Russian Federation inquiry: I'm under investigation
Russian Federation inquiry: I'm under investigation
19 Giugno, 2017, 06:20
Trump had received private assurances from then-FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation.
"This is a man who's trying to 'restore public confidence in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, ' she said".
Hours after Mr Trump's tweet, a source close to his outside legal team said the President did not intend his tweet to be confirmation of the investigation but rather was a reaction to a Washington Post story about the probe from Wednesday (local time).
As for who the president is referring to, the most likely option is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel.
"This is playing out in real time". When Comey was deputy attorney general in the Bush administration, he appointed a close friend and former colleague, Patrick Fitzgerald, as special counsel to investigate who leaked the identity of Valerie Plame, a covert Central Intelligence Agency officer.
Trump on Friday said the person conducting that probe was the individual who had told him to dismiss James Comey, who had been at the head of the bureau from 2013 until he was sacked early last month.
"Even his staunchest supporters will balk at such a blatant effort to subvert the law". "It would be standard practice for the special counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to Russian Federation".
"Creating written records immediately after one-on-one conversations with Mr. Trump was my practice from that point forward", Comey said in a written statement, which was released ahead of his open testimony before the committee. But Comey has testified under oath that in a private meeting, Trump raised the investigation of fired national security adviser Michael Flynn - part of the larger Russian Federation probe - and said, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".
"Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous 'officials, ' particularly when they do not identify the country..." where the source originates.
"Americans should be sceptical about anonymous allegations". "You have somebody with this type of reputation, with praise from across the board, who was confirmed 94-6".
Tim Maloney, a Maryland lawyer who has worked with Rosenstein, said he is going to handle the decision of whether to recuse himself in the oversight of the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation "by the book". "However nothing has changed".
If Trump's goal is to limit Mueller's probe or force him out, Republican Senator John McCain of Arizona said this week, "that would be disastrous for him". "He is a good guy".
Mueller continues to hire a team of lawyers, and with FBI investigators is gathering information that is widely expected to lead to a formal investigation into whether President Trump attempted to interfere in the investigation.
United States President, Donald Trump, has acknowledged he is under investigation in the inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in a year ago presidential election held in his country.
Rosenstein could eventually be questioned by Mueller about his memo on Comey and what motivated Trump to ask him to write it. ABC said Rosenstein told Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand she would have authority over the probe if he were to step aside.
Mueller's team of killers vs. Trump's amateurs?
His time under Bush, Obama and then Trump made him the longest-serving US attorney in the nation's history when he was confirmed to his current role under Sessions. Trump named Boente as acting attorney general in late January after firing Sally Yates for refusing to defend his original travel ban.
Starr, whose investigation into former President Bill Clinton began with a look into the Whitewater real estate deal but eventually grew to cover the Monica Lewinsky scandal, wrote of the importance of having an "outside investigation" that can skirt potential conflict of interest concerns when investigating matters on the executive branch - no matter whether suspicion of the President falls "rightly or wrongly". Alternatively, Trump could name a new acting deputy attorney general.
