On Wednesday, the Justice Department appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel to preside over the investigation, which will certainly include Flynn.

"If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorised to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters", the order says.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday referenced the controversy surrounding photos a Russian photographer took during a White House meeting with President Trump that was closed to the American press.

US President Donald Trump denied trying to quash an FBI investigation of his former national security adviser and said there was no collusion by his campaign with the Russians who used hacking and disinformation to interfere with the 2016 presidential election.

Trump pulls trigger for NAFTA talks
The president has vowed to negotiate a better NAFTA _ or to walk away from the agreement if he can't get one. Chamber of Commerce, said the group welcomed the opportunity to modernize NAFTA for the 21st century.

"As far as I can recall, maybe one month or two months before the Trump administration had an official ban on laptops on airlines from seven West Asian countries and it was connected directly with the terrorist threat", Lavrov added.

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly briefed senators on Mueller's appointment on Thursday, but refused to give a public statement. "It's special", Trump said, adding that the bureau will soon have a director "who's going to be outstanding". Despite the president's furious reaction, some fellow Republicans welcomed Mueller's appointment and expressed hopes it would restore some composure to a capital plunged in chaos.

"I think it is totally ridiculous", he began.

He offered new justifications for his decision Thursday, even while referring to the Rosenstein memo as "a very, very strong recommendation".

ISIS leader in Afghanistan killed in raid
His group is affiliated with Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and the USA military calls it Islamic State-Khorasan, or ISIS-K. Just last month, the US dropped the 22,000-pound, Mother of All Bombs, in the Nangarhar region, killing almost 96 fighters.

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.

At the same time, congressional committees are continuing their own investigations, leading to some turf warfare and sniping as the Senate Intelligence Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee both sought to lay claim to testimony from Comey, while the House Oversight Committee also hoped to hear from the former director. "That doesn't seize up Congress", Ryan said at a press conference.

The FBI's reputation, he said, had been damaged during the presidential campaign, given "what happened with respect to the Clinton campaign".
