Trump not under investigation in Russia probe

Trump not under investigation in Russia probe

"Witch Hunt", he wrote on Twitter.

Deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein has replaced Attorney-General Jeff Sessions as head of the Russia-Trump probe. They have tried to highlight the positive reviews he received Wednesday when he made a statesman-like appearance in the White House to address the nation after Rep. Steve Scalise was shot during a congressional baseball practice.

TODD: The president said to Lester Holt that he had already made the decision to fire James Comey. 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.

TAPPER: Well, I wish it were that simple but, with all due respect, the president said, "I am being investigated" in a tweet, and people take his word on that, but you're his attorney - you're saying that the president, when he said that, was... not accurate.

This is what has the president up in arms. Every development in the story so far, however, lends plausibility to the claim that Trump didn't fire Comey to terminate the Russian Federation investigation, he did so out of frustration with Comey's unwillingness to defend him in public.

On Twitter Friday, Trump wrote as part of a tweet about the probe that "I am being investigated".

The president has denied that he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation and has also disputed that he's attempted to block the investigation into his campaign's possible role in Russia's election-related hacking.

"He takes the action that they also, by the way, recommended".

NPR reckons Comey laid out a good case for obstruction of Justice that Robert Mueller could build on.

Russian officials have repeatedly denied any Moscow's interference in the United States presidential election, saying such allegations are aimed at distracting public attention from instances of actual election fraud and corruption as well as other pressing domestic issues. But America's laws today are a web in which even the most innocuous citizen can get tangled-a citizen who has business dealings with figures as corrupt as many Russian businessmen and officials tend to be is nearly certainly open to prosecution on one technicality or another, as is anyone who talks to federal investigators and tells even the smallest of lies. For a person to be convicted of obstructing justice, they must not only have the specific intent to obstruct the proceeding, but the person must know (1) that a proceeding was actually pending at the time; and (2) there must be a nexus between the defendant's endeavor to obstruct justice and the proceeding, and the defendant must have knowledge of this nexus. "You're asking me now questions about what people are thinking in their minds", Sekulow told Wallace. I stayed in my chair. It was a tactic that earned him incredulous pushback from his interviewers, all of whom pointed to Trump's own tweets. The last person to leave was Jared Kushner, who also stood by my chair and exchanged pleasantries with me.

"That bill is not going to go from that group to the President's desk", Rubio said.

Reports have raised questions about whether Trump requested their help in trying to get James Comey, then the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, to end an inquiry into Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. "He is a good guy". Members of Trump's transition team are being told to preserve materials that might be relevant to the special counsel's investigation.

Wallce: Sir, you just said two times that he's being investigated.
