Trump investigated for possible obstruction of justice

15 Juin 2017

Congressional Republicans stood behind Mueller on Tuesday and said he should be given the freedom to conduct his investigation. She said such a move would "destroy any shred of trust in the president's judgment that remains over here".

"From the people that I've talked to, both Republicans and Democrats, there seems to be a mutual respect", said Walker. Trump could alternatively direct the Justice Department to repeal the regulation, potentially allowing the president to directly fire a special counsel.

Replying to a question from Sen. "I think he's weighing that option".

Mueller's office has taken up that work, and the preliminary interviews scheduled with intelligence officials indicate that his team is actively pursuing potential witnesses inside and outside the government.

Rosenstein said that if he fired Mueller, he would be required to explain it in writing.

"As long as I'm in this position, he's not going to be fired without cause", he added. If there were good cause, I would consider it. "I can't imagine that anyone in the White House is seriously discussing that".

The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy, and it is unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI, the sources told The Washington Post.

Under questioning from Sen.

"Senator, I'm not going to follow any order unless I believe those are lawful and appropriate orders", Rosenstein said.

"If there were not good cause, it wouldn't matter to me what anybody says".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller last month, testified Tuesday he has seen no evidence of good cause to fire Mueller.

The White House has distanced itself from Ruddy's comments, and press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters that he has not spoken to Trump about the topic. Should Rosenstein refuse, Trump could ask him to resign or fire him and direct his successor to fire Mueller. It's unclear whether the president could override those rules and order Rosenstein to fire Mueller. "I think the best thing to do is to let Robert Mueller do his job. We are not in a position to comment further".

Also Wednesday, Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley said his panel will investigate the removal of former FBI Director James Comey and "any alleged improper partisan interference in law enforcement investigations".

Ryan said the smartest thing for the president to do would be to let the investigation continue and be vindicated. Bob Corker said Tuesday. Days after that, Sessions also corrected his confirmation hearing testimony to inform the committee about his two meetings with Kislyak. Sessions argued that in the context of that hearing, "my answer was a fair and correct response to the charge as I understood it". Richardson refused and resigned, as did Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus.

"Why don't you tell me?"

Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating President Donald Trump for obstruction of justice, The Washington Post reported Wednesday evening.

Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey worked closely for years in the George W. Bush administration, when Mueller was FBI director and Comey was deputy attorney general.

Quoting officials, the newspaper said one event of interest to Mueller is an exchange on March 22, when Coats told associates that Trump had asked him to intervene with Comey to get him to back off the focus on Trump's former national security advisor Mike Flynn as part of the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe of the Russian Federation affair.

Investigators have also been looking for any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates.

The public testimony Tuesday before the Senate Intelligence committee should yield Sessions' most extensive comments to date on questions that have dogged his entire tenure as attorney general and that led him three months ago to step aside from the Russian Federation probe.
