Trump 'unlikely' to submit to interview with Robert Mueller

Trump 'unlikely' to submit to interview with Robert Mueller

While sources say Mr. Mueller is "obsessed" with examining Mr. Trump's network of business interests for potential money laundering infractions, there is a raging debate among legal scholars over whether that actually falls within the special counsel's mandate. Mr Trump's lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with requests in the probe, which has already resulted in charges against four of Trump's campaign advisers. "I mean certainly we'll see what happens - when they have no collusion and nobody's found any collusion at any level it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview". "It's a Democrat hoax".

As the NYT notes: "That answer was a marked change from June, when Mr. Trump defended his firing of the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, denying that it was related to his handling of the Russian Federation investigation, and said he would be '100 percent' willing to give a sworn statement to Mr. Mueller".

Per a new report by CNN today, it would appear that those close to Trump are advising him to stay away from Mueller and not submit to an interview request. That's the second tweet the president sent from his Twitter account, the individual said.

Feinstein faces a primary from California state Senate leader Kevin de Leon.

In an initial tweet he said the section 702 provision had been used by the Obama administration to "so badly surveil and abuse the Trump campaign", suggesting he was opposed to the bill.

"Every single witness we've interviewed has been consistent on what they have testified to", he said. The former general admitted to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation officials about his meetings, which centered on possibly lifting sanctions placed by the Obama administration after Trump took power.

At Wednesday's joint press conference with the Norwegian prime minister, Erna Solberg, Trump again protested his innocence with a defence that included the unexpected argument that his defeated election rival, Hillary Clinton, would have played into Russia's hands by favouring windmills.

The transcript of the interview with Simpson that Feinstein released earlier this week buttresses that point. Chuck Grassley. She is the top Democrat on the panel.

Glenn R. Simpson, co-founder of the research firm Fusion GPS, arrives for a scheduled appearance before a closed House Intelligence Committee hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington.

The material wasn't classified, and Feinstein said Wednesday that she didn't do anything illegal.


As the top Democrat on the committee, she did not need authorization from Grassley to release it, she said. The phenomenon has inspired Democrats across Congress to strike out on their own, drafting reports and publicizing findings to date from the various Russian Federation probes underway in the House and Senate.

I don't think Mueller will see it the same way.

Trump says the "so-called bipartisan" deal "was a big step backwards" because it doesn't fund a wall along the Mexican border.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican who serves on the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, said it would make sense for the President to be "cooperative". "And I respect that very much and that this is an issue for American politics", she said.

Mr Trump has derided the dossier as a politically motivated hit job.

Republicans who spent the early months of 2017 working with Democrats on investigations into Russian interference in USA elections have pivoted as the new year begins and midterm elections loom, leaving the conclusions of those congressional probes in doubt.

"Absolutely not", one unidentified man said.

What is public record, so far, is that the Clinton campaign and DNC hired the firm through Marc Elias, a lawyer with the firm Perkins Coie, to conduct research on Trump and Russian Federation.

In October, Mr Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, and his business associate Rick Gates were accused of conspiring to defraud the United States in dealings with Ukraine. No matter how often Trump insists the issue is "fake news", the media can't stop asking about Russian Federation.
