"I wouldn't put much credibility into whatever Putin's notes are", Rubio said on Fox News.

Trump said in a statement after the Justice Department announcement he looked forward to a quick resolution. Regarding Clinton's sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky, a former White House intern, the proceedings stated: "President Clinton lied under oath in his civil deposition about his discussions with Ms. Lewinsky concerning her involvement in the Jones case".

Rep. Al Green, a Democrat from Texas, took to the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday morning to formally call for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. After the news broke of the Comey memo, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., stood in the chamber and said, "I say to all of my colleagues in the Senate - history is watching".

President Trump called the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his campaign's ties to Russian Federation a "witch hunt" that "hurts our country" Thursday in his first public, non-Twitter comments on the situation.

The White House has struggled since Comey's firing to explain the chain of events that led to it and who exactly made the decision.

The members of the Senate Judiciary Committee who sent the letters - Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), ranking member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) - asked McCabe to provide them with any documents "memorializing interactions [Comey] had with Presidents Trump and [Barack] Obama, Attorneys General [Jeff] Sessions and [Loretta] Lynch, and Deputy Attorneys General [Rod] Rosenstein, [Dana] Boente, and [Sally] Yates regarding the investigations of Trump associates' alleged connections with Russian Federation or the Clinton email investigation".

In Rosenstein's meetings with lawmakers, he reiterated the scathing critique laid out in his memo concerning Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, including Comey's July news conference announcing that the FBI would not recommend charges. Mr. Comey also needs to testify in open session ASAP.

During the lunch, Wittes said that Comey described at least two incidents that Comey regarded as the president trying to compromise him by demonstrating an image of closeness between them.

Asked what he thinks of the Trump presidency, Putin said it's up to the American people to judge and his performance can be rated "only when he's allowed to work at full capacity", implying that someone is hampering Trump's efforts.

Even as Trump reassured advisers like Spicer that their jobs were safe on Monday, he told other advisers that he knew he needed to make big changes but did not know which direction to go, or whom to select.
