Republicans and Democrats alike remain sceptical about Vladimir Putin's offer of help

US President Donald Trump's beleaguered White House was rocked on Tuesday by a pair of explosive allegations - that he personally tried to quash an FBI investigation, and that he disclosed highly-classified information to top Russian officials.

Mueller also resigned Wednesday from his position at the law firm WilmerHale to take on the special counsel role. I look forward to this matter concluding quickly.

Comey - who Trump fired May 9 - wrote a memo memorializing a discussion with the president about Flynn and the FBI's investigation, two sources close to the former FBI director who had seen the memo confirmed to NPR.

"The comments attributed to President Trump cross a risky line", Reporters Committee Executive Director Bruce Brown said in a May 16 press release.

A separate letter, addressed to acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, sought notes or memos written by Comey about conversations he had with senior White House and Department of Justice officials related to the Russian Federation investigation. Our nation is grounded on the rule of law, and the public must be assured that government officials administer the law fairly.

"While the president has repeatedly expressed his view that General Flynn is a decent man who served and protected our country, the president has never asked Mr Comey or anyone else to end any investigation, including any investigation involving General Flynn", a White House statement said. She added that "a special prosecutor is the first step, but it can not be the last".

The Justice Department declined to explain the decision-making involved in the appointment.

Democrats demanded an independent commission to dig into his sacking of Mr Comey, but Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan cautioned against "rushing to judgment". Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement Wednesday that Mueller is "a respected public servant of the highest integrity".

Representative Jason Chaffetz, Republican chairman of the House oversight committee, sent a letter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on Tuesday requesting that it turn over all documents and recordings that detail communications between Mr Comey and Mr Trump.

"Mueller is a great selection. Impeccable credentials. Should be widely accepted". King said, "I'm anxious with all special counsels because there's no control over them and they can abuse their power". In the 1990s, Democrats insisted that independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated former President Bill Clinton, overstepped his authority.
