Trump slams Russian Federation probe as 'witch hunt'

As previously reported, Trump's team also set up a dinner meeting with Comey where the President is reported to have demanded loyalty of the FBI Director. Mueller's appointment was not expected to affect the FBI or congressional investigations. Senators said that Rosenstein steered clear of specifics while making clear that Mueller has wide latitude to pursue the investigation wherever it leads, potentially including criminal charges.

Earlier this week, a memo written by Comey and relayed to The New York Times accused Trump of urging his former FBI director to end the federal investigation. The press conference was also one of Trump's last opportunities to speak on the record to the American media before his first trip overseas as president later this week.

While the White House initially pointed to a memo from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein , outlining Comey's mismanagement of the investigation into Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's private email server, as the impetus for his termination, Trump later admitted that the Russian Federation investigation - which he has called a "hoax" - played a role.

Asked if former FBI Director Robert Mueller's probe would "interfere" with the investigations by the House and Senate Intelligence committees, Ryan replied: "No, it doesn't actually". Russian Federation has denied USA intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Trump's favor.

A Washington Post report , citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter, said a senior Trump adviser is now considered a "person of interest" in the law enforcement investigation into whether Trump's campaign associates coordinated with Russian Federation in an effort to sway the 2016 election.
