Mr Trump has faced intense backlash for firing Mr Comey on May 9. "I hope that we don't inadvertently trip up or damage the independent investigation of the special counsel", he said. But by saying he was speaking "for myself", Trump was less than definitive about whether collusion may have occurred between Russian Federation and his campaign aides. "When I made that decision I actually thought it would be a bipartisan decision because you look at all of the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side, that were saying such bad thing about Director Comey". Tim Scott, R-S.C. "I do think that the special prosecutor provides a sense of calm and confidence perhaps for the American people, which is incredibly important".
Rosenstein provided Mueller with broad authority to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump" and "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation".

The Justice Department's decision to put Mueller in charge of the investigation comes as the White House was already reeling from a series of self-inflicted controversies.
The No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, said he is supportive of investigations in Congress but expressed concern about the "proliferation" of hearings. "Mueller can request additional resources, makehis own calls about where to point the investigation, and in general can operate in some sense more autonomously than an ordinary United States attorney because of the designation 'special counsel.'" Mueller's next step will be to create a budget for the investigation's resources together to be approved by Rosenstein in 60 days. The White House counsel's office was alerted only after the order appointing Mueller was signed, said a senior White House official, who was not authorized to speak publicly by name and commented only on condition of anonymity. There has never been anything like it.
