Trump transition team ordered to save materials on Russia, Ukraine

Trump transition team ordered to save materials on Russia, Ukraine

Rosenstein, who has been on the job only about six weeks, has privately told people at the Justice Department that he may need to step aside from his role supervising the special-counsel investigation, according to officials familiar with the conversations.

Jimmy Kimmel called on a (spoof) witch to rule whether President Donald Trump is actually the subject of the "greatest witch hunt" in US political history.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says Americans should "exercise caution" when reading news reports based on anonymous sources.

Mr Trump was not under investigation before Mr Comey's firing, but reportedly is now facing scrutiny for obstruction of justice over the circumstances surrounding the ex-FBI chief's sacking, according to U.S. media.

Trump did not do anything to interfere with the investigation of Russia's interference in the election.

That tweet from this morning seemed to be a swipe at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who chose former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the Special Counsel probe of Russian election interference.

Dianne Feinstein, top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said she was "increasingly concerned" that Trump will fire both Mueller and Rosenstein. They have tried to highlight the positive reviews he received Wednesday when he made a statesman-like appearance in the White House to address the nation after Rep. Steve Scalise was shot during a congressional baseball practice.

"Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russian Federation are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?" he asked.

Special Counsel Mueller was reportedly planning to interview intelligence officials on whether Mr Trump got rid of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, James Comey, in May to hamper an inquiry into his sacked national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

It was not immediately clear what prompted the release of that statement by Rosenstein, whether it was in response to recent stories that suggested the President was under investigation for obstruction of justice, or some other reason.

"Americans should be skeptical about anonymous allegations", Rosenstein said.

During the Bush years, Brand first worked under White House counsel Alberto Gonzales (where she may have learned a thing or two about politicizing law enforcement), and then in the Justice Department's Office of Legal Policy.

President Donald Trump says it's "sad" that seven months of investigations and hearings into possible links between his campaign and Russian Federation have been fruitless. The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations.

Firing Mueller would just compound the Trump administration's growing problems. Rosenstein, who would be responsible for actually dismissing Mueller, told USA lawmakers he would fire him only with good cause.

One indication that Trump knows Mueller's in a different league than the real estate and contractor lawyers he usually faces, is that he and his minions have begun a campaign to discredited and cast doubt on Mueller, despite Trump once having Mueller on his short list to replace Comey.

Mercedes Schlapp questioned whether some of the lawyers hired by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for the Trump-Russia investigation are truly neutral.

Rosenstein has been overseeing the Russian Federation probe since shortly after Sessions recused himself.
