President Donald Trump denied reports August 10 that he is planning to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading an investigation into Russia's alleged interference into the 2016 election.

PPP conducted the poll for VoteVets that revealed that firing Mueller would start the beginning of the end for Trump, "On other big matters of the day, voters say that Congress would be right to consider impeachment if Trump fired investigator Robert Mueller and pardoned conspirators by a 56-34 margin, with even 27% of Republicans agreeing".

He has asked the White House to provide him with some information about any specific meetings with Russian officials, people who attended them and whether there are any notes, transcripts or documents available about them, two of the people said.

Flynn was asked to resign February 13 - one day before Comey said his discussion with Trump about Flynn occurred - after it became public that Flynn had misled Vice President Mike Pence about whether he had discussed USA sanctions during pre-inauguration phone calls with the then-Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.

She said rationalisation of branches would result in an annual saving of Rs 1,160 crore for the bank over a period of time. Lower retail slippages and higher recoveries would lead to a reduction in retail NPAs, the bank said in a statement.

Last month, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided the home of Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign manager, and collected evidence, the Washington Post reported earlier in the week. And some say Manafort's recent change of law firms suggests that, if he wasn't already, he might be getting more concerned.

Investigating Manafort's money might just be small potatoes for Mueller.

According to legal experts, Mueller might be trying to pressure Manafort into cooperating with the investigation. He has also frequently said he hoped the investigation would be completed quickly. Manafort has stated he has nothing to hide from Mueller's team.

"I thought it was a very, very strong signal, or whatever", said Trump, USA Today reported. "I was very, very surprised to see it".
