Mueller removed top Federal Bureau of Investigation agent over possible anti-Trump texts

Mueller removed top Federal Bureau of Investigation agent over possible anti-Trump texts

Mr Trump has been publicly dismissive of Mr Comey and of special counsel Robert Mueller's continuing investigation, and was often generous in his appraisal of Flynn, except to say his adviser could not stay in the job after misleading his vice president.

"I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the Federal Bureau of Investigation", tweeted Trump. Court records say Flynn contacted the Russian ambassador on December 22 about the Trump administration's opposition to a United Nations resolution against Israeli settlements.

Netflix gives two-season order to Sabrina adaptation
Expanding the Archie Comics universe may ultimately prove harder for The CW than for Netflix, even though Warner Bros. The original plan was to have Sabrina show up during an episode of Riverdale before spinning-off into her own series.


The officials were not named in court papers, but people familiar with the case identified two of them to The Associated Press as Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law, and former Deputy National Security Adviser KT McFarland, now up for an ambassadorship. At about 2 a.m., Mr. Strzok wrote an email to Mr. Comey and scheduled it to send at 6 a.m.

Spicer's comments indicated Flynn's ouster was driven by Trump's frustration that the adviser had misled Vice President Pence and others and not the fact he discussed sanctions with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Palestinian shot dead by Israeli settlers in Nablus
The military would not say where the shooter was, saying only that the incident was being investigated. Palestinian Authority official Ghassan Daghlas said settlers confronted Odeh and ordered him to move.


Flynn, the longtime soldier, stood quietly during his plea hearing except to answer brief questions from the judge. The White House later explained Flynn's ouster by saying he had lost the trust of both Trump and Pence.

Flynn also urged Kislyak to not retaliate against sanctions the Obama administration had placed on Russian Federation over its election meddling in a phone call he discussed with another top transition official, who has been identified in news reports as KT MacFarland - the former deputy national security adviser who is now awaiting confirmation for the United States ambassador to Singapore. "He has pled guilty to those lies", Trump tweeted. He has agreed to cooperate with the investigation. Trump tweeted from his personal account Saturday. She has said she expected the White House to take action. "Yet Trump tried to influence or stop the FBI investigation on Flynn", Lieu tweeted. He may think changing the subject from Flynn's crimes - and bombshell reporting that Flynn plans to testify against Trump - to the GOP tax scam will be good for him, but the American people see through that, too. Comey has said he found the encounter so shocking that he prepared an internal memo about it. The New York Times and Washington Post report that the agent, Peter Strzok, as the FBI's deputy head of counterintelligence, played a major role in the investigations into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as well as the possible links between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.
