"Let it play out its course", Gowdy told Fox News Sunday.

But he has taken aim at the special counsel's large team of lawyers, who were selected for their experience in financial fraud, money laundering, corruption, bribery and organized crime.

In a pair of separate tweets on Sunday, Trump also attacked Comey and McCabe, both regular foils to the president.

President Trump took out his frustrations over the intensifying Russian Federation investigation Sunday by lashing out at Special Counsel Robert Mueller, signaling a possible shift from a strategy of cooperating with a probe he believes is biased against him. And Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee said this past week that they had completed a draft report concluding, after a yearlong investigation, that there was no collusion or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation; committee Democrats vehemently disagreed.

In a statement Sunday, Sen.

Trump's attacks raised new concerns among members of Congress that he could be seeking to orchestrate Mueller's firing. The Senate's second-ranking Democrat, Dick Durbin of IL, said Trump could trigger a "constitutional crisis" and called for passing the legislation.

The investigation is not going away, despite the ridiculous tweets from Trump's lawyer, John Dowd, who seems to have been taking dictation from his client.

As of 1500 GMT, the voter turnout stood at 59.93 per cent, slightly up from 58.3 percent in 2012, Xinhua quoted the CEC as saying. In 2008 he was replaced by Dmitry Medvedev, who named him prime minister, and then Putin was again elected president in 2012.

McCabe said Friday that his own firing was part of "this Administration's ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day". Trump wrote. The night before, he had tweeted, "The Mueller probe should never have been started".

US President Donald Trump on Sunday attacked special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's election meddling as unfair, insisting the probe is staffed with "hardened" Democrats. "And yet, there is NO COLLUSION!"

The tweet marks one of the first times that Mr. Trump has mentioned special counsel Robert Mueller by name.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe late Friday night at the recommendation of Federal Bureau of Investigation officials, to the applause of Mr. Trump.

Trump renewed some of those complaints on Saturday, writing in a tweet, "The Fake News is beside themselves that McCabe was caught, called out and fired". I don't believe he made memos except to help his own agenda, probably at a later date.

"Wow, watch Comey lie under oath to Senator G", he tweeted Sunday morning, "When asked 'have you ever been an anonymous source ... or known someone else to be an anonymous source...?' He said strongly 'never, no.' He lied".

It was not immediately clear which interactions with Trump the memos detailed, or how specific they were.

The Big A: The manner in with US AG Sessions sacked Mr. McCabe, leaves the path clear for his incitement for lying to the FBI investigators investigating his questionable activities.

"Certainly the FBI is in the barrel, and they badly want to get out of it - the workforce does", said former FBI Assistant Director Ron Hosko.

Dowd called on Rosenstein to "bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe's boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier".

Those memos could be fodder for Mueller's probe if he is pursuing potential obstruction of justice by the president.

"I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter", said Comey.

Mueller has shown interest in McCabe's interactions with the president, though Comey's conversations might more squarely fit into a possible obstruction of justice case.

The memos could help bolster McCabe's credibility, insulating him from allegations that he misstated or misremembered his interactions with Trump. As Deputy Director, I was one of only a few people who had the authority to do that.
