Russia investigation: Attorney General Rosenstein might recuse himself
19 Giugno, 2017, 06:50
CNN has learned members of the Trump transition team received a memo, urging all volunteers and aides to "preserve" any records relating to Russia, Ukraine or investigations into top Trump campaign officials in the inquiry.
"I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"
Sekulow said the president's comment was not a real statement, instead claiming it was in response to a Washington Postreport suggesting he is under investigation.
"We will enforce the embargo", the President said.
The rising criticism puts a new focus on the relationships between the president, special counsel and the Justice Department, especially as questions loom over whether Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will recuse himself from overseeing Mueller's probe. The attorney general was at a White House meeting when the notification came from Rosenstein, prompting the enraged President to scold the attorney general for the turn of events.
Rosenstein has defended Mueller and said he wouldn't fire him without good cause.
The president has denied that he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation and has also disputed that he's attempted to block the investigation into his campaign's possible role in Russia's election-related hacking.
Rosenstein may be a witness in the probe regarding the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. He then stated again that Trump was not being investigated.
"FBI agents and federal prosecutors have also been examining the finances of other Trump associates, said US officials familiar with the matter", the Post reported.
"But let me be very clear here, as it has been since the beginning, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction", he added. He has already been subpoenaed by the House Permanent Select Intelligence Committee. Trump had viewed Sessions' recusal as unnecessary, even though Justice Department regulations made it nearly impossible to avoid. If Trump fired Rosenstein, Brand might resign because she and Rosenstein were nominated together, have a close working relationship and went through their confirmation hearings as a team.
Vice president Mike Pence, who headed the Trump transition until Inauguration Day, has also hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe a nd Mr Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen has retained a brief to represent him.
Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday hired his own lawyer to represent him in the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation. The report came quietly but abruptly from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was brought to Capitol Hill shortly after Comey was sacked in order to fill in for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
In a series of statements on Twitter on Thursday, Mr Trump repeated his claim that Mr Mueller's investigation is a "WITCH HUNT" based on the "phoney" premise of possible collusion between Russian Federation and a cadre of Trump campaign associates.
