Trump decries special prosecutor probing Russian Federation links

"No. No. Next question", Mr Trump told a news conference when asked if he "in any way, shape or form" ever urged Mr Comey, whom he fired on May 9, to close down the investigation into Michael Flynn.

That's right Jihye it seemed as if Mr. Trump was confident in the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel.

The goal of the special counsel probe, he said, was to determine whether there was collusion between Trump associates and Russian Federation to do so.

But, in a Twitter rampage the day after, Mr. Trump said it was the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history.

On another note, President Trump met with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos at the White House Thursday afternoon.

"I think for months, well into 2018, we are going to see this administration hobbled by this investigation".

Adding to the drama, Comey apparently kept exacting notes and memos describing his private meetings with Trump, evidence that could prove crucial if Mueller's investigation determines there was an effort by the White House - or Trump himself - to obstruct Comey's Russian Federation investigation.

The White House said the memo is not an accurate portrayal of the conversation between Mr Comey and the President.

Trump's position on the matter stands in direct contrast with the posture of nearly all lawmakers, both Democrats and Republicans, who have received Mueller's appointment favourably. "No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly".

The meeting came after a week of White House chaos in which Trump also was accused of divulging classified information during a White House visit by Russia's foreign minister and ambassador to the United States.

President Donald Trump's own actions made the appointment of a special counsel all but inevitable.

"Director Comey was very unpopular with most people", he suggested. Aram. the president's latest comments are in stark contrast to his earlier statement in which he said the probe will prove he's innocent. Democrats rejected Mr Trump's characterisation. "There (were) no facts laid out as to why you would change that, but appointing a special counsel has created, I think, a dynamic for Congress that's going have to be leery of crossing into Mr. Mueller's lane because the possibility of a criminal investigation". Graham noted that the creation of the special counsel by Rosenstein will likely impede the congressional investigations.

Senators said Mr Rosenstein steered clear of specifics while making clear Mr Mueller has wide latitude to pursue the investigation wherever it leads, potentially including criminal charges.

Rosenstein told senators that he knew Comey would be fired before he wrote his letter, Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill said. This week it was also learned that Comey wrote a memo after a meeting with the president detailing Trump's request to drop his investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, a key figure in the Russian Federation affair.

In some instances, special prosecutors have shown themselves to be loose cannons, causing more harm than doing good.
