Trump Has 'Clear Intent to Influence This Russian Investigation — CNN's Cuomo

19 May 2017, 10:52 | Terri Saunders

The focus now turns to how Mueller will pick up the FBI's investigation of the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and what it means for the White House.

Faso, R-Kinderhook, who represents New York's 19th Congressional District, said Thursday that the Justice Department's selection of Mueller, a former FBI director, ensures a credible investigation. He did not offer any evidence of such acts in his reference to Democratic former President Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Former FBI director Robert Mueller is the flawless choice to lead an investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, biographer Garrett Graff says.

A new deputy attorney general could then fire Mueller or scuttle the investigation.

Mr Comey succeeded him, having been appointed by Mr Obama.

Trump had been relatively quiet on Twitter over the prior two days, issuing only a handful of official announcements about meeting with a foreign leader, and delivering a commencement speech.

In the ensuing crisis, the White House tried to authorize the program without DOJ approval.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos arrived in Washington on Thursday to meet with President Donald Trump.

The tactic carries great risk.

A Gallup tracking poll put Trump's approval rating at a historically low 38 percent, even before the latest wave of scandals. Mueller, who is well-regarded by both parties, was a name welcomed by Democrats and by some Republicans, as well.

Attacking him could alienate Republican leaders in Washington and elsewhere. The president does not need tougher tweets or a more rapid defense. "There has been no collusion", Trump said.

What can a special counsel do? They have no problem slamming him.

Mueller III's appointment as special counsel may actually be good news for this administration.

The ranking Democrat on the committee, Sen.

In a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 78 percent of respondents said they would rather see the investigation led by an independent commission or special prosecutor, versus one led by Congress.

Rosenstein was originally invited by the two Senate leaders, Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Democrat Chuck Schumer of NY, to explain Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.

A lot. He was the Acting United States Attorney for the District of MA under President Reagan, the United States Attorney for the Northern District of California under the first President Bush and then under President Clinton, the Deputy Attorney General under the second President Bush, and the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the second President Bush and President Obama.

The FBI and Congress are looking into potential links between Mr Trump's campaign team and Russian Federation.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein knew former FBI Director James Comey was going to be fired before he wrote the memo supporting his dismissal, senators briefed on the situation have claimed.

But Trump's problems do not end on the home front.

Comey had written a memo after the meeting, The Times reported, in which Comey had quoted the president saying, "I hope you can let this go".

"This was a DOJ decision", Spicer told reporters on May 9, referring to the Department of Justice. "My advice to him is to just stay disciplined, stay focused, and deliver on the world stage".

But even if the White House does all of these things, the $64,000 question is: Will the presence of a special counsel and its ominous potential muzzle the president? He also appeared bored or distracted when Erdogan spoke, coming to life when the Turkish president injected some fulsome praise for Trump and his election victory.

Whether the Republicans begin to call for his impeachment, they shouldn't have supported Trump in the first place.

It must be demoralizing for the White House staff to witness Trump's reaction.

Adding to the drama, Comey apparently kept exacting notes and memos describing his private meetings with Trump, evidence that could prove crucial if Mueller's investigation determines there was an effort by the White House - or Trump himself - to obstruct Comey's Russian Federation investigation. "Trump will eat of lot of that up".
