What to Know About Former FBI Chief Robert Mueller

President Trump said this afternoon: "As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know: that there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity". Reporters were called to a no-camera Justice Department briefing where it was announced that Mueller was being named as special counsel.

"Look at the way I have been treated lately, especially by the media", Trump told Coast Guard Academy graduates Wednesday in New London, Connecticut. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who would normally have the duty of appointing a special counsel, recused himself from the Russian Federation investigation in March following the revelation that he failed to disclose conversations with a Russian Federation ambassador to Congress. "In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country".

The Senate Intelligence Committee asked Comey to testify before the panel in public and in private.

"If the US administration finds it possible, we are ready to provide a recording of the conversation between Lavrov and Trump to the US Congress and Senate", Mr Putin said during a press conference.

"Comments such as these, emerging in the way they did, only remind us that every day public servants are reaching out to reporters to ensure the public is aware of the risks today to rule of law in this country", Brown continued.

"The president has the utmost respect for our law enforcement agencies, and all investigations", said the statement.

"A special prosecutor is the first step, but it can not be the last". Director Mueller will still be in the chain of command under the Trump-appointed leadership of the Justice Department.

Democrats demanded an independent commission to dig into his sacking of Mr Comey, but Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan cautioned against "rushing to judgment". Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz of Utah said late Wednesday that Mueller is a "great selection".

Representative Jason Chaffetz, Republican chairman of the House oversight committee, sent a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday requesting that it turn over all documents and recordings that detail communications between Mr Comey and Mr Trump. "Impeccable credentials. Should be widely accepted". In the 1990s, Democrats insisted that independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated former President Bill Clinton, overstepped his authority.
