"Did you at any time urge former FBI director James Comey in any way shape or form to close or to back down the investigation into Michael Flynn?".

President Donald Trump was about to get the question - the one he'd avoided for almost 48 hours but could no longer.

Trump, of course, was none too happy, and he said in a statement that Muller would only "confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity".

House Speaker Paul Ryan says, "I don't think that's the case" when asked if tax reform could slip beyond this year.

He continued, "Then he had the very poor performance on Wednesday".

Trump last week fired Comey, who was overseeing the FBI investigation into whether anyone associated with Trump's campaign cooperated with Russian intelligence officials in their effort to influence the 2016 presidential election. And I thought that was was something that was bad, ' said Trump. Mr Comey, a diligent and generally well-respected Federal Bureau of Investigation director during his tenure, was known to write memos and disseminate them to his friends and allies in and out of the Federal Bureau of Investigation when he encountered situations that he thought were inappropriate.

'Because you look at all of the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side that were saying such bad things about Director Comey, ' Trump said. "Because you look at all of the people on the Democratic side, not only the Republican side, that were saying such bad things about Director Comey". Trump blasted it as a 'witch hunt'. I cherish the FBI.it is special. all over the world, no matter where you go, the FBI is special.

'The FBI has not had that special reputation with what happened in the campaign, what happened with respect to the Clinton campaign, and even you could say, directly or indirectly, with respect to the the much more successful Trump campaign. "We can not allow this to go unchecked-the president is not above the law, it is time for the American people to weigh in".
