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

"During his service as FBI Director for both President Bush and President Obama, Robert Mueller earned a reputation for independence and integrity, which are exactly the qualities needed to pursue the Russian Federation investigation to its conclusion", Alexander said.

Rosenstein knew James B. Comey would be fired as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation before he wrote a scathing memo laying out the case for the move, several senators who attended a closed-door briefing with the former US attorney from Maryland said Thursday.

"I believe it hurts our country terribly because it shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not unified country", Efe quoted Trump as saying.

"I think we'll have a more hard time getting information here for the intelligence committee", Republican Senator Ron Johnson said.

"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" he said.

"I'm fine with whatever people want to do", he added.

"We're going to have a director that's going to be outstanding".

Speaking at a joint press conference at the White House with Colombian President Juan Miguel Santos, Trump reiterated the phrase he used Thursday morning on Twitter and again denied his campaign colluded in Russia's cyberattacks against Hillary Clinton and the Democrats during last year's election.

Graham said the decision to appoint a special prosecutor is good news for the next FBI director, because "now that you have a special counsel, the new FBI director doesn't have to worry about riding herd over an investigation of the man who appointed him".

Rosenstein learned about Trump's plan on May 8, Durbin said.

He called the probe a "witch hunt" and "totally ridiculous" Thursday afternoon. But Trump's claim ignored impeachment efforts and blistering verbal attacks on previous presidents and other political leaders.

Trump is leaving today for his first foreign trip, to the Mideast and beyond, which aides hope can have the effect of refocusing a White House in disarray.

Comey succeeded him, appointed by Obama.

Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi said an independent commission to investigate the Russian Federation matter was still needed to guard against White House interference. Some Democrats grew impatient with Rosenstein, arguing that he needed to appoint a special prosecutor or step down from the job he has occupied only since the end of April.

Rosenstein and Attorney-General Jeff Sessions met with Trump May 8, when the president asked them to put into writing their thoughts on Comey.

The Senate Intelligence committee has taken the lead on the congressional Russian Federation investigation, while other committees, such as Graham's subcommittee and the Senate Judiciary, House Intelligence, and House Oversight committees, have also requested documents and held hearings on the issue.

The Senate Intelligence Committee and House Government Oversight Committee have each requested Comey testify before their panels. "What I have determined is that based upon the unique circumstances the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command".
