The complex issues of the Russia probe, special counsel

19 June 2017, 02:15 | Guillermo Sutton

In a statement calling such a move a "blatant violation" of the president's oath of office, Feinstein warned, "If the president thinks he can fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and replace him with someone who will shut down the investigation, he's in for a rude awakening".

"Subject to the possibility of being fired for 'good cause, ' Mueller should be allowed to do his work unhindered and unimpeded", Starr writes.

He said: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

In another development, members of Trump's transition team that served him after he was elected in November until he took office in January have been ordered to preserve materials related to the Russian Federation matter, the New York Times reported. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., wrote his own letter, insisting that Rosenstein's hard-earned reputation as an "apolitical actor" was "now imperiled" by the deputy attorney general's role in Comey's firing.

Sekulow stressed repeatedly that Trump is not under investigation. Sources tell ABC News that he may have to pull out since he does have final say over parts of the special counsel's investigation.

It's "only a matter of time before Rachel Brand is the acting attorney general for purposes of this investigation", tweeted Matt Miller, MSNBC justice and security analyst and former Justice Department spokesman.

Carson was asked if he believed Mueller could be fair following the President's tweets calling the probe into alleged collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation "a witch hunt".

"Director Mueller is going to have the full degree of independence that he needs to conduct that investigation appropriately", Rosenstein said.

Russian Federation claims it killed two more Islamic State commanders in Syria: Ifax
A large number of ISIS terrorists, including non-Syrians, were killed and their military hardware were damaged in the attack. "Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was also present at the meeting and was killed as a result of the strike ", the ministry said.


The business dealings of President Donald Trump's son-in-law and trusted aide Jared Kushner are being investigated by Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller, the Washington Post reported Thursday, citing officials familiar with the matter.

As special counsel, Mr. Mueller will report to the Justice Department and determine whether or not crimes were committed. The White House denies any collusion. "Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations". But Justice Department policy and federal service law bar discrimination in the hiring of career positions on the basis of political affiliation, so Mueller may not have considered those contributions.

A Trump confidant said this week the president had considered firing Mueller.

The FBI and Congress are both looking at whether Trump campaign officials colluded with the alleged Kremlin plot.

Flynn was dismissed by Trump in February after it emerged he had misled Pence about conversations with the Russian ambassador.

"They want to lay the foundation to discredit whatever Bob Mueller comes up with, ' Schiff, the top democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said on ABC News" 'This Week.' .

Hours later, a source close to Trump's outside legal team said Trump did not intend his tweet to be confirmation of the investigation but rather was reacting to a Washington Post story on Wednesday about the probe.
