Senate Judiciary Committee also demands Comey memos, Trump tapes

Senate Judiciary Committee also demands Comey memos, Trump tapes

Sen. Charles Grassley, the chairman of the committee, and Democratic Sen. Democrats ought to realize that their doomsday rhetoric about Donald Trump hasn't changed since the election, making every subsequent repetition of those words that much more worthless.

"President Trump is not above the law", Green stated in a press release on his website.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) said Wednesday that Congress needs to respond to the latest allegations facing the Trump administration by gathering facts in a "responsible, sober" manner. "It is obvious there are some people out there who want to harm the president".

At a Federalist Society event today in Washington, Mukasey said it would have been inappropriate for Trump to have asked Comey in an informal manner to drop the Flynn case, though he said the president has the power to order investigations to cease. Trump fired Comey last week.

Trump denies asking Comey to stop Flynn probe
Trump says, "we want to bring this country of ours together". "Zero", he said during the joint news conference at the White House. President Trump publicly denied for the first time that he had tried to pressure former FBI director James B.


"I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go", Trump told Comey, according to the memo as reported by the Times.

As special prosecutor, Mueller will have all the same powers as a US attorney, though he will still ultimately report to Rosenstein.

But a leading U.S. Republican politician said he would have little faith in any notes Putin might supply.

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said in a statement Wednesday that Mueller is "a respected public servant of the highest integrity". "Director Mueller will still be in the chain of command under the Trump-appointed leadership of the Justice Department".

Former teammates Mariano Rivera , Paul ONeill, Tino Martinez, David Cone and Hideki Matsui also were on hand. In the postseason - with the pressure ratcheted up in every at-bat - he hit.308 with an.838 OPS.


In 1998, the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in In re Lindsey that White House deputy counsel Bruce Lindsey could not assert attorney-client privilege to avoid testifying before a grand jury investigating President Bill Clinton's administration.

The committee gave McCabe until Wednesday, May 24, to fulfill the request.

Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski said on Wednesday it may be time for an independent commission or special prosecutor, expressing concern about "the continuous and often conflicting reports about President Trump, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Russian Federation". "Impeccable credentials. Should be widely accepted". King says, "I'm anxious with all special counsels because there's no control over them and they can abuse their power".

The Comey memo caused alarm on Capitol Hill and raised questions about whether Trump attempted to interfere with a federal investigation, something that might constitute obstruction of justice and could potentially be invoked in an attempt to impeach Trump.

Cunha has been found guilty of taking millions of dollars in bribes in Brazil's giant Petrobras oil company embezzlement scandal. Mr Neves is being investigated in several corruption cases related to the " Car Wash " probe into kickbacks to politicians.


It's worth pointing out that President Clinton brought in private counsel, David Kendall of Williams & Connolly, early in the Whitewater probe, before the appointment of independent counsel Ken Starr.
