  • Trump says ties with Russia at 'all-time low,' blames Congress

Could Trump be called to give evidence?

The development has led to speculation that Mueller's investigation has intensified, however what it means for the Trump administration is not yet clear.

The president has called the investigation into his administration's ties with Russian Federation a "witch hunt" and a "hoax" that is being used to "demean the United States".

"That was one of my favorite lines of the night or passages of the night, where basically the president is telling the people of West Virginia, and by extension the country, that the media, the investigators, the Democratic Party, they're not just denying the election results for Donald Trump".

"I think that's a misjudging of why we have a bad problem with Russian Federation". We won because of you.

First came a report by The Wall Street Journal that Mueller had convened a grand jury in a sign that his panel is expanding and making progress.

A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment for this article.

A Washington grand jury is said to be among the resources special counsel Robert Mueller is using in the investigation into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Trump's answer was clear, as he previewed a political strategy created to question Mueller's legitimacy, suggesting his investigation was a tool of the establishment that is still smarting from Hillary Clinton's election loss. "But against whom is the real question".

It is expected that the probe is unlikely to be over in less than several months.

U.S. stocks and the dollar weakened following the news, while U.S. Treasury securities gained. He also issued a statement for the press about the bill.

Since Sessions stepped away from the investigation, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein has been in charge of it. Rosenstein has said he would not fire Mueller without cause.

Federal prosecutors often treat them as fishing expeditions.

But the news of West Virginia's governor switching parties seemed buried beneath all the Washington frenzy over the impaneling of a federal grand jury.

The Republican president has defended his son's behavior, saying many people would have taken that meeting.

"While I favor tough measures to punish and deter aggressive and destabilizing behavior by Iran, North Korea, and Russian Federation, this legislation is significantly flawed", Trump said in a message to lawmakers known as a signing statement.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which is also investigating Russia's election meddling, said news that Mueller has impaneled a grand jury "suggests his work is proceeding".

A White House adviser said the president and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, had not received subpoenas, nor had the White House.

"The White House favours anything that accelerates the conclusion of his work fairly. The White House is committed to fully cooperating with Mueller".

The President offered a political argument - not a legal one - for why the Russian Federation story was "a total fabrication" on a day of dizzying revelations about the probe, that heaped fresh pressure on his beleaguered White House. The probe has been expanded to include Trump's dismissal of former FBI Director James Comey and the finances of Trump's family and current former associates. Concerns that Mr Trump wants to replace Mr Mueller prompted bipartisan efforts in the Senate to sponsor legislation "allowing judicial review" if a special counsel is removed.

Sekulow denied that was Trump's plan.

One source briefed on the matter said Mueller was investigating whether, either at the meeting or afterward, anyone affiliated with the Trump campaign encouraged the Russians to start releasing material they had been collecting on the Clinton campaign since March 2016.

The legislation provoked countermeasures by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said on Sunday that the USA diplomatic mission in Russia must reduce its staff by 755 people.
