Reacting to the appointment of a special counsel to probe his campaign's ties with Russia, US President Donald Trump on Wednesday said a thorough investigation will prove that no such collusion took place.
The president's latest tweet storm follows the Justice Department's announcement that it had appointed a special prosecutor, former FBI Director William Mueller, who is generally respected by both political parties, to investigate whether Trump aides were involved in what the U.S. intelligence community has identified as an attempt by Russian Federation to sway the 2016 presidential election in Trump's favour.
Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said after an all-senators briefing from Rosenstein that the deputy attorney general already knew Comey would be fired before he wrote a memo that the Trump administration initially used as justification for ousting the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief. "In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country". He also highlighted the "very, very strong recommendation" he got from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
"My decision is not a finding that crimes have been committed or that any prosecution is warranted". "Our nation is grounded on the rule of law, and the public must be assured that government officials administer the law fairly", he said.

United may target Oblak
The youngster has been targeted for his professional techniques by many worldwide clubs, including Manchester United and Chelsea. United would demand a world-record fee for a goalkeeper of £60million, if they decide to sell the 26-year-old.
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill generally welcomed the Justice Department action and praised Mueller for his integrity, but House and Senate Republican leaders said they would go on with their own investigations of the Russian Federation matter.
"We need the facts", House Speaker Paul Ryan, the top Republican in Congress, told reporters in reaction to the explosive reports of Trump's request to the now-sacked James Comey, coming on the heels of claims he shared United States secrets with Russian officials in the Oval Office. The addition of Robert Mueller as special counsel is consistent with this goal, and I welcome his role at the Department of Justice.
In his first on-camera remarks amid burgeoning scandals engulfing his White House, President Trump denied he asked then-FBI Director James Comey to scuttle an investigation into his former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
In a further, extraordinary twist to developments, President Vladimir Putin waded in to say Moscow could provide Congress with a record of Trump's controversial exchange with Russia's top diplomat and its ambassador to Moscow last week. "While this is an important step forward, we still need a bipartisan, independent commission to carry out a public investigation into Russia's interference in our election".
