Mueller Removed FBI Agent From Russia Investigation Over Possible Anti-Trump Texts

US President Donald Trump has defended the actions of his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, saying they were "lawful".

Steve Vladeck, a CNN legal contributor and professor at the University of Texas Law School, said Trump's tweet "certainly implies that, at the time the President fired then-FBI Director Comey, he knew that Flynn had committed a felony". During that probe and the 2016 presidential election, Strzok and an Federal Bureau of Investigation colleague exchanged texts that disparaged then-Republican candidate Donald Trump and favoured Clinton, his Democratic rival, the Washington Post said.

"No I'm not", Trump said in his first public remarks on the plea deal. Comey has said that Trump the following day brought up the Flynn investigation in private at the White House and told him that he hoped he could "let this go". The developments are a sign that the investigation is intensifying, and details revealed Friday provide the clearest picture yet of coordination between Flynn and other Trump advisers in their contact with Russian officials to influence worldwide policy.

In what appeared to be moves undermining the policies of outgoing president Barack Obama, the pair discussed U.S. sanctions on Russian Federation, and Flynn asked Kislyak to help delay a United Nations vote seen as damaging to Israel, according to prosecutors.

Critics claimed on Saturday that President Trump inadvertently admitted to obstruction of justice as he tried to distance himself from his disgraced national security adviser Michael Flynn. Not only did a lengthy list of his own advisers make secret contact with Russian officials during the campaign, but his own family members did. No collusion. There's been absolutely, absolutely no collusion, so we're very happy.

After landing in New York City, Trump's motorcade drove near several hundred protesters decrying the tax bill and his administration's entanglement in the Russian Federation probe.

Flynn was charged on Thursday with one count of lying about his private discussions with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian ambassador, regarding United States sanctions being imposed on Moscow by the government of then president Barack Obama.

Mr. Mueller's investigators have learned through witnesses and documents that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu asked the Trump transition team to lobby other countries to help Israel, according to two people briefed on the inquiry. "Something lovely is going to come out of that mixer", Trump said. The White House said Comey was dismissed on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
