Trump Had Second Thoughts About Firing Flynn, Still Supports Him
May 23, 2017, 01:23
These developments come in the wake of the Justice Department's appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller who was the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director to investigate into the alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Pelosi tells The Associated Press in an interview Friday that "every day the president gives us more reason to believe that he does not respect the office that he holds".
"We are confident that when these inquiries are complete there will be no evidence to support any collusion between the campaign and Russian Federation", a White House official told CNN in a statement, adding: "This matter is not going to distract the president or this administration from its work to bring back jobs and keep America safe".
The Justice Department on Friday distributed prepared remarks that Rosenstein delivered to Congress in separate briefings.
A majority of Americans - 85 percent - also believe Trump talked about the Russian Federation probe with former FBI Director James Comey, who had been leading the bureau's investigation.
A second bombshell came from the Washington Post, which reported that a federal investigation about Russian contacts with the Trump campaign previous year had reached a current White House official, who was not named.
"Everybody, even my enemies, have said there is no collusion", he maintained.
Trump reportedly added, "I'm not under investigation".
But lawyers in the White House counsel's office have consulted experts in impeachment during the past week and have begun collecting information on how such proceedings would work, a person briefed on the matter told CNN. At no time during their meeting, which was off-limits to American news media, did anyone discuss the reports of Chechnya's roundup, detention, torture and murder of gay and bisexual men, which a Russian investigation now claims is just "propaganda". The statement from Trump seemed to suggest that the FBI investigation, at least in part, affected his decision to fire Comey. "I stand by it", Rosenstein underscored.
Trott says Rosenstein answered that he didn't want to interfere with the independent investigation that will now be run by former FBI chief Robert Mueller.
Trump has reacted furiously to the appointment but Democrats and even many Republicans have generally welcomed it.
"It explicitly usurped the role of the attorney general, the deputy attorney general and the entire Department of Justice", Rosenstein said of that public announcement. "The investigation would have always continued, and obviously the termination of Comey would not have ended it".
"It does not deter us", Green said of the threats.
