Deputy AG acknowledges he may need to recuse himself from Russia probe

Deputy AG acknowledges he may need to recuse himself from Russia probe

There have been multiple news reports and a tweet from Trump himself on Friday that began with: "I am being investigated".

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating business and financial dealings of White House aide Jared Kushner, the Washington Post reported on Thursday, citing officials familiar with the matter.

Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating alleged ties between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, has hired 13 lawyers to handle the probe, and has plans to add more, according to Peter Carr, his spokesman. But Trump's shift from vaguely criticizing the special prosecutor to explicitly throwing his own deputy attorney general under the bus is even more baffling.

Donald Trump's personal lawyer says the U.S. president is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential race, adding that the president has not received any notification that he is being investigated.

Mr. Rosenstein later appointed Robert Mueller to lead the investigation into ties between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, which the president has repeatedly labeled a "witch hunt".

Psyonix: Rocket League Cross Play on PS4 is 'Political Barrier'
A year later, the Nintendo Switch version of Rocket League will support cross-play, but Sony still isn't letting it happen . In a game as fast as Rocket League , having a steady frame rate as close to 60 fps as possible definitely benefits players.

Apart from Rosenstein and Sessions, the only confirmed Justice official is Rachel Brand, the associate attorney general, whom the Senate approved on a party-line vote. It also sent a letter to Comey asking for any notes or memos.

Around the same time, Comey orchestrated a series of bombshell news reports laying out portions of one-on-one conversations he allegedly had with Trump, including the infamous conversation in the Oval Office where Trump allegedly told Comey, "I hope you can let this go".

Former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich (R-GA) addresses the 42nd annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Maryland, Feb. 27, 2015.

Sekulow stressed repeatedly that Trump is not under investigation. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations", Rosenstein's full statement read. And there is no evidence that Mueller recommended to Trump that he fire Comey.

When The Washington Post reported this week that Mueller was investigating Trump for obstruction of justice, a spokesman for the President's private attorney called the leak "outrageous, inexcusable and illegal". "Sad!" Trump tweeted Friday morning.

Rosenstein has authority over the inquiry because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself on March 2 after revelations of previously undisclosed meetings with Russia's ambassador to Washington while he was a Trump campaign adviser.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has brought 13 lawyers on board to handle the Russian Federation investigation, with plans to hire more, according to his spokesman Peter Carr.

Comey used his his three-hour testimony before the Senate intelligence committee last week to launch a blistering takedown of Trump, calling him a liar no less than five times. He's increasingly focused his anger at both Rosenstein and Mueller, according to advisers and confidants, viewing the two as part of a biased effort to undermine his presidency. Then on Monday, Trump's friend Christopher Ruddy, a right-wing media executive, told "PBS NewsHour": "I think he's considering perhaps terminating the special counsel". Any discrepancy, no matter how innocent, can lead to a charge of perjury or obstruction of justice.

The memo from the transition's general counsel directs all staffers and volunteers who worked on the Trump transition to "preserve any written documents.as well as any electronic information" related to Russia, Ukraine and any foreign travel by Trump transition members.
