"We have been so proud for centuries here to have free elections, fair elections, not influenced by foreign countries, not influenced by foreign powers, what this is really about is protecting that democracy", Klobuchar said.
Cato's Pilon said Mueller's investigation would determine whether the facts in the investigation warranted prosecution.
Mueller's investigation is only to see if criminal wrongdoing occurred. Chris Swecker is now retired from the FBI, but he says his former boss is the best person to lead this investigation. There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign. "I am on a fact-finding mission", he said on CNN. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who was part of the Trump campaign, recused himself from involvement after it became clear that he did not tell the entire truth during his confirmation hearing about his contacts with Russian Federation. J. Rosenstein exclusively to Robert S. Mueller III, his appointee as special counsel to the Justice Department's investigation.
"I'm fine with whatever people want to do", he added.
Trump doesn't plan to use Israel trip to announce embassy move
The low-cost Icelandic airline WOW announced Tuesday it would begin operating flights to Israel from the USA starting September. During last year's presidential campaign, Trump vowed to implement the Jerusalem Embassy Act upon winning the election.
Another beneficiary may be Rosenstein, who was criticised for doing the White House's bidding after a memo he wrote criticising Comey's handling of the Clinton email probe past year emerged as a justification for the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief's dismissal. All that was in the last seven days.
President Donald Trump seemed to muddle some of the competing explanations for firing FBI Director James Comey last week.
"No, no - next question", Trump said when asked at a White House news conference on Thursday (May 18) whether he pressured then-FBI Director James Comey in February to drop an investigation into former White House adviser Michael Flynn's dealings with Russian Federation and Turkey. Assuming he is given true independence, this appointment will remove some of the clouds that have hung over our system of justice during this deeply troubling situation. It supposedly comes from notes that Comey has been keeping of his dealings with Trump - notes the Times' reporter didn't even see.
Because it was a closed briefing, it's unclear exactly how Rosenstein described how he knew Trump would fire Comey. In the memo Rosenstein criticized Comey's handling of the high-profile Hillary Clinton email investigation and Comey's decision not to recommend charges in the case.

Last week, Trump generated a firestorm of criticism by firing FBI Director James Comey, who was leading the Russian Federation investigation.
"Public access to what happened is going to be very limited now because of special counsel", said Sen. "I have full confidence in former Director Mueller. And I thought that was something that was bad".
And they wanted the investigations already underway by the Intelligence committees in the House of Representatives and the Senate to keep going, a sentiment Republicans shared. "It is my hope that there will not be conflict between one another".
What's next in the Russian Federation investigation? The week's biggest bombshells
The disclosure jeopardized an important intelligence-sharing arrangement and hindered the ability to detect future threats. The New York Times revealed Tuesday that Israel was the ally that gave the US intelligence on the ISIS plot.
Thursday's meeting wasn't the first time Trump has privately addressed TV anchors and reporters. And it's because he is apparently all too aware of how much senators talk to the media.
