As White House roils over Trump investigation Republicans in Congress try to ignore the chaos

The White House said no "final decision" has been made concerning its response to the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria, reported Xinhua news agency. As the president noted on April 8, the chemical weapons attack by the Syrian regime against innocent civilians in Duma, Syria on April 7 was horrifying, and demands an immediate response from the worldwide community."The threat to rain down missiles on Syria is a direct contrast to Trump's promise not to tell America's enemies what he's planning on doing militarily".

Earlier this week, a missile launch on Syria seemed imminent.

Trump wrote on Twitter Wednesday: "Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama".

"We are still working on this", said Mattis on Wednesday at Pentagon when asked by reporters if there was enough evidence to blame the Syrian government for the deadly attack.

Trump then began to speak about repairing America's inconsistent political affiliation with Russian Federation, and how Putin's nation needs Trump's help more than ever.

On Capitol Hill, Republican and Democratic lawmakers urged Trump to allow Mueller to do his work.

"They agreed it was vital that the use of chemical weapons did not go unchallenged, and on the need to deter the further use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime", a Downing Street spokesperson said.

"I will salute anything (that) comes from President Trump on this action and I hope it will lead to some kind of significant changes on the ground", said Mahmoud Barazi, a Syrian-American physician living in Houston.

The President and his legal team are also re-evaluating whether Trump should sit down for an interview with Mueller's team.

Trump did not take questions on these issues Wednesday as he signed an anti-online sex trafficking bill into law. He describes Trump as fixated in the early days of his administration on having the Federal Bureau of Investigation debunk salacious rumors he insisted were untrue but could distress his wife.

President Donald Trump participates in a meeting on trade with governors and members of Congress at the White House on April 12, 2018 in Washington, DC.

Rosenstein authored a memo criticizing James Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, and the note was later cited as justification for firing the FBI director.

Trump hunkered down at the White House, canceling a first trip to Latin America that was due to start Friday and stewing on a move that could throw America into a constitutional crisis.
