Obstruction of justice case on Trump

Ousted FBI director James Comey listens during a hearing before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Capitol Hill

Ousted FBI director James Comey listens during a hearing before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence on Capitol Hill

Trump said, "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

The sad fact is, almost all the political holes the president now finds himself in are ones he dug himself, via tweets and other impromptu public statements.

"The continued illegal leaks are the only crime here".

Mueller's investigation is still in a relatively early phase, and it is unclear if any criminal charges will be brought when it is complete, the Post pointed out.

Mueller is interviewing senior intelligence officials about Trump's conduct in a new phase of the inquiry, which reportedly began soon after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey as the FBI was investigating ties between the president's associates and Russian Federation.

Burr said there's a reason for the committee's interest in interviewing these senior intelligence officials: To determine whether there was any collusion between Russian officials and Trump associates, a signt that obstruction was not part of his panel's purview. The New York Times was quoting from these memos the day before the referenced tweet, which disproves Comey's excuse for this unauthorized disclosure of privileged information and appears to be entirely retaliatory.

The interviews with the national security officials are a sign that Mueller is prioritizing the question of obstruction, says Washington Post reporter Adam Entous, and turning the focus on the president himself, not just his administration. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity because the meeting was private.

On Thursday, Kushner's lawyer said any such scrutiny of Kushner's business would be "standard practice".

Hawk 108 fighter jet reported missing in Malaysia
State news agency Bernama , citing air force chief Affendi Buang, reported that the bodies had parachutes attached to them. Mohd Asri is from Bandar Baru Jempol, Negri Sembilan while Yazmi is from Kuala Lumpur . "The two were experienced pilots".

Besides the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the intelligence committee, other probes into possible Trump campaign ties with Moscow are being conducted by the Justice Department, Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee.

Kushner has agreed to talk to the Senate Intelligence committee, and is expected to discuss these matters with the Senate intelligence staff, though the timing is still being worked out.

But Comey's comments were referring to conversations he had with the president before he was sacked, and before Mr. Trump made remarks including that he was thinking of the "made-up" story about ties to Russian Federation when he fired Comey.

Rosenstein told the Senate Appropriations Committee on Tuesday that Mueller would have "the full degree of independence that he needs to conduct that investigation appropriately" and that he would not follow an order to fire the special counsel "unless I believe those are lawful and appropriate orders".
