Trump announces he's being investigated for firing FBI Director

"As of the date of this filing, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has not provided any substantive response to CNN", says the lawsuit, which is dated Thursday. Feinstein says committee Democrats "are supportive of issuing a subpoena should it become necessary".

The transition official said the organization has also separately asked the General Services Administration to preserve records from the Trump transition that were transferred to its facilities after the inauguration. Mark Warner of Virginia, the top two members of the panel, said after the meeting Thursday that Coats was speaking to the committee to "clear up a number of questions" after he testified in an open session last week.

President Donald Trump complained on social media about the wide-ranging investigation of Russian interference in the US election as Robert Mueller appeared to widen his probe to include whether Trump tried to obstruct justice.

A clear majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump has tried to interfere with the investigation into whether Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election and possible Trump campaign collusion, a new poll released Thursday shows. Since then, dozens of critical leaks about the Russian Federation investigation and Trump's handling of classified information have been reported, seriously undermining the administration's agenda. The natural interpretation of that statement is that the president is, in fact, under investigation - but Trump attorney Jay Sekulow said Sunday that is not the case.

Trump hammered off a second tweet Thursday, again calling the investigation a "WITCH HUNT".

Where is Trump? Philando Castile's Family Wants President To Intervene
Castile's taillight was out; Yanez also testified he thought Castile resembled a suspect in a recent convenience store robbery. Differing interpretations on the intentions of Castile's next movements defined both the state and defense cases.

President Donald Trump responded angrily to reports he is under criminal investigation Thursday, deriding a "witch hunt" against him led by some "very bad" people.

The president himself took to Twitter Wednesday morning to decry "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history". "#MAGA" - the acronym referring to his campaign slogan, Make America Great Again.

The FBI probe, now in the hands of special prosecutor Robert Mueller, shifted its focus to allegations of obstruction in the days after Trump fired the agency's then director James Comey on May 9.

Trump did not directly address the allegations that he is being probed for possibly obstructing justice - a potentially impeachable offense.

"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".

The order by the general counsel for his 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.

Former FBI Assistant Director James Kallstrom said this week to radio host Laura Ingraham that Mueller's 15-year friendship with Comey is "a huge conflict of interest".

President Donald Trump appears to have confirmed for the first time that he is under investigation, saying on Twitter Friday, "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

President Donald Trump has lashed out at the investigators driving the Russian Federation investigation as "very bad and conflicted people", responding angrily to reports that the special counsel is looking into whether Trump obstructed justice.

Comey testified that initial explanations that he was sacked because of poor leadership were "lies, plain and simple".

Mali security minister: 4 jihadis killed in resort attack
Gunman have staged an attack on a luxury report in Mali which is popular with expats and Western tourists, officials have said. It has been targeted constantly by jihadists, with dozens of peacekeepers killed, including five on Saturday.

In his nationally televised testimony last week, Comey accused the president of firing him because he refused to pledge personal loyalty and rejected Trump's appeals that he call off the probe of Flynn.
