Kenny Thornton | 20 May, 2017, 02:45

In a scheduled press conference following a meeting of congressional Republicans on Capitol Hill, the speaker of the House of Representatives said:"Our response is to be responsible, sober and to focus only on getting the facts".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is scheduled to meet privately with all members of the Senate today to discuss his role in the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey last week.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee during the annual open hearing on worldwide threats on March 12, 2013.

Amash, asked if the details of the Comey memo were true, said, "Yes", that he would support impeachment if they were true.

Mr Lieberman was among four candidates Mr Trump interviewed at the White House on Wednesday. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) told The Hill , potentially voicing the concerns of other members.

"It is obvious that there are some people out there that want to harm the president", Mr Ryan told reporters.

Former Attorney General Sally Yates warned the White House in January that Flynn misrepresented his conversations with Russia's USA ambassador, Sergey Kislyak, leaving Flynn vulnerable to blackmail.

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the appointment of Mueller on Wednesday, following US media reports earlier this week about an attempt by Trump in February to end an FBI investigation of former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Republicans in Congress are trying to project a business-as-usual approach.
