Trump Acknowledges He Is Under Investigation in Russia Inquiry

Malita Javier | 19 Junio, 2017, 03:42

Comey testified to the Senate Intelligence Committee last week that he believed he was sacked to undermine the FBI investigation, and said the president told him to drop the investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn as part of the Russian Federation probe.

Democrats and Republicans alike decried President Trump's tweet about the Russian Federation investigation on Capitol Hill Friday.

"If that happens Mike Pence will soon become the 46th President", Painter wrote. Trump exclaimed on Twitter, referring to the investigation as a "Witch Hunt". But Rosenstein, too, may ultimately have to hand off oversight of the probe given his own role in Comey's firing.

A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment on the tweet. Rosenstein, the official who would be responsible for dismissing Mueller, told United States lawmakers he would fire him only with good cause. In that case, Rosenstein could be called as a witness.

Sabemos lo que representa para Portugal , lo que ha hecho individualmente, pero preparamos el juego colectivamente, de manera grupal.

When Trump fired former FBI Director James Comey last month, he initially cited a memo written by Rosenstein as the basis for the dismissal.

On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported that Mueller was investigating if Trump obstructed justice when he fired Comey.

He did not mention any names but his message comes a day after he took to Twitter to slam a media report indicating that special counsel Robert Mueller was investigating Trump himself for obstruction of justice related to the Russian Federation probe.

And now, Trump's tweet seems to confirm Mueller is investigating the president.

Thirty bodies were found inside cars, with another 17 next to the vehicles, on one road leading on to the IC8 motorway. As per the official reports, some victims were burned to death in their cars as they tried to flee.

"Now my sources are telling me that he's begun some preliminary planning, plans to talk to some people in the administration, but he has not made that momentous decision to go for a full-scale investigation", Thomas said.

Mr Pence's office confirmed he had retained Richard Cullen, a former Virginia Attorney-General and U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to assist "in responding to inquiries" from Mr Mueller.

Mueller's investigation appeared to be reaching a broadening circle of current and former officials.

That includes information about the activities of Trump associates, including former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, outside adviser Roger Stone and foreign policy aide Carter Page. But he had said last week he felt vindicated by Comey's testimony on June 8 that he was not the subject of investigation while Comey was heading the agency.

Rubio affirmed his confidence in Mueller and his ability to lead the investigation, which is also looking into potential ties between Trump campaign staff members and the Kremlin.
