Donald Trump 'yells at TVs in the White House' about Russian Federation investigation

U.S. President Donald J. Trump delivers remarks on Donald Trump 'yells at TVs in the White House' about Russian Federation investigation

President Donald Trump acknowledged on Friday he is under investigation in a probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential race and possible collusion by his campaign - and seemed to assail the Justice Department official overseeing the inquiry.

The Post's report indicated that Robert Mueller, who was already involved in the investigation into whether Russian Federation had a hand in the 2016 election, "is interviewing senior intelligence officials as part of a widening probe that now includes an examination of whether Trump attempted to obstruct justice".

Top Trump ally New Gingrich warns that if false and/or compromising information continues to leak out of former FBI Director Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in 2016, the deputy attorney general might have to appoint a special counsel to investigate the current special counsel's investigation.

However, the Justice Department spokesman Ian Prior said Friday Rosenstein sees no reason at this point to recuse himself, however, adding, "As the deputy attorney general has said numerous times, if there comes a point when he needs to recuse, he will".

Representative Adam Schiff has said Trump and his legal team seem determined to "take down" Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Were Rosenstein to recuse himself, Mueller's fate would be in the hands of a new party, who may be convinced by the President that he should be let go. And, short of firing Mueller - which would be political suicide for Trump - he just has to wait and see how it plays out.

Rosenstein's role is under scrutiny now that it appears Mueller's probe could be broadened to investigate obstruction of justice, which could include the president's firing of Comey.


The tweets came shortly after Rosenstein issued his unusual statement that appeared to be warning about the accuracy of such reports. But a department official said no one asked for the statement and Rosenstein acted on his own.

At a ceremony last month to welcome Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand, the Justice Department's third-ranking official, Rosenstein joked awkwardly about being at the center of criticism since taking office, according to people who were in the room.

Comey testified it would be up to Mueller to decide whether Trump's action amounted to obstruction of justice, an act that could be cited in any effort in the Republican-led Congress to impeach him and remove him from office.

Vice President Mike Pence has hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe.

Trump has denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation.

Meanwhile, another lawyer, Washington veteran John Dowd, has joined the Trump legal team.
