Deputy AG to brief Senate on Mueller nod; Trump unhappy with move

  • President Donald Trump speaks during the United States Coast Guard Academy Commencement Ceremony in New London Connecticut U.S. May 17 2017

"And I think it's a very, very negative thing". Philip Mudd, former deputy director of the FBI's national security branch under Mueller, explained to CNN: "Every American who thinks that this is a moment of turmoil, whether they like the president or not, should breathe easy tonight: Robert Mueller is solid ground".

That would make it harder to subpoena records of people who could be subjects of the investigation, he added.

In a tweet President Donald Trump described the situation as "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history".

Trump later revealed to NBC News that he thought of Comey as a "showboat" and "grandstander", and felt his inquiry was part of a "made-up story" - contradicting what his top aides had told reporters earlier in the week that the firing had nothing to do with Russian Federation.

The U.S. Justice Department has appointed former FBI director Robert Mueller as special counsel to oversee the agency's investigation into alleged meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Kremlin and President Donald Trump's campaign.

House panel seeking documents about Comey ouster
Chaffetz's letter to Interim FBI Director Andrew McCabe requested any records the bureau has related to communications between Comey and Trump.


House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has offered Rosenstein a similar invitation to address House members.

Mueller takes the reins after FBI Director James Comey was sacked by Trump last week as he investigated potential ties between Trump's campaign and Russian officials.

In the meantime, the Senate Intelligence Committee will continue our investigation into Russia's attempts to influence elections. A few hours after their meeting, the question became a moot point. That justification was viewed with skepticism by many until Trump said in an interview days later he fired Comey because of his continued probe into Russian interference and collusion in the 2016 campaign and would have fired him regardless of what the Department of Justice recommended.

"This is a critical first step, but I still believe we need an independent commission", said Bennet in a statement.

Leaders of the Senate judiciary and intelligence committees have requested Federal Bureau of Investigation and White House records regarding the conversation between Trump and Comey, and Comey has received an invitation to address Congress to explain the matter. "It's a fait accompli".
