Trump decries 'single greatest witch hunt' in US history

Irune Rengel | 19 May, 2017, 22:22

President Donald Trump denounced the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his campaign's ties with Russia Thursday, calling it an unprecedented "witch hunt" that "hurts our country terribly".

In a statement about Mueller's appointment, President Trump said: "As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity".

US President Donald Trump says he is the victim of the "single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history", in an apparent reference to the investigation regarding the president's alleged ties with Russian Federation.

Rosenstein briefed USA senators on Thursday, but made no public comments.

Democratic senators had been prepared to press Rosenstein Thursday to take the step of appointing a special prosecutor, but were left praising him instead before his closed-door briefing began.

He is expected to discuss not only his appointment of an independent special counsel for the Russian Federation investigation but also his role in the firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Trump as well as allegations that Trump asked Comey to end a criminal investigation into ex- National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The Russia matter has consumed Washington and overshadowed Republican legislative priorities including a planned healthcare overhaul and sweeping tax cuts, something the party had hoped to make rapid progress on given its control of the White House and both chambers of Congress. But GOP lawmakers have grown increasingly anxious since Trump fired Comey, who had been leading the bureau's probe - and after Comey associates said he had notes from a meeting in which Trump asked him to shut down the investigation into Flynn's Russian Federation ties.

"Mueller is exactly the right kind of individual for this job", said Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (Democrat).

Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi said an independent commission to investigate the Russian Federation matter was still needed to guard against White House interference.

He told senators he had already known Mr Comey was getting fired even as he wrote the memo Mr Trump cited as a significant justification for the Federal Bureau of Investigation director's dismissal.

Trump says Joe Lieberman is front-runner for Federal Bureau of Investigation chief
Lieberman is now a senior counsel at the NY law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres Friedman LLP, which has represented Trump for years . Lieberman traveled to the White House on Wednesday on short notice for an interview and afterward said it was a "good meeting".

A key issue Mueller may have to tackle is whether Trump has committed obstruction of justice, an offence that could be used in any effort in the Republican-led Congress to impeach him and remove him from office.

In Rosenstein's meetings with lawmakers, he reiterated the scathing critique laid out in his memo concerning Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server, including Comey's July news conference announcing that the FBI would not recommend charges.

Asked if he had done anything that might merit prosecution or even impeachment, Mr Trump said "no" and then added of the lingering allegations and questions: "I think it's totally ridiculous".

Donald Trump has responded with a direct - if brief - "No".

He added that although he's "not a legal authority", but that "the intelligence committee will get the facts".
