Originally, the Trump White House claimed that Comey was sacked based on a recommendation from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Sen.
"I fully support the decision to appoint former FBI Director Robert Mueller to oversee the ongoing investigation into Russian Federation", said U.S. Sen.
That would make it harder to subpoena records of people who could be subjects of the investigation, he added.
Colorado lawmakers roundly applauded the decision Wednesday evening to appoint former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian meddling into the 2016 election, though at least two Democrats said they wanted more.
One senior White House official who was present when Trump was informed of the Justice Department's decision to appoint Robert Mueller, a former prosecutor who served as the Federal Bureau of Investigation director from 2001 to 2013, as special counsel described Mr Trump as "unbelievably calm and measured".

Rosenstein was originally invited by the two Senate leaders, Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Democrat Chuck Schumer of NY, to explain Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.
"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" he followed up. And House and Senate investigators had invited Comey back to Congress to explain what happened - although Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz declared on Twitter that he had trouble finding Comey to invite him to testify to the oversight committee he chairs. Ben Cardin, speaking to WBAL News Now Wednesday morning, who said both the special counsel and an independent commission (like the one established following the September 11 attacks) would be needed to give the public a full picture of what happened and how to keep it from happening again, in addition to the prosecution of criminal wrongdoing. A few hours after their meeting, the question became a moot point.
In a statement about Mueller's appointment, President Trump said: "As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity".
But Painter, who has joined a lawsuit accusing Trump of violating the Constitution's Emoluments Clause, said the Justice Department is permitted to waive that requirement.
"This is a critical first step, but I still believe we need an independent commission", said Bennet in a statement. Rosenstein's "got the power to do it and you have to accept it and it doesn't matter what we think".
