Senate Judiciary Committee also demands Comey memos, Trump tapes

One Republican official, who requested anonymity in order to speak freely, said after meeting Trump recently he did not think the president had a firm enough grasp on the nuances of the long-running Israeli-Palestinian conflict. "Believe me, there's no collusion".

This week, it was reported that Comey wrote a private memo describing a meeting in which Trump allegedly asked him to stop the Federal Bureau of Investigation review of Flynn, who was forced to resign earlier this year after the White House determined he had lied about his contacts with the Russians.

Trump's admission that he considered "this Russian Federation thing" when firing Comey, along with the reported Comey memo, point to the president impeding an on-going counterintelligence investigation. He said he already knew Comey would be fired before he wrote a controversial memo that the White House initially used as its justification for the dismissal.

Rosenstein did not reveal any more significant details during the unusual 90-minute closed briefing with most of the 100 senators, according to interviews with several senators afterward.

"There is a recording kept by a special person present at conversations", Mr Ushakov told Russian news agencies. "We're going to have a director that's going to be outstanding".

"To the contrary, prioritising American interests means strengthening alliances and partnerships that help us extend our influence and improve the security of the American people". "We need a law enforcement professional, not someone who's run for office before", she said.

Because of Mueller's wide scope in the Russian probe, Rosenstein referred several of the senators' questions to the new special counsel, frustrating numerous senators who wanted to learn more.

"I think all you're doing is just adding to the deficit, which is incredibly irresponsible to the children of this country", said Sen.

"He did acknowledge that he learned Comey would be removed prior to him writing his memo", Sen.

A spokesman said on the same day that "the president's economic agenda of serious tax reform, slashing burdensome regulations, rebuilding our infrastructure and negotiating fairer trade deals is adding jobs".

Rosenstein had been put in charge of the probe as soon as he was confirmed because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself. The Washington Post had reported on contacts he had with the Russian ambassador that he had not disclosed when asked about it during his Senate confirmation hearing. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.

"If the White House is looking for this global trip to turn the page, then it really needs to come off well without any balls dropped or serious mistakes", said the strategist, who requested anonymity.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington Executive Director Noah Bookbinder called Mueller "the right man for the job" in a release, adding, "It is our honest hope that he is able to get to the bottom of this situation - not just the truth about Russia's interference with the 2016 election and any coordination it may have had with the Trump campaign, but also the truth about the president's apparent obstruction of the FBI's Russian Federation investigation".

"White House and former campaign aides have tried to make sure Trump's media diet includes regular doses of praise and positive stories to keep his mood up - a tactic honed by staff during the campaign to keep him from tweeting angrily".

The FBI is also investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation, which many believe to be the reason Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last week. He also highlighted the "very, very strong recommendation" he got from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
