Trump denies asking Comey to drop probe, decries 'witch hunt'

"I think that opportunity has been lost, maybe for the greater good". "Zero", he said during the joint news conference at the White House. Last week in an interview with NBC's Lester Holt, he claimed he had been planning to fire Comey and called him a "grandstander".

Mr Trump is leaving on Friday for his first foreign trip as US President, which aides hope can have the effect of refocusing a White House in disarray. Republicans on Capitol Hill hoped the same, reasoning that the appointment of a special counsel could free them to work on a major tax overhaul and other matters without constant distractions.

"I can confirm that this is false", he tweeted about Trump's statement.

The rumored front-runner for the position is former Democratic Sen. Comey told Trump he should not contact him directly about FBI investigations but follow procedure and have the White House counsel ask the Justice Department, which oversees the FBI, the Times reported.A key issue Mueller may have to tackle is whether Trump has committed obstruction of justice, an offense that could be used in any effort in the Republican-led Congress to impeach him and remove him from office.

Did he in fact collude with Russian Federation in his campaign to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton?

Syria says US airstrike killed several soldiers near Jordan
Russia's deputy foreign minister Gennady Gatilov said the destruction of the convoy was a "breach of Syrian sovereignty". That is likely to be opposed by the USA and its allies who back rebels fighting IS in the same area.

"Everybody, even my enemies, have said there is no collusion", he maintained.

"The entire thing has been a witch hunt", he declared, echoing one of the tweets he'd sent out just after dawn: "This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!"

Mr Mueller's broad mandate gives him not only oversight of the Russian Federation investigation, but also over "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation" - which would surely include Mr Trump's firing last week of FBI director James Comey. "Based upon the unique circumstances, the public interest requires me to place this investigation under the authority of a person who exercises a degree of independence from the normal chain of command".

But the lingering question hanging over the press conference was what the appointment of Mueller meant for his presidency. 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". Mr Flynn was sacked by Mr Trump after it became known that he had Russian contacts and had misled the Trump administration about them. "Mr. Rosenstein has done the right thing", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said Thursday on the Senate floor.

Mueller was appointed Wednesday by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who had faced criticism as the author of a memo that preceded Comey's firing.

USA strike hits pro-Assad forces Syria
USA -backed and Kurdish-led forces are meanwhile marching toward the extremists' de-facto capital of Raqqa, in northern Syria. Noufal Safar, said the hospital received 52 bodies, including 11 women and 17 children.

Then he had the very poor performance on Wednesday.

McCaskill said "the facts speak for themselves" on that matter and declined to comment further, saying she needed more facts, documents and sworn testimony.

The Justice Department abruptly appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller Wednesday night as a special counsel to lead a federal investigation into allegations that Donald Trump's campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election that put him in the White House.

Both the Senate and the House of Representatives still have committees conducting their own probes into whether Trump campaign advisers conspired with Russian operatives to influence the 2016 USA presidential election.

On a day of fast-moving developments, the house of representatives intelligence committee announced that it, too, had asked for documents, in this case from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the justice department.
