Trump denies any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation

Trump waves as he walks on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington U.S. before his departure

Senators said that Rosenstein made clear that he has ceded all authority over the investigation over to Mueller.

"I think the shot to the body is it's now considered a criminal investigation", Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, a former military prosecutor, said as he exited the closed-door briefing in the basement of the Capitol. And Graham said that could impede Congress's "ability to conduct investigations of all things Russian Federation".

That would make it harder to subpoena records of people who could be subjects of the investigation, he added.

Senator Klobuchar said stakes could not be higher.

"After my 10th day on my new job in Washington, D.C., a friend sent me a text message that said, 'You need to get out of there!'" Rosenstein said.

In particular, Mr Trump referenced Mr Comey's "poor performance" at a Senate committee hearing the previous week, noting that the Federal Bureau of Investigation had been forced to adjust the record.

The Justice Department on Wednesday appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the investigation.

"Whatever review that Congress wants to do, I think that's the first step", she said.

The Washington Post made its initial blockbuster revelation, that Trump gave Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, "highly classified" information, based entirely on "current and former officials" - never speaking to, or as far as anyone can tell, even trying to speak to the three other government officials who attended the talks with the Russians: National Security Advisor H.R McMaster, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Senior Policy Advisor Dina Powell. "Clearly it wasn't last night, it's been a matter of a few days." he said.

Swecker served as Assistant Director of the FBI Criminal Investigations Division under Mueller.

Earlier this week, during the daily press briefing on May 15, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said a special prosecutor wasn't needed to look into the Russian Federation investigation. Those developments have driven up the scrutiny of the Department of Justice probe exponentially.

Trump fired Comey the next day. "He learned of the president's decision to fire him and then he wrote his memo with his rationale", Durbin said.

Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., said that Rosenstein told the senators that he knew on Monday, the day before Comey was sacked, that Trump was going to fire him.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC told reporters that it appears the FBI investigation is turning into a criminal investigation rather than a counterintelligence probe.

Comey's successor He said he would announce Mr Comey's successor "very soon".

Rosenstein's decision to name a special counsel seems to have helped redeem his reputation as a nonpartisan operative. "I have full confidence in former Director Mueller". "But we have to go back to running this country really, really well".

"It was a counterintelligence investigation before now". "It is my hope that there will not be conflict between one another". "Not completely, but pretty much", Graham said. "We're talking more likely years than months".

Rosenstein threatened to resign from the Justice Department because of the explanation that White House officials were giving reporters about the firing, said the person close to the White House, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
