Staff Had to Talk Trump Out of Firing Mueller — NY Times

Irune Rengel | 18 Junio, 2017, 00:43

The memos - first cited by the New York Times last month - said Trump told Comey in February to end the bureau's investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's Russian Federation connections.

President Trump assailed the ongoing probes of Russia's role in the 2016 election on Friday, blasting Congress and the Justice Department for continuing the investigations despite not presenting "any proof" of collusion between his campaign and the Kremlin.

"He is a man of extraordinary independence and integrity. and great character", Vice President Mike Pence told reporters on Wednesday, noting that the longtime Justice Department official "came to work, sat down and made his recommendation" to fire Comey.

After Trump fired FBI director James Comey, Trump said that Comey had told him three times that he was not under investigation. "Witch hunt", the president tweeted. And he seemed to accuse Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, of leading a "witch hunt". The White House initially claimed that Rosenstein's memo contributed to Trump's decision to fire Comey.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has brought 13 lawyers on board to handle the Russian Federation investigation, with plans to hire more, according to his spokesman Peter Carr. Trump associates say the president believes both are biased against him. "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office".

Britain shifts focus to growth as it girds for Brexit talks
Hammond said Britain's position had been set out in a speech by May in January and a letter she sent to European Union leaders in March when she triggered the Brexit process.

The lawyer for the president's son-in-law and close adviser said there was nothing surprising about the Post's report.

In an early-morning tweet, the President declared that he was "being investigated" for his decision to fire James B. Comey, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

He added: "Americans should be sceptical about anonymous allegations".

The department would not comment on the record on whether Trump, who has repeatedly complained about leaks on the case, requested the statement. Given how irate he was at Sessions for recusing himself, Rosenstein's recusal might send him over the edge.

The officials who described the financial focus of the investigation spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

And I think last night's report that he is directly investigating Trump for obstruction of justice does two things: Makes it more likely that Trump will decide to do it and increases the costs if he does. What is clear is that he could order the Justice Department to ax Mueller, which may result in Rosenstein's departure and would certainly intensify the uproar over the investigation. Donald F. McGahn II, the White House counsel, has also advised against firing Mr. Mueller.

Rosenstein stepped in after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself earlier this year over previously undisclosed meetings with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. Trump not only made a concrete argument that Rosenstein has a conflict of interest, but also deepened that conflict by asserting that firing Comey was Rosenstein's idea.

'It would be standard practice for the Special Counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to Russian Federation.

Vice President Mike Pence hired an outside lawyer to represent his legal interests in the expanding Russian Federation probe.

Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen has hired Washington, D.C. -based counsel. The transition, a non-profit structurally separate from the Trump campaign, continues to operate with a small staff.
