Pressure against Donald Trump mounts

The United States Justice Department has named former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) chief, Robert Mueller, as special counsel to investigate alleged Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential elections.

The move followed a week in which the White House was thrown into an uproar after US President Donald Trump fired FBI director, James Comey.

Democrats and some of the president's fellow Republicans had demanded an independent probe on whether Russia tried to sway the outcome of November's election in favour of Trump and against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Trump has denied collusion between his campaign and any foreign entity, and that he asked Comey to drop the investigation.

Newsweek’s National Politics Correspondent, Nina Burleigh, says Republicans are beginning to get fed up and have started talking about impeaching Trump if allegations against him are true.
