Trump, who has denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation, has frequently lashed out about the allegations, which have overshadowed his administration's efforts to overhaul the healthcare system, cut taxes and boost jobs. Why would the president object to a thorough investigation - unless he had something to hide?
I immediately prepared an unclassified memo of the conversation about Flynn and discussed the matter with Federal Bureau of Investigation senior leadership. Vast amounts of allegedly damaging material have been leaked about "contacts" between Trump supporters and Russians in the last few months. "In about 500 cases, judges dismissed plaintiffs' claims against Trump". Various figures associated with the Trump campaign talked to various Russians, true - but that is proof of nothing. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has said there is no evidence of collusion. Indeed, it is virtually inconceivable, since the allegations of collusion never made any sense to begin with.
Mueller's probe is in its earliest stages and the idea he had narrowed the investigation down to one person is absurd. It is time for this leftist narrative to disappear into the dustbin of history, where it belongs.
In May, ABC News reported that Rosenstein was displeased with the White House portrayal of former FBI Director James Comey's firing as originating from him and was on the verge of resigning, according to an administration source. He refused to disclose private conversations with Mr. Trump, citing Justice Department policy protecting a president's rights of privacy in conversations with cabinet and other policy advisers.
Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, said the president was only referring to a news report. "At the tail end of our conversation, he jokingly said, 'By the way, I know you said I needed to spend $80 million, but I've only spent $30 million". So technically, Trump is correct: The man who wrote the memo endorsing Comey's removal has authorized an investigation that is reportedly probing whether that removal somehow constituted a felony.
Box office triumph for Wonder Woman's female director Patty Jenkins
Women directed only 7.7% of the top films of 2015, according to the 2017 Hollywood Diversity Report by the Ralph J. At this time, the filmmaker is not now signed on to direct Wonder Woman 2 .
Trump appears willing to test the bounds of convention and his own powers against a legal and political establishment that he believes is conspiring against him. The issue is whether Trump criminally obstructed justice. In this case, from everything Comey said in his testimony and everything the Post reported, we can believe Trump and not his hired gun: The president of the United States is under criminal investigation for possible obstruction of justice. Instead of focusing on Mueller's friendship with Comey, Professor Turley defends the special counsel's integrity, but questions whether he himself ever discussed Comey's firing with the President. Press secretary Sean Spicer denied it was a travel "ban"; Trump tweeted it was a ban. None of that behavior, however, meets the legal or even the commonsensical definition of obstruction of justice. Democrats would like to suggest that exasperation is proof of guilt.
President Trump is now in the grip of this situation.
"Guess I don't know for sure". "Ah-hah!" they squealed, Trump has confirmed that he is under investigation. Facing impeachment proceedings, however unlikely that may be with a Republican-controlled Congress?
Blatantly biased against Clinton, that judicial panel - headed by an intemperate, outspoken and extremely right-wing jurist named David Sentelle - was caught rigging the appointment of Kenneth Starr to replace the first Whitewater independent counsel, Robert Fiske.
