Trump investigated for obstruction of justice

White House officials said late Monday that Ruddy was at the White House that day, but said he hadn't meet with the president and never spoke with him about the issue. "That is a very big deal".

Grassley on Tuesday stopped short of ruling out establishing a congressional investigation into the question of whether Trump obstructed justice.

Trump's legal team quickly denounced the Post report.

The Post reported that according to five officials briefed on requests, those to be interviewed include: Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats, National Security Agency head Mike Rogers and Rogers' now former deputy Richard Ledgett.

OH congressman Brad Wenstrup , who served in Iraq as a combat surgeon from 2005-06, provided medical care at the scene. Congress members helped apply a tourniquet to the injured leg of Zachary Barth, legislative correspondent for Rep.

CBS News has learned that Daniel Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, has agreed to be interviewed by the Special Counsel's office about conversations he may have had with the president about the Russian Federation investigation.

NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines told NPR's Phil Ewing, "NSA will fully cooperate with the special counsel. We are not in a position to comment further". Trump later said he was thinking about "this Russia thing" as he made a decision to dismiss him because he considered claims that Russian interference in the election influenced it in his favor to be bogus, an excuse by Democrats to account for his stunning upset of Clinton. During that testimony, Comey also revealed that he had leaked a memo containing his notes from a February 14 meeting with Trump.

While Trump had said James Comey assured him that he was not under investigation three times, "that changed after Comey's firing".

Rosenstein said that Attorney General Jeff Sessions "actually does not know what we're investigating", and added: "Director Mueller is going to have the full independence he needs to conduct that investigation appropriately".

Unionists' price to save PM: hit Sinn Fein funds

Republicans may have spent the first few months of Trump's presidency cowardly refusing to hold him accountable, but even they are starting to recognize his days in the White House may be numbered. Instead, Comey responded that he would give the president "honest loyalty".

This marks a dramatic turn by Robert S Mueller III in the investigation, now nearly a year old. "The continued illegal leaks are the only crime here".

In addition to investigating possible collusion between members of the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, which Comey confirmed was underway on March 20, the special counsel will probe for "any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates". In a letter, Republican Sen.

Feinstein has said the Judiciary Committee should investigate, but had asked Grassley to keep the investigations separate.
