Russia Investigation Is Witch Hunt That 'Hurts The Country'

Russia Investigation Is Witch Hunt That 'Hurts The Country'

Even so, Trump insisted that the memo factored into his decision. He said Rosenstein's reason was that he didn't want to infringe on special counsel Robert Mueller. "Director Mueller has an enormous responsibility, to impartially determine the extent to which Russia has interfered in our democracy, and the depth of any connections between this administration and Russian officials". "I look forward to this matter concluding quickly". The Republican senator John McCain said that Trump's troubles had reached "Watergate size and scale".

If President Donald Trump was hoping to head out on his first big foreign trip with turmoil calmed at home, he's going to have a disappointing Air Force One departure on Friday. That could well include the firing last week of FBI Director James Comey.

Russian Federation has denied United States intelligence agencies' conclusion that it interfered in the election campaign to try to tilt the vote in Mr Trump's favour. That agency still falls under the attorney general, who is appointed by the president.

Democrats said it was not a moment too soon. "I am confident he will serve with integrity and professionalism, and will conduct a thorough and fair investigation". "And he is a career man, a career Federal Bureau of Investigation kind of guy, and I think that's a good thing".

Republican Senator Marco Rubio said he has "full confidence" in Mueller. "Additionally, the ongoing investigations by the both the Senate and House must continue". However, a special counsel has less autonomy than a special prosecutor, a role phased out in 1999.

"This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" he tweeted, also complaining that Hillary Clinton and President Obama weren't investigated by a special counsel.

The Mueller pick was announced Wednesday. But he complained bitterly that about criticism of his still-young presidency. "You can't let them get you down, you can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams". I guess that's why we won.

Trump wants Flynn back
The attorneys reportedly expressed fears that any contact with Flynn could look like witness tampering or coordination. But Flynn apparently gave indications that he is not going to turn on Trump.

You can't get more bipartisan or trustworthy than this man.

Rosenstein was returning to the Capitol on Friday for another closed-door session, this time with all members of the House. Stocks fell sharply on Wall Street as investors anxious that the latest turmoil in Washington could hinder Trump's pro-business agenda.

Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi said an independent commission to investigate the Russian Federation matter was still needed to guard against White House interference.

Fighting back against multiple crises has consumed much of the political oxygen inside the White House, leaving Trump's agenda in doubt. It later emerged that Comey made note of Trump's request in a memo that was saved.

He was appointed under a rarely used statute that requires him to report the findings of his investigation to Rosenstein in a confidential report.

Shortly thereafter Burr reversed himself in a statement saying Flynn's attorneys "have not yet indicated their intentions regarding the Senate Intelligence Committee's subpoena", and he would welcome "their willingness to cooperate".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who signed the order informed Trump only after the appointment was made which took the White House and Political Analysts by surprise. They expect to bring in Comey in to testify, as well. Some believe that could lead to meddling by the Trump administration.
