Senators: Rosenstein knew of Comey firing before memo

Even as he erupted anew, fellow Republicans expressed hopes the move would restore some calm to a capital plunged into chaos. That language suggests Mueller could also explore whether the firing of Comey who publicly revealed investigation's existence to Congress in March and a conversation Comey has said he had with the president weeks earlier represented efforts to obstruct or derail the FBI's work.
"We'll get rid of the smoke and see where the actual issues lie", said Sen. "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 awful thing about Director Comey".
In a pair of morning tweets and at a later news conference, Trump described calls for his impeachment as "ridiculous" and said he had done nothing to warrant criminal charges. "Zero", he said at a news conference with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos. But he added, "I wrote it". "But we have to go back to running this country really, really well". Trump has dismissed suggestions of links with Moscow as Democratic sour grapes for losing the election.
Trump has cast himself throughout the Russian Federation investigation as an aggrieved president who is being mistreated by the media.
But despite such frustrations, members agreed that Rosenstein had received a warm reception from both Republicans and Democrats at the meeting, a development that they said showed not only praise for his selection of Mueller to oversee the probe but also a recognition that Republican resistance to an independent probe was futile.

Republicans and Democrats have openly questioned the timing of Trump's decision and its proximity to key developments in the Russian Federation inquiry.
Now Mueller will have almost unfettered access to witnesses and information, and the ability to bring criminal charges. Mueller has the ability to take the investigation in nearly any way he sees fit.
"This was a very good first step".
"Bob Mueller doesn't have, for example, the same broader responsibility to get into the kind of financial entanglements that I have especially focused on", Wyden said. "It seems to me now to be considered a criminal investigation".
But Rosenstein did not disclose further details about the memo he wrote, according to House members on Friday.
He denied media reports from last week that Comey had asked him for additional resources for his investigation before Trump fired him.
