Special counsel Mueller investigating Trump for obstruction of justice

19 Junio 2017, 06:15 | Crisanna Felipe

A few days later, Mr Trump individually asked Mr Coats and Mr Rogers to issue public statements to the effect that there was no evidence of co-ordination between his campaign and Russian Federation. No such conclusion has been reached.

One of President Donald Trump's personal lawyers said in television interviews on Sunday that the president was not under investigation for obstruction of justice, but when pressed on the assertion, said he was not certain. And Trump's attitude toward the investigation is getting worse and worse. How could any prosecutor fail to pursue this line of inquiry?

Citing unidentified sources, the news station reported that Rosenstein told Brand she would be tasked with the final decisions regarding resources made available for the probe, headed by special counsel and former FBI director Robert Mueller, and whether anyone is prosecuted because of the investigation.

"I don't think it's for me to say whether the conversation I had with the president was an effort to obstruct", Comey said in a June 8 hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Those very public actions and statements alone cry out for investigation.

Officials who worked for President Donald Trump's transition team have been directed to preserve all records that might be relevant to the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, according to a copy of the memo obtained by CNN. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich this week called Mueller "now clearly the tip of the deep state spear aimed at destroying or at a minimum undermining and crippling the Trump presidency".

The Post reported that Mueller and his team are interviewing senior intelligence officials about Trump's role, including Dan Coats, director of national intelligence; Mike Rogers, head of the National Security Agency; and Richard Ledgett, who recently left his role as Rogers' deputy.

According to the news accounts, neither Coats nor Rogers complied with Trump's requests.

All the stories about Mueller investigating Trump for possible obstruction cited anonymous sources.

To me, this looks, walks and quacks like a pattern.

In March, CNN reported Kushner had "relationship meetings" with Russia's ambassador Sergey Kislyak and with Russian banker Sergey Gorkov to discuss issues like sanctions.

Those are the prongs of the investigation - that we know of.

And while the Trump administration moves through what seems to be a neverending flood of revelations about Trump campaign and administration dealings with the Russians, the president's job approval ratings have also taken a deeper slide. Under the specific circumstances, however, with his longtime friend James Comey at the center of the inquiry, Mueller's the wrong choice. "I will defend the integrity of that investigation". Rosenstein also insisted Mueller's investigation would have the resources it needs.

President Trump on Friday continued to belittle the investigations of his White House, again using the term "witch hunt" to describe them.

But it is not.

Officials familiar with the matter describe friction on the Justice Department's fourth and fifth floors, home to the suite of offices belonging to the deputy attorney general and the attorney general, respectively, in part because of Rosenstein's handling of the Russian Federation matter. "That combination of things I had never experienced before, but it led me to believe I gotta write it down and I gotta write it down in a detailed way", he said, adding, "I knew there might come a day where I might need a record to defend not just myself but the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and our integrity".
