Mueller offers Trump team new proposal for interview

Trump Calls for Sessions to End Russia Probe

Trump Calls for Sessions to End Russia Probe

He said that FBI Agent Peter Strzok (on the Mueller team) should have recused himself on day one.

Lawmakers on both sides immediately spoke out in support of the probe.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly informed lawyers for President Donald Trump that he is willing to limit in-person questions in an interview and settle for some written answers.

Sessions was an ardent Trump supporter and had met Russia's ambassador to the US Sergei Kislyak during Trump's campaign and later had to recuse himself from the Russian probe according to the US Department of Justice guidelines.

Is the tweet suggesting Attorney General Jeff Sessions shut down the Mueller investigation, in itself, obstruction of justice? "Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to the U.S.!"

Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said the tweet was "an attempt to obstruct justice hiding in plain sight" and that "America must never accept it".

In June, Trump's 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, called for Sessions to be fired and "end the Mueller investigation". "It's the president's opinion", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a news briefing.

Writing on Twitter, Trump dismissed the charges against Manafort as "old charges [that] have nothing to do with Collusion" and questioned why the government did not tell him that Manafort was under investigation before he hired him to be part of his 2016 campaign.

Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's legal team, which is negotiating how, when and on what subjects Mueller will question the president, has said before that Trump is keen to be interviewed to clear his name.

Chamisa said he had his own results from most of the almost 11,000 polling stations, saying he would wait for the official tally. "We are however seriously concerned about evidence of interference. there is a deliberate delay in announcing the results".

Trump's lawyers have been negotiating over an interview with Mueller since the end of past year.

She did not explain what that might be, since the trial is about alleged financial crimes predating Manafort's brief tenure on the Trump 2016 campaign and the fact that the judge in the case has ordered prosecutors to avoid even mentioning the defendant's ties to the president.

But Trump's early morning tweetstorm again raised the specter that he could try to more directly bring special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia-Trump election-collusion probe to a premature end. Giuliani said. "We have every reason to believe they don't have anything of the President doing anything wrong".

Don't miss out on the latest news and information. Trump accepted Putin's denials despite the intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election, though the president later conceded there was interference.

"Just because @realDonaldTrump obstructs justice in full public view by calling on Sessions to interfere in Mueller investigation doesn't mean it's not obstruction of justice".

He has so far lodged dozens of indictments, including those of suspected Russian hackers, and secured guilty pleas from at least three Trump aides charged with conspiracy and lying to investigators.

"I've said all along I see no evidence of collusion". Then you'd all battle whether he has the legal right to do that, which I think he does.

"We continue to see a pervasive messaging campaign by Russian Federation to try to weaken and divide the United States", said Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

"How is it OK for Hillary Clinton to proactively seek dirt from the Russians by the Trump campaign met at the Russians request and that is bad?"
