Trump blasts Mueller probe report

Trump blasts Mueller probe report

"And second, 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".

Though FBI director said that there was no direct request or order to drop the Flynn investigation from Trump, legal experts have confirmed that President Trump being the chief of the executive branch can even order the FBI to drop charges as he can pardon nearly anybody by the powers vested in him by the Constitution of the United States. "Nice", Trump tweeted, later repeating his accusation that the probe is a "witch hunt".

Details from some memos were made public in news media accounts in the days after he was sacked, and Comey himself detailed his conversations with Trump at a Senate hearing last week.

"As the deputy attorney general has said numerous times, if there comes a point when he needs to recuse, he will".

Also unclear was whether the president's comment confirming he was under investigation was based on direct knowledge or media reports that Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey last month.

Though Rosenstein's statement did not reference the Russian Federation investigation specifically, it was released hours after the Washington Post reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Jared Kushner - Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law - over his finances and business dealings. Thanks to his firing of Comey and Comey's personal memos that accuse #45 of trying to get him to drop the investigation against ex-national security adviser Michael Flynn, the President is reportedly now under investigation for obstruction of justice.

A source on Trump's legal team attempted to clarify the missive, claiming he was reacting to media reports about the investigation rather than offering public confirmation. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), who said she's anxious that the President will try to fire both Mueller and Rosenstein.

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 Trump's inauguration. "Sad!" the United States president tweeted. "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office".

The White House has denied any collusion, and Trump has repeatedly complained about the probe, saying Democrats can not accept his election win. Trump cited the memo in firing Comey.
