Trump lawyer argues 'president cannot obstruct justice' because he is president

Russia-Trump: President criticised for attacking FBI Trump: "I feel very badly" for General Flynn

Flynn is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's wide-ranging investigation into Russian attempts to influence the 2016 US election and potential collusion by Trump aides.

One day after a Flynn contact with Russia, Putin followed the Trump transition's advice; Trump then took to Twitter to praise a "Great move on delay (by V. Putin) - I always knew he was very smart!" According to Flynn, each time, "senior officials" on the Trump transition team directed him to convey certain information.

Did Mueller inform Flynn and his lawyer privately after Strzok left the case why he had been pushed out? Did they do it to try and get Flynn in a "lie"? She lied many times. "There was nothing to hide!"

As Sarah Carter reported, this news could cast doubt on the accuracy of Strzok's official summary of his interview with Flynn. Is there such a path to proof now is one way or the other?

"The allegations that the inspector general has confirmed are part of his ongoing investigation, if proven to be true, would raise serious questions of public trust", Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in the statement.

Francia tendrá amistosos de alto poder antes del Mundial Rusia 2018
Este partido será fundamental para alistar el grupo H del Mundial de Rusia que Colombia comparte junto a Polonia, Senegal y Japón. La tricolor ya disputó dos encuentros amistosos, uno con Corea del sur en el que cayó 2-1 y con China en donde se impuso 4-1.

Last week Mr Trump's former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn admitted to lying to the FBI.

Dowd clarified to The Post on Sunday that it was McGahn's and Trump's understanding "that the [Justice] Department was not accusing [Flynn] of lying".

Though the president has previously said he was thinking of "this Russia thing" when he fired Comey, Gurule said it was reasonable to infer from the weekend tweet that the dismissal of Comey was done in the hope of terminating the FBI investigation. Trump denies having asked Comey to stop that investigation. Granted, if Flynn is pardoned, that means he can be forced to testify by Mueller with no right to plead the Fifth and refuse to answer.

It's admittedly satisfying to watch these people slowly grapple with the ramifications of their association with this rotten-to-its-core administration, and to squirm in an attorney-imposed cone of uncertain silence.

K.T. McFarland, of Park Avenue and Southampton, didn't last much longer than Flynn on Trump's National Security Council. It is a restatement of the accusation.

The law is rarely enforced, and it surely sounds absurd to expect an incoming presidential administration to wait until moving into the White House on Jan. 20 to initiate any conversation whatsoever with any foreign government. Electronic records show Peter Strzok, who led the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server as the No. 2 official in the counterintelligence division, changed Comey's earlier draft language describing Clinton's actions as "grossly negligent" to "extremely careless", the sources said.The shift from "grossly negligent" to "extremely careless", which may appear pedestrian at first glance, reflected a decision by the FBI that could have had potentially significant legal implications, as the federal law governing the mishandling of classified material establishes criminal penalties for "gross negligence".

KELLY: OK, so this is complicated - yet more names to keep track of in the Russian investigation.

Republican politicians are also playing to Trump's restlessness.
