Trump retains outside lawyer to help with Russian Federation investigations

Irune Rengel | 25 May, 2017, 08:12

Trump says Comey was sacked because he no longer had confidence in him to lead the agency, a claim that only 36% of Americans say they believe.

A day earlier, former CIA Director John Brennan told a House committee that he had seen intelligence that "revealed contacts and interactions" between Russian officials and Americans "involved" in the Trump campaign - a cause for concern in case the Russians could get the Americans to cooperate. "And it raised questions in my mind, again, whether or not the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of those individuals". Flynn, who was sacked as national security adviser in February after he misled administration officials about his conversations with the Russian ambassador to the USA, earlier this week rejected a Senate Intelligence Committee subpoena for records of his communications with Russian officials, asserting his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination.

At a congressional hearing Tuesday, Coats did not deny the report but declined to comment about it.

Wednesday's poll comes after a rocky week for Trump, in which he came under fire for allegedly sharing highly classified information with Russian officials and allegations that former FBI Director James Comey reported in a memo that Trump asked him to drop the probe into ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

But me personally, I didn't have it". "I mean, what do you want me to say?" There wasn't much to gush about, that's for sure. A 30-point home loss with IT4, a 42-point home loss with IT4 and a thrilling three-point win on the road without him.

Coats said several investigations of Trump campaign links with Russian Federation "are in place to get us to the right conclusion with a known result", so the country can move on to deal with other issues.

After the President fired Comey on May 9, stories surfaced that Trump had urged Comey to back off his investigation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

"We are still awaiting official responses from both the Justice Department and White House, " the Senate Judiciary Committee said in a statement late Wednesday. The president made the same request to Mike Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, the official said.

President Donald Trump has retained the services of a trusted lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, to help him navigate the investigations into his campaign and Russian interference in last year's election, according to people familiar with the decision.

Solomon L. Wisenberg, a Washington defense lawyer who worked as a prosecutor during the Starr investigation of President Bill Clinton, said both of Flynn's corporate structures would likely have to turn over all business records sought by the committee.

Most Americans told Quinnipiac University's pollsters they thought Trump was lying and should be investigated by the House of Representatives. There's reportedly "an internal memo written by a senior NSA official" that describes Trump's conversation with Rogers.

The majority of voters (52% across both parties and 56% of independents) surveyed said they did not think it was appropriate for the president to reveal such highly classified information to Russian Federation, possibly also affecting Trump's popularity rating. A fight over whether notes and recordings are privileged could further draw the White House deeper into a dispute that already threatens to stall the Trump administration's legislative agenda.
