Former asst. special counsel: Don't expect public updates

19 May 2017, 10:59 | Marion Schneider

According to multiple media reports, Mr Comey wrote a memo detailing Mr Trump's comments to him in February saying: "I hope you can let this go", referring to the Flynn probe.

Mr Rosenstein told senators that he knew Mr Comey would be fired before he wrote his letter, Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill said.

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.

Bill Nelson: "Bob Mueller has the experience to conduct a thorough investigation". "And numerous questions he declined to answer came down to his concern of whether he might interfere with the investigation by Robert Mueller".

Moments before Mr Trump weighed in on Twitter, Democratic Senator Joe Manchin welcomed the special counsel investigation and said it was important to get facts in the Russian Federation probe.

On Tuesday, The New York Times reported that when Trump and Comey met earlier in the White House, the president brought up the investigation into former Trump national security advisor Michael T. Flynn, who had resigned over his work for Turkey. Some said they are uncertain whether the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation will be able to subpoena documents and witnesses, given that Mueller's effort is likely to be seeking the same evidence.

"I think that opportunity has been lost, maybe for the greater good, but there are a lot of people in that room who were shocked that when a special counsel has been appointed, that Congress has limitations on what we can do".

"Congress has been pretty much sidelined".

However, as part of the potentially criminal focus of the Justice Department's investigation, there may be no more open congressional hearings.

"I never got to ask my question specifically about that", Graham said.

Donald Trump is no stranger to lawyers - he's employed them for the thousands of lawsuits he's faced over his decades as a businessman - but it seems that he may need to hire one once more. That's something that, perhaps inadvertently, Graham nodded to.

"And we have very important things to be doing right now - whether it's trade deals, whether it's military, whether it's stopping nuclear".

Democrats disagree. Virginia Sen.

In naming Robert Mueller, the United States deputy attorney general said it was in the public interest to pick an outsider.

Congressional leaders have emphasized that House and Senate investigations will continue irregardless of other investigations. Sen. "Nothing really has changed". This week it was also learned that Comey wrote a memo after a meeting with the president detailing Trump's request to drop his investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, a key figure in the Russian Federation affair.

Trump later said he meant to fire Comey regardless of the Justice Department's advice, and that he had the FBI's probe into alleged Russian election interference in mind when he did so.

Russian Federation has denied U.S. intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Mr Trump's favour.
