Despite Mr Trump's declarations that there was no conspiracy, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said the Russian Federation investigation now appears to be considered criminal.

Even as he erupted anew, fellow Republicans expressed hopes the move would restore some calm to a capital plunged into chaos.

"We need to let this process play out", he said.

Trump says he's 'very close' to naming an FBI director
Trump has said he could name a successor before he departs Friday on his first overseas trip as president. Lieberman told The Hartford Courant he was secretly considered for jobs under former President George W.

Trump says he did not ask Comey for his loyalty
And on Friday, White House press secretary Sean Spicer refused to deny that Trump may have recorded his conversation with Comey. When the White House's defense of the move failed to meet his ever-changing expectations, Trump tried to take over himself.

"I think for months, well into 2018, we are going to see this administration hobbled by this investigation".

He told senators he had already known Mr Comey was getting fired even as he wrote the memo Mr Trump cited as a significant justification for the Federal Bureau of Investigation director's dismissal.

This news fire hose, a result of errors forced and unforced for Trump, can have consequences - for the president, for his party and the country.

Mr Trump referred to Mr Comey's appearance at a recent Capitol Hill hearing, after which the Justice Department ended up having to amend part of his evidence regarding last year's probe of Hillary Clinton's email practices.

"I believe it hurts our country terribly, because it shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country", Trump said in an on-the-record statement. "Because you look at all of the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side, that were saying such awful things about Director Comey".

Despite initially opposing the appointment of an independent counsel, Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday that the development "helps assure people and the Justice Department that they're going to go do their jobs independently and thoroughly, which is what we've called for all along".

The market gains are a particular relief to investors, coming a day after the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell nearly 373 points on news that President Trump reportedly tried to block an FBI investigation into a former aide's relationship with Russians.

"I can't comment on the Justice Department's efforts".

Overall, presidents typically get far more credit or blame for the state of the economy than they deserve, economists say.

But anyone hoping the appointment of a special counsel means the public will ultimately hear a full accounting of the investigation might be disappointed.

"I think that's an open question", said Democratic Senator Chris Coons of DE when asked whether Comey would appear before Congress, adding that it remained to be seen "how ongoing congressional investigations will be coordinated with the special counsel".
