Donald Trump Is Being Investigated For Obstruction Of Justice & 'Possible Financial Crimes'!

Rosenstein is overseeing the investigation into Russian meddling, though it is being spearheaded by a special prosecutor, Robert Mueller.

Mr Robert Mueller, the special counsel named by the department to investigate the Russian Federation matter, is now examining whether Mr Trump or others sought to obstruct the probe, a person familiar with the inquiry said on Thursday. Was it Rosenstein, who wrote the memo criticizing Comey's handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server that Trump initially cited in firing Comey on May 9?

"Mueller is compromised by the close professional - and I would sure think personal - relationship with Comey", said Bill Otis, the former special counsel for President George H.W. Bush.

While Mueller is now leading the investigation, Rosenstein still maintains the authority to make final decisions about adding resources and personnel to the probe - and most critically, over whether any prosecutions should be pursued. He pretends there has already been a finding that there was no collusion between anyone involved in his presidential campaign and the Russian attempt to meddle in our election.

Mueller reports to Rosenstein on budget and staffing needs for his team.

It's unclear why Rosenstein issued the warning or whether anyone prompted him to do so.

Rosenstein had written to Trump recommending Comey's firing. That had not happened as of Friday afternoon, but the possibility remains. He could order Rosenstein to do so, but under federal regulations Rosenstein would need to show "good cause" to fire Mueller.

His tweets come as Mr Trump marks two years since announcing his plan to run for president.

Manafort, Page and Stone have also been linked to the Russian Federation investigations.

"The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations".

Still, attacking the Department of Justice while it is conducting a probe of Trump's own actions seems particularly misguided, and Democrats in Congress saw an easy opening. If he fires Rosenstein, Brand would lead the department.

HORSLEY: It's a - it was a very unusual statement from the deputy attorney general.

At a ceremony last month to welcome Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, the Justice Department's third-ranking official, Rosenstein joked awkwardly about being at the center of criticism since taking office, according to people who were in the room. Someone else would have to fill that role.

He appeared to be referring to Rod Rosenstein, deputy attorney general who is now leading the probe.

Cohen has worked for Trump since the mid-2000s and was active in the campaign.

Former FBI chief James Comey's testimony has clearly stated that Trump tried to stop the investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. But that doesn't appear to violate any ethics rules, either, Slansky said. "Nearly everyone agrees that the Director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives", Rosenstein said in his memo.

"The president is the president of the United States, so they are considered official statements of the president of the United States", Spicer said. "There is too much cross-pollination between his background and that of James Comey". "That is an encompassing standard...that should be interpreted broadly so that the public will have maximum confidence in the outcome of the special counsel's work, however it winds up".

United States President Donald Trump today appeared to confirm a Washington Post report that he is being investigated for firing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

He also claimed that the person investigating him advised him to fire Comey, though it's unclear whom he was referring to.
