Bombshell memo on Trump

It's worth noting that Trump has complained about leaks in the press quite frequently, both while in office and during his time on the campaign trail.

He said it "shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not unified country" and is "a very, very negative thing".

"At this point, the Republican Congress is trying to find a way to get to the bottom of the allegations about the ties between members of the Trump Administration and Russia", Dan Mahaffee, senior vice president and director of policy at the Center for the Study of Congress and the Presidency, told Xinhua. It is special. All over the world, no matter where you go, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is special. Trump fired Comey last week.

Putin also came to Trump's defense, offering to provide a written record of the conversation between Lavrov and Trump.

But calmness seemed far off.

Bradd Bostick, a Reynoldsburg, Ohio, resident who started a Bikers for Trump group after the president's inauguration in January, said he was not concerned about the recent controversies because "most of us do not believe anything we hear in the mainstream media".

President Donald Trump said Thursday he thinks the appointment of special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation is bad for the United States.

"The entire thing has been a witch hunt and there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign - but I can always speak for myself - and the Russians".

"Everybody, even my enemies, have said there was no collusion", Trump added, even though some Democrats have voiced concerns about possible collusion and suggested a thorough investigation was necessary.

Rosenstein was thrust into the spotlight last week when a memo he wrote was initially cited by the Trump administration as the rationale for firing FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the FBI's investigation of Trump-Russia contacts.

"The current state of relations is beneficial to neither side", he said, expressing hope for a re-evaluation of the situation that would lead to a "mutually-beneficial re-engagement". Despite the president's furious reaction, some fellow Republicans welcomed Mueller's appointment and expressed hopes it would restore some composure to a capital plunged in chaos.

Eggleston noted that because everything the White House does can get politicized, his job was to police what Obama could or couldn't say with respect to any law enforcement investigation - including cases investigated by state authorities involving black men fatally shot by police.

"I think the shot to the body is it's now considered a criminal investigation, and Congress' ability to conduct investigations into all things Russian Federation has been severely limited", Sen. Trump himself had already contradicted that explanation, telling interviewers earlier that he had already made a decision to dismiss Comey.

"No. No. Next question", Trump told a news conference when asked if he "in any way, shape or form" ever urged Comey, whom he fired on May 9, to close down the investigation into Michael Flynn.
