The move comes after reports that the President asked former FBI director James Comey to drop the ongoing investigation of Michael Flynn, a national-security adviser. "With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!". She scoffed at Trump's claim that he's been treated "more unfairly" than any politician in history, saying Thursday, "Get some thick skin, OK?"
The same pattern was in evidence when he fired FBI Director James Comey last week then used a television interview to suggest he acted out of frustration with the FBI's Russian Federation probe - even though his team spent several days saying the ousting of the bureau's director had nothing to do with that issue.
House and Senate investigators probing Russia's ties to the campaign of President Donald Trump promised Thursday they would continue on the same track amid questions of whether the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller would curtail their work. The show's hosts said that during those investigations, there were no calls for impeachment or special counsels.
"And there is no collusion between, certainly myself and my campaign". We urge him to nominate someone with a profile similar to Mueller's, an experienced hand in law enforcement who comes from outside the world of politics and is respected by both parties.Once that's done, it might be possible to focus on some other issues for a while.We applaud Rosenstein for making a decision that could not have been easy, considering that he was appointed by Trump.

The White House, however, said initially that it was Rosenstein's memo on May 9 that led to Mr. Trump's decision to fire Comey last week. Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) of Salem - home to arguably the greatest actual witch hunt in American history. "I am on a fact-finding mission", he said on CNN. "And so, you've got the Intelligence Committee looking at it, and you will have the Mueller investigation going on, and it's the Mueller investigation that would bring forward solid evidence on which you could base a criminal case and indict someone".
President Trump has insisted he is not the one under investigation, but that could easily change.
