Mr Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation.

The Justice Department on Wednesday announced the appointment of attorney Robert Mueller as a special counsel to oversee the investigation of the Trump campaign's alleged ties to Russia along with the Russian government's interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"The comments attributed to President Trump cross a unsafe line", Reporters Committee Executive Director Bruce Brown said in a May 16 press release.

"No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can't let them get you down". Trump then reportedly expressed disdain for the news media leaking information and suggested to Comey that he consider putting reporters in jail if they release classified information.

Trump insisted that his administration has made "tremendous progress" since he took office on the fronts of jobs, border security, and the fight against ISIS, and that the allegations of collusion with Russian Federation are nothing but distracting. Adversity makes you stronger. "And the more righteous your fight, the more opposition that you will face".

A separate letter, addressed to acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, sought notes or memos written by Comey about conversations he had with senior White House and Department of Justice officials related to the Russian Federation investigation.

But most Republicans were able to avoid giving a definitive response about Trump's conduct because a memo Comey wrote about a meeting with the president hasn't surfaced publicly.

Sen. Charles Grassley, the chairman of the committee, and Democratic Sen.

He said he would give the Federal Bureau of Investigation a week and then "if we need a subpoena, we'll do it".

Trump is facing the deepest crisis of his presidency after reports Tuesday about Comey's memo.

The White House vigorously denied it all.

"While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr Comey or anyone else to end any investigation", a United States official said on condition of anonymity.

The intensifying drama comes as Mr Trump is set to embark on Friday on his first foreign trip, which had been optimistically viewed by some aides as an opportunity to reset an administration floundering under an inexperienced president.
