Trump attacks Russian Federation inquiry as judges' patience wears thin

Trump attacks Russian Federation inquiry as judges' patience wears thin

Their emergence underscores a reality of the Trump era: power and prominence on Capitol Hill these days often flow not to the most senior lawmakers but to Republicans who display allegiance to a president who prizes loyalty.

There is no indication that the Mueller investigation is being deliberately drawn out to manipulate votes.

"We do not discuss conversations we have had or may have had with the Office of Special Counsel", Sekulow told Reuters on Tuesday evening. How about Obstruction for a made up, phony crime. In January, 84 percent of people said Mr. Trump should cooperate, while the latest poll shows that number down to 76 percent.

Since Donald Trump continues to waver about his intention to give Robert Mueller an interview, his staff is simultaneously preparing the president to answer Mueller's questions while making the case that he couldn't possibly be asked to do something so demanding.

Trump has recently taken the position that what the special counsel is investigating as possible obstruction of justice is, in reality, Trump fighting back against what he considers to be false accusations.

The president has said that the investigation is led by Democrats, even though Mueller is a longtime Republican. Democrats on the committee issued a dissenting document.

"So disgraceful that the questions concerning the Russian Witch Hunt were "leaked" to the media".

Trump has previously railed about 13 "hardened" Democrats on the special counsel team.

Mueller could not have barred them from serving on the team based exclusively on their political contributions. And three of the attorneys are registered Democrats, according to reports in The Washington Post and PolitiFact.

Whether this tweet is an indication of push back Trump may be receiving from GOP leadership on firing Mueller remains to be seen. Federal regulations and Justice Department policy prohibit the consideration of political affiliation in hiring and other personnel actions involving career attorneys. Mueller revealed that the original appointment order was left vague to protect sensitive information, and that the memo was used to address the specifics of the investigation. "You are screwing with the work of the president of the United States", Dowd said he told the investigators, who are probing possible collusion between the campaign and Russian Federation.

A majority also say, however, that Mr. Trump should cooperate with Mr. Mueller, but by a slightly smaller percentage than earlier this year. The memo granted Mueller the authority to investigate "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump" and "any matters that arose or may arise directly from that investigation".
