Mueller Probing Ukrainian's 2015 Donation to Trump Foundation
Apr 10, 2018, 19:23
PresidentDonald Trump has lashed out against special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, branding it "an attack on our country" and exhibiting mounting concern about the yearlong probe after federal authorities raided the offices of his personal attorney.
Trump appeared to directly float the idea of firing special counsel Robert Mueller at the start of his military leadership meeting on Monday, calling the special counsel's investigation a "disgrace" and defending his firing of former FBI Director James Comey as the "right thing" to do.
The foundation said the donation was "a specific request of Mr. Trump Foundation in September of 2015 when there were multiple candidates for the Republican nomination for president and it was by no means assured that Mr. Trump would be the Republican nominee in 2016".
Trump, speaking Monday to reporters at the White House, defended Cohen as a "good man" and blasted Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe as "an attack on our country, in a true sense". "Well I think it's a disgrace", Trump said at the White House.
On Syria, Mr. Trump said, "We're going to make a decision tonight, and you'll be hearing the decision", though probably "after the fact", He also suggested that we can't let atrocities like chemical attacks happen - "because of the power of our country we're able to stop that", he said. "Many people have said 'you should fire him.'" Firing Mueller could kick off a constitutional crisis in the United States, and would spark hundreds of pre-planned protests across the country.
