“I’ve been reading about it from you people”.
Trump’s confidants at the White House say that Priebus, who worked closely with Trump during his campaign, was never described by the president as completely loyal to him.
Trump told reporters that he has not passed notes to Mueller through his lawyers but that his administration is working with the special counsel despite their belief that the probe is investigating something that never happened – alleged collusion by the Trump campaign with Russian Federation.
Flynn was asked to resign February 13 – one day before Comey said his discussion with Trump about Flynn occurred – after it became public that Flynn had misled Vice President Mike Pence about whether he had discussed US sanctions during pre-inauguration phone calls with the then-Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak.
Even as special counsel Robert Mueller plays patty-cake with Comey, hires one Hillary crony after another for his team and expands his investigation into whether or not Donald Trump legally bought a pack of Skittles at a 7-Eleven when he was 12, one (so-far) lone congressman thinks maybe there should be some congressional oversight. Mr. Trump fired him last month. I mean, I want them to get on with the task. “But I also want the Senate and House to come out with their findings”. John Dowd, a lawyer for Mr. Trump, said the search was similar to tactics used in Russian Federation.
“He appreciates what Bob Mueller is doing”, said Dowd.
Mueller’s investigation has gathered pace over recent weeks.
Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign chair, is quickly becoming a key figure in the Russian Federation investigation.
The change in legal counsel was announced by Manafort late Thursday.
Investigating Manafort’s money might just be small potatoes for Mueller.
The sources add it is unclear how much more Manafort will cooperate with the Congressional investigation given the expanding focus of the Mueller probe. Investigators have also made contact with some of Manafort’s business associates, Bloomberg reported. Mr. Trump has said that the meeting did not occur and that he did not ask Mr. Comey to end the inquiry.
“I haven’t given it any thought…” The president said he was surprised to learn about the search, saying it was something federal authorities “very seldom” do.
Babin spokesman Jimmy Milstead told The Daily Caller, “We don’t see why there shouldn’t be very strong support“.
