Unnamed White House Official Says Trump Is 'Completely F-ed'

By several senators' accounts, he contradicted Trump's statements that Rosenstein's written criticism of FBI Director James Comey had been a factor in Comey's recent firing by the president.

President Donald Trump lashed out at the appointment of a special counsel to investigate allegations that his campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the 2016 election, tweeting Thursday that it is "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!"

Rosenstein was returning to the Capitol on Friday for another closed-door session, this time with all members of the House.

Trump tweeted that he has "the absolute right" to share certain information with Russia but also didn't specifically say whether he spilled highly classified information to Russian officials.

Without directly confirming the details of their conversation, Lavrov told reporters in Cyprus on Thursday that he didn't understand what the "secret" was since the US introduced a ban on laptops on airlines from some Middle Eastern countries two months ago.

But calm seemed far off.

The President has the utmost respect for the law enforcement agencies, and all investigations, the White House said, adding that this is not a truthful or accurate portrayal of the conversation between the President and Comey.

In this August 21, 2013, file photo, then-FBI director Robert Mueller speaks during an interview at Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters in Washington.

FBI investigators reportedly discovered multiple contacts that are a cause for concern including Paul Manafort, former Trump Campaign Chairman, Carter Page, former Foreign Policy Advisor and Michael Flynn, the former National Security Advisor.

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

"Everybody, even my enemies, have said there is no collusion", he replied. "There is no collusion - certainly myself and my campaign - but I can always speak for myself and the Russians - zero", he said at a joint press conference with Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos.

"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!"

On Wednesday, an investigation into his campaign's ties with Moscow was significantly strengthened by the appointment of straight-shooting former FBI director Robert Mueller to lead it. 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.

Said Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina: "He's probably glad to leave town, and a lot of us are glad he's leaving for a few days".

It was another example of wrongdoing that Trump and his advisers dismiss as "fake news" invented by the major news media to bring down his presidency. Trump himself had already contradicted that explanation, telling interviewers earlier that he had already made a decision to dismiss Comey.

The White House has denied the allegations of obstruction of justice.

But once again Trump went into deep denial that he had ever said any such thing to Comey.

"Director Comey was very unpopular with most people", he said.

At the centre of the political firestorm are Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn and his one-time campaign manager Paul Manafort, and their multiple undisclosed contacts with Russian officials during and after the vote.

Here are five points you should know about this Trump turmoil and the mess lingering over U.S. politics in order to be able to understand how it can hurt stock markets.
