Pelosi herself has always been a target of Republican criticism.
"As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity", Trump said in a brief statement Wednesday.
Comey associates this week revealed the existence of a memo Comey wrote after his February 14 meeting with Trump in which he says the president asked him to shut down the FBI investigation into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. "We'll figure out on General Flynn what the next step, if any, is".
Chaffetz, also appearing on NBC's "Today" show, further commented on a New York Times report that Flynn had told Trump's transition team he was under investigation for working for Turkey during the presidential campaign, but was still named national security adviser. But he told reporters Thursday in Cyprus that he doesn't understand what the "secret" was, since the USA introduced a ban on laptops on airlines from some Middle Eastern countries two months ago.
Rosenstein was originally invited by the two Senate leaders, Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Democrat Chuck Schumer of NY, to explain Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.
Texas Republican Mike Conaway and California Democrat Adam Schiff say they will continue to work with the FBI as the investigation moves forward.
"That goes to the office of the Director of National Intelligence". That's according to the panel's chairman, Republican Sen. Burr told reporters Thursday that Flynn's lawyer informed the panel he will not abide by a subpoena for private documents. "There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign".
Flynn was ousted earlier this year from his senior administration job.
US President Donald Trump lashed out at the appointment of a special counsel to investigate accusations that his campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 US election, tweeting this morning that it is "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!"
Hours after issuing a more muted official statement in coordination with aides, the President took to Twitter to portray himself as unfairly victimized by the probe.
"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special (counsel) appointed", Trump tweeted.
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.
President Donald Trump said Thursday he did not ask FBI Director James Comey to end his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. But that changed on Wednesday evening when Rosenstein announced that he had appointed another former FBI director, Robert Mueller, to conduct an independent investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 campaign.
Mueller will have sweeping powers and the authority to prosecute any crimes he uncovers.
Once again, Trump's tweets on Thursday saw him stake out a radical departure from the official White House line on an important issue, a habit that has repeatedly undermined his press operation in recent days, and made it even more hard for his administration to move on from a string of self-imposed crises.
It immediately escalated the legal stakes - and the potential political damage - for a president who has tried to dismiss the matter as partisan witch hunt and a "hoax".
But Trump himself has already said that he was going to fire Comey regardless of any recommendation by the Justice Department. Asked if the appointment of a special counsel would delay the investigation, committee Chair Sen.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly vowed to instruct a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton if he won. For now at least, the Russian Federation probes are the purview of Mueller and the congressional Intelligence committees.
