Senate Intel Panel Won't Probe if Trump Obstructed Justice

Acilia Dean | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:29

Trump, however, referred to the Post's reporting as a "phony" story in a tweet Thursday.

Special Counsel Mueller likely "will be archiving these various Twitter rants as supplemental evidence" for the obstruction investigation, Moss, who also is deputy executive director of the James Madison Project, told VOA.

It also also heard from Attorney General Jeff Sessions about the Comey-Trump meeting and talked to several high-ranking officials about whether the president tried to interfere with the Russian Federation probe, CNN noted.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether President Donald Trump tried to obstruct justice, also is probing the finances and business dealings of the president's son-in-law, who is one of the president's top advisers.

Dianne Feinstein, top Democrat on the US Senate Judiciary Committee, said she was "increasingly concerned" that Trump will fire both Mueller and Rosenstein.

Until Mr Rosenstein decides to formally recuse himself from the matter he has the ultimate authority over the special counsel he appointed to investigate any possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, and the extent of Russian meddling in the election overall.


"They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story".

On Monday night, National Security Agency chief Michael Rogers met with the Senate Intelligence Committee about those matters; Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats was doing the same around the time of the President's afternoon tweets. The Washington Post first reported the Cullen hire.

Comey told a Senate panel last week he believed Trump had directed him to drop an agency investigation into Flynn. "Nice", the president tweeted. A day later, Mr Rosenstein appointed Mr Mueller, who was at the helm of the Federal Bureau of Investigation during the September 11 attacks, as special counsel.

The US President announced on Friday that he was being investigated for firing former FBI Director James Comey, and seemingly trained his guns on deputy attorney general accusing him of overseeing a "witch hunt" against him. The investigation now reportedly includes the President himself, after Senate testimony by Mr Comey indicated that he had tried to get him to drop an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn's Russian Federation connections. Grassley said Comey's dismissal and Comey's testimony on Lynch should be looked at together, noting that Comey "took the opportunity in his testimony to clear his own name by denouncing as false the administration's claims that the FBI rank-and-file had lost confidence in Mr. Comey's leadership in the wake of the Clinton email investigation".

The President began his day by saying there was "zero proof" of any links between Russian Federation and members of his campaign.
