Graham: Russia investigation now a criminal one

They also grilled him yesterday on the timeline of his controversial memo that Trump used as a rationale for sacking Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey last week, with two senators saying Rosenstein acknowledged he knew before writing his brief that the president was going to fire Comey.

Justice Department officials said Mueller would likely conduct his investigation nearly entirely independent of Congress. But congressional investigators must take pains not to bump heads with the FBI's inquiry.

A key issue Mueller may have to tackle is whether Trump has committed obstruction of justice, an offence that could be used in any effort in Congress to impeach him and remove him from office. Trump said in a tweet. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). No criminal investigation of Flynn has ever been publicly confirmed.

The potential problems aren't confined to witnesses. He also has broad authority to chase the leads wherever they may go. "So I think the biggest legal change seems to be that Mr. Mueller is going to proceed forward with the idea that this as criminal investigation instead of a counter intelligence investigation".

Rosenstein is scheduled to address the House of Representatives on Friday.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) later confirmed what McCaskill had said.

"It may mean that for a while, the congressional investigations will focus more on preparation for the 2018 and 2020 elections, consequences of Russian intrusion", suggested Sen. Christopher A. Coons (D-Del.), a Judiciary Committee member.

Mueller earned degrees from Princeton University and New York University then enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corp in 1968.

The Russia matter has consumed Washington and overshadowed Republican legislative priorities including a planned healthcare overhaul and sweeping tax cuts, something the party had hoped to make rapid progress on given its control of the White House and both chambers of Congress. Our investigation is a counterintelligence one.

The next day, Trump invited Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak to the White House for a meeting. But Chaffetz revealed Thursday that he is leaving Congress at the end of June.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) thinks the probe into ties with Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign has flat-out become a criminal investigation. "That doesn't stop us from doing our jobs to work on people's problems".

The role of a special counsel in.

You can't get more bipartisan or trustworthy than this man.

"The takeaway I had is that everything he said is that you need to treat this investigation as if it may be a criminal investigation", Graham said.

He said it "shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not unified country" and is "a very, very negative thing".

"There needs to be a relationship with that investigation where they can say with confidence, 'This really is a problem for us, ' or 'Hey, we'd rather you didn't do it, but it's not a problem, ' " Blunt said.

He explained that a special counsel has many powers.

Professor David Pearl, who teaches at Shasta College, has studied special counsels and his peers refer to him as an expert. Taking to Twitter, Mr. Trump called it the greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history. But that possibility is a long way off, lawmakers said.

When asked if it's time to be talking about impeachment Pearl said "not at all" he said it's "way premature".
