Donald Trump told Michael Flynn to "stay strong" amid growing scandal

The internal political struggle in the USA, including anti-Russian rhetoric as one of its manifestations, can harm the United States itself, Putin said.

Trump is both publicly and privately stewing about Rosenstein's decision to name a special counsel.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the Kremlin is prepared to provide a transcript of the conversation between Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and U.S. President Donald Trump last week at the White House. According to multiple news sources, one of those memos documents a conversation in which President Trump urged Comey to close the bureau's investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

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.

The Comey memo caused alarm on Capitol Hill and raised questions about whether Trump attempted to interfere with a federal investigation.

But O'Sullivan said it was not realistic to expect the Trump administration's justice department to charge the sitting President. "But I think we're in impeachment territory now for the first time".

Trump abruptly fired FBI director James Comey last Tuesday, supposedly because of his poor handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server.

"A lot of people don't do that", the Maryland Democrat said.

Defending Trump's actions, officials played down the importance and secrecy of the information, which had been supplied by Israel under an intelligence-sharing agreement, and Trump himself said he had "an absolute right" as president to share "facts pertaining to terrorism" and airline safety with Russian Federation. "Since he's left government, the old telephone number that I had for him, I haven't been able to get through".

Trump also said he "respects" the decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, but he didn't distance himself from his earlier description of the situation as "a witch hunt".
