Trump urges quick conclusion of Russia probe
President Donald Trump today responded to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate his campaign's ties with Russia by protesting his innocence and calling for the probe to conclude "quickly." 

"A thorough investigation will confirm what we already know there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity," Trump said in a tersely written statement.

"I look forward to this matter concluding quickly," Trump said, without directly commenting on the Justice Department's appointment of former head of the FBI Robert Mueller as a special investigator.
