Donald Trump labels Russian interference investigation ‘witch hunt’ in tweets defending performance

The Russian Foreign Ministry has criticized President Donald Trump’s decision to freeze a detente with Cuba and his verbal attack on the Caribbean island’s leaders. “The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction”.

But Sekulow claimed the president wasn’t referring to an actual investigation in the message, but instead a news report about one.

The FBI’s probe into Russian election interference and the Senate Intelligence Committee’s concurrent investigation into the matter will not be hindered by any tweets or statements from the president, Sen.

Rubio said “a full and thorough and credible investigation that reveals everything” is “the best thing that can happen for everybody”, including Trump. He said a Friday tweet from Trump was specifically directed at a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia’s election meddling.

Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, attorney Jay Sekulow said the “president is not under investigation by the special counsel”.

“If I were the President, I would be welcoming this investigation”, Rubio said on CBS News’ “Face the Nation”.

“He said that if, in light of all of this, the removal of James Comey would lengthen the amount of time that this investigation would take – he thought it was in the best interest of the American people”, Sekulow said.

In a two-part tweet posted before 7 a.m. Sunday, Trump wrote: “The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt”.

“Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm”, he wrote today, also pointing to his successful nomination of conservative justice Neil Gorsuch to the top United States court. Marco Rubio said Sunday that he does not expect Trump to seek to fire them.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is investigating how Russians attempted to interfere with the 2016 US election previous year, and how they could try again in future elections, as well as whether or not there could have been any link to associates of the Trump campaign.

The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee says the panel is looking forward to getting a response from the White House this week as to whether President Donald Trump has tapes of private conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey. “And I believe that it will”. “Bottom line is, we are going to continue to do our work”.

“And as far as that goes, I’d say we’re 20 percent into it, just to throw a number at it”.
