Trump cries witch hunt amid Russian Federation probe


He could fire him directly, although that would draw the most ire; he could direct Rosenstein to fire him, but the deputy testified last week that he'd only fire the counsel for "good cause;" Trump could fire Rosenstein and see if his replacement will fire Mueller.

"Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations", Rosenstein said.

"After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my 'collusion with the Russians, ' nobody has been able to show any proof", Trump wrote Friday morning. Trump tweeted. "I can go around them".

"The message the president is sending through his tweets is that he believes the rule of law doesn't apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired", she said. The White House has used a memo he wrote to justify Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, but that Trump action may now be part of the probe.

Trump also appeared to put Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in his crosshairs.

Trump Adopts Harder Line On Cuba
It seeks to force Cuba to hold free and fair elections, release political prisoners, and allow political and religious freedom. Cafe Versailles, in the heart of Miami's "little Havana", may not be the heartbeat for the Cuban-American movement in the U.S.


Mr Rosenstein has said privately he may need to recuse himself from matters relating to the Russian Federation probe because he could become a witness in the investigation, ABC News reported on Friday.

In response to the statement, former US Attorney Preet Bharara, whom Trump fired in March, tweeted early Friday morning that "Americans should also exercise caution before accepting as true lies about firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director & defamation of a war hero special counsel", references to criticisms Trump has levied against Mueller and James Comey.

Vnesheconombank says that Gorkov's meeting with Kushner was to discuss real estate business, of which the president's son-in-law was the head.

A Trump's transition official confirmed the lawyer's internal order, which was sent on Thursday.

The White House has directed questions to outside legal counsel, which has not responded. However, he has frequently described reports about possible ties between members of his campaign and Russian Federation as a "witch-hunt".

Brexit secretary David Davis will travel to the Belgian capital for talks with the EU's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier. Sinn Fein have warned that any deal with the DUP could wreck the Northern Ireland peace process.


Vice President Mike Pence has also hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.

The latest White House crisis struck on the evening of Trump's 71st birthday, after a day in which he had won plaudits for his handling of the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise.

After the firestorm caused by Comey's firing, Rosenstein appointed Mueller, Comey's predecessor as FBI director, to take over the DOJ Russia investigation.

Trump's tweet Friday morning came after a series of angry tweets Wednesday in which he also complained about a "witch hunt" and criticized the investigation into ties between his campaign and Russia as "a phony collusion with the Russians story".

Several news reports said Mueller plans to interview key USA national security officials about Trump's comments seeking an end to the investigation of contacts his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had with Russia's ambassador to Washington, Sergey Kislyak.
