Democrats Slam Trump's Criticism of Stepped-up Russia Probe

Jason Chaffetz Republican chairman of the House oversight committee said he’s going to ask the Justice Department to turn over all memos written by former FBI director James Comey about his past meetings with President Trump Can Trump Be Impeached For Obstruction Of Justice? Congressman Calls For Removal Process On House Floor

"President Trump again is demonstrating his contempt for the rule of law", he said.

Trump emphatically said "no" when asked during a joint news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in the White House's East Room.

It was Trump's first time taking questions since his Justice Department named a special counsel to probe Russia's involvement in the 2016 election. "There was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity". I think it divides the country, I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things.

Trump called talk of potential criminal charges or impeachment "totally ridiculous". "Congress must also do its job and vote to establish a non-partisan commission to provide the American public with a full picture of the Russian interference in our elections so we can take all necessary measures to protect the integrity of our democracy".

"I think it is totally ridiculous". "Sessions wanted a memo on Comey's sins, and Rosenstein felt he had to oblige his boss... as long as he didn't have to expressly say something he didn't believe", Columbus wrote, adding that Rosenstein never recommended that Comey be fired.

After Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for the latter's handling of Russia's meddling role in U.S. election and after Comey claimed that Trump had asked him to drop the probe into his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's Russian Federation connection, the Trump Administration and the White House faced a barrage of questions.

Trump's push back contrasted sharply with the near universal welcome in Washington for Mueller, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director picked for the special counsel post Wednesday by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Ben Cardin, speaking to WBAL News Now Wednesday morning, who said both the special counsel and an independent commission (like the one established following the September 11 attacks) would be needed to give the public a full picture of what happened and how to keep it from happening again, in addition to the prosecution of criminal wrongdoing.

President Donald Trump tweeted Thursday morning that he is being subjected to what he called "the single greatest witch hunt" in US history, following the announcement of a special counsel to lead an inquiry into possible ties between his campaign and Russian officials. "And the best sign that he will need that grit is Donald Trump's tweet about [a] witch hunt".

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

On Wednesday, Mr Trump was quoted in a White House statement as saying: "I look forward to this matter concluding quickly".

"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign and the Obama administration, there was never a special counsel appointed", Trump tweeted.

The President's adoption of the role of a victim has been a potent political weapon before and he has frequently used it to position himself against the Washington establishment, including the media which he uses as a foil in the absence of an easily identifiable political enemy, like Hillary Clinton.

On Wednesday, Trump complained in the middle of a U.S. Coast Guard Academy commencement speech that he has been "treated worse" than any politician "in history". "You can't let them get you down, you can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".
