Senate judiciary probe may review obstruction of justice

As part of a wide-ranging inquiry into the Trump campaign's possible ties to Russia, FBI and congressional investigators are also reportedly looking into why Kushner met with Sergey Gorkov, a Russian banker who is a close confidant to Russian president Vladimir Putin, in December.

The president tweeted last week he was being investigated, but a member of his legal team denied that.

Sekulow made numerous same arguments on the Sunday news shows, though he told Fox News Sunday that he couldn't read Mueller's mind and that he couldn't say with 100 percent certainty that Trump wasn't being investigated.

You have to wonder just what "anonymous sources" the Washington Post relied on to publish this bit of fake news.

On 14 June 2017, The Washington Post reported that Trump had come under investigation for obstruction of justice after firing Comey, who did not comply with Trump's requests. The subcommittee is examining what USA intelligence agencies say was a Russian campaign of influence was meant to boost Donald Trump's chances of winning the 2016 presidential election.

Terror group ISIS claimed responsibility of the attack, reaffirming that the attack was premeditated and not improvised. In a separate statement, the PFLP identified two of the three attackers as its members.

Sekulow joined Trump's personal legal team, which includes Marc Kasowitz, Trump's go-to lawyer for years on both personal and business matters; Mark Bowe, who works with Kasowitz; and newly hired John Dowd, a well-known DC-based attorney. The White House used a memo he wrote to justify Trump's decision to fire Comey, but Trump's firing of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director may now be part of the probe.

Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley said the testimony in the hearing "actually helped Trump and his legal case", adding that even if we accept his version of events he "did not describe a crime or an impeachable offense".

"I think I better wait until I get done with my conversations with Feinstein before I answer that question", said Grassley, who also wants to review any actions taken by Obama attorney general Loretta Lynch to influence the Clinton email investigation.

Wallace was quite surprised, since Sekulow himself had twice referred to the president being under investigation. If you credit Comey's sworn account over Trump's news conference denials, Trump demanded Comey's loyalty; pressed him to drop the case against Flynn; and eventually fired Comey himself because of his handling of "this Russian Federation thing".

To the contrary: Thanks to The Washington Post, we now know that collusion is only one of three subject areas that the FBI investigation, now led by special counsel Robert Mueller, is exploring.

Shortly after Comey was terminated from his position, Trump hinted in a tweet that their conversations may have been recorded and that Comey should therefore avoid leaking to the press.

Responding to the multiple news outlets that reported the developments, Trump complained on Twitter, "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" Why would the president object to a thorough investigation - unless he had something to hide?

"His response was priceless", Gingrich writes in "Understanding Trump, " in an excerpt published by ABC News on Sunday. Perhaps they harbored some resentment against President Trump himself, and took pleasure in his discomfiture. "I think the important thing is to get started".

"After the appointment of our former partner Robert Mueller as special counsel, we advised Mr. Kushner to obtain the independent advice of a lawyer with appropriate experience as to whether he should continue with us as his counsel", Gorelick's statement read. Mueller was tasked with taking over the executive branch's investigation into alleged Russian interference and potential collusion between Russia and Trump's associates.
