Trump spoke to witnesses over Russian Federation investigation

Trump spoke to witnesses over Russian Federation investigation

Despite detailing how Trump asked McGahn to tell deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that Mueller should be disqualified from overseeing the investigation and should be removed from the Russian Federation probe, the president said he didn't remember the discussion that way.

Mueller learned of the conversations when the witnesses and their lawyers informed him of them because they reportedly viewed the interactions as problematic.

Mr. Nader is an adviser to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates.

Mr Trump was said to have accused Mr Mueller of having conflicts of interest with the investigation and instructed Mr McGahn to request his dismissal.

Lionel Messi misses Barcelona's match 'for baby's birth'
Messi himself, meanwhile, has enjoyed another standout season for Barca in 2017-18, with 32 goals netted in just 41 appearances. Lionel Messi has been removed from Barcelona's squad that will face Malaga for "personal reasons".


The lawyers are also considering whether to seek an agreement with Mueller "on the scope of his questioning of the president", the Journal reported. Mr. Nader had been a consultant for Blackwater. The Times report claimed Mr McGahn had threatened to resign when the president told him to fire Mr Mueller.

The Wall Street Journal first reported on the prospect Friday but it appears Trump's attorneys have yet to reach a full consensus on the potential offer. McGahn did not release a statement contradicting the story and reportedly had to remind Trump that he did, in fact, ask him to dismiss the special counsel.

The aide, who was none other than former White House staff secretary and alleged domestic abuser Rob Porter, was also reportedly told McGahn could lose his job if he refused to dispute the story.

Apparently, President Donald Trump has a lot of questions for people who have been interviewed by the special counsel's investigators, according to a new report published by The New Times. The President has not been questioned by Mueller; Trump's lawyers are negotiating terms of a possible interview.

Winter Paralympics open in cheery mood
Following the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang , South Korea, the Paralympics are underway. North Korea and Georgia are sending two athletes each, while Tajikistan has only one.


One idea being floated is that Mueller would agree to wrap up the probe within 60 days of interviewing Trump.

It comes after Trump said Tuesday at the White House that Russians did interfere in America's last presidential election - and other countries probably did too - but cautioned that the USA will counteract any attempt at meddling in the November 2018 midterms.

A headline like "Trump Spoke to Witnesses About Matters They Discussed With Special Counsel" can seem tiresome in comparison.

When we don't do it, of course I am suffering like everyone else. "I am thankful that I have respect in the game". Wenger said it saddens him that football these days is all about winning, and not about the values of the game.
