Trump asked Comey when he would dispel investigation rumors

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who served under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, will lead that investigation. "That gives me confidence and should give the American people some confidence".

Rosenstein had been put in charge of the probe as soon as he was confirmed because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself. On Fox News, Sean Hannity warned Wednesday of a "destroy Trump alliance" that is now "aligning to take down President Trump". He added, "I look forward to this matter concluding quickly". "We need the facts", Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said in reaction to the explosive reports of Trump's request to the now-sacked James Comey, coming on the heels of claims he shared USA secrets with Russian officials in the Oval Office.

The Russian leader also mocked the idea that Trump had shared secrets during the Oval Office meeting, calling the allegations "political schizophrenia".

WASHINGTON (AP) - Surrounded by multiplying questions, President Donald Trump complained Wednesday... On Thursday morning, Yahoo reported that Trump has remained in contact with Flynn following his departure from his national security adviser post.

"Trump feels really, really, really, bad about firing him, and he genuinely thinks if the investigation is over Flynn can come back", a White House official told The Daily Beast.

NBC News has verified information from the original New York Times report with two separate sources.

Manafort was the chairman of the Trump campaign until he was sacked when news reports emerged about cash payments he had received from pro-Putin entities.

Flynn not cooperating in Russian probe: GOP Senator
Alptekin told the AP in an email that he is not a target of the investigation and has not been contacted by authorities. Flynn's attorney Robert Kelner did not immediately respond to phone messages and emails seeking comment.

Anthony Weiner cries while apologizing in court
Weiner will appear in federal court in New York Friday to enter the plea deal, but may have to wait several weeks for sentencing. The outspoken politician resigned from Congress in 2011 after an errant tweet ended up exposing his sexting habits.

Comey, who was leading the FBI's investigation into Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election, including reported ties to the Trump campaign, was sacked by Trump last week. 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. He said he already knew Comey would be fired before he wrote a controversial memo that the White House initially used as its justification for the dismissal.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi cautiously praised the appointment of Mueller, calling it a "first step", but insisting "it can not be the last". She noted that Mueller will still report to the "Trump-appointed leadership of the Justice Department" and "cannot take the place of a truly independent, outside commission that is completely free from the Trump Administration's meddling".

And so Democrats' clamour for Republicans to stand up to the president and appoint a special prosecutor to investigate him does not resonate.

He said he respected the special counsel appointment but also said it "hurts our country terribly".

"I think that impeachment is an obvious possibility, but we're not almost there yet", Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said on MSNBC.

Rosenstein, the No. 2 Justice Department official, named Mueller amid mounting pressure in Congress for an independent investigation beyond existing FBI and congressional probes into the Russian Federation issue.

Russian Federation has denied United States intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favour.
