New York Times sues FBI to get notes of Comey-Trump talks

Понедельник, 19 Июн, 2017

Last week it was revealed that Mueller is investigating Trump for obstruction of justice for the way in which he fired FBI Director James Comey.

Trump's digital volley appeared to be trained at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who recommended the firing last month of James Comey - an nearly unprecedented move that could yet imperil Trump's presidency.

It was unclear whether the president was referring to Special Counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Trump on Thursday blasted news reports that he was under criminal investigation as a "witch hunt" against him led by some "very bad" people.

NY [U.S.], June 16: U.S. President Donald Trump has mocked FBI investigators of not being able to find any evidence related to the probe of a possible collusion between his team and Russian Federation during 2016 Presidential election.

Yet Trump seemed to dispute that narrative weeks ago when he told NBC's Lester Holt he had Russian Federation on has mind.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is now overseeing the investigation into President Trump's campaign, but there's been speculation he could step down.

Trump's tweets Friday were especially remarkable considering the context that Trump was repeatedly asking Comey and other investigators to go on the record to say he wasn't under investigation.

Yesterday, Trump referred to the possible obstruction of justice investigation as the "single greatest witch hunt in American political history". White House officials had no case ready for the dismissal of Comey and received heavy criticism for the conflicting explanations about his departure. "Witch hunt", the president tweeted.

In a perplexing series of Friday-morning tweets, President Donald Trump appeared to confirm that he is under investigation by the FBI and levelled a scathing attack against the officials leading the inquiry.

"What I did is I was going to fire Comey".

DONALD TRUMP'S LAWYER has insisted that the US President is not being investigated personally by the Federal Bureau of Investigation - despite Trump himself saying that he is.

The president has directed some of his frustration at Rosenstein and Mueller.

In his Tuesday testimony before the Senate, Rosenstein said he would only fire Mueller under "lawful and appropriate orders" to prove Mueller's firing is for a "good cause".

White House aides have been instructed to not talk about Russian Federation investigation, but that doesn't apply to the President.

The White House has said that Kushner's subsequent meeting with Sergey Gorkov, CEO of Russia's state-owned Vnesheconombank, was unrelated to business matters.
