Firing Mueller would be a catastrophic mistake

Firing Mueller would be a catastrophic mistake”

"Mr. Manafort is in the process of retaining his former counsel, Miller & Chevalier, to represent him in the office of special counsel investigation", Manafort's spokesperson told BuzzFeed News in a statement. Neither did the special counsel investigating the leak of a Central Intelligence Agency operative's identity in the George W. Bush administration, said William Jeffress, a Washington attorney who represented White House aide Lewis "Scooter" Libby in that probe.

From the millions of dollars Manafort reportedly owed to pro-Russian interests, to his bank accounts in the tax haven of Cyprus, to his attendance at a 2016 meeting billed as an opportunity for the Russian government to provide the Trump campaign with information that would damage Hillary Clinton's chances in the presidential race, to his retroactive filing with the Justice Department as a foreign agent, the longtime GOP operative seems to have a toe in nearly every part of the special counsel's sprawling probe.

Lindsey Graham recently said, "Any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency, unless Mueller did something wrong", and, "Right now, I have no reason to believe Mueller is compromised".

Committee leaders have been in talks with Trump Jr. and committee chairman Paul Manafort about private interviews.

The documents "would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russian Federation and would be very useful to your father", read the email, written by a trusted intermediary, who added, "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russian Federation and its government's support for Mr. Trump".

"I think that's pretty tough stuff", the President added. Along with attacking the attorney general on Twitter, the President has said he would never have appointed Mr Sessions had he known the former Alabama senator would recuse himself.

Liverpool target Keita won't sign new RB Leipzig terms
Keita's current contract expires in 2020. "It does not matter at all whether it's 75million or 100 million Euros. We want to be successful in sports".

Moreover, the committee has received documents from the Trump administration about the Russian-American lobbyist, Rinat Akhmetshin, who also attended the Trump Tower meeting, the sources said.

After reports began to surface about Manafort's suspect financial and political dealings in Ukraine and Russia, Manafort suddenly resigned as campaign chairman. I don't recall Newt Gingrich having any problem with Starr's probe back when he was House Speaker, but as a leading Trump surrogate, Gingrich certainly has his knickers in a twist over the Russian Federation investigation.

Mr. Trump said he had not spoken to Mr. Manafort "for a long time" but that he has "always found Paul Manafort to be a very decent man". 'Russia had nothing to do with me winning, ' he said.

This is a serious development for sure, and we'll likely learn what if anything of interest was recovered during the raid as Robert Mueller's investigation concludes.

Manafort appears to be in the limelight of the federal investigation into alleged Russian interference in the presidential election, and any ties between Russia and the Trump campaign.
