Rosenstein resigned at the end of April, and will take effect May 11.

In short, Mueller's probe showed the Trump-Russia collusion narrative to be a work of fiction.

In an opinion piece for The New York Times published Wednesday, the former lawman - who Trump fired in May 2017, an act that helped kick off the special counsel investigation regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election - did not hold back. What happened to the leaders in the Trump administration, especially the attorney general, Bill Barr.' Comey wrote.

"Proximity to an amoral leader reveals something depressing".

The conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation was an unequivocal rejection of the conspiracy theory that has engulfed Donald Trump's presidency.

The attorney general released a summary of the report March 24, and in April turned over a blacked-out version to Congress, where less than 10 per cent of the report was redacted for various reasons.

The Mueller investigation, which had cast a shadow over Trump since he took office, documented widespread Russian attempts to influence the election but did not find that the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow. "Now that is not just the president can obstruct justice that is the president can't be investigated if the president doesn't want to be investigated".

During that conversation, the Attorney General made the claim that it is up to Trump if an investigation proceeds.

Comey, as someone who formerly found himself under the president's thumb, described how some leaders found themselves compromised by Trump.

Comey then laid out his argument that Trump has a unique way of controlling people around him by using persuasive language and the fact that "he rarely stops talking". Because, after all, what are you supposed to say?

Russian Federation denies election interference and accuses the United States of wrongful meddling of its own in the domestic affairs of countries such as Venezuela.

He closed by writing, "Of course, to stay, you must be seen as on his team, so you make further compromises". He has eaten your soul'.

The ad was blasted out during a lunch break in the dramatic Barr hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
