Former asst. special counsel: Don't expect public updates

Laurie Berry | 19 May, 2017, 23:59

The President also suggested that the investigation that will now be led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller was also motivated by an attempt to tarnish his election victory a year ago.

Trump claimed on Wednesday that "no politician in history" has been "treated worse" than him.

House and Senate investigators probing Russia's ties to the campaign of President Donald Trump promised Thursday they would continue on the same track amid questions of whether the appointment of Special Counsel Robert Mueller would curtail their work.

"He did acknowledge that he learned Comey would be removed prior to him writing his memo", McCaskill said.

Rosenstein, the No. 2 Justice Department official, named Mueller amid mounting pressure in Congress for an independent investigation beyond existing FBI and congressional probes into the Russian Federation issue.

The President issued a statement saying "A thorough investigation will confirm what we already know - there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity". "The acting attorney general has the authority to appoint a special counsel and has done so".

USA intelligence suspects that Russian President Vladimir Putin orchestrated a sweeping campaign to tilt the vote in the Republican's favor.

Flynn and other Trump campaign advisers were in contact with Russian officials and others with Kremlin ties in at least 18 calls and emails during the last seven months of the presidential race, Reuters reported on Thursday.

"With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!".

Zeidenberg was the assistant special counsel in the 2003 investigation into the leaking of the identity of Central Intelligence Agency officer Valerie Plame, which ultimately lead to Vice President Dick Cheney's advisor Scooter Libby being convicted of obstruction of justice, among other counts. "I believe that's why we're having this investigation - to find out if in fact there was collusion. And so, it's a very big investigation, and I think somebody that's as sophisticated as Bob Mueller is really the one to carry it out and see that it does not go awry, it does not overeach, but it's what it should be".

‎He said both Republicans and Democrats both applauded when he responded to a question about the ability of Mueller to decide the contours of the investigation. Another Republican congressman, Carlos Curbelo, said if any wrongdoing was uncovered, "Those people should be held accountable".

Rosenstein, according to his a copy of his prepared remarks at a briefing before the US House of Representatives, said that he learned on May 8 that Trump meant to fire Comey and that Trump sought Rosenstein's "advice and input" that same day. Rep. Seth Moulton (D-Mass.) of Salem - home to arguably the greatest actual witch hunt in American history. "I stand by it", Rosenstein's statement said.

One person who disagrees with the president? Senators coming out of that meeting told reporters that Rosenstein said Trump made it clear that he planned to fire Comey before Rosenstein wrote a memo outlining issues with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's flouting Justice Department protocol.

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary's website, the first written use of the term "witch hunt" dates to a December 1878 edition of the Tamworth Herald, a newspaper in England.
