Deputy AG says he may have to recuse himself from Russian Federation probe

"Nice", the President tweeted.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein prepares to testify on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 13, 2017, before a Senate Appropriations subcommittee hearing on the Justice Department's fiscal 2018 budget. The White House has used a memo he wrote to justify Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, but that Trump action may now be part of the probe. The Washington Post reported earlier this week that Mueller is investigating whether Trump tried to obstruct justice, citing unnamed "officials". Rosenstein said he has seen no evidence of good cause to fire the special prosecutor overseeing the Russian Federation investigation. "President Trump said prior that once he gets in he's going to kick the S-H-I-T out of the enemy".

Feinstein added, "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office".

Rosenstein is in charge of hiring and firing because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian Federation probe. But Rosenstein, too, may ultimately have to hand off oversight of the probe given his own role in Comey's firing.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller likely "will be archiving these various Twitter rants as supplemental evidence" for the obstruction investigation, Moss, who also is deputy executive director of the James Madison Project, told VOA.

Wife of Nik Wallenda hangs by teeth over Niagara Falls
Trapese artist Erendira, also the wife of famed daredevil Nik Wallenda , broke her husband's record by just 50 feet. Wallenda had stood by a hoop hanging from a helicopter during a pre-NASCAR vehicle show.

The new allegations against Trump center on his own admission that he fired Comey because of the Russian Federation investigation, and suggestions he asked several top intelligence officials for their help altering the inquiry's direction. An official confirmed to Fox News that Trump was referring to Rosenstein in the statement.

Rosenstein's statement echoed President Donald Trump's attempts to delegitimize news stories about his administration, albeit with a more measured approach.

The order by the general counsel for the transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government.

The Twitter attacks came as Vice-President Mike Pence hired a personal lawyer to represent him in the intensifying investigation.

An aide to Vice President Mike Pence revealed on Thursday that he was hiring Richard Cullen - a veteran of the Iran-Contra investigation, Watergate and the 2000 vote recount in Florida - as a private lawyer. Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon. The memo asks for preservation of electronic communications and data, telephone logs, audio recordings, videos, calendars and other items.

The official said emergency procedures have been put in place and the ship is not in danger of sinking at this time. Seventh Fleet confirmed that two berthing spaces, an auxiliary machine room and the ship's radio room all flooded.

President Donald Trump groused Thursday that no one is investigating Democrats' "dealings with Russia" while there are multiple investigations into what he phrased as his "non-dealings" with Moscow.

"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?" he said.

"They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story".

Eight hours later, after a busy day meeting governors and witnessing the formal investiture of his pick for the Supreme Court, Trump returned to the topic again in two tweets suggesting Hillary Clinton, his Democratic opponent in the election, should be under investigation instead of him.
