Trump: Washington's relationship with Russia at an all-time low

Trying to build support among his core supporters, he said his enemies were "trying to cheat you out of the leadership you want with a fake story that is demeaning to all of us and most importantly, demeaning to our country and demeaning to our constitution". "It's just an excuse for the greatest loss in the history of American politics".

In the case of the current investigation, Rosenstein is charged with Mueller's fate because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from all matters having to do with the Trump-Russia investigation.

As he investigates Russia's interference in the presidential election, Mueller may continue to use multiple panels or eventually consolidate those efforts in Washington, where the special counsel's team has only begun to use a grand jury in recent weeks.

The establishment of a grand jury will allow Mueller - a former FBI director - to subpoena documents and get sworn testimony. Mueller has taken over that investigation. "You lie in front of a grand jury, you are a felon", Scarborough said.

The governor is expected to publicly announce his decision Thursday evening at a campaign rally with the president.

The other legislation was proposed by Sens.

Jim Justice says he's switching parties to join the Republicans as President Donald Trump visited the increasingly conservative state.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores declined to comment on the report.

"Mueller enjoys wide support in the Senate" from both parties, Coons said.

Mueller is also said to be investigating Trump's financial records unrelated to Russia or the election, CNN reported.

Trump has repeatedly rejected claims that he colluded with Russia.

The measure would apply retroactively to this past May 17. Then president Bill Clinton was forced to give details about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, evidence that was used in his impeachment.

Trump reportedly mulled firing Mueller, which he could do by directing the attorney general to make the change.

Two US senators introduced a bipartisan bill Thursday to pre-empt that move by insulating Mueller. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Chris Coons, D-Del., would let any special counsel for the Department of Justice challenge his or her removal in court.

The act would allow Mueller to go before a three-judge panel if he is terminated.

"A back-end judicial review process to prevent unmerited removals of special counsels not only helps to ensure their investigatory independence, but also reaffirms our nation's system of check and balances", Tillis said in a statement.

Coons added: "Ensuring that the special counsel cannot be removed improperly is critical to the integrity of his investigation".
