Trump fired Flynn on February 13, on grounds that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence and other officials about his contacts with Russians. "While we are still learning about the extent of the special counsel's full scope of authority, I welcome this first step and urge the DOJ to ensure that Mr. Mueller has the resources and ability to conduct the investigation thoroughly, impartially, and without threat of retaliation".
The moves comes a day after it was disclosed that Comey had written a memo detailing how Trump had asked him to shut down the investigation into Flynn.
But reports claim Trump divulged an element of the intelligence - related to an ISIS plot against air travel - that could have allowed Russian Federation to divine the sources and methods used to gather the information.
"We need to decide if members of Congress, and the country as a whole, believe that the President's conduct was corrupt enough - if indeed that is what we find - that his removal is not just the nullification of the election by other means".

Comey wrote in a memorandum that President Trump asked him to let the Flynn situation go. Frank Keating, FBI acting director Andrew McCabe and Richard McFeely, a former top FBI official.
Well, I hope you're happy, racist America, because this is what happens when a racist part of America can't stand the fact that a black man president-ed all over this country like a boss. "He is a good guy". Yet he suggested that the president didn't know what he was doing because Trump hadn't been briefed enough about the source of the intelligence to understand the sensitivity behind it.
In response to the New York Times report, a White House official pointed out that acting FBI director Andrew McCabe had testified last week that there had been "no effort to impede our investigation to date".
House Oversight Committee chair Jason Chaffetz demanded that all correspondence be presented by 24 May.
