Rep Al Green, called for the impeachment of President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice, citing the circumstances around which former FBI Director James Comey was sacked.
Another Democrat, Representative Al Green, yesterday called for Mr Trump's impeachment on the House floor.
Despite the appointment, at least three congressional committees are continuing their investigations, leading to some turf warfare and sniping as the Senate Intelligence Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee both sought to lay claim to testimony from Comey, while the House Oversight Committee also hoped to hear from the former director.
Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., however, told reporters, after Rosenstein briefed the full Senate Thursday afternoon, that the deputy attorney general said he knew Comey would be dismissed by Trump before writing the memo that the White House released when it announced the firing.
President Donald Trump on Thursday categorically denied pressuring former FBI director James Comey to end the FBI's investigation into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
The Times reported that Comey wrote the memo immediately after meeting with Trump on February 14, one day after Flynn was asked to resign. Chaffetz had Comey in front of the oversight committee within 48 hours of his announcement that Clinton wouldn't face criminal charges, Cummings said.
He said that he thinks the appointment of a special counsel "divides the country".

Manning was imprisoned for disclosing archives of secret files to WikiLeaks and sentenced to an unprecedented 35-year term . July 5, 2016: Manning tries to kill herself in the military lockup at Kansas' Fort Leavenworth, according to her attorneys.
Mr McCarthy, the House majority leader, reportedly said: "There's two people, I think, Putin pays -[California Representative Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump".
According to a transcript in the Washington Post, speaker Paul Ryan replied: "This is an off the record ..."
"Well I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt", he said, insisting there had been "no collusion" between his campaign and Russian Federation.
In his statement Wednesday evening, the senator said Congress would still "have a role to play in bringing transparency to the American people". Republicans, meanwhile, have continued asking questions about the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server a year ago. Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee also asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to turn over memos relating to Comey's interactions with his superiors in both the Trump and Obama administrations.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered to release transcripts of the White House meeting to prove that Mr Trump did not divulge any secrets. The article noted that Mr. Comey was known among his closest advisers to document conversations that he believed would later be called into question.
Trump also changed his story once again about the circumstances surrounding Comey's firing, returning again to the White House's original rationale that he based his decision on Rosenstein's recommendation.
Grassley and Feinstein asked for the information by next Wednesday.
