Rosenstein says he stands by memo criticizing Comey

20 May 2017, 02:08 | Melvin Schneider

But GOP lawmakers have grown increasingly anxious since Trump fired Comey, who had been leading the bureau's probe - and after Comey associates said he had notes from a meeting in which Trump asked him to shut down the investigation into the Russian Federation ties of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The Times said the document was based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office.

Mueller will now lead the ongoing Federal Bureau of Investigation probe into Trump's associates and senior Russian officials.

The AFP reported that the Russian president has a recording of an exchange between Trump and the Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov that he was "ready to provide" if necessary.

President Donald Trump has been narrowing a short list and interviewing candidates to replace FBI Director James Comey, whom Trump fired on May 9.

House members leaving a briefing by the deputy attorney general on the probe of connections between Russian Federation and Donald Trump's presidential campaign say they're frustrated at not getting answers.

The recently sacked intelligence official has agreed to the hearing amid growing concern over President Trump's ties to Russian Federation and his involvement in the ongoing the investigation into former National Security advisor Michael Flynn. "The investigation would have always continued, and obviously, the termination of Comey would not have ended it". The adviser under scrutiny is not named, but described as someone close to Trump.

Questions about the FBI's ongoing Russian Federation investigation dominated a joint press conference with Colombia President Juan Manual Santos.

On Thursday, as Senate lawmakers emerged from a private briefing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, one alluded to the investigation taking a new turn.

Unlike Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel appointed by a three-judge panel to investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton's real estate holdings in the 1990s, Mueller depends on the Justice Department for funding and he reports to Rosenstein, who was appointed by Trump.

"I came out of there knowing that I trust this deputy attorney general, that I trust this special counsel and while he didn't answer many questions, he had a clear reason for not answering", Cleaver said.

The memo is said to have been written by Mr Comey the day after Mr Flynn resigned. The Times had not seen the memo, which they said was unclassified, but parts of it had been read to their reporter.

Under this strategy, the sources said the administration would raise the issue in press conferences and public statements.

"No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly", he said.

Investigators into Russian meddling in the United States presidential elections are now also probing whether White House officials have engaged in a cover-up, according to members of Congress who were briefed Friday by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
