Trump says, speaking for himself, there was no collusion with Russia

Robert Mueller

Though the details of Rosenstein's Senate address aren't publicly available, Vice reported several Senators' responses after the meeting.

Deputy AG tells senators he knew Comey was...

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the number-two Republican in the Senate and a member of its Intelligence committee, said after the briefing that he told Rosenstein he was anxious about the committees stepping on the FBI's toes.

On Thursday, less than an hour after McCaskill and Durbin divulged what they heard from Rosenstein, Trump again raised Rostenstein's memo critical of Comey.

Following a almost two-hour, all-senators briefing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Graham said the appointment of special counsel means Congress is "pretty well knocked out of the game, and that's probably the way it should be".

He criticized Comey's testimony to Congress - "a poor, poor performance" - and said that helped seal his fate.

Rosenstein's highly-anticipated appearance came after a week of major developments that flowed from the Comey firing.

On Thursday, Trump denied trying to influence the investigation by sacking Comey.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Wednesday appointed former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Robert Mueller to lead the probe.

His appointment has garnered praise from both sides of the aisle. If we seek out truth and embrace it then Americans can know we all play by the same set of rules.

Senator John Cornyn said he doesn't want congressional probes to "inadvertently impede" the special counsel's investigation, while Graham said it will be hard to "subpoena records of somebody like Michael Flynn, who may be subject to a criminal investigation, because he has a right not to self-incriminate himself".

"On May 8 he learned that the president was going to terminate Comey", Durbin added.

"My takeaway is everything he said is you have to treat this as if it's a criminal investigation", Graham said.

On Thursday, after a briefing with Rosenstein on Capitol Hill, Sen. "It was really not a big deal, just be honest".

Democrats disagree. Virginia Sen.

"We have two very different missions". Our investigation is a counterintelligence one. Chris Swecker is now retired from the FBI, but he says his former boss is the best person to lead this investigation. He's not going to go looking for dresses and scandalous things.

The Senate investigation seems to have hit a roadblock, however. Sen.

Did he urge Comey at a February meeting to drop his probe of the Russian Federation connections of Trump's national security adviser, Michael Flynn? His staff has said he'd been mulling it for a long time.

The former U.S. House Intelligence Committee chair and a former Arizona attorney general sit on either side of the political aisle.

"The problem with this whole process is the public doesn't find out what the heck is going on and whether our election was hacked", Zeidenberg said.
