Majority believe Trump fired Comey to hinder Russian Federation investigation

On Wednesday, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to preside over the investigation, which will certainly include Flynn.
But the meeting, which was requested last week after Comey's surprise firing, did not provide senators much new information, largely because of concerns Rosenstein had about disclosing anything that could impact the ongoing federal investigation.
Trump said that Comey "was very unpopular with most people" and said that he was expecting more widespread praise for the firing.
Later, the president claimed he had fired Mr Comey after deciding that the FBI investigation into his campaign's possible ties to Russian Federation was baseless.
President Donald Trump said Thursday that he never asked former FBI Director James Comey to end the bureau's investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn's foreign contacts and payments.
"No. No. Next question", Trump interrupted tersely. He added that he was thinking of the "Russia thing" when he did so. "Because you look at all of the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side, that were saying such awful things about Director Comey", he said.
Trump said later, however, that he had been thinking about "this Russian Federation thing" when he fired Comey, whom he called a "showboat" and a "grandstander" in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt last Thursday.

Former asst. special counsel: Don't expect public updates
Congressional leaders have emphasized that House and Senate investigations will continue irregardless of other investigations. In naming Robert Mueller , the United States deputy attorney general said it was in the public interest to pick an outsider.
"I rise today Mr. Speaker to call for the impeachment of the President of the United States of America for obstruction of justice".
That move, along with several after it, however, appears to have done the opposite.
In his first press conference since he fired Comey, Trump defended his decision to do so, saying he thought it would actually draw bipartisan praise.
The appointment of Mueller as special counsel will raise the intensity of the investigation and make it less vulnerable to political interference.
After one answer on the matter, he said it is important that it be put behind the country so Washington can focus on his domestic agenda. "So, we want to get back and keep on the track that we're on, because the track that we're on is record-setting". "So poor, in fact, that I believe...that's why the deputy attorney general went out and wrote his very, very strong letter". "Everybody thinks so. And again, we have to get back to working our country properly so that we can take care of the problems that we have".
Trump also said he would announce his pick to succeed Comey soon and told reporters in the Oval Office with Santos just before their joint news conference that 2000 Democratic vice presidential nominee and former Connecticut Sen.
