Special Prosecutor Is a 'Very Bad' Person Leading a 'WITCH HUNT'

17 Июня, 2017, 05:06 | Author: Lucrece Courtet

Any senior White House or administration official with any connection to the probe-Pence was a figure in the decision to fire national security adviser Mike Flynn, who is under investigation-may be reconsidering the advice from President Trump's own personal counsel, Marc Kasowitz, and lawyering up themselves.

Former FBI Director James Comey told Congress last week that he believed he was sacked by President Trump to undermine the agency's ongoing Russian Federation probe. "It's my judgment that I was sacked because of the Russian Federation investigation", Comey said. "That is a very big deal".

According to a report by the Washington Post on 15 May 2017, Mueller is also following up on allegations that Trump tried to obstruct the course of justice in his dealings with Comey.

Comey told lawmakers last Thursday that he has concluded he was sacked in part because he refused to drop the FBI's investigation of Trump's campaign adviser and first national security adviser, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.

Robert Mueller, 72, was the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from September 2001 - just days before 9/11 - to September 2013.

"The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal", Mark Corallo, the spokesman for Mr Trump's legal team, said in an email.

Trump's tweet Friday reflected the first official confirmation that he is being investigated by the special counsel for the reasons he fired Comey last month.

The three officials the Post says Mueller is interviewing are Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and Richard Ledgett, the recently retired deputy NSA director.

The New York Times corroborated the report, citing a person briefed on the investigation.

NSA spokeswoman Vanee Vines told NPR's Phil Ewing, "NSA will fully cooperate with the special counsel".

In this context, and in any context, it is obvious that none of President Trump's purported statements constituted obstruction alone, and especially, in the context of President Obama's far more extensive comments about the Clinton investigation that were never investigated as obstructive. The FBI did not immediately respond. "Nice", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Chatter surfaced earlier this week that the president was considering firing Mueller. The investigation has been cloaked in secrecy and it's unclear how many others have been questioned by the FBI.

Mr Comey also said Mr Trump repeatedly sought assurances that he wasn't a target of the Russian Federation investigation.

Comey's sacking shortly after the Feb 14 Trump conversation has raised speculation among critics that the President is attempting to cover up links to Russian Federation - a charge he firmly denies.

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel called the accusation in the Post unfounded and said it "changes nothing".

"There's still no evidence of obstruction, and current and former leaders in the intelligence community have repeatedly said there's been no effort to impede the investigation in any way", McDaniel continued in her statement.

On Wednesday, Mueller met with members of the Senate Intelligence Committee to ensure their parallel investigations remain detangled. In a letter, Republican Sen. Separately, Mr Coats is scheduled to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in a closed session Thursday. Trump cited the memo in firing Comey. "I don't know how anyone can see this as anything but obstruction of justice". Reporter Tony Mauro noted the addition of Dreeben may signal that "Mueller may be seeking advice on complex areas of criminal law, including what constitutes obstruction of justice".
