Russian Federation probe: Tweet, taunt not enough for Trump
Russian Federation probe: Tweet, taunt not enough for Trump

Rosenstein named former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate the baseless allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation to interfere in the 2016 election. Could this lead down the road to President Trump's impeachment?
"I think a lot of members want the special counsel to be appointed, but don't understand that you're pretty well knocked out of the game", Graham said.
USA president Donald Trump has claimed he is the victim of an unprecedented "witch hunt" that "hurts our country terribly" in the wake of an independent probe into claims of Russian Federation links. "There is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign". Tim Scott, R-S.C. "I do think that the special prosecutor provides a sense of calm and confidence perhaps for the American people, which is incredibly important".
Durbin said that Rosenstein said that Mueller would draw the scope of the investigation, have sufficient resources and won't be interfered with by the administration.
Trump said at a news conference Thursday that he had thought the firing would be a popular action, and that his decision was at least party based on Comey's "poor performance" in testifying before Congress a few weeks earlier. Comey, who was then serving as deputy attorney general, tapped Patrick Fitzgerald to lead the probe, which led to the conviction of a top White House official. "I actually thought that when I made that decision. that it would be a bipartisan decision, because you look at all the people on the Democratic side that were saying very bad things about Director Comey". But GOP lawmakers have grown increasingly anxious after Trump fired Comey, who had been leading the bureau's probe - and after Comey associates said he had notes from a meeting in which Trump asked him to shut down the investigation into the Russian Federation ties of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
Despite the appointment, at least three congressional committees are continuing their investigations, leading to some turf warfare and sniping as the Senate Intelligence Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee both sought to lay claim to testimony from Comey, while the House Oversight Committee also hoped to hear from the former director.
Bash was giddy as he touted how Mueller "has a very broad mandate" and "can investigate not just ties between Russian Federation and Trump, but 'any other matters that arise.'" He concluded: "That's a very expansive phrase.that gives him a broad mandate to investigate obstruction of justice and other matters".
In a briefing with news anchors, Trump said the probe - to be led by former Federal Bureau of Investigation director Robert Mueller - "hurts our country terribly".
Trump decried the appointment of the special counsel as "the single greatest witch-hunt" in United States history.
But early yesterday, he took to Twitter, writing: "With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!"
And even if Trump's campaign is ultimately cleared of wrongdoing, the shadow of an investigation will hang over the White House for months or even years.
Daria Roithmayr, constitutional law expert, professor and chair of law at USC spoke EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife.com about what this investigation means and if it could lead to the end of President Trump's run in the White House. "You can't let them get you down, you can't let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams".
