Trump May Be Laying Groundwork to Fire Mueller — WashPost

19 Junio 2017, 09:01 | Crisanna Felipe

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.

Now they go for obstruction of justice - phony story. Or it could just be Trump spouting off on Twitter. "Witch Hunt", the president wrote.

Another White House official told the Daily Beast it would "suicide" for Trump to get rid of the special counsel. Susan Collins of ME told reporters.

Wallace asked Sekulow if Trump believes that Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who wrote a memo criticizing Comey's handling of the Clinton email investigation, has done anything wrong.

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.

Tensions escalated with Mueller's latest moves.

Did Trump block Russian Federation probe?

In a series of tweets, Trump lashed out against the investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 election. Comey also testified Trump had directed him to drop a related investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Among them are James Quarles and Jeannie Rhee, both of whom Mueller brought over from his old firm, WilmerHale.

"We worked through all of that", Burr told reporters.

"We'll be meeting with him in the next few days". Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the committee, in a secure room. Trump advisers describe the president as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy.

To say that Painter is biased against President Trump would be an understatement.

Corallo didn't elaborate on why he singled out the Federal Bureau of Investigation as the source of information.

Last week, Trump sent a tweet referring to being the victim of a "witch hunt". Trump said last week he felt vindicated by Comey's 8 June testimony that he was not the subject of investigation while Comey headed the agency. "The continued illegal leaks are the only crime here". The Republican president has repeatedly complained about the probe, calling it a witch hunt and saying Democrats can not accept his election victory.

One White House official said Trump doesn't think the tweets will have any legal ramifications against him. Trump also, as he often does, referred to the investigation as the "single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history".

Trump on Friday morning boasted about the power of his Twitter feed.

Pence hired Richard Cullen, chairman of law firm McGuireWoods, to help him respond to inquiries from Mueller, a spokesman said.

"In the twilight of the Bush administration, we don't need an acting USA attorney in Maryland", Mikulski said at the time.

His time under Bush, Obama and then Trump made him the longest-serving US attorney in the nation's history when he was confirmed to his current role under Sessions.

"He (Trump) is not afraid of the investigation - there is no investigation", Sekulow said, stressing that "there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period". The California congressman said that the president and his associates are engaged in a scorched earth litigation strategy that begins with discrediting Mueller.
