Russia Responds to Trump Impeachment Question in the Most Russian Way Possible

The day after the Department of Justice appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to the congressional investigations into Democrats' claims of Russian interference in United States elections, Trump said he respected the decision, but added: "I think that divides the country".

"The documentation of Mr. Trump's request is the clearest evidence that the president has tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump's associates and Russian Federation", the newspaper said.

A number of Democrats have begun floating the idea of impeaching Trump in the wake of revelations that he asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Did he collude with Russian Federation in his campaign to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton?

"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" added Trump, who said in a speech on Wednesday that "no politician in history" had been treated worse or more unfairly than he has.

"This is a truth hunt", said Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar. Colombia is a key US ally in the war on drugs. Investors cited a supportive economic and corporate earnings backdrop for the modest rebound. In late morning trading, the benchmark S&P 500 was up about a third of a percent.

It also may give Trump's White House some relief from the barrage of questions from the media as Mueller takes the lead in an investigation that will mostly take place out of the public eye for now. The Mueller appointment will, at least temporarily, relieve some of the pressure on congressional Republicans who've publicly complained that the constant drama and serial controversies at the White House were hindering their ability to work on their policy agenda.

Donald Trump embarks on his first trip overseas as president today amid growing controversy at home over his firing of former FBI Director James B. Comey and the special counsel probe of Russian interference and potential connections to Trump aides.

Immediately after the meeting, Comey returned to his office and wrote a memo which revealed that Trump asked him "I hope you can let this go".

As well as being accused of obstructing the investigation into Flynn and possible collusion with Russia, this week saw reports that Trump had disclosed highly classified information in a meeting last week with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

Russian Federation has denied US intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favour.

It was widely reported that Russian Federation was hopeful of a resetting of the relationship between Moscow and Washington following Trump's election victory last November. "It's special", Trump said. Many lawmakers from both parties welcomed the appointment of Mueller by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as a way to restore confidence in government institutions and bring order to the probe.

Initial statements from the White House said Mr Trump had fired Mr Comey on the recommendation of the Justice Department because of his handling of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server.

Trump said he was about to name a replacement for Comey, another effort to settle the waters. "It feels like everything is up in the air, everything is chaotic, and there's some lack of leadership coming from the White House".

"There's a sense of drift and distraction", Republican Senator Susan Collins told MSNBC.

Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Democrat in the Senate, told CNN: "This president has no one to blame but himself for the mess that he's in".
