Rosenstein Hits Media for 'Anonymous Allegations' on Russia Probe
Rosenstein Hits Media for 'Anonymous Allegations' on Russia Probe
20 Junio, 2017, 10:59
The White House narrative has been that Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man who allegedly told him to fire the FBI Director James Comey, did so because of the ineptitude and disruptions caused by Comey during the Clinton investigation.
California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Trump's tweets are sending a message "that he believes the rule of law doesn't apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired".
Former FBI Director James Comey testifies before a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington.
"That is a great, great team of complete professionals, so let's let him do his job", former independent counsel Kenneth Starr, who investigated President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, told ABC News. "Witch Hunt", the president wrote in his tweet.
Americans are mixed on whether Mueller can lead a fair and impartial investigation. Still, the snowballing investigation has deeply angered Trump, who denies he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation.
The Washington Post, citing anonymous sources, had reported some hours earlier that Mueller, who is probing Russia's election interference and the possible links between Moscow and Trump's campaign, had added a key element to that probe, namely that the President would now be under investigation for obstruction of justice.
Also unclear was whether the president's comment confirming he was under investigation was based on direct knowledge or media reports that Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey last month.
The transition official spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to discuss post-election decisions publicly. Trump later contradicted his own staff, saying on May 11 he had the Russian Federation issue in mind when he fired Comey.
President Donald Trump has acknowledged for the first time that he is under federal investigation as part of the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling. The order by the general counsel for his transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government.
The order came the same day that Vice President Mike Pence hired an outside lawyer to represent his legal interests.
Trump's young presidency has been battered by allegations under investigation both by Congress and the FBI that Russian Federation interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favor, in possible collusion with Trump's campaign team.
Feinstein has said the Judiciary Committee should investigate, but had asked Grassley to keep the investigations separate.
A short time later, Trump ramped up his criticism with a new tweet, calling the investigation a "witch hunt" and calling its leaders "bad and conflicted".
A few hours later, Trump again tweeted, this time attempting to divert attention toward his former rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, first saying: "Why is that Hillary Clinton's family and Democrats dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?"
