Comey Testimony Before Lawmakers in Doubt After Special Counsel Named

19 May 2017, 10:27 | Darnell Patrick

"Zero", he told the news conference, standing alongside Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos.

They also grilled him on the timeline of his controversial memo that Trump used as a rationale for sacking Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey last week, with two senators saying Rosenstein acknowledged he knew before writing his brief that the president was going to fire Comey. You might remember President Trump fired the last head of the investigation and previous FBI director James Comey on May 9.

That's right Jihye it seemed as if Mr. Trump was confident in the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel.

Senators said that Rosenstein steered clear of specifics while making clear that Mueller has wide latitude to pursue the investigation wherever it leads, including potentially criminal charges. Im fine with whatever people want to do.

Rosenstein briefed U.S. senators on Thursday, but made no public comments.

The news that Rosenstein knew about Comey's firing before he wrote the memo could make the deputy attorney general a witness in Mueller's investigation, the Times noted.

"FBI investigations are not fast, and Bob Mueller is unlikely to launch a particularly fast investigation", Graff told me in an interview Thursday.

"He answered a lot of questions but declined to answer a lot, as well", Durbin said.

Sens. Jim Risch, R-Idaho, and Dianne Feinstein of California, the second-ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, doubt that the same thing will happen this time.

Other senators who attended Rosenstein's briefing said that Rosenstein didn't address who asked him to write the memo.

Because it was a closed briefing, it's unclear exactly how Rosenstein described how he knew Trump would fire Comey.

Rosenstein threatened to resign from the Justice Department because of the explanation that White House officials were giving reporters about the firing, said a person close to the White House, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Trump cited displeasure with the FBI's Russian Federation probe as a factor in dismissing Comey.

Trump could have viewed Mueller's appointment on a negative note but Fox News' Eric Erickson thought the opposite and advised that the GOP should even rejoice over the appointment on many points.

The President also expressed surprise that he had not received bipartisan support for his decision to fire Mr Comey. He has served presidents of both political parties and, after taking the director job days before the September 11 attacks, oversaw the FBI's terrorism-fighting efforts over the next decade.

Flynn and other Trump campaign advisers were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the presidential race, Reuters reported on Thursday.

At his March confirmation hearing for the job of deputy attorney general, Rosenstein refused to commit to the appointment of a special counsel to oversee an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, saying he was aware of no requirement to recuse himself and had no first-hand knowledge of the probe anyway.

"If there is obstruction of justice, perjury or false statements made in connection with that investigation", Zeidenberg said.

Republican Senator John Cornyn said: "Clearly Russia was very much involved in trying to undermine public confidence in our elections". "It's now an active investigation, there's a special prosecutor in place, and I think we'll have a more hard time getting information for the intelligence committee".
