Trump acknowledges that he's being investigated

Reports say Mueller probe now examining possible obstruction

Reports say Mueller probe now examining possible obstruction

Rosenstein wrote a memo used by the White House to justify Comey's firing, prompting him to reportedly threaten to resign since the memo, though critical of the former director's performance, did not recommend his termination. Thursday night, Rosenstein issued an unusual statement complaining about leaks in the case.

President Donald Trump's advisers are in anguish over the chief executive's inability to control himself and not further complicate the multiple federal investigations engulfing the White House by tweeting or attacking other public figures.

While the Republican Trump administration initially said Rosenstein's letter was the reason the president fired Comey on May 9, Trump later said he did so because of the "Russia thing".

"We may have our differences, but we do well, in times like these, to remember that everyone who serves in our nation's capital is here because, above all, they love our country", Trump said.

"That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office". "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!", Trump tweeted. They can figure out what's going on from being interviewed this way. "Nice", Mr Trump wrote in his first tweet.

Could The Stand's boss lead the SNP in Westminster?
The Labour party, which used to dominate Scottish politics, was reduced to just one Scottish lawmaker in 2015. Many left-leaning people across Britain perhaps have the opinion that the SNP are a progressive party.

On Wednesday, the Washington Post reported Mueller is investigating Trump directly, over alleged obstruction of justice. Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegation. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations".

Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about Russia-related matters.

If false, Mr, Mueller should call out the Washington Post and say that the story is false. "Absent the most extreme circumstances, the President would be singularly ill-advised to threaten, much less order, Mueller's firing".

Trump allies have been questioning whether Mueller can lead an unbiased probe, given that some members of his team have made campaign contributions to Democratic candidates.

Mr Rosenstein took over the investigation into whether Russian Federation interfered with the United States election after Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself in March.

Pam Anderson Blasts British Prime Minister In Defense of Julian Assange
But Pamela was full of praise for the PM's rival Jeremy Corbyn who "could and should be the next prime minister". Model-actress Pamela Anderson has shared a love-filled post for Julian Assange on her official blog.

At the behest of the Trump administration, Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy, a close Trump friend and adviser, floated the idea that Trump was considering firing Robert Mueller.

Rosenstein has said privately he may need to recuse himself from matters relating to the Russian Federation probe because he could become a witness in the investigation, ABC News reported on Friday.

"Obstruction of justice is really a very hard crime to make out", Starr said on "New Day".

The move ordered Thursday by the transition's general counsel cast a wide net on documents tied to the Russian Federation investigation as well as inquiries into the activities of Trump associates.

The Washington Post reported earlier this week Mueller is investigating whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice when he told Comey he hoped he could "let go" an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. The rest of the White House staff seems to be sticking to their new strategy of compartmentalizing, referring all these questions about the investigation to the president's outside counsel, Marc Kasowitz.
